Crazy Optical Illusion Hand Drawing – Nailed it

Inspiration project from

I created a “Our Summer Fun” board on Pinterest with all the amazing fun ideas I am going to do with the kids this year. Instead of browsing Pinterest. Yesterday’s project? This optical illusion hand drawing found at The Forest Room, which is a simple art project with really cool eye-popping results. I should have said “seemingly simple.”

No, it really is simple. But it’s not simple if you’re no good at drawing straight lines!

Also, if you can’t complete a simple drawing where you just have to draw lines… you might want to sit this project out. Or start doodling a pyramid on the side.

Better luck next time.

  1. Use a ruler to keep your lines straight. We didn’t all get it right the first try either.

    also using flat tip marker is probably going to be more fluid and turn out better than a crayon will

    That’s actually pretty awesome. The fingers look MORE realistic to me than the original. I think it’s very good. The lines and everything look fine. I don’t think they need to be straight at all. You did manage to get the illusion through. Maybe the thumb is not very convincing, but other than that, I love it! So much more character to it than the original one!
