In this video you will learn the basic principles surrounding perspective, in particular ‘one point’ perspective. What this means is there is a viewpoint which leads to one vanishing point. Crilley describes the understanding behind it in some detail. It would be difficult to draw for a beginner or even as a first attempt but the video is more to do with using the perspective lines and achieving correct proportions. The scene is a post apocalyptic world do could be good fun to draw. Reach for those pencils and have a go yourself.
This excellent tutorial from Mark Crilley accurately demonstrates how to draw a two-point perspective landscape in pencil, based on a sci-fi theme, this tutorial will help all those looking to improve their drawing abilities and to gain a better understanding of perspective rules for futuristic and anime style works. Suitable for beginners and advanced artists alike. Mark covers how to properly set his horizontal line and vanishing points and highlights the problems with having perspective points too close together which is a common problem experienced by beginners. Don’t forget to check out his other works. Very well edited with time-lapse stages to help speed up sections.
