Hi, my name is Patricia. I'm an artist and I'm going to some scale drawing object ideas. So basically, you're drawing an object, we have a coin here, you know, we'll put a President. Okay, and then bigger than a coin, you have money and when you're drawing it to scale you really want to show that something is bigger or smaller than something else. So here's our money and then we have a person which is going to be a lot bigger than the money and even here, you know if you were drawing this person, the money would be about this big. So in relation to the person the money is this big, in relation to the bill, the money is about this big. Maybe, this is if it's a quarter, if it's a penny, it's a little bit smaller. Alright, and then see the person here how big they are? Well if I drew a building, a skyscraper, do you think the person will be that big? No, next to a skyscraper the person would be like a little ant walking along. So, it's all about perspective. You have the huge building, the really tiny person but that same person next to a coin. There's your perspective. Enjoy.
