I’ve been told on another forums to use perspective in portraits - with the vanishing point, line of sight and help lines. But yesterday an art teacher I know told me that perspective should not be used in portrait - for we see portraits from a distance long enough that perspective does not change eye’s size etc. What do you think of it?
I have no experience, have never took any serious drawing lessons so all I know in this matter I learn from you. In fact I always thought that such use of perspective was exaggeration for no matter how close I am to another person - in a decent distance to have comfortable vision - their face features are not in perspective and we do not look at world with a fish eye lenses. I believe now that it could rather be used on purpose to show a different dimension, world, plan or state of mind, not our real environment. And if there is any difference it should be barely visible.
