Further Perspective Studies

July 26, 2020 12:31 BST

The big news this summer, apart from SARS-CoV-2, is that I am starting a degree in Computer Arts and will be moving to Dundee. My studies will be oriented dowards game art and animation, as well as other entertainment, mobile game and web industries.

So in the few remaining months, I’d like to focus on perspective drawing from imagination.

My primary sources are the following books:

* Perspective Made Easy. Ernest Norling. This is a cute little book that teaches all the basics, and it even goes into casting shadows and reflections.

* How to Draw. Scott Robertson. I watched his tutorials on the Gnomon Workshop and they are great. This is a more advanced and technical book and a bit tedious. However it teaches everything one needs to know to be competent in perspective drawing.

* HDM Volume 25: Putting things in perspective. Society of Manga Artists. This is a Manga drawing manual, and is on my personal favourite list, which is not part of the official university reading list.

I will post further perspective studies from imagination here so stay tuned.

Two Perspective Sketches

Perspective study using Copic markers and Sakura fine-liners. I really like this approach to rendering buildings, and you can expect to see more of this style on my sketchbook.

Second one is a quick watercolour urban sketch that I did in Edinburgh. Ravens and seagulls are my favourite bird types, because they are the smartest. Pigeons are funny to draw.
