Find The King!


Here’s another great optical illusion puzzle by Donald Rust: Can you find the King in this painting below? When you’re done, just please don’t tell! Instead, comment you found him and share this post further. Let’s see how long does it take before you see him! BTW: don’t forget to check other illusions by Rusty (just in case you missed any). I assure you – it’s well worth your time. Enjoy!

  • Suzanne

    This is one of the most clever illusions I’ve seen in a while. Difficult to see the closer you get, but can be seen immediately in the widget.
    Love it. :)

  • AmetuerAspirant

    now THIS is amazing, props to the artist!
    you were right, i feel better finding it on my own than looking in the comments for help, though i did have to take a step back and reevaluate for a second, my eyes started to get stuck squinting.

  • Izhar

    Yes! King is nothing without all these…infact they make kings…

  • bob

    I first noticed how the scenery of the giraffe photo and the fisherman photo seemed to fit together to form a continuous line.

    I then noticed the eyes and nose of the king.

  • NeeL

    Nice one! I saw it on Facebook, but I couldn’t find it. Of course with the animal theme I had a good idea what to look for, but I couldn’t see it.

    Then I open my iGoogle, see the picture in the small widget and poof! There he was, laying like a boss. I mean king.

  • Glenn

    I helps if the picture is small. Spotted it right away (as with Hadsil) but lost it when I enlarge the picture.

  • Diane

  • Dave Swan

    Helps if you move back or squint a bit.

  • Psyduck

  • Orack Bobama

    Found him before Brandon did.

    this is pretty cool. I hope i don;t give anything away, but I noticed the head first, and a few seconds later I saw that there was actually a lot more than just the head.

  • Sharon

    I found him fairly quickly also. I love these illusions!

  • Katie

    Saw it the second I looked. :P

  • katie

    I can’t quite piece this one together…
    Maybye I am trying to hard.
    I think the flamingos might be an eye.
    I also realised something odd,
    the stream in the giraffe photo continues as mud and turns into a stream in the photo next to it.


  • Pato

  • Jessica Striker

    Yes I found the King. Kind of hard to miss him, it was the first thing I noticed. It was only on closer examination did I realize what I was seeing was an optical illusion.

  • blob

    WHERE IS IT? Cannot find it at all? any sort of clue at all..?

    • jackywacky

      umm kinda give it away but near top right side

  • Confuzzle

  • Chris

    this one took me a while! But to be fair, I was looking for Elvis!

  • Denise

    Saw it immediately.

  • Renee

    found it right away!

  • Anonymous

    I don’t really get it… but I think I see some sort of a shape?

  • Mary

    Saw it straight away but didn’t realise it as I was looking for a different King, At least – I assume I am seeing the right one.

  • lena

    lovely lion

  • Robauz

    quite nice esp how it involves all the individual pictures

  • Herman

    in the small window of the gadget you see in immedialtely.

  • buffy

    easy to see if you don’t enlarge the picture

  • rabbit

    can’t work it out!

  • Ken

    4.5 seconds…haha

  • Holly

    Cant see him! some1 tell me where he is!!

  • This picture is so small in the app…
    I still found him in about 2 seconds.

  • erin8ball

    That was easy.

  • edy

    Saw it pretty quick. Love optical illusions

  • ebbhyen

    I’m sorry. I really wish it had taken longer, but like hadsil, I saw it instantly. I think it was the flamingos. Color wise, they seem a little out of place and once your eye focus is on them, well. . . it just kinda happens.

  • cj

    cant find help me please

  • Annie

    Who changed my reply? I didn’t say that I couldn’t see it. How annoying. There was nothing objectionable in what I said.

    I saw it at once, which was gratifying; it is an easy one to see but it’s a very clever painting.

  • jr

    Saw it before I knew I had to search for it.

  • Good, clever fun!

  • minecaricature

    I did see it fairly quickly, but I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t been prompted!

  • Nicole

    Wow, that is cool. I had an idea but could not see it at first. When I squinted suddenly there he was.

    Wonderful illusion 5 stars!

  • chloe

    i found it yay!!!!!!

  • hockeyplayah

    It took me forever but i finally found it. HINT: LOOK AT THE BOTTOM LEFT PHOTO AND WORK YOUR WAY UP!

  • Owen

    For those who can’t find it, click the picture and look at the small pic under it n the gallery. ( btw, it’s a @!?$ ) sorry. i am not allowed to tell. But, a small pic is better. try standing way back or using my previous trick

  • The monkey held him at the top of the mountain infront of every anime

  • The monkey help him up infront of everyone

  • spilltojill

    omg – so hard for me. i found it in the tiny thumbnail on the link page (click the pic) but hard to find the lion in the big pic. my eyes hurt.

  • pika


  • Ron

    Nicely done, once you see it you can’t un-see it. I also found it in the thumbnail.

  • MasterSpyro001

  • Harper

    Ok, at first I was looking for a LITERAL king! LMBOO But when I looked down at the dude fishing, I was like OH HECKY NAW!! LOL

  • black

    looks like a lion there… with flamingo as the face… this is a very cool optical illusion…

  • Rolf

    It is easier to see him in the big picture if you try to focus your eyes a little bit behind the picture.

  • bianca

    I made the photo smaller then only i found the King… thanks

  • Neds9kelly

    I can the face AND the back

  • emily

    found it. it was hard to find the head i mean i found it but it was hard to see it as it was supposed to be.

  • Rina

    Look at the lion and flamingos at the top right corner. Took me ten mins to find. Also make the image smaller. That will make you find the king.

  • J

    Found it!:)

  • Zedetta

    i saw it on the preview one :| much easier to see if you step away from the computer/make it smaller.

  • Anonymous Girl
