    Forced perspective backdrops - WIP

    I was in the shower thinking about how I take pictures, and I thought there got to be a better way to do my backdrops. I use a lot of force perspective on the floor sheets that I use and even made a small program to make any kind of floor sheet I want with forced perspective:

    Here's are some that I've done in the past:

    But a wanted to try something new, a full sheet forced perspective backdrop.

    So I spent all morning working on some new code to make full sheet forced perspective:

    Here's how it looks from a different angle:


    So now that my test bed is done I'm working on a full 3D view that is high res to print on poster paper for my MOTUC figures. If it works well you'll see my figures with these new backdrops.

    Very, very cool, He-bro!

    It's a nice, subtle effect, but it adds a lot to a display. I love it!

    Very cool. Love the idea!
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans! - the source for marvel figure information.

    The principle of the chalk guy and He-Bro is differnt. He-Bro uses two dimensions, one very stretched and pulled upward. The chalk guy, i presume you mean the one who only paints on the ground, uses just the stretched perspektive and it only works in a specific angle. Like in the spoiler, a different angle reveals the strangeness of the image.

    But both methods are insane and extremely cool.
    Good work He-Bro
