Official Forced Perspective

If you've read my blog, you know that, until such time as I can have a giantess avatar, I have a thing for taking forced perspective pictures to have at least a little bit of the experience.

Imagine my surprise when I happened to head for the Second Life web site and found this:


Very nice work, and I feel kind of justified in a strange way. I should go take some more forced perspective pictures, though I don't know whether I'll ever do one better than this one:


P.S. Shadows make forced perspective photos a lot harder; not having a shadow while everything else does wrecks verisimilitude.

Awesome to see LL supporting the forced perspective art style; I always think it's cool. And your pic in that style is pretty awesome too! Keep up the great work, and see you in world soon! --Walden

Thanks. I just wish I'd thought to ask some people to stand around, looking at where I appear to be lying--a look and point gesture would be great, and maybe someone standing at the end of the roof, too.
