Drawing Class Lesson 6; Perspective

Perspective is an illusion which makes a 2 dimensional surface (ie. a piece of paper, or a screen) look as if it is 3 dimensional. This can be achieved in a variety of ways.

Including 1 point perspective. Which you can watch a video tutorial here about.

2 point perspective

and 3 point perspective

Another type of perspective which can be used in shallow spaces is isometric perspective. Where you simply draw all the lines which are receding into the distance in parallel.

First we will attempt to make 4 different drawings utilizing all 4 of these types of perspective. After we are finished with that we will start on created a background for your “Character in an environment” assignment. For this assignment you will be creating a character, and a background, separately. As with all of my assignments you can use almost any media you wish, both digital and traditional.
