Perspective is the art of giving a flat surface the illusion
of three-dimensional depth. In the art world there are several
ways to create the illusion of depth and dimension on a flat
surface. Accurate line drawings are the most important, but
on the fun side of creating perspective are colors, vibrancy,
value, contrast, lots and lots of colors.
Because we are a very visual group (and don’t like to read!)
This will be a picture book of how to’s, lots of visual aids.
My kind of instructions.
As stated you must first start with an accurate line drawing.
What angle or elevation are you viewing the picture from,
are you above it, below it or on the same level.
Where is the horizon line? This can be anywhere you choose
to place it, as it is your picture, unless of course you
are reproducing an actual picture. Where is the vanishing
point? Again it can be where ever you choose
= vanishing point
