  • Woa, crazy drawings

    http://www.csl.sri.com/users/mwfong/Sidewalk_Flats/



    i'd like to see those in real life...i think they would only look right if u see them from the correct angle/side ...otherwise i don't think they would 'work'

    was just thinking it'd be pretty funny to see the 5th picture done on a street that has car traffic...see if cars get tricked and swerve around or honk

            Aye, they are very cool.

            I saw these pics a week ago, though, and I studied them carefully. As an artist and a photoshop expert, I'm inclined to believe that at least a few of those chalk drawings are faked and a few are actually real.

            The crawling guy doesn't seem real. The artistry is too perfect. The shape of the guy, the lighting, it's all too exacting. Look at the beer bottle and glass. One is photographic, one is supposed to be a chalk drawing. But both are pratically mirror images. Even the label is facing the same way and the foam and reflections in the glass are identical. More likely, the crawling guy was photographed twice, once in each spot. Then in Photoshop, an "art" filter was applied and the two were stitched together.

            The laptop is highly suspicious if only for the reason that it spans nearly the entire width of the sidewalk in a busy city. Chalk drawings are usually done on the side in low-traffic areas or where people can easilly walk around it.

                    No, I haven't seen those. Pretty good, though. I like the effect very much. Old poster style. Good chance there are a half-dozen others like that. They look like a part of a series.

                        I wish there were pictures of multiple angles, so we could see what proportions they used to defeat the perspective.

                            I'd guess the second one is from the UK, seeing as it has John Major falling into a pit and the artist is wearing a Tony mask and the road in the background has a black cab parked on double-yellows

                              It is more than likely Photoshoppery has been used, but not in the cheating sense.

                              You see, it'd be quite easy to take a photo of the street where you're going to draw the thing, then paste the image you're going to draw on that, and stretch it so that the background is straight again.

                              As you can see, most of those pics are drawn on tiles. By stretching the image in photoshop, you get a simple plan for each tile. Helps a lot. And even that one pic with no tiles... he coulda used wires or something to make temporary tiles and removed them afterwards.

                              Everything is possible with a bit of imagination.

                              Oh, and that crawling guy. That's definitely made from a photo taken earlier.
