  • using linear perspective and an unusual vantage point
  • blending realistic imagery with fantastic imagery into a narrative
  • modeling forms with light and dark

Assignment: Make a compostion based on an architectural setting which is a combination of realistic and fantastic imagery. Render using linear perspective from an ant's eye or bird's eye view. Create depth with objects and buildings in the foreground, midground, and background. Set up a visible light source. Your setting should include objectds and figures that refer to real ones, but which are different.
