In this page, I will put one or more “tiny treasure(s)” on a vector graphics illustration and let you find it (them).
First get the PDF file in question by clicking “Get its PDF” icon as shown below.
Then I recommend saving the file on your local storage of your PC or smart phone if possible for patient treasure hunting.
When you find the area where the treasure may be in, try to zoom in the area with a “zoom tool” such like Marquee zoom to show it. If you are right, you can see the treasure object drawn precisely there.
Thus, as an image created in vector graphics can be scaled to any size without sacrificing its quality, it is possible to put treasure objects at any size on the area of the illustration.
This is a simple exercise so I will show you the answer from the beginning. Needless to say, the treasure on the illustration is a diamond ring the woman put on her finger.
At a glance, you may see the ring was drawn in a negligent way. But if you zoom in the area, you must see a clear diamond ring there.
Q2. On the Mongolian Steppe
In vast Mongolian steppe, a man sees nine women wearing native costume standing far from there. They seem to prepare to take a commemorative picture for a coming festival. As he has good eyes, he recognizes that one of them may be his daughter.
By the way, when the painter of this illustration finished drawing the first woman (i.e. this daughter) carefully, he felt it’s very hard jobs to complete rest of eight women in a same manner. So he decided to cut corner with drawing these eight parsons. He thought he was allowed to draw each of them very simply just like sometimes seen in many landscapes in oil.
However, such a “simplifying” no longer applies to vector graphics. As soon as you get its image PDF file and zoom in the area in question, what he has done is exposed!
“To create a compact image file”, that’s a good excuse for the painter. What do you think about that?
Q3. Kompeitō in the Starry Sky
A boy is dreaming a beautiful dream of starry sky. As he likes sugary sweets, he wish a lot of kompeitō (a Japanese sugar candy) were in the starry sky with stars every time he looks at the night sky. Now his dream has just come true!
By the way, I put twenty kompeitō in the illustration. How many ones can you find? Just download its PDF by clicking below icon and try to find them.
Note: The PDF is rather large in size (1.5 M bytes).
Q4. Matryoshka dolls and a Sparrow
A girl put every doll of her favorite matryoshka dolls set on a table and looked at them happily. Then a sparrow suddenly got into the room through a window and was about to peck at the smallest doll. Probably it was so small that the sparrow thought it was something like a grain to eat. The girl was astonished and wondered if the doll was eaten really.
In fact, some of smaller ones changed their “facial expression” at the moment. Please download the vector graphics PDF file and try to see how they are.
Note: The PDF is rather large in size (1.3M bytes).
Q5. Hepburn and a Fairy
Audrey Hepburn was rather mischievous movie star and she sometimes looked like a fairy. So this time, an “actual” fairy appears close at hand. Please look at the face of the fairy after getting the PDF of this illustration (1.25M bytes). Are the two “women” similar?
Look forward to the next treasure hunting!
