Which of the following would be a use of scale
A) creating lines that draw the eye back****
B) placing two objects of similar color together
C) putting a small object next to a even smaller object
D) Making one side of object brighter than the other side
Wouldn't using scale be A, right
Oh, I see, so then it would be c, correct?? :)
Yes, you are correct. Using scale would be option A, which is creating lines that draw the eye back. To understand why, let's analyze the other options and see why they do not necessarily involve the concept of scale.
Option B, placing two objects of similar color together, does not directly involve scale. This choice highlights the concept of color, but not necessarily the size or proportions of the objects.
Option C, putting a small object next to an even smaller object, does involve size and proportions, but it does not mention the concept of scale. Scale refers to the relationship between different objects or elements within a composition, whereas this option only discusses the size relationship between two specific objects.
Option D, making one side of the object brighter than the other side, focuses on lighting and contrast, which is not related specifically to scale.
In visual design, scale is used to create a sense of depth and perspective by altering the size of elements in relation to each other. By using scale, you can guide the viewer's eye towards a specific point or create a sense of distance. In the case of option A, creating lines that draw the eye back, it suggests the use of diminishing scale, where objects further away appear smaller in size, creating the illusion of depth.
