After hitting my head against the wall with gouache I jumped back to ArtRage 4 and my trusty digital oil paints. I wanted to play around with depth this time so I painted in layers that I could later be rip apart in Maya. The hope was to build a stereoscopic painting. I’ve done this before but this time I was searching for an easier way to edit the layers after they have been assembled in Maya. Couldn’t really figure that part out. I wanted to pull everything over to Zbrush but it doesn’t do transparency. And without transparency the illusion doesn’t work. I’m still looking for a good stereoscopic painting app.
This is what the painting looks like in maya.
And here is one of those 3D gif things to give you an idea of the effect.
