Check out the mazing creations of 3d artist Fiona Tang whose has designed beasts that are so realistic they appear to jump out of the page at you!
Fiona Tang, a talented artist from Vancouver, has created an awesome series of dark creatures that, despite their grim and ethereal composition, nonetheless seem ready to leap off of the page at you.
Tang, who is a student at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, achieves this effect in part by drawing her beasts on large pieces of paper, which allows her to make most of them life-sized. And it helps that her artistic training gives her a great sense of perspective.
“I love sketching, to the point where I will catch myself looking at my surrounding as sketches,” says Tang, who uses charcoal, chalk pastels, acrylic paint, conte and ink in her drawings. “Art is not only my passion, but also my outlet and therapy; it always manages to cheer me up.”
Tang pulls off her convincing illusions using a technique called trompe l’oeil, which uses realistic imagery to make 2D objects appear 3D. This technique, combined with Tang’s expressive gestural method of drawing, make for impressive, eye-popping artworks that seem to have a life of their own.
Although the artworks look incredibly three-dimensional, each piece is actually a completely flat and 2D drawing, created using a variety of media like charcoal, acrylic paint, conte, and chalk pastel.
