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

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!

Thank you for reading and commenting, James! Love your artwork!
jamesdawsey Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012
Thanks, Koobismo! I wish I could put out color work as quickly as you do and at the same quality. If you're interested in doing some commission work, let me know. I'm a role-playing-game publisher, and I've been loving your panel work! Would love to talk to you about possibly hiring you for some stuff.

James "at" :)

I'll be dropping by at AWA this weekend. A question, though: are you familiar with Mass Effect?

It would seem I was already watching you here. Must have come across you at a previous GenCon. Well, either way, greetings once more! :D
