Description

In this series of lessons we'll be focusing on Understanding Perspective Drawing in Illustrator. We'll begin this process by taking some time to learn how to enable and configure our perspective grid. Next we'll learn some basic workflows for creating artwork with perspective and transforming objects in perspective. Once we are familiar with this process, we'll dive in and begin drawing our skyscraper concept based on a simple orthographic drawing. Throughout this process we'll learn how to precisely control the placement of perspective objects. We'll learn how to apply perspective to objects that don't fit on a perspective plane and we'll learn how to use several time saving features such as automatic plane positioning. After working through this series of lesson, you will have a good understanding of how perspective drawing in Illustrator works. Software required: Illustrator CS5.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, and welcome to this series of lessons focusing on Understanding Perspective Drawing in Illustrator, presented by Digital Tutors an Adobe-authorized training partner. My name is Eddie and I'll be walking you through the process of using perspective drawing to create a piece of concept architecture. We'll begin this process by taking some time to learn how to enable and configure our perspective grid. Next we'll learn some basic workflows for creating artwork with perspective and transforming objects in perspective. Once we're familiar with this process, we'll dive in and begin drawing our skyscraper concept based on a simple orthographic drawing. Throughout this process we'll learn how to precisely control the placement of perspective objects. We'll learn how to apply perspective to objects that don't fit on a perspective plane, and we'll learn how to use several time-saving features such as automatic plane positioning. After working through this series of lessons you'll have a good understanding of how perspective drawing in Illustrator works, so let's get started with our next lesson.
