Une trompe-d’oeil

Hi everybody. I’m Beautychaser but it’s actually Patrick. Yes, I’m chasing beauty, most of the time. It comes in all forms, to everybody and of course differently. Never thought I would chase it here on F so intensely. And what a joy it is to combine creativity and knowledge, experience and especially to share it. And I’m convinced this forum adds and encourages that to everybody.

Let me show you a face of mine. I just worked out, hey, I got many (and that’s what my partner says…).

In every face I make, I noticed there’s always something that pushes me harder to focus on. This time, was to maximise on 3D, creating this illusion, “une trompe-l’oeil“.

So, anyway, I like to see and learn about which techniques you all, use to create an illusion. Let’s restrict that to F-experiences. Thanks for every contribution to this topic.

The second face give me this retro feeling of everlasting grandeur. Really, the hands, so beautiful and on top of the second hand, an almost hidden battery, sliding along the second hand. Combining the second hand with a watch battery is so out of the box. And you know, I like that a lot! Thanks for sharing!

Hope others chime in to expand on the aspects of illusion in a face. I remember once standing in a little church in Milano where some painter painted a trompe l’oeil on a big wall. They fooled me - still after so many centuries - letting me thinking that there was a big hall! I thought, then, I heard the painter laughing, again. Funny, I like to do that now on F, too.
