Instructions and Help about Why Form 843 Overlapping

Last time, we learned how to use color to create the illusion of depth. Now, let's explore some concepts of shape. The most familiar way of indicating depth for most of us is perspective. You have converging lines for shortening of forms, overlapping shapes, and scale. With all of these principles of perspective, we're using shape to create the illusion of depth. Let's start with scale first. The most basic rule of perspective is that as objects get further from the viewer, they will appear smaller. So, to show depth, it's a good idea to have objects of recognizable size in both the foreground and background. We know that these two figures should be roughly the same size, so this smaller one seems further away. Everybody knows that my biceps are enormously large. A smaller bicep in the same scene will appear further back. The objects don't have to be the same, just any object that the viewer recognizes and knows its approximate scale. The house on this hill gives us something to go off of to imagine the size of the hill. When we make the house smaller, now the hill looks like a mountain and much further away. Next is detail. Since distant objects are smaller, there's less space to put detail. So, don't try to cram as much detail as possible just for the sake of having detail. In fact, removing information could be better. Putting more detail in the foreground elements and less detail in the background elements adds to the effect of depth. Consider simplifying distant shapes instead of attempting to include every subtle contour of the object. Focus on the rhythm of the shape and its role in the picture. Now, let's talk about converging lines and vanishing points. Basically, as objects recede into space, they get...
