What's difficult about perspective for you?
Hello there fellow deviants,
Perspective is probably one of the most difficult concepts in art to grasp. I suppose pretty much everyone has or has had problems with it, even some more experienced artist. I can tell you I'm not exception to that. Even thought I wasn't extremely bad at drawing, it still took me 6 years to even figure out where I needed to work on before I could address the deeply rooted issues I had.
I have basically based all of my artistic understanding on perspective and 3D. Although I can't say I'm perfect in my execution, by looking my gallery you can see that pretty much all of my drawings tries to convey the feel of depth and 3D. I think that's one of the factors that make my drawings stand out and maybe you also feel that way. Drawing depth has become a second nature for me.
You may also have noticed that I have about four tutorials (depending on how we define perspective) that tries to explain a thing or two about perspective. I have also few practices/demo

Silifrey New Version
My friend's Barbarian character for the D&D campaign we're playing together. My art, done in Procreate on the iPad. Took just under 6 hours from sketch to final illo.
Wessley Anne Kinder 02
This piece took me about six hours, including sketching and re-drawing once I finalized my concepts. I'm really proud of how it came together, and I'm thinking I'm just about ready to start taking commissions again. Wessley Anne Kinder is a level 2 sorcerer, who was named after the Westerly wind that drove the storm she was born during. She has ambitions to captain her own ship, someday, and is adventuring to try and find her fortune and possibly a crew!

If people want me to sell prints, I can tweak the background on this one and re-upload it with a more print-friendly layout.

This weekend is Anime Weekend Atlanta!

My friend Dan Houser and I will be doing arts for people. It will be fun!

I hope to see you there.

I have lots of awesome stuff just coming up around the corner with Vigilance Press, but I've been too busy to update here as often as I should... sorry.

I should probably post during the day, when I can think of clever things to say... nitenite, folks!


PS- Stop by at AWA and say hello!

Hey man, I'm wondering. Would you mind if I used Viridian's costume design for something? Like a fanfiction visualization?
jamesdawsey Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
I'd really prefer you didn't. Viridian is going to be a featured character in our products, and her image is a trademark. :)
