There are 16 Circles in this Image. It’s Like a Simpler ‘Magic Eye’ https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/there-are-16-circles-in-this-image-its-like-a-simpler-magic-eye/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/there-are-16-circles-in-this-image-its-like-a-simpler-magic-eye/#respond Thu, 15 Jul 2021 22:01:44 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=168617

 

Remember those ‘magic eye’ images? The ones everyone could see but you? (maybe it was just me). Well here’s an image in a similar vein only it’s not as hard (imo). Sure you still need to avert your gaze a bit, but when you see the answer key below hopefully you’ll be able to see all 16 circles!

The image was recently posted to reddit and I have to admit I was stumped until I saw the answer key below. Even then, it still takes me some time to ‘see’ the circles.

Feeling a little more confident I decided to try one of those magic eye images again and… nope. Still can’t see it. Sigh.

Paradise: A Modern Day Interpretation of the ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’ https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/paradise-a-modern-day-interpretation-of-the-garden-of-earthly-delights-2/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/07/15/paradise-a-modern-day-interpretation-of-the-garden-of-earthly-delights-2/#respond Thu, 15 Jul 2021 00:54:15 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167934

 

Animation artists Studio Smack, best known for their music video Witch Doctor by De Staat, were asked to ‘go crazy’ with a modern-day interpretation of one of the most famous paintings by Early Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights.

For this work, Studio Smack cleared the original landscape of the middle panel of Bosch’s painting (the original was a triptych) and reconstructed it into a hallucinatory 4K animation. The creatures that populate this indoor playground embody the excesses and desires of 21st century Western civilization. Consumerism, selfishness, escapism, the lure of eroticism, vanity and decadence. All characters are metaphors for our society where loners swarm their digital dream world. They are symbolic reflections of egos and an imagination of people as they see themselves – unlike Bosch’s version, where all individuals more or less look the same.

These characters, once precisely painted dream figures, are now digitally created 3D models. All of them have been given their own animation loop to wander through the landscape. By placing them altogether in this synthetic fresco, the picture is never the same. What the animation and Bosch’s triptych have in common is that you’ll hardly be able to take it all in, you can watch it for hours.

‘Paradise’ was commissioned by the MOTI Museum in The Netherlands for the exhibition New Delights, which was part of the Hieronymus Bosch 500-year anniversary. A gigantic video installation of this work was exhibited in the Museum last year but has since ended.

Below you can see the original painting by Hieronymus Bosch and learn more about ‘The Garden of Earthly Delights’

 

Hieronymus Bosch, The Garden of Earthly Delights, oil on oak panels, 220 cm × 389 cm (87 in × 153 in), Museo del Prado, Madrid

 

The Garden of Earthly Delights is the modern title given to a triptych oil painting on oak panel painted by the Early Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch, housed in the Museo del Prado in Madrid since 1939. It dates from between 1490 and 1510, when Bosch was between 40 and 60 years old.

As so little is known of Bosch’s life or intentions, interpretations of his intent have ranged from an admonition of worldly fleshy indulgence, to a dire warning on the perils of life’s temptations, to an evocation of ultimate sexual joy. The intricacy of its symbolism, particularly that of the central panel, has led to a wide range of scholarly interpretations over the centuries. Twentieth-century art historians are divided as to whether the triptych’s central panel is a moral warning or a panorama of paradise lost. Peter S. Beagle describes it as an “erotic derangement that turns us all into voyeurs, a place filled with the intoxicating air of perfect liberty”. [source]

 

 

 

 

The exterior panels show the world during creation, probably on the Third Day, after the addition of plant life but before the appearance of animals and humans.

Twenty Skies https://www.artofit.org/2021/05/17/twenty-skies/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/05/17/twenty-skies/#respond Mon, 17 May 2021 19:21:35 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167485

Check out this surreal image by Alex Hyner. The image was created using twenty skies from around the world, all brought together around one special telephone pole in Los Angeles.

