    Yeah there was a thread before on this, here's the link: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=28630

    In answer to Jester's question: Yes there are a few painters that use illlusion in their works. The most famous ones would be M.C. Escher and Salvador Dali.

    If anyone is interested in more of this the I recommend a book "The Great Book of Optical Illusions" by Al Sekel. It has tons of examples of these kinds of illusions. (ISBN 1-55297-650-5)

    The more you roll your eyes around the faster it moves!


    Its not working for me right now coz I'm about to punch myself out to sleep. My eyes aren't lubricated and articulated enough for this.


    Thanks for the repost....always fun to see these stuff.

    Here's another cool optical illusion I came across today.

    Attachment 161336

    Is she rotating clockwise or counterclockwise? Now watch her shadow for a second and check again.
