Cowboy Optical Illusion

Ambiguous, Hidden Objects 21 October 2020 2 Comments

Here is a very interesting optical illusion. Look at the abstract black and white image below. Can you figure out what it is supposed to be?

What do you see? When I first looked at this, like many others, I was very confused. It appears to be some sort of insect drawn with a black marker. Some people have described it as looking like a lobster or some other crustacean (a shrimp, perhaps?).

Would you be surprised to see cowboy’s face in this image? Now that you know what to look for, have another look. Can you see it?

    It’s just terribly drawn. The lighting is inconsistent, the eyebrows are missing, the left side would still have brow and cheekbone highlights, the right eye almost looks absurdly centred on the face, the hat is very malproportioned and lacks the proper lighting the scene depicts.

    Far enough into uncanny valley and anything can look like anything.

      I don’t disagree with you. Did you see the cowboy right away or did you initially focus on just the black portion of the image?
