Many of these kinds of techniques can also be employed in SL. But a builder should also be aware that in SL you can't control the user's camera or position.

Its a long staple in games to make a tree by taking an 'X' or '*' and painting trees on the side panels. This is very common in SL too - but in SL we often encounter these trees from above or below, ruining the illusion.
