Placement is a very simple yet powerful concept in 3D art. It’s so simple that you probably already know about it and see it in everyday life. When you walk along a narrow trail, notice how things in the distance seem small. Guess what, the same thing happens in 3D art.
Objects that are close-up appear larger and objects further away appear smaller. So if want to draw something that is far away just place it up higher and draw it smaller in the drawing.
Just by making this simple little move, I am able to create a sense of depth in the background. Try it yourself. Draw some big shapes, circles, squares, or triangles and place them further up in your drawing. Move them forward and draw them bigger and see what happens!
