I’m studying perspective and I’ve some questions regarding it. I hope that this would be a good place to ask them.
What I’m trying to learn is to to make the viewer look overwhelmed by the scale of the elements in the image. Yeah, this sounds like a common motif in images but when I’m actually trying to work it out with what I’m learning, it gets very challenging.
I feel that in the end it’s about the details: The same room I’m standing in could be made to seem gigantic if all the walls are made of tiny, tiny bricks and perhaps have clouds form half way up the walls with a flock of tiny birds somewhere up there.
I know that there could possibily be infinite ways to depict such large scales but these are what that I could think of.
I’m attaching below some of my experiments on this:
I’ve found by test D that if I use a vanishing point for the vertical lines as well, I can get a feeling of being dwarfed.
I’m now thinking of drawing something with D and it having tiny details. Am I on the right track? Are there other clever ways to show this? Could you perhaps point me to some good artworks that use them?
