    Interesting Illusion

    When you create a shape made up of lines, the eye automatically connects the end points of the lines to give the illusion of a whole shape. Very useful when you utilize this in designing for the web, for the weight of the file can be very small with huge impact. Creative use of white space In this case it is created with the bbcode here in the forum.

    Exactly!
    Its called Gestalt Theory
    Your brain interprets not only whats there but interpolates whats merely implied.
    The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

    This is really handy to know, especially when using the pen tool exclusively to create graphics. Thanks, I'm going to look this up.

    There is a tutorial for one of the Gestalt Principles - "Figure Ground" for Adobe Illustrator. The tut. is simple but it gives you a clear idea how to create gestalt concepts with few mouse clicks. Link - http://vector-art.blogspot.com/2008/...lustrator.html
