Response/Reflection to Masters of Illusion

In this video Masters of Illusion all starts with the Renaissance era, which who discovered a new form of style/technique of painting that changed the world forever. Making 2D painting/art into 3D by perspective, which is "A picture drawn in such a way, especially one appearing to enlarge or extend the actual space, or to give the effect of distance." I'm glad that they discovered this because if it wasn't for perspective we wouldn't have photography or any great paintings that were later done with that new tool/technique. There probably wouldn't be 3D movies, even though right now that's being over done. Though, it still changes people way of view things around them. Leonardo Da Vinci is one of my favorite artist from that time. He was focused on light and shade that dealt with perspective to make it look realistic for others to see. Though, there are different ways of using perspective which is can only be seen from an angle. This is a stretched image that has been used in self portraits during that time. This is genuinely fascinating to me because if it wasn't for stretched images, we wouldn't see the chalk art, walk art, etc. and how this Illusion of 3D can be achieved through the stretched image.
