Frank and Ernest Explain Cartoon Magic! This week: The Illusion of Perspective! "Hello! Welcome to 'Cartoon Magic'! You'll notice that Ernie appears to be some distance behind me!" "Hello, up there!" "And if you turn things around, I appear closer than Frank back there!" "That's right!" "We are using the illusion of perspective. By drawing Ernie much smaller than I am, he just looks like he's farther away." "And by drawing me much larger than Frank, I now appear to be closer." "When you draw us normal size, we appear to be on the same plane. We hope you have enjoyed our explanation of perspective." The End "Well, I think we pulled it off, guys. Thanks for your help!" "Any time at all!"
