Dragon Age Illusive Poster

Let’s see how long does it take you to notice the illusion in this poster below. It was originally used to promote computer game called Dragon Age II, but I managed to dig up this draft version lacking all the promotional text. The billboard was first spotted by Chris Anderson, who decided to share it with us. He explained how he had seen this poster of a bus shelter couple of times before he finally spotted the negative-space illusion it hides. This is the best clue I can give you, except maybe what you find may represent all of the dragon’s victims ;)

  1. WOW!
    That was nice. Hard to see if you don’t know what to look for though. Also, is it just me or do the tops of the dragon’s wings look like eagle heads?


    1. I saw the “people” straight away, a little bit later i noticed the wings looked a bit like birds, you saw it a lot more specific then me.

  2. yup…realy nice..
    not that hard to see..
    @Me…no you’re not the only one,i saw the eagle heads too…
    i saw them before i saw the illusion :)

  3. I saw the eagle heads,too,and it seems like it’s hard for some people,but not as hard for others,because I saw it immediately,while others saw it slowly… Nice illusion.

  4. the only reason I noticed it was because it was posted as an illusion. I started really looking at it and then saw it. Funny too because I’ve looked at the ads and the game itself quite a bit and never saw it.

  5. the illusion is people in the background and i didn’t realize it till the end. first i saw the eagle heads then i looked closely and saw the people!!! LOL

  6. I saw the people straight away and I was just wondering is that supposed to be the illusion because I thought it was quite easy.

  7. Wow! I’ve seen this image several times, always thinking the wings were a bit off but never saw the people. Now I just can’t NOT see them.

  8. well i see birds heads in the top of wings and then in the negative space below the wings i see people with their heads starting at bottom of wings and standing side by side for whole lenth of both wings

  9. ok that was wierd. I saw the people in the negative space, and I’m their trying to figure out what the illusion is. Then suddenly i realise its a dragon. Like the illusion for me was actually the dragon 0.0

  10. Firstly, I thought that it was an upside-down skull. Then I saw the eagle heads, but nothing else. I read some comments and there it was right in the middle, ridiculously obvious. Great illusion! :-)

  11. I’ve seen this image in posters, T-shirts and some box covers and didn’t realize about this ilusion until this moment XD

  12. If seen the promotions for it before but never saw the illusion of all the people “under” the dragons wings and I’m not sure I would have if it wasn’t posted as an illusion. Very subtle but very nice.

  13. This photo was on Xbox Live. I lookd at it for some secs there. I noticed all the people under the wings. so here it took me 0 secs

  14. Did anyone else notice that the dragons torso and up through the neck is a mirror of the guy standing in front of the dragon?

  15. i thought the eagle head tips was the illusion.. until my mom pointed out there were figures in the dragon’s wing bottoms. im eight ya know! i love optical illusions.

  16. I think the hint was too much of a give-away. As soon as I saw the words “negative space” I was prepared to see something there.
