Avoid­ing tan­gents

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Hybrid Species -

Tan­gents hap­pen when two edges touch or align with­out ei­ther over­lap­ping or al­low­ing space be­tween. An over­lap tells us which mass is in front, while an open space re­lieves our need to know. Tan­gents can kill depth and cre­ate ten­sion in the viewer’s mind be­cause we nat­u­rally want to per­ceive depth clearly. Re­ar­range el­e­ments, even body parts, to avoid them.
