Lightbulb Learn how to Draw In Perspective

Good day everyone,

Drawing in perspective allows an artist to break away from 2 dimensional space (2D) and work correctly in the 3rd dimension (3D). This is done with the help of perspective lines.

DrawInPerspective.com is a FREE resource for anyone interested in learning how to set up, and use, perspective lines when drawing or painting. Maybe you're new to drawing and want to know the basics of perspective? Maybe you're an instructor looking for a resource to help your students? This website quickly explains everything you need to know in order to draw in perspective, complete with tips and examples. From the basic setup of one and two point perspective to more advanced techniques such as three point, atmospheric perspective, and foreshortening, you should be comfortable with everything perspective by the time you're finished going through this site.


When you're ready to start drawing or painting in a digital format, save yourself time by downloading the
Perspective Lines Setup (PLS) Tool for use in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Or, import the tool into Corel Draw and other graphic software. I've done the tedious work for you so you can do what you want to do most, draw!


I'd like to express thanks to Gary Tonge for kindly allowing use of one of his excellent digital paintings. His work can be seen in the CG Talk forums or at his website here.

If you like this website, please share it with others and click on the 'useful' button to the bottom right of this post.

Thanks!

Very technical, a little over my head; but it comes very highly recommended from the friendly folks over at CA.

It's always great to see hard work shared like this.
Perspective was one of the things I had to learn with hard work and dedication. Good thing people have resources like these to help them along the way.

Yes, perspective takes some practice. If I'm not in the right headspace I still get confused at times! I find that using different coloured lines, like I've setup in the PLS tool, helps quite a bit... at least in Photoshop anyway. It's that extra visual element which helps separate things.
