Description

PROPORTION, PERSPECTIVE AND SKETCHING helps students learn how to draw quickly and believably by mastering practical techniques for perspective drawing and estimating scale and proportion. Drawing on extensive experience teaching beginners, the authors overcome many limitations of previous books. Rather than featuring professional work that beginners can’t possibly duplicate, they show examples of student drawings, helping students gain confidence and gauge their progress. Avoiding unnecessary theory, math, and jargon, they help students develop an intuitive sense of scale and proportion for creating believable perspectives, and offer valuable tricks and shortcuts throughout. In place of lengthy narratives, they support each lesson with supporting video walking through key techniques. The authors also devote lessons to SketchUp (for blocking out perspectives) and Photoshop (for enhancing sketches).
