Default Perspective Tutorial

Some people have been asking me for perspective tutorials... Well, this is what I've come up with so far.

I'll outline the basics plus some tricks and tips on Isometric, 1 Point perspective, 2 point, 2 point vertical, 3 point, and MAYBE 4 and 5 point.

Here's the first part of 1 point perspective.






Tell me what you think! Any additions/changes?

The next part of 1 point I'll cover is the building of basic shades, plus adding details, thicknesses and such.

MAYBE if you gyus want more indepth, cast shadows in perspective too.

I would like to see high and low angle perspective, especially on people. Maybe do some 2 point perspective too.

Another thing. Say if you have a long winding highway going down to the horizon, how would you do that? Curved objects in linear perspective, I guess I would label it.

Chop Chop! Get to making me more tuts >:]

Nice!
I'd like a tutorial on drawing figures in dynamic forshortening and stuff...but I don't think that relates to this tutorial.
More like a figure drawing tutorial with forced perspective and forshortening...
I dunno.

I had been thinking about doing one of these for a while, but I was way too busy/lazy.

There are a lot of people who struggle with perspective, and for a long time I have just been telling them to study perspective without actually guiding them anywhere. Now, thanks to you and this fantastic tutorial I can just refer them to this thread.

I think this is one of the better tutorials I've seen on this board, the presentation is really neat. If you cover the 2 and 3 point sections as well as you have with 1 point perspective, then this will be a tutorial worthy of worship.

Awesome tut far... :O
I was thinking of making a perspective tutorial for the longest time, but I think you will do a better job than I will. Now I don't have to worry about it :P
BTW, I bow to your traditional inking skills

This thread really deserves more views - really useful tutorial. It helped me out quite a bit and was easy to read through (plus neatly set out ). Very nice indeed .

Oh yeah, that curved road is easy, but once you throw in hills, it gets a bit harder. Also try explaining the lighting on two point interiors, thats kinda difficult. If you need help with 4, 5 and 6 point I got ya back =]. Awesome explaination btw. Keep going!

PM me your adress and i shall send traditional finnish candy to you when i get around to the post office.

But considering how lazy i have become getting myself to the post office may take a while. As i already have promised to deliver similar payload(candy and self made card) to another member of this board and haven't been able to find appropriate time to get myself to the post office.

About Tutorial: Very clean and informative.

I only knew the basics of perspective! One and two point perspectives are easy, yet 3 and above are a hassle! Now, with perspective tutorial by jigokuen, I have full confidence, my cancer was healed, I'm a millionaire, and all the ladies love me! Thank-you, perspective tutorial!

I'll have to make a note to help Kras out, those candies look...interesting, lol.

"Aquired taste?" I think I can handle that.

Especialy if you look at the fact that one of the main ingridients isn't something you would eat in it's normal form. I'm speaking of Ammonium Chloride.

About the taste of the candy. The closest i can tell about it is that for me it tastes like when dentist has it's metal tools in your mouth, lickerish and cough medicine. All of witch combined in one small package.

http://www.finnishfood.net/store/pro...eviews_id =39 you can buy finnish candy from here.

Also i'm not shure how the postal service works with sending food abroad so if it'll be to much of a hastle i'll just send a card with my apologies. :P

Assuming you're NOT joking, I'm not sure I even want those candies within a 10 foot radius of me...
1) I hate licorice with a PASSION, 2) ammonium chloride, 3) I'm a wuss.

I got two more pages just dealing with people, and extreme foreshortening (faces) and i'm gonna do a third paged of a full process, from thumbnail to finished linework (and maybe into grayscale if I have time...).

I'm pretty shure you would accuire the taste.

Also your not the only one hating licorice around here. I hate that bitter taste with a passion. But add some ammonium chloride and it tastes like heaven. Well actualy it doesn't but it has special weird taste to it(totaly different from licorice). I've eaten enough of those candies to kill a bear. So there's nothing to fear but fear itself.

Also again a great update on tutorial. I was exactly stuck in figuring out how in the hell does one make a perspective drawing right from under the characters.
