3-D Paintings Of Fish And Octopuses In Resin 'Water'

November 1, 2013


These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most impressive. The costumes in the costume contest last night? Not so much. It looked like everybody just made their costumes in the car on the drive over. Like actually while driving.

Keep going for a bunch more. Oh, and the octopus heads that poke out of the water are pebbles.











Thanks to my frenemy Terry, who just bought ten $20 lotto scratchers in a row and they were all losers. Now, everybody laugh at him with me -- AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. God that felt good.

    Fairly certain this person is actually stepping on the toes of artist Riusuke Fukahori http://www.thisiscolossal.c... I'm not going to say I'm 100% certain and know I'm right, but I believe articles about Fukahori were around a few months before any about Kenglye appeared. Don't quote me on it though. :)

    Yeah! I knew I saw this technique somewhere else too. Still cool though.

  • Inkyspilly

    Yeah, definitely impressive. :)

    If the first guy that put ink on an easel was the only guy, we'd have an issue.

    Wouldn't it give the same result to make the objects first and them dip them in resin? Impressing anyway.

  • It's craftsmanship like this that which reinforces my suspicions, that too many modern 'artists' choose to paint in abstract form because they can't really draw crap.

  • Art History Junkie

    *le sigh* Dali painted with surrealism, but was HIGHLY trained in other traditional painting styles. The man could paint like Rembrandt and Caravaggio, but he chose to express himself with surrealism.

    It's opinions like this that reinforce my suspicions that too many people don't really know artists before making assumptions that they can't really draw.

  • why the le you retard


    Seriously?? We are on geekologie, not 9gag you little shit

  • Frédéric Purenne

    He said ABSTRACT, not surrealism, impressionism other kinds... Abstracts are circles next to slightly angled rectangles, or a dot in the middle of a yellow wall or someone who threw, farted or sneezed paint on a canvas. And they are PURE SHIT!

  • Exactly. And I wasn't even referring to someone like Picasso, or even Pollock, but the contemporary wannabes who fill so many art galleries nowadays :)

  • JeanbearTheImmasculator

    Pollock is pure shit. Sorry.

  • Gnome

    Would love to see your work...

    The styles you keep referring are over done.
    That's why they don't get a lot of attention.
    Photography is overly done.. everyone has Photoshop and a nice camera now day.
    If you aren't artistically inclined... Then sharing an opinion in a negative just makes you a critic. And we all know what we think of Critics.

  • Please see the comments below between me & AHJ. My main point: Craftsmanship matters. Yes, anyone has a camera & Photoshop nowadays; everyone has a word processor too & a blog, but that doesn't mean the world is filled with a million Herman Melvilles.

    Art discussions on Geekologie: sweeeet!

  • Art History Junkie

    Oh excuse me. I forget how art snobs work. The correlation is still there. I guess I could have mentioned Mondrians early impressionist work...or Picassos. And by comparison to how long art has been around, those are considered modern artists.

    It doesn't change the judgmental mentality, or the fact that, just because you don't know about an artists background or what they aren't famous for, doesn't mean they don't have traditional skills.

    But you know, feel free to post your own portfolios.

    I guess someone should have told Roger Ebert not to be a critic until he made amazing films himself. Damn, should have known.

  • Ralfone

    I throw my own poo at canvas!
