Great, thanks for that, Trotter. But can that really be Simon? He looks just as tall as his grandfather.


I'm going to have to point you towards a Wikipedia article on "Perspective", take note of the first point below

Simon is a distance in front of his Grandfather.

The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:

* Smaller as their distance from the observer increases
* Foreshortened: the size of an object's dimensions along the line of sight are relatively shorter than dimensions across the line of sight
