    Your eye height is extremely low, which gives a lot of distortion. Unless you have a good reason, stick to a more neutral eye height. Or, even better, try a good variety of viewpoints, and check which one works best for you.

    I think the distortion is coming from the not calculated *cone of view* but I'm not sure about it. I do not understand how to apply this factor to a format correct...

    I don't think so, it is not so much distortion as a direct consequence of the viewpoint chosen. If you reconstruct this with friends you will see the same difference in height between models.

    The stage can't be so big as to disappear on the horizon :p

    I think the issue is that the scene's perspective is different than the characters. They both seem to have different focal lengths where the background is wider than the characters which are quite "flatter" in that sense.

    Hope that makes sense! I like to use opitics/camera terms to help understand perspective better- Almost like my painting is actually a photo I'm taking.
