Shiny Legs Optical Illusion

Take a good look at the the legs in this photograph. Do they appear to be shiny to you, as if they are wet or have oil rubbed on them?  Would you believe that they are not oily at all?  Instead, they are just a normal pair of dry legs with streaks and spots of […]

Disturbing Eye Painting

In honor of Halloween, I thought I would post up something that I find to be a little bit on the creepy side.  Some artist (if you know who did this, please let me know and I can add a credit at the bottom of the post) decided to paint a full eye on the […]

Lifelike Portrait from Photograph

I am always amazed when a talented artist can create a portrait that looks absolutely lifelike.  This hyper-realistic portrait of a vibrant, young girl was created by an artist using a real photograph.  You would think that with a lot of practice, anyone could create paintings such as this one.  But, as we all know, […]

Edit:  After posting this, I noticed something really […]

Over the Moon by Rob Gonsalves

In this ambiguous painting by Rob Gonsalves, a young girl is having fun on a tree swing.  As she gets higher and higher, it seems that her feet might touch the moon.  Moving from left to right, can you see where the painting transitions from the girl swinging from a tree under the moonlight to […]

Family of Birds by Octavio Ocampo

This painting from Mexican artist Octavio Ocampo effectively uses negative space to create two distinct images that occupy the same space.  Do you see a tree and several birds or do you see the face of a woman?  You cannot view them both at the same time, but you can very easily flip-flop between the […]
