Here are some pictures of the anticanonical surfaces inside some of our Fano 3-folds.  In each case we express the Fano X as a complete intersection in a toric variety Y, choose an affine chart on Y, take the intersection of an anticanonical hypersurface with that affine chart, and then take a generic projection of the resulting surface into affine 3-space.  Thanks to Andrew MacPherson for the images.
