    A funny idea (Extreme update)

    Here I used AR to quickly compose a friend of mine's idea, a stylized world and painter painting a realistic artpiece (actually part of Caravaggio's most famous still life I made an initial copy of some time ago).
    The poition of the painter reminds a famous Duehrer painting of himself while painting (although turned the other way).
    Finally, the painter is an essential caricature of my friend, whos is an amateur painter too, reminding his initial style.
    I hope You'll find it interesting also for the fact that, before coloring him, I outlined him graphically with the art pen in a few of seconds and lines, a litle bit like ancient chinese and japanese painters such as Hokusai.

    I went to an anticipated, most paradoxical version here.
    A one-dimensional painter (he's just a line protuberance) is painting on a two-dimensional canvas the realistic simulation of a three-dimensional view. Could we ever do the same and paint a four-dimensional view?

    haha like it,
    Giuseppe Dell'Aquila did something on the same lines, looking forward to this as a finished piece, like your parrot too

    Thank You, dear Pat! AR features are very useful to spare much time in some compositions ...

    I don't know of Giuseppe Dell'Aquila, dear Jules, but I'm glad You appreciated. Thank You!

    Very clever idea and very well done! The stylized drawing looks very professional.

    Really cool concept its like a designer in reverse. In design you take the complex and simplify, whereas the character here is taking from the simplistic world and complicating it. Love it

    Thank You, dear Sketch! The art pen aspect ratio setting can allow You to change the line thickness an this helps. If this could be done also with the pencil on a cheap tablet, it would be great and my drawings would really take-off ...

    Thank You, dear Juz! What You say is absolutely right!
    When I was a child there was here a brilliant advertisement cartoon where a man was a curvature outline moving on a straight line and intereacting with similar objects.
    Next could then be to have this world all on a line so has to have a one dimension world painter painting a two dimensional artpiece (on a canvas) a three dimensional subject ....
    Could we ever be able to make a three dimensional painting simulating a four dimensional scene?

    Dear Caesar,
    What a light hearted but true to life illustration of an artist this is.
    Uncomplicated lines and colors moves the viewer directly into the
    intent of the painting .. an artist and his need to create. Wonderful
    piece and presentation.

    Thank You, dear Jasmine! I futherly explored the paradoxical thought in the second version, although I should have made a more precise outline of this being living on a boundaryless line ....

    The pose was mentally mutuated bu the great Albecht Duehrer, dear Mair, probably the greatest German painter and among the greatest painters ever. I just reminded it from my neurons, more or less, and changed it into a caricature out of a unique continuous line.
    Thank You! I remind also of a similar pose in a Norman Rockwell self-portrait ....
