  • Optical Illusions That Move - How to do it *VERTIGO WARNING*

    Can anyone please tell me where I can learn to make images that move (not GIF images)...Optical Illusions. Images that trick the eye that it is actually moving.

    I have a picture similar to what I would like to achieve.

    The effect is caused by the difference between the light and dark sides of the objects, which are laid out in a consistent pattern. In your example, the darker gradient side is shifted 45 degrees for each ball around the circle. Start the next grouping from a different spot on the axis and you get your motion effect.

    A quick google search came up with this tutorial.

    Same idea. This guy just made elipses with a white side and a black side, rather than the gradients in your example, and laid them out in a consistent grid pattern instead of groups of circles.

      This is your brain dealing with the optical illusion. They taught us that in school, during color theory. It's called color vibration. You can learn to control that vibration.

          Thank you so much! And you were right, I actually didn't understand the question properly.

          Most places would want you to have the bleed not on the artboard so when the ad is placed, only the ad shows, not all the bleed. If you have the bleed on the artboard, you risk having your art offset...
