;__; wth guys stahp faving this I don't even-

OMG HUGE FILEEEEEE //slapped

TvT Uhm so yeah this is really ugly and really sucks but I get a LOT of questions about perspective and how I go about doing it.
;w; The simple answer is: I CHEAT WITH A SYSTEM OF MATHEMATICALLY PERFECT LINES ON AN IMAGINARY GRID.

....xD or something.

;w; Hopefully it makes sense.....
Q 3 Q I uhh, i'm really not the best person to be teaching this because I only recently got an understanding of it myself, but....TvT W-well I want to help others as best I can succeed, so if what little I know can help then I think its worth it~
And again sorry for the ugliness, I just wanted to make something fast to help~

Very interesting and well drawn!
This is goldeeennnn, okay?! so helpful ;n; my art teacher is using this to teach us perspective too so yee ;3
also, i'm a bit confused with the suffuse image you used here, arent all the objects also supposed to match up with the vanishing point, that's what i learned in highschool graphics class
^v^ They do. Its the corners that are supposed to match up. And remember, when you have two vanishing points its the vanishing point opposite the corner that is used. x3 I hope that makes sense...!
i want to know what Shokai said as well
xD Copy pasta: basically, it more of a matter of scale. You have to understand height-size relations between the person and their environment. For example, if you know that your character is 5'5 and that the fridge standing next to them is 69 inches (5'9), then you would draw them four inches shorter than the fridge. You can apply this to whatever the closest object is to your character, then draw in all the perspective closer or farther from them if it becomes a large issue. //end copy pasta

xD
This is what I have trouble with. How do you draw people in a perspective setting such as here? Whenever I attempt to do so, the person or people either end up coming out too small or too large for the scene.
;3; Its kind of hard to explain... but basically, it more of a matter of scale. You have to understand height-size relations between the person and their environment.

Yes, it does, thanks ^_^ I got a few books that cover this topic. I agree it's hard to explain but it isnt really as hard as it seems with some practice here and there.
Wow this is really amazing in regards to the perspective basics!
Thank you for this
It burns( was never good with perspective)... I can't ....brain turning to moosh....
Pretty much my exactly thoughts on perspective for the last few years. xDDD
I'm a complete total beginner when it comes to perspective. This is the first time I've understood what three-point perspective actually means and how it could actually be used.
xD Hahaha lol! Yeah three-point perspective is pretty hard to understand. xD I'm just glad I learned it in the systematic way like this so it makes a tooooooon more sense~
Totally useful! Thanks for the tutorial!
^v^ Glad you think so! You're welcome!~
You are a lifesaver!! *A*

I love you!!
;//u//; Ahh, you're welcome!!!~
