Don't make this common staging mistake.

This will help in #comics, #animation, #kidlitart, and #illustration of all sorts. Image
Is this an acceptable cheat? That's subjective.

I personally think it's okay to cheat when it supports the story.

However, like this example, drawing in perspective is part of the craft of visual storytelling. It's not a facet of the story itself.
This mistake is so common in television animation storyboarding.

I've seen it frequently on every single production I've worked on.

Look, board artists have to work fast, often sloppy. They're not expected to nail everything right.

But I think this one's easy to look out for.
