Optical Illusion Ideas

I had a couple of ideas for Sketchup models that I'm pretty sure I don't have time to do, so if you're interested, I'd love to see them done.

1. The image toys that change image when you tilt them. This involves a lot of sectioning of the images in an image editor, then lots of importing the sections.

2. 3d Vase shapes based on real peoples facial profile. We've all seen the optical illusion of the vase which is made up of the profiles of 2 faces. You just need to import an image and trace it, then Follow Me it into a circle.

Please let me know of you try any of these ideas.

UPDATE: j swajime has created a SketchUp model of #1. Check it out! He also has a website.

SwaJime did this with real photos and it worked well. I think because he used only 2 images, where you have tried 3.
