San Diego: Depth Charge

Donnachada Daly

It looks like Katzenberg’s mania for 3-D is rubbing off on his artists. DreamWorks animator Donnachada Daly has created a new art book called Depth Charge: 3D Illusions in which all of his lovely line drawings are presented in stereoscopic 3D. It will debut in San Diego at table B-8. For additional details, as well as instructions on how to view the 3D images without glasses, head over to Donnachada’s blog.

  • Well, I gave it a shot however I will be all day waiting for that thing to shift into gear.

    This fascination with technology just underlines the bareness of what is actually on the plate.

    Nice work. The viewing technique is similar to those “magic eye” posters a few years back.

    The next step would be to work out more than just foreground/middle ground/background planes, and get some depth in each area itself. It’s a great start though.

  • I’ve been doing some stereoscopic life drawings and am thinking about paintings.


  • I love stereoscopic stuff! Sometimes I doodle little stick figures doing stuff in stereoscopic 3-D. This is much better than that, though I agree with Paul N and think it could be pushed even more.

    Its cool and all, but I dont think stereograph is the best way to go about presenting line art. the best they can look is like cardboard cutouts.

  • Glad I still have those plastic lenses that came with my Harold Lloyd book of 3D photography.
