Representation in a foreshortened mode or way.
the representation of overlapping forms when seen from certain viewpoints. Used to promote depth in a work.
The way in which the part of the form closest to the viewer appears to be larger, while the rest of it appears smaller as it recedes into space. This is primarily the rule of perspective applied to drawing.
A perspective manipulation where the foreground is heightened and the background retreating so the foreground seems to jump out at you.
The technique of representing a three dimensional image in two dimensions using the laws of perspective.
Apparent distortion in size and/or shape of an object when viewed in linear perspective.
The representation of terms on a two-dimensional surface so that the long axis(es) appears to project toward the viewer.
Technique of perspective that entails representing a figure on planes set at an angle to the observer, so that some parts of it look closer and others look further away.
The diminishing of certain dimensions of an object or figure in order to depict it in a correct spatial relationship. In realistic depiction, foreshortening is necessary because although lines and planes that are perpendicular to the observer's line of vision (central visual ray), and the extremities of which are equidistant from the eye, will be seen at their full size, when they are revolved away from the observer they will seem increasingly shorter. Thus for example, a figure's arm outstretched toward the observer must be foreshortened--the dimension of lines, contours and angles adjusted--in order that it not appear hugely out of proportion. The term foreshortening is applied to the depiction of a single object, figure or part of an object or figure, whereas the term perspective refers to the depiction of an entire scene.
A loss of resolution caused by an oblique (shallow) viewing angle that results in a distortion near the edge of the picture on any type of METSAT imagery.
A method of portraying forms on a two-dimensional surface so that they appear to project or recede from the picture plane.
A distortion in radar images, causing the lengths of slopes facing the antenna to appear shorter on the image than on the ground. It is produced when radar wavefronts are steeper than the topographic slope.
The representation of forms on a two-dimensional surface by presenting the length in such a way that the long axis appears to project toward or recede away from the viewer. foreshortening The representation of forms on a two-dimensional surface by presenting the length in such a way that the long axis appears to project toward or recede away from the viewer.
A technique of perspective in which the vanishing lines form a very tight angle to the horizon line.
Alteration of the scale of an image to suggest perspective.
A method of reducing or distorting the parts of a represented object which are not parallel to the picture plane, in order to convey the impression of three dimensions as perceived by the human eye.
In art, creating an illusion of depth by creating near things larger and distant things appear smaller. The artist's ability to create three-dimensional depth on a two-dimensional surface in proper perspective.
Spatial distortion, whereby terrain slopes facing a side-looking radar's illumination are mapped as having compressed range scale relative to its appearance if the same terrain were level. E-F H-I L-N O-P S-T U-Z
The application of perspective to forms in order to create the illusion of three-dimensionality and depth.
Reducing or distorting in order to represent three-dimensional space as perceived by the eye, according to the rules of perspective.
the perspective effect of recession in which there is apparent distortion of the normal proportions of an object: parts closest to the viewer may appear very large and those furthest away relatively much smaller and the distance between them telescoped down by comparison with the actual dimensions. Format: the dimensions and proportions of an illustration, or of the graphic representation in which it appears, a book page or wall chart.
