Optical Illusion Art Collection #2


Spooky.

Great - you made it to our second collection of optical illusion pictures... How about the definition of an optical illusion:

You are quite a loyal visitor (our favorite kind!!) You've braved many of the optical illusion images in the first collection, but you hunger for even more!

In this section, you'll see many ambiguous optical illusions. The definition of this type of optical illusion is a picture that the exact same picture may appear to trick your eye and be many things. For example, you'll see a painting that looks like a man on a horse that also is a collection of a bunch of faces. You'll see freaky objects that can't appear to be possible, and you'll see some photos that will trick you.

What does the dictionary say that the definition of an optical illusion is?

n. A visually perceived image that is deceptive or misleading. (American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)

noun. visual perception of a real object in such a way as to misinterpret its actual nature (Merriam-Webster Medical Dictionary

noun. an optical phenomenon that results in a false or deceptive visual impression. WordNet - Princeton University.

Best of the Best (our newest original optical illusions)
Diamonds appear to be the same shade. But they're not!

Same Shade Diamonds

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.

Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?

moving red spiral

Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.

It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!

Created these floating wooden blocks and attached them to a globe. Watch the video and see how the blocks follow the camera! Pretty amazing!

You can launch the video on this page, or go to the page that describes it a bit more View the video...

moving backgrounds

Moving Backgrounds

It moves! You must zoom in to get the full illusion. You'll see the rings rotate, even though they are not moving at all.

We've created several sizes so you can use as your desktop background.
