• The form of a character/object is made unnaturally angular

Angular distortion converts more rounded forms into straighter forms and curving turns into sharp angles. Such a distortion can give a harder, more analytical, machine-like look to an otherwise organic character or object.

Angular distortion might occur due to an artist’s unconscious tendencies, a conscious preference for angular characters/objects, social pressure to depict characters/objects in a more angular fashion, or as a choice to accentuate an already angular character/object.
