New perspective on perspective by HOON New perspective on perspective by HOON
this i believe, could be a key for many style oriented, talented artists. many young and upcoming artists tend to focus on a few elements in drawings, like cute face with big eyes, or big round boobs. (ohh wait.. thats me!) but there are a few things in drawing, its so technical, at first sight you get lost and just ignore there is such technicality involved and applied to most of your drawings. (if not every single ones.) technicality in PERSPECTIVE drawing, the main subject of this tutorial, is actually quite simple. afew principle and tricks can get put you on a new perspective in drawing without a doubt. my intention here is to cover than principle and tricks.
unlike life-drawings, (human figure study) perspective drawing is as simple as binary, 0 and 1. just gotta find away to depict this two bit structures.
though my english isnt the best, and i didnt even bother to proof read, but this will certainly convey the message, and i do hope you get something out of it.
this tut is made using Photoshop CS, and without any use of references.

if you have questions? best way to get an answer out of me is here: [link]

"sorry for my poor english" -my favorite quotes from my fellow friend artists from korea and china.

this has been brought to you by MESSS.CC! new home of messstudio. [link] :evillaugh:

if u ever get to do an art with the infomation in this totorial as platform, i'd love to be told. it will just make my day. ^^

Strangely enough, I knew most of this already and am confident with perspective, but I can't draw cute eyes or big boobs to save my life. "OTL

Mhina-mbg Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Of course I'll tell to you when I practise this! I knew about the horizon line and one, two and three points perspective, but I always had a problem with 'in wich measure you must make things closer to the things near to them while they are going away in the perspective' (I don't know if you understand me XD! I'm Spanish, so my English is terrible)

Omg. I don't understand myself! XD

Nevertheless... THANKS!!!
