You know I see where you are coming from but at the same time, this illusion is like an exact copy:

http://www.instructables.com/image/F1H3JF6FRJGP9ZH/Optical-Illusion-Mysterious-Black-Dots.jpg

Honestly, probably not the best illusion to duplicate. At least some of the others came up with their own original idea and take on the illusion.

avatar hereisanoop

well author you better read this..
What's a reference?
A reference is a photo (no artwork like drawings or paintings) which you use to create an entry. They can either be yours (if so you'll have to post it in the SBS) or a copyright free photo from sites like SXC and FLICKR (if so, you'll have to post a link).

How to use a reference?
A reference may be used to look and study how an object / animal / person and so on is constructed. To study the proportions, the materials (f.i. hair, cloth), to see how materials behave (f.i. how water flows and shines). In short, you may use a reference to look and study.

How not to use a reference?
You may not include a reference in any way in your entry as being a part of that entry (visible or not visble in the final entry). You can not use a reference to set certain features / elements like f.i. eyes, ears, nose and so on in your drawing, neither can you use a reference to trace the whole or a part of the original reference.

What references are allowed?
You are allowed to use non-copyrighted photos. It is not allowed to use copyrighted photos, artwork and so on.

What if you use a reference?
It's not a shame to use a reference, but if you do you, must post this reference, either as a link or, if the photo is yours, you must post this photo uncut in the SBS.

And author, I did not want to insult you... but your entry is an exact copy of that reference image.... and how can we vote for that... I am sorry if it hurts........

EDIT: I just wanted to tell you that you can post a link to the reference from an allowed site.

erikuri says:

Hey, author... he just tried to advice you... you don't need to answer that way! As you said, you can find the same image on different sites. So, you can quote the one you used for reference, that's it...
It's a nice work, with no doubt.

EDIT: The idea is not your own.. you have to mention the reference...
