Only now, after years of practise, am I beginning to develop a hint of understanding of depth and perspective in art. This image is silly, but it serves as an important learning tool in my quest to come to grips with perspective. As you can see, I've attempted to semi-realistically place myself in the middle of a rain of light, with some of the rain in the background and other falling droplets in the foreground, as if they're in front of me, or closer to the reader. To accomplish this, I selected several of the bars of light and then transformed them into a separate layer, which I copied a couple of times. Then I pasted my Earl cutout into the image, placing that element between the background layer and the raindrop layers. Using blending options, I added drop shadows to the raindrops. The tricky part was trying to determine the distance between my body and the drops; that would determine where the shadows should fall. I used the same trick with the "Mystery in Space" logo. While the effect isn't polished, I think it's a stumbling, shambling step forward.
