Impossible Figure: 2008-08-06

After researching how to draw cylinders and ellipses in three point perspective I gave up on the idea and decided to go for approximations of the shape instead. It was a bit more work to create this figure than most others, but well worth it I think. I have sketched very many variations of this figure so I had to create it somehow! The relationship between the different elements seem to be deeper when the shapes are more complex, I like that… but it also makes me wonder how I can continue making figures like this.

From the left, the belt connects the wheels towards you, but the axles connects the wheels away from you!
