Please don't eat me!! by kenglye Please don't eat me!! by kenglye
This is a photograph of an art piece
Acrylic on resin.

This was part of my experiment on this medium, after trying out applying acrylic paint straight on to the resin,
I've decided to incorporate another element into this medium, for this instance it was a piece of pebble.
The whole idea here was to give the art work a even more 3D effect therefore you can view it at any angle,
That's all this experiment is all about.

Sorry if I had mislead many of you thinking it was completely painted on a flat surface.
Nevertheless, it is still achievable by using the traditional way, which is painting on multiple layers of resin.

Reaction 1: HOLY CRAP IS THAT AN OCTOPUS :noes:
Reaction upon skimming the description: Hmmm... okay... maybe it's a sculpture. An extremely realistic sculpture. Maybe it doesn't belong in the paintings category. Wait a second...
Reaction upon reading the description more closely: This... this ISN'T a fully sculpted, fully 3D creature? What am I even looking at??

The illusion of depth you've created is very, very convincing. So convincing that my brain was confused. That pebble blends in perfectly with the flat parts and it really solidifies that illusion. A very well-deserved DD.
