The way you did this is just awesome. Again, I reeeeally like how you somehow got it to appear bowl shaped, and it's just amazing. It's kind of soothing, actually, because it's twirled too. I feel like my mind is trying to figure out how this works without me even knowing it, just subconsciously. I know I commented already, but you really deserve getting critiques on this, too. I gave you 5 stars for vision, because I don't think anyone would have thought to do this. 4 on originality, though, because the black and white vortex thing is kind of super common. 5 for technique, because again, it looks amazing. I can't even begin to imagine how much time and effort you put into this, which is also why you get a 5 for impact because of the whole trying to figure out how it works thing. Great piece of work! Keep it up!!
Its like an optical illusion, when you have the colored swirled like this, it seems to move. It's all just a though of mind, you dont really concentrate on it moving, just stare at it relaxed!~ It seems to be moving as an illusion!
Well yes, I assumed that's what people were talking about when they said it moved. I am perfectly aware of how optical illusions work but I simply just don't see it. The pattern was more to resemble of marble floor. I've only made 1 picture that was an optical illusion and I can see moving and that one i made in 5 minutes and never really cared much for it.
Maybe because of the type of optical illusion it is and the fact that I made it, makes it so I am unable to see the movement. After all, an optical illusion is the brain filling in what we are seeing from past experiences.
