Vector Style: 3 in 1 Optical Illusion

There was a nice tutorial published on VectorTuts+ yesterday, provided by Iaroslav Lazunov. Iaroslav used 43 visual steps to demonstrate how this vector-styled optical illusion came to existence. Those of you interested in CG and vector graphics can jump to the original tutorial, while rest of us (lazy consumerist bastards) will enjoy and concentrate on the finished product. There are few, well known optical illusions fused into one image. The crooked spiral, impossible columns and cafe wall. Everything you need to know about them illusions was already said, numerous times. However, if you check the seemingly bent floor tiles (reference to Cafe Wall), you’ll be amazed that the lines intersecting the tiles are perfectly straight and parallel. Seeing isn’t always believing…

  1. out of all the optical illusions, I always find myself taking a double take at the crooked spiral before I figure out there isn’t one, the fact that there is no spacing for grout between those tiles, and seeing them as a 3D representation, really lends to that illusion… makes me just want to go ahead and wallpaper an entire house with optical illusions :).

  2. Trifecta. Triple Play. Hat Trick. Whatever you call it, it’s great. I have to go lie down now. My eyeballs are tired.

  3. Amazing and beautiful. My eyes are turning and my brain is spinning.Wish it was in color. (By the way I have been having trouble with a error message from “Firebox”, it interferes with my logging on).

  4. The tiles were straight, the entrance had an extra collumn but I didn’t get the circle. At first I thought all the circles in it were connected….

  5. Even though I’ve seen the ‘cafe wall’ numerous times, it still amazes me.
    Also, haven’t really seen that particular ‘crooked spiral’ before, but something similar. Still cool though.

  6. well replyin to he text above all you have
    to do is go play crazy 8’s and Gold fish card game nad ur problem will be solved

    by the way i love the vector style 3 in 1 optical illusion
