Illusion Pencils

August 30, 2016

An image that I made with the idea of creating an optical illusion using pencil. It could've be done using 60 pencils (the composition), but the effect would be different because of the lighting, so I photographed just one pencil and composed the final image.

I'd print and hang this, prominently!

You should do it with other colored pencils or have you already?

Thank you William and sorry for the late answer, I don't log in here too often... Good idea, I'll give it a try :-) I've done other images like this one, but using only black pencil too (didn't post here).

Your welcome, the image is absolutely gorgeous and I just looked at it again and the black just dazzles. Was it hard to light?

No, it was kinda simple to lit it actually, since it was just one pencil (I duplicated it a lot, the reason for that is that the light would act different if it was 60 pencils, and the final effect would be different as well, and the result that I had in mind was exactly this one).
