I admit these aren't very good, but it's kinda hard figuring out how to do the effect in the first place. All three are from the top image, with the inside of the mouth starting off as transparent. As this is just my first attempt, I'm gonna try to do something better later on. Let me know your thoughts and if you've done any, let's see them!

Sorry, deleted pictures

I of course cannot take credit for the process as it's far too complicated for me and extremely math-based (fractals and such). I used Josh Sommers' (external link)code to do this. If you're interested in making your own, check out his stuff (he's AMAZING and such an inspiration for anything abstract - he also does fantastic texture wrapping)

Very clever indeed.

But extremely creepy - this reminds me of Escher's drawings, they messed with physics too but weren't so.... worrying...

haha, thanks for the comments guys. I know it's kind of creepy - that seems to be the overwhelming sentiment. Here's another one I did from another picture of my face with less pp to the original image. This one's very rough but people seem to like it better:

Sorry, deleted picture

I might try to use this effect but have the transparent region be on the outside with some pictures and see how that works out. It also looks cool if you use this with flower pictures...but I usually don't shoot any flowers so I don't know. :)

Interesting and creepy have been said in the above posts, so I cant think of another adjective for these LOL How about weird? Not a bad weird, but one of those weirds where you dont want to look at it but find yourself starring at it for long periods of time.
Very neat. I have never seen this done before. I will definitely have to google The Droste Effect. How is this done exactly?


Canon 5D
24-70 mm, 50 mm, 85 mm 1.8, 100mm macro, 200 mm ~580 ex II,

Motorized backdrop system, 20+canvas backdrops, lots of lighting, and too many props :)

Haha, this made me laugh. Thanks.

Like I mentioned in my first post, check out Josh Sommers' stuff: http://www.flickr.com …in/set-72157594405604955/ (external link)
That's his most famous picture, which I tried to emulate. His stuff is simply amazing and he's incredibly creative. He also wrote up a tutorial on how to do this kind of thing, so check that out if you wanna try it. It's a little complicated at first and you have to use GIMP, but it's a fun exercise.

Hardly! This was mostly done in GIMP anyway, as I just mentioned, haha.
