Inspired by art works that have a 2-dimensional image which appear 3-dimensional. This is my attempt experimenting with my own image.
As one can see from the video below, viewed from the left side of the portrait, my face is wildly contorted. It is fascinating to watch that my eyes still stare at and follow as you move around the portrait.
