An elementary sight line drawing puts the things to their places: O is the observing point. The red sight lines 3a and 3b show the ends of edge 3 on the green image plane. The blue sight lines 1a and 1b show the ends of edge 1 on the green image plane. The angle between 1a and 1b is smaller than the angle between 3a and 3b. Thus the apparent length of edge ...

This task is simply done using ImageMagick montage function. Assuming that you have 6 tiles (map_tile01.png, map_tile02.png, ..., map_tile06.png) and an empty image of the same size of the tiles (empty_tile.png): You can use the following command: montage.exe empty_tile.png map_tile01.png empty_tile.png map_tile02.png map_tile03.png map_tile04.png ...

If you have the individual PNGs already created, you could use Inkscape (free, Open Source, works on Linux, Windows and Mac). It has some nice snapping and alignment features which would make placing the PNGs very easy. You could create it using linked images and clones in Inkscape, to make a kind of template. Then all you'd need to do is change the links ...

Find a background image on a stock image website. There many of these online, such as Adobe Stock, Dreamstime, iStock etc. Do a search for "fantasy" illustrations. Alternatively just paint your own fantasy background image. In the example below I just chose a random fantasy type image for the sake of showing an example. As far as blending is concerned, the ...

Unfortunately you cannot get it by misusing Lens Correction. It is too smart, it doesn't generate chromatic aberration if there's none. But you can distort R,G and B channels differently. Let's check the case with an example. It has big BW contrasts to get much color. Duplicate the image layer to have a spare copy. Insert to the duplicate a few percent ...

I can't answer for "most graphic designers", only for myself. Graphic design is a very wide category, and different designers have their preferred workflow, software, and specialisms. I make my own templates when I need one. I've never had to buy a pre-made template. I usually either take a photo of the objects myself, or find a stock image from ...

These are obviously well done simple 3D animations. The "graininess", as you say (see NOTE1), is intentional, it's not caused by missing knowledge. It can be aimed to create a mood or it can be done to save space or computing time. It can be got by reducing model complexity, rendering accuracy or pixel resolution or all of them mixed. If kids made these from ...
