DEFINITION

When one thing lies over, partly covering something else. Depicting this is one of the most important means of conveying an illusion of depth. (Other means include varying sizes and placement on a receding plane, along with linear and aerial perspective.) [Is the opposite of overlap underlap?]Quote: "When you draw an object in front of another object, it will look closer to your eye. If you want to make an object look really far away from your eye, tuck it behind another object in your drawing. This is called overlapping." Mark Kistler, American TV artist / instructor. "The Twelve Renaissance Words of Drawing in 3-D," 1997. Also see aerial perspective, align, butt, feather, fold, imbrication, kern and kerning, linear perspective, moir?, tile, and tiling.<br><br>When one thing lies over, partly covering something else.
