My name is "Grease" and this is my first Instructable.
I would like to "Thank You" for stopping by.

Have you ever seen the 3D Anamorphic pictures that Julian Beever has drawn on the sidewalks, streets and driveways
Well, this is my version of doing it, on printed paper, from your computer.
I did do a chalk drawing of the lighter.
You will have to go to step 8, to see all the pictures.

It is pretty simple to do.
I did all my artwork in Coreldraw X3.
Any Vector program would work.

I used a cigarette lighter, as the artwork.

I think it worked out quite well!

If you want to learn my technique,
please proceed on...

Can YOU tell which is the REAL lighter??

Yet, another 3D drawing instructable that I made.
Here is where it is located:
3D Drawings in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6

Step 1: The GRID

The first thing I did was draw the grids as shown below.
I drew the blue grid first.
Then I added perspective to the blue grid and turned it into a black grid.
(you could trace over my grids)

In Coreldraw X3 I used the Add Perspective Effect.
<p>honestly i just wish there was a way to do this with hardware( e.g. pencil and paper)</p>
Ok so if I have a 3d editor... I just have to project the sceen on a 2d plane which would be my 2d surface from the eye point where I usually stand... and print this 2d plane texture... free shadows
you lost me...<br>
<p>If you know what to look for in reality and not reality then you could easily tell that the lighter on the right is the fake one. You can tell by the shading, the lighting, and the fact that it would be impossible to draw something EXACTLY like the real thing, it is possible however to draw something very close to the real thing but it will never be exactly like it.</p>
Well, I tried!<br>I thought I did a pretty good job at it!
<p>I forgot to add the link! Check this cool idea out they are making roads safer with 3D paintings!</p><p><a href="http://amazyble.com/creative/india-slow-speeding-drivers-3d-paintings-speed-breakers/">http://amazyble.com/creative/india-slow-speeding-drivers-3d-paintings-speed-breakers/</a></p>
Yes, very nice!<br>Thank you!
<p>These are too cool! I HAVE to try this! Thanks for all the info!</p>
<p>i can tell by the shadows ;-)</p>
<p>Thank you very much, after read your instructable, i just made a 3d picture of tiger.</p>
Your Mighty welcome!<br>Glad you enjoyed it!
I know I'm a bit late but this is really cool! My town has an art sidewalk chalk art competition during the festival this summer. I think I will do something like this ?. Thanks for the epic instructible!
Thank you very much, glad you liked it!<br>Post pictures if you do a chalk drawing!
<p>I think that the &quot;take a second to vote&quot; and &quot;guess which is the real lighter&quot; is to much in the intro</p>
Thank you!<br><br>I did take it out!<br>Have a good day!
<p>Very very good .</p><p>And thanks for sharing knowledge.</p>
<p>Very informative.. Will try someday</p>
<p>hi guys, anybody who perfectly understood the first 3steps kindly take me through them, i have coreldraw x3 n after drawing the grid i see stars after that i don't know what to do. I really like her method and would love to learn it and integrate it</p>
<p>Oh, did you convert you photo to vectors? You have to do that or the Add perspective will not work....</p>
<p>am going hand in hand with the steps in the tutorial and am not yet at the point where you add the lighter, am still stuck somewhere at step 1..is there any other way to do it or which coreldraw is you using...?</p>
<p>Now, using the Add Perspective Effect.</p><p>I lined up the black grid with the blue grid, as shown.<br>I used a lot of pushing, pulling and nudging the nodes in<br>Add Perspective mode.</p>

<p>Great instructable, thanks! For people who doesn't have access to Corel, it seems to be possible using Inkscape (free software). Here is a tutorial on a perspective tool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMbIPleMiZ0</p>
<p>Great info, thanks! Glad you like my instructable!</p>
<p>I dont have Photoshop so i cant really do it but plz could you do it for me sorry for any inconviniance</p><p>A.S.A.P</p>
<p>Your gonna need a better photo with more contrast and higher resolution!</p>
<p>Is there a method for transforming a jpeg image into a anamorphic projection? I will be using the CS6 Adobe suite. </p>
Absolutely. It is what I used.... an older version of Adobe (CS), but it can be done.
<p>I am not familiar with Adobe, sorry...</p>
I recreated your graphs in Illustrator so I could use them in layers in photoshop. I used predrawn clipart for my first attempt, following your instructions. This is what I got... I'm totally stoked!
<p>Great idea! : )</p>
<p>hi how can i get add perspective image to grid.sorry but i m new to coraldraw</p>
<p>you have to convert artwork to vectors, or the </p><p>ADD perspective effect would not work.</p>

This is really cool! Thanks for sharing it. Great work! I am going to try this out.
I love your drawings. Your drawings are just what I was searching for. How can you make them look so realistic and 3 dimensional.
Thank you..Glad you found the instructable!
