@brunopostle do you know where I can read more about this? I really like Piranesi's work, but have never read about the process of making it.
@federicomena I don't know anywhere simply describing this aspect of his technique. We were trying to reproduce it for Hugin when I discovered the 'Panini' projection, but we did lots of measurements and concluded none of these artists actually used our 'Panini' projection.
@federicomena I eventually had a chance to try this in g'mic. The first image is a true perspective done in GIMP, the second is the same view using Piranesi's perspective trick - the Piranesi version is much more legible
@brunopostle 😮 wow, this is pretty amazing. I'm beginning to understand why when I draw something from memory, the perspective seems weird (conversely, when I draw perspective lines and everything, it looks like everything is scrunched in the background).
@federicomena yes 'true' photographic perspective is a bit weird, artists tend to avoid or try to fix these distortions
