Description

By utilizing the perspective techniques covered in this training you will be able to strengthen the perspective in your own compositions, whether you're drawing, painting, or working in 3D. We'll begin this process with a review of basic perspective and how it can allow us to create forms accurately in space. From there we'll focus on how to draw a pyramid, an ellipse, and how to proportionately and successively place objects in space using one-point perspective. Following this, we'll explore some intermediate lessons on two-point perspective where we'll learn how to create a cylinder, draw a house, and a visualization exercise on how we can add three dimensional forms into a photo. Finally we'll learn how to draw from a bird's eye point of view using three-point perspective and end with another visualization exercise where we'll learn how to place a three dimensional form accurately into a photo. Software required: Photoshop CS6.
