Here are some spectacular examples of 3D sidewalk drawings.
Horror On Road:
In this drawing the cars are lying directly on the road. It is unbelievable that there is no water or molten lava on the road instead, it is just a colored chalks drawing. This drawing is looking horrible.
Depth And Verticality:
In this drawing it is unbelievable that here is no hexagonal ditch. The man in green shirt is standing on the floor. But the drawing is showing depth and vertical expansion in an amazing manner. The color of chalks used in drawing is in harmony with the color of floor.
The minaret you can see in yellow and gray stone is actually just a colored chalk drawing made on the floor. It is creating an amazing visual illusion. It is drawn horizontally but when viewed at right angle it looks vertical.
In this image the artist has made an imaginary ditch with colored chalks. It seems real when viewed at right angle. It can distract a person walking perpendicular on the pavement.
Well Of Ghosts:
