Perspective + Composition Pt.2 by fox-orian Perspective + Composition Pt.2 by fox-orian
EDIT 12.2013: I am now teaching a SkillShare class all about the subject of perspective and giving your illustrations dimension!




Edit 01.2013:
 - This tutorial is a bit old by now and my understanding of perspective has developed quite a bit over the years. After giving this a re-read, most of information here is still sound and makes sense. However, I'd like to point out in particular that the section labelled as "Objects with Unique Vanishing Points" is a bit off. I don't think the concept is wrong, but I do think it's both written and presented wrong. Still, what's talked about in this section is something I never do in my own work, because once you've mastered 1, 2, and 3 point perspective, you should be able to draw objects that conform to different vanishing points completely on intuition alone.


________________________________________________

New to this tutorial? Check out part 1!

- Perspective & Composition Part 1 -

Value is important to an image! Check out some of my work in grayscale to see examples of value studies: fox-orian.deviantart.com/art/F…
________________________________________________

Part 2 of Perspective & Composition. Part 2 is PURELY about the aspects and theories of composition in art and how YOU can make better work with them. Due to this fact, this tutorial has a LOT of writing in it, and a lot of reading, and less "step-by-step" technical examples. You can think of this as more of a free lecture on the subject.

While the subject covered in this tutorial may not be as interesting as Part 1 where you learned the technical aspects of drawing perspective, REMEMBER THAT COMPOSITION AND CRITICAL THINKING ARE IMPORTANT SKILLS THAT ALL ARTISTS MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH.

I will repeat that.

COMPOSITION AND CRITICAL THINKING ARE IMPORTANT SKILLS THAT ALL ARTISTS MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH.

Give it a read, you could end up thinking about how you approach your next work a little differently.

Special thanks to !windlab for giving me a complete proof-read on the tutorial.

It's in my gallery. But it was never fully finished because it's too complex to explain in one of these tutorials. Also it was waaay to time consuming to talk about at the time I was making it.
