Here is a cool picture of Joe Liptak sculpting a scene for the Viewmaster reel of Peter Pan.
I've been playing with stereoscopic drawings and went hunting for information on how the Viewmaster Company made their very cool 'drawn' reels. We all know the company made sculptures and photographed them with a 3D camera,(Animated GIF of Tigger), but how did they do the drawn ones?
Some were your typical drawings cut up into planes like most anaglyph printing of artwork. The best had depth that bent back into space and appeared to have actual round edges,(Animated GIF of Space Mouse).
If you have any information on how they created theses astonishing images please contact me.
