The world of virtual Art and Technologies can be an overwhelming place.

The short answer is yes! We can create your 2D Painting into a 3D Model, but it does have different challenges for our design team as they have to create the digital sculpture from scratch from your painting or 2 dimensional artwork.

Here is our process:

1 - Once we have an HD picture of your art piece, we develop a creative proposal for the 3D sculpture.

2 - After your approval on the creative sketch we define the ultimate details such as lighting and texture to bring your painting or artwork into 3D.

3 - After we have the 3D model, we can add interactivity. You can manipulate your model, create an animation with sound, and embed it into your website or virtual gallery for your audience to explore.

4 - Additionally, we can bring the converted interactive 3D model into Augmented Reality!

There are a few different options for you when bringing your 2-dimensional artwork to 3D. Depending on your vision and artwork we can either bring characters or objects from the artwork to 3D and create 3-dimensional sculptures based on your art, or we can create a 3D model from your painting. Depending on your vision, our team will work closely with you to find the best solution for you and your artwork!

"It allowed the work to live outside of the traditional 2D environment. It made the artwork more interactive, shareable and portable." Nene Mahlangu, Visual Artist.
