Can you find Vincent Price in this pile of leaves?(Click to enlarge.)
I was inspired by my post Where’s the face in the coffee beans? about the optical illusion called "Sweet Caffeine" by the artist furitsu. How hard is it to make this kind of illusion? (Turns out, not too hard.) And once you see the face, does it disappear again or is it always immediately visible?
Once I finished, I tried inverting the colors to see if that makes it any easier to spot Vincent. For me, it makes him even harder to see.
Then I tried desaturating the image and reducing it to black and white. I think this makes it easier. Any thoughts?
(The image was created by snagging images of a pile of leaves and Vincent Price from the web and using the free graphics program Gimp to color Vincent’s face, cut out his head and various leaves and place them in the image.)
