Look at the pictures on that link, I'm trying to recreate the technique they've used.
Any ideas at how you'd work out what angle to distort the text to make it look 2D from a certain position?
Ive thought about projecting the image onto the 3D surfaces, but im thinking there must be a better way of doing it, probably involving some pretty hefty trig equations or something.
Any ideas?

It's impossible. The person who made those used magic.

Edit: The "C" in the last one is perfect. It seriously does look like it's flowing above the surface...

Look at the colors.I think that's the key, lighter color in the places that there is more light and darker in the places that are dark.
Rawr!

maybe project your image onto the surface?

I was thinking along those lines.

It's all in the perspective, so that would make sense.

I've seen picture of those things from all different angles and it's just regular paint. It's like those sidewalk drawings that look like they're popping out.

There's definitely some eigenvalue analysis going on here...


Having just wiki'd that..
seems like your onto something. how would you go about applying that?

Dunno man. Not something I'm terribly familiar with.

Yeah your right, if i hadn't seen it from other angles, I would of said it was photoshopped.

If you projected an image and traced it, you'd need to **** with the image before projecting it to get the perspective right. If you just projected an image, the image would warp to conform to whatever it's being projected on. Try projecting on some uneven surfaces and you'll see what I mean.

it's all perspective dude. I draw. you first have to look at you image as a piece of paper... from there you have to measure out your perspective points... it's really not that complicated but it's very creative.

There might be 2 ways to do this...

One is with all the eigen vectors and what not and mathematically figure it out....Computer engineers maybe?

Or you could go the artistic route, like the street artists do with an artistic eye and proper perspective.

Which is the effect he wants to achieve.

If you see the view from where the projector was, it is undistorted.

Y'know, they're probably all holograms or twisted hi-jinks like that. Magical spells of ancient magical magic, you follow? Yep.

Damn you, R2-D2, I always knew you were behind all this.

No, it's not. If you project an image so that half of it is on a screen that's close to the projector and the other half is on another screen that's farther away, the farther away half is going to appear larger.

Cheers for the ideas!
I've decided to go for just projecting it on the walls and drawing it out, as otherwise I would have to deal with 3 point perspective and it would get enormously complicated!
