Intergalactic Christopher Walken illusion

Intergalactic Christopher Walken illusion

Vurdlak on the Mighty Optical Illusion blog writes – “This ubercool Illusion of Christopher Walken flying through space is our newest submission. Beleive it or not, this magical “animated” illusion is a composition of only four frames. The second two are just color-inverted originals (with small modification in shiftment from the original). It gives you opinnion Chris is drifting through galaxy, while in fact he’s just leaning milimeter back and fourth for our photo-session”Link. Looks pretty easy to make your own, but it’s hard to top an intergalactic Walken.

Note: Vurdlak sent in an updated (and correct description).

    It’s actually four(4) images. The positive gets 2 frames, and the negative gets 2 frames. In each frame, both Walken and the background shift slightly. I think the real illusion is that it seems continuous.

    I’ve seen this on… I hope that’s the original author submitting that or there is going to be some angry peeps knocking on MAKE’s door. :(

    Yeah, it DOES shift.

    Ok, so now the description has been updated without indicating an update, thereby making the commenters look dumb for pointing out the obvious.
