Useful notes for some of my answers:

CTAN lion drawing by Duane Bibby.

minimal working example](http://www.minimalbeispiel.de/mini-en.html)

The demo option for graphicx simply replaces actual figures with black rectangles; do not use that option in your actual document.

@user33612 the description of everything I used here can be found in the LaTeX Companion and in the manual for memoir (or in the file memoir.cls). By the way, don't forget that (after a sensible wait for other possible answers) you can accept the answer that you consider best solved your problem by clicking on the checkmark to its left. In case of doubt, please see How do you accept an answer?.

comment Positioning TikZ pictures
Your code produces an error since you use \caption outside a floating environment. Please fix it. Where exactly do you want the object to appear? In any case, you can use the remember picture,overlay options and the current page node.

@dustin I've corrected the description of xslant and yslant. Have you tried using small values for the slants in your code?

@dustin I think I messed up the entries in the matrix multiplicatio. I'll review it in the morning; now it's bed time for me.

@dustin please see my updated answer. If you compile the last code, you'll get the description for xslant (corresponding to the last attached image). For yslant one has a similar definition (that can be easily deduced from my answer).
