Optical Illusions

If you would like to try drawing these click on the links below the pictures and view the YouTube tutorials to learn how.


3D hand – I really loved drawing this one – is a lot easier than it looks just need to have some patience and take your time. 3D hand YouTube tutorial



The impossible triangle (actually a lot easier to draw than I first thought).



Complex impossible triangle (the video shows free hand drawing but I used a ruler)



3D hole in paper




Can you believe there are no curved lines in these drawings? I used a ruler to draw both of them – can you work out how to do it?

    Dear Miss Scarrott,
    The drawings of the optical illusion are great the hand looks like it has clay or something underneath the color they all look fantastic.

    Miss Scarrott, I really like the 5th picture on the page because the colours look AWESOME and also because it looks kinda lol a swirly staircase and I love swirly things. My second favourite picture is the green triangle because it reminds me of the Emerald city from the Wizard of Oz. I also really like the impossible triangle because it looks fabulous that out shaded it in each corner. Plus the hand looks super 3D when my friend showed me I was like WOW. the 3D hole in paper looks awesome because it looks like someone can go down there. And last of all the last one reminds me of the movie Robots.

    Dear miss Scarrott,
    These drawings are absolutely amazing! You wouldn’t think that you drew straight lines, but I can see you did. I think also the colours bring it to life as well.
