Taming the Beast - shadow and shine

Getting artwork to look dimensional is one of my favorite things. I've always been fascinated with Trompe L'oeil. Trompe L'oeil is a French term that means 'to fool the eye'. If you google it will will find some pretty amazing stuff.

Trompe L'oeil is all about getting the shadows and shines in the right places. I know this tile isn't quite there (I can find all sorts of goofs) but it's fun to try.


  1. This tile is wonderful. The little "beast" is quite confined and this really does look 3-d! Great Job!

  2. Really well done! The shading adds so much. I enjoy trompe l'oeil too.

  3. WOW Sue, I think it's very well done,
    And yes it's realy 3D.
