The Perspective Tutorial by sashas The Perspective Tutorial by sashas
This tutorial is new. It includes additional notes and will replace the preview version, as it includes one through three point perspective and other things....

Murr... I haven't signed on in months, but I thought I might upload a little somethin' somethin' for you before I lose my internet. So yeah, I won't be replying to notes, comments et cetera, but I hope you will enjoy this tutorial.

Heh, lots of typos I'm sure. u__u Careful before you download; the image is around 15 thousand pixels high.

UPDATE: Thanks very much for support via faves and comments. I'm also really happy to get a DD for a tutorial (my favorite devs.)

For those of you using this for classes or as a teaching aid: I'm happy you find this so useful. I don't mind if you use this as an outline for your work. But if you could credit me with the text, point your students to my website or DA page that'd be awetastic. Also, if you could provide me some info where you are teaching it (name of school, location, etc.) or pictures of your students using my text that be great : ) I'd like to combine these and other tutorials into a mega thick book, and I think it would helpful when I create a book proposal.

Thanks very much,
Sasha Lynn Stowers

I make my tutorials for free, but if you enjoy my tutorials and want to donate some funds for gas, art books, and such, I would appreciate it. [link]

The Perspective Tutorial by =sashas is an extremely thorough and detailed tutorial that will guide you through the many areas of creating a dimensional perspective to your drawings while at the same time give you a greater understanding of depth and space as normally perceived by the eye.A must read for those who find hard to obtain a three-dimensional result while working on a flat surface.

This tut was very well explained, and the style used to write it gave friendly vibes...but my head still hurts after reading all of one point perspective. I want to cry, but your example of saying "all fits in a box" was very helpful. Ah, tomorrow I'll read the rest of it, for the time being I was to see if I managed to get a gist of I did read today.
