Hi I am trying to create a planar tikzfigure, but would like to tilt the plane. Most advice I could find gives a perspective that has the viewpoint in infinite distance.



    \begin{tikzpicture}[scale=1,x={(-0.2cm,-0.4cm)}, y={(1cm,0cm)}, z={(0cm,1cm)}]
        \draw(0,0)[color=magenta] circle (1);
        \draw(-2,-2)[color=blue] circle (0.6);
        \draw(1.5,-1.8)[color=red] circle (0.75);
        \draw(-1.8,2.5)[color=green] circle (0.6);
        \draw(1.5,2)[color=orange] circle (0.75);

How could I make this more "star wars text" like with things closer appearing larger.

  • TikZ handles text differently from graphics. See also tex.stackexchange.com/questions/84621/… – John Kormylo May 30 '16 at 17:06
  • It would be easier to create a rectangular pdf with standalone and run it through a graphics editor. Perspective transformations are pretty standard. – John Kormylo May 31 '16 at 3:15
  • Do you know free software that can do such a perspective transformation on a pdf? – Sandermatt May 31 '16 at 6:42
  • GIMP is the one I use. – John Kormylo May 31 '16 at 14:52

Here is GIMP's perspective transformation of a page (see Size and position of boxes in title page)
