This was an exceedingly fun project to construct. I hope you like it at least a little. :):) Comments and commentary welcomed.
100% AR3;
Ink pen, gloop pen, custom stikers for some form skins, glitter for bump lighting, blur palette blender to turn glitter into forms, select tool to block in forms, eraser. No filters or stencils.EDIT: Jan. 11, 2010: TUTORIAL ADDED: There have been several requests asking for a tutorial on how to create the 3D-like appearance in the painting. I have posted a simple tutorial in post #22 of this thread. Hope it helps for those who are interested. The construction process is actually quite a bit of fun and fairly straightforward. :)

If I didn't know any better I would swear you used some sort of 3D rendering software to do this. Absolutely amazing. How in the world did you get that effect??? This is totally awesome and it goes directly into my "need to study" folder! You have had a few lately that go in there. Totally cool, totally fun, total success!:cool::D:D

Thanks everybody for the enthusiastic feedback. Has made my evening before crashing for the night. :):)

Eddie, through some methodical steps you can get this effect pretty easy by transforming glitter contained in an area with a geometric stencil or with a barrier created with the select tool and adjusting the settings on the palette knife blur feature - then apply paint on the created form or on layers above it. It's kind of magical - and lots of fun if you can get into the "construction" scheme of things. :):):)

This one goes right into my collection folder of yours. Awesome creation. It reminds me of those beautiful chocolate wrappers in a tin box and each one tastes so different so as your each different pattern. :):)

Stunning Byron--reminds me of an aerial view of a bunch of giftwrapped presents--but your paintings are always a gift to view! More thoughts, but no more time at the moment! Great!

Oh sweet. I've been looking at various different ways to create a texture that appears really rough, and this might be a winner. I'm going to have to go try this. Thanks for posting that! Super cool idea!

Byron, this is stunning....the 3D dimension makes me believe, there must be chocolate , just grab on square and open it....and the title of the work.... very suitable... unpronouciable....

Congratulations Byron. You invented a new kind of art. 3d Block art would be
a good name for it:D

Thank you all for the wonderful feedback. Much appreciated, each and every post.

I have received PM's plus feedback here asking how to produce the effect. It's a fairly simple approach illustrated in the simple tutorial in the attached image. Give it a try. Experiment with the settings and you'll achieve a variety of results. It's a lot of fun. Questions - just give a yell. And thanks again for all the warm feedback. :):):)

Select and blow up the image. It will be easier to read.

I tried this as per your advice several days ago. I got the concrete slabs I wanted, along with some other very interesting effects. I'm experimenting with embossing and/or engraving images into those solids with stencils. I am hoping to achieve a weathered relief effect.

Thats just brilliant! I am not sure I would have ever stumbled onto it, thanks Byron!

Sketch Jr.: I'm honored you stopped by and that you liked the painting. I really like the way you painted that trout. He seemed like a happy trout.

Dear Byron, what a nice art you made! Very original. You should develop more of these kind of artworks with same rectangle shapes but other compositions and different colour and pattern fillings. It's worth to experiment with a combination of compositions of huge and small rectangle "chocolate bars". This might become the start of a huge and endless collection you could build out. Very nice, I'd like to see more of those in the future.

Those things are very attractive for the eye and mood and above all very distinctive. Theo Doesburg and Piet Mondriaan would have been jalous about you. Let them come, paint sir, paint!

I meant to come back to this last night after my son finished commandeering my computer to comment on this! Awesome and brilliant little tutorial. I would have never, ever, thought of doing that. There really is life beyond the crayon! lol! Thanks for sharing that Byron... Now I must play! :D
