Paper is flatland. Houses are 3D land. To see 3D land on paper, perspective has been invented. Not easy to deal with. Otherwise houses are leaning. And sometimes not even doors fit.

In the doorway on the left even a Lego nan cannot stand. Because the perspective is wrong. On the right we see how it really is.
Figures are from flatland. And they better stay there. They are bigger and smaller, earlier or later, but not in front or in the back.

If figures are in the front and in the back, smaller and bigger cannot be seen. As we see here.
