This week I have worked on a fascinating art form called anamorphic drawing. I completed the drawing and explain the steps on how to create an anamorphic drawing in a tutorial. The tutorial can be viewed in my TUTORIAL section.
The purpose of this tutorial is to show you how to create an anamorphic image with Adobe Photoshop and then use this image as a template to create an anamorphic drawing.
An Anamorphic image is a deformed image that appears in its true shape when viewed in some “unconventional” way, according to Webster’s Dictionary. Perspective Anamorphosis date back to the fifteen century. The earliest known artist who made use of this was Leonardo Da Vinci.
An Anamorphic image is therefore nothing but a distorted projection or drawing that appears normal when viewed from a particular angle or with a suitable mirror or lens.
Anamorphic drawings are difficult to detect with the eye. However, the effect is clearly seen through the lens of a camera or by taking a photograph.