On reddit, Hyner adds:

“These are not taken from the same vantage point or anything. I snapped the telephone pole the other day and the idea came to me. I just dug into my hard drive for different skies. A few are from Fiji, many from California. Some I used the same sky and just changed the color to appear to be a different sky. A lot of those puffy clouds are just from the other day after some rain, and what looks like Mars is just a low setting sun I shot from my street in Los Angeles about six months ago!”

 

Prints are available through Hyner’s website and you can see more of his artwork on Instagram.

A Photorealistic Image of George Washington If He Lived in the Present Day https://www.artofit.org/2021/05/17/a-photorealistic-image-of-george-washington-if-he-lived-in-the-present-day/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/05/17/a-photorealistic-image-of-george-washington-if-he-lived-in-the-present-day/#respond Mon, 17 May 2021 17:36:01 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167429

 

Artist and redditor, KingBaboon97, recently shared this amazing photorealistic image of George Washington if he lived in the present day. To achieve this, the artist explained:

“Lots of source images of people with the correct features. Glenn Close, Michael Douglas, a wax work of Washington, and Roger Williams. Then just knowledge of photoshop, and working at it bit by bit. So, he’s a blend of those people really, in reference to paintings of him.”

 

So beyond technical Photshop and compositing skills, researching and finding relevant source images of similar looking people is integral to achieving the final image. The artist says there are other historical figures he’d love to attempt such as Shakespeare.

Abraham Lincoln Gets the Present Day Photo Treatment https://www.artofit.org/2021/05/17/abraham-lincoln-gets-the-present-day-photo-treatment/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/05/17/abraham-lincoln-gets-the-present-day-photo-treatment/#respond Mon, 17 May 2021 16:50:51 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167398

 

After a photorealistic image of a present day George Washington went viral this week, Abraham Lincoln has now received the same treatment. This time, reddit user eoford used the FaceApp AI editor on his phone to create the composite.

It’s worth noting that the digital artist who created the George Washington image used numerous source photos (e.g., Glenn Close, Michael Douglas, Roger Williams) and extensive Photoshop while this Lincoln version was done using an AI-powered mobile app in mere seconds.

Which historical figure do you want to see next?

Wait, What? These Two Photos Are Completely Identical (With Proof) https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/wait-what-these-two-photos-are-completely-identical-with-proof/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/wait-what-these-two-photos-are-completely-identical-with-proof/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 15:11:30 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167212

 

If you showed me these two photos I would say they are similar. Perhaps taken from the same vantage point and distance but shot with a different lens or focal length? If you told me they were identical in every way (i.e., angle for angle, pixel for pixel, etc.) I might have to call you a liar!

Just look at the curb! It’s a completely different angle! But alas..

 

 

Wait, what? Now, like most illusions not everyone will see it. To some of you with ‘super vision’, perhaps they look identical in every way, shape and form; but to many, they just aren’t the same.

Here’s more ‘proof’..

The Artwork for Oregon’s Anime-Inspired Tourism Spot is Beautiful https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/the-artwork-for-oregons-anime-inspired-tourism-spot-is-beautiful-2/ https://www.artofit.org/2021/04/08/the-artwork-for-oregons-anime-inspired-tourism-spot-is-beautiful-2/#respond Thu, 08 Apr 2021 09:09:51 +0000 https://www.artofit.org/?p=167056

 

In today’s media-saturated world it can be challenging for a state tourism board to garner any attention. So Travel Oregon decided to try something different, an anime-inspired spot featuring beautiful artwork of popular places in Oregon with a surreal twist.

From the iconic Crater Lake to the towering Mt. Hood and the amazing hiking trails and landscapes in between, the ‘Only Slightly Exaggerated’ animation creatively portrays the natural beauty of Oregon. Stills from the spot can be seen below.
 
Written and produced by Wieden + Kennedy
Animation by Psyop & Sun Creatures Studio
