Beezzz

Beezzz

The first time that I saw this picture, I was quite puzzled. Was I seeing a 3D cartoon series about bees?  I love how this 3D optical illusion combines the artists drawing with real objects to create the illusion that the bees are in 3 dimensional space.  Ramon has used a great eye for detail.

Anomalous Motion Illusion with Ovals

Anomalous_motion_illusion1

When I saw the anomalous motion illusion, I felt quite dizzy. The image is static, but it appears that there’s a part of the figure that moves in a direction that is different from the rest. However, I still enjoyed looking at this visual design and it to amuses me every time I look at it. This visual illusion really messed with my eyes, yet it did not gave me a headache.

I was absolutely astounded with this street illusion cover up artwork! It looks great and if I did not have the chance to see how Erik was setting it up, I will definitely find it hard to tell whether it was real or fake.

Hexagon Grid

hexagon-triangle4

I find this impossible figures illusion interesting. When I look at the figures, I try to interpret the picture as three dimensional.  I was surprised to find out that it is two dimensional and is a physically impossible object/grid. Pictures are by their very nature two-dimensional, however they often characterize three-dimensional objects. I am a fan of puzzles and I definitely love mind boggling challenges just like this Hexagon grid of Vlad.

Checkershadow Illusion

Checkershadow Illusion

I find this Checkershadow illusion of Edwards incredible.  Can “A” really be the same shade and color as “B”?  He uses shadows and neighboring colors to deceive the eye in regards to the shade of gray “paint” that belongs to the surface.  Edward did a nice job in creating the visual color illusion in this figure.

About the Checkershadow Illusion

I have learned that the first trick used here is based on local contrast. A check that is lighter than its neighboring checks appears lighter than average and vice versa. The second trick is based on the fact that shadows [Read More...]

 
 
 

After The Storm

After the Storm

I find this painting of Jim Warrens breathtaking. After the Storm is not just an ordinary beautiful picture – you can see that Jim has put an interesting twist to it. I was impressed with his brilliant work. This picture is like having a mystery, a story that is unknown and a secret to unravel. In my own perspective, it appears that the horses have entered into a new dimension and that they have come from a different world. This is just coming from my imagination. After all, a picture paints a thousand words.

I was enthralled to see this optical illusion by Scott Kim. I wish that I had the talent and skills to create my own illusion that is as clever as this. The ambigram looks modern and fascinating.

Rotating Snakes

Of all the optical illusion artwork that I have searched online, the rotating snakes blows me away the most! It is almost magical and I consider it to be one of the most terrific visual illusions I have ever seen. Rotating snakes are circular snakes that appear to rotate spontaneously. I was really amazed with the fantastic illusion design of Akiyoshi Kiatoka. I was amused to see the circular snakes move and I definitely find it spectacular to look at. Akiyoshi really did a great job, and it is not surprising that the Rotating Snakes illusion is popular.

The very first time that I saw this picture of a hand popping out of the sketch book, I was enthralled. I personally believe that it takes great talent in drawing and shading in order to create such a fantastic piece of 3D artwork.

The Pool

Pool

This incredible artwork was David’s first attempt to create a primitive image with non-photographic elements. The illusion of 3D depth in the artwork is fantastic. If you look carefully at the diving board, you will see that it is not physically possible in the real world. You can see that this image was created with a lot of hard work and the design of the pool is amusing to look at. The structure of the pool is unique and interesting to observe and study.

Brightness Illusions

2014-02-25_091725

Look carefully at the two large squares in the middle to the image. At first glance one looks like a light gray and the other one is dark gray.  Look again; both squares are exactly the same color. I tried this a couple of times just to make sure. Each time my brain was fooled. This is one of my favorite illusions.

About the Brightness Illusions

The Brightness Illusions show that the whole concept of an illusion is predicated on a misconception. This will help you realize that whenever you see an illusion, you are entertaining two realities simultaneously.
