SDCC

San Diego Comic Con is just around the corner. I'll be there (just for a little bit) and I'll bring some originals along with me. This year, I'll be making a flying visit and enjoying the Con at a more relaxed pace. I'll be spending time doing the things I never get to do (like walk around for an extended period of time) and I can't wait.

Scott Wright, from the famed Team Spectacular will be the guy to see. He'll have a brand new book which I can't wait to get my hands on. Go say hi. He'll have some of my work with him. I'll be there on Saturday and step behind the table for a while :)

Drop by table E4. Scott will know when I'll be there.

5 Easy Steps To See A Stereogram

Congrats to all who did the Stereogram Bootcamp.

This post gives the links to those 5 Easy Steps To See A Stereogram from the bootcamp.

Very handy for those who have never seen a stereogram or who hasn't done one in a while and need a refresh on how to do it.

It should only take a few minutes to figure out, and hopefully open up a whole new dimension for you. I love hanging out within the image and I hope you do too.

Here's the 5 Easy Steps gathered together from the Stereogram Bootcamp.

Stereogram Bootcamp, Day 5. Final Day!

Graduation Day today for everyone taking the easy 5 day Stereogram Bootcamp. Hooray!

So, now you can put what you know into practice. This is the day I've added the 3D part to the stereograms. Use the techniques from the previous lessons and apply it here. For those who have never been able to see a stereogram, this might be the day you do it.

I'll give you two of the same image....the first one is for the cross eye method, and the second image is for the stare through (parallel) method.

Congrats on reaching the final step. After you merge the images together, you'll be able to see all my 3D stereogram illustrations. They are all based on the same technique where you merge or fuse the side by side images together.

This image has a little bit of everything...detail areas where your eyes can jump around to and of course 3D, where now your eyes will be able to focus on
different depths within the image too. You'll be able to practice focusing on the flower in the front of everything and then switching focus to the dots behind everything.

Let me know how it worked for you through Facebook, Twitter, email or comments. I'd love to hear your stories. Once you get this working for you, try some of my other 3D stereograms. There's a handy "Top Stereogram Links" on the top left of the blog.
Have a good look around...and through the images.

Hope you enjoyed the series and I hope I've opened up a new dimension for you.

Stereogram Bootcamp, Day 4

Stereogram Bootcamp, Day 4.

Excellent, only one day left. It makes me so happy to hear that this has been working, so keep sending the messages.

Now for the lesson for today. Easy day four!

This image uses both techniques....The cross eye way and the stare through way. (Both covered in the previous lessons in case you're playing catch up)

All the same rules apply. Either cross your eyes until the two rows merge or fuse together, OR stare through (zone out or look at your reflection in your screen to look past the image)

Again, this image has no 3D illusion in it, we're just practicing and getting used to joining the images together and training your eyes to look around while keeping focus.

Once the image merges and you can focus on it, try looking at each part separately. There's a little more detail, more points to look at and a touch of the background coming through each petal..... it gives something more for the eye to latch onto when trying to get it in focus.

If the image is a little out of focus, your eyes will adjust to it and usually will get the focus in a very short period of time. Amazingly, and a surprise to me when I first started showing my work, some people who wore glasses found it worked much better when they removed their normal glasses and tried it with the naked eye.

Everyone has a different experience, which adds to the fun. When I started doing this, I could easily do the stare through technique, but the cross eye method always was fuzzy at first, and then slowly the image focused. Now it clicks into place fully focused. I wish I had my eyes tested before I started doing this. I'm finding that I barely use my glasses now, where I used to use them all the time.

That's it for this lesson! One more to go. Click the image to make it bigger.
See you tomorrow for the last day :)
