First off lets talk about Vanishing Points. These are spots that you would put onto the horizon line (which we talked about here) that help you ensure things are getting smaller equally.
They can be used for a single road (as above) or to help you with the road, and the fence and the telephone wires.
But my favorite part of perspective is the silliness that results from small things. When I'm teaching children they always want to make birds in the sky. To make a bird we usually do a SMALL "v" shape. Why did I emphsise on the small?? Well the next 2 images can explain....
|Small "v" birds on the left are GOOD... BIG "V" birds on the right are BAD!!|
|Little Birds close up vs GIANT BIRDS!|
Well, hopefully we will get a chance to use our knowledge of perspective to create something magnificent really soon!
