I have long considered how to incorporate some 3D elements into my artwork, but wasn't quite sure how to execute it, so I just kept putting it off and putting it off. But, after doing some research and planning the project out, I decided to give it a shot. So I headed down to Menard's and picked up a sheet of Masonite, got the elements sketched onto the board, broke out the newly purchased jigsaw...and go started cutting everything out. Once it was all cut out, I gave it a quick sanding and put a coat of gesso down. After some more sanding and another coat of gesso, it was time to start getting the pieces assembled. Without boring you with all the details, you can see the latest progress pic of this Mike Trout 3D oil painting above. It's certainly a unique project, and I am really enjoying the challenge of something completely new for me.
The amount of support and interest people have shown in this piece is greatly appreciated! So, thank you if you're one of the people that have "liked", "retweeted", etc. on social media. It certainly does not go unnoticed.
With that in mind, if you would like your very own custom 3D painting, just click the button below to email me with as many details as you can provide (size, medium, subject, etc.), and I will get back to you as soon as I can with prices. I hope to create an updated Pricing List to include my digital artwork and my 3D artwork sometime soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
I also wanted to pass along a quick 'thank you' to Vistaprint for sharing a bit of my story as part of their ongoing "Magnify Micro Business" campaign for small businesses.
Thanks again for checking out my Blog! I hope to hear from you sometime soon to discuss a project of your very own.
Not rocket science, just a bit of an inside look at my artwork...with some photos and possibly some humor mixed in for your enjoyment.
