hey there! I've seen your drawings and do you have any tips on perspective? because when I try to draw some perspective the result is horrendous haha... :)
hay cozin! Your question is pretty vague, so I’m gonna assume you’re talking about drawing a figure in perspective.
There are many many excellent tutorials on the internet about the basics of perspective, and it can get very technical very fast. So when it comes to applying those principles to your drawing, keep these things in mind:
1. Decide what sort of “shot” you want for your art piece. There’s only 3 options!
The level shot also doubles as an extreme upshot or downshot. (Looking straight up or straight down at something.)
Make it easy on yourself and keep the vanishing point inside the canvas - it creates a deeper space, and makes it easier to stack multiple objects in frame. (The vanishing point falls slightly above the horizon, because of Earth’s curvature. But for simple figure drawing it doesn’t even matter. You can place it on the horizon line.)
If you need them, you can add additional guides.
So now you have your setup, and with the help of any basic tutorial you can place a cube shape into the scene.
Easy peasy. BUT. For the purposes of drawing a figure, it’s more helpful to use a cylinder - cause most of the human body can be simplified into cylinder shapes. And here is where your best friend comes in:
2. Use wrapping lines to define the volume of a shape:
In a downshot most of the wrapping lines will bow downward, in an upshot they’ll arch upward. In a level shot, they’ll arch up above the horizon line, and down below the horizon line. Totes easy.
And so then you place the figure into your scene, and stack the shapes of the body according to perspective. Use as many wrapping lines (also known as contour lines) as you need to help you really see the form in 3D.
Hope this helps. :)
