M.C. Escher drew some mind blowing art but now with Droste effect plug-ins or old fashioned Photoshop skills, you can make your own photos into hypnotizing pieces. IvanStroganov created this photo using their sister as a model and some expert Photoshop skills:
Here’s how the photographer/artist explains the Photoshop process to create the effect:
- After duplicating the image and scaling it down to half the size, you place it inside the borders of the frame.
- Then do some masking to blend the different layers together so it looks more natural.
- Lastly, use the liquify tool to connect the hand in front with the arm in the second layer and blend them together.
For an easier way around this you can use filters and plug-ins like Escher’s Droste Effect that work in Photoshop.
