I love cartooning. But I hate the technical side of drawing. A car? Outside of a house? A street lined with buildings? Yuck! But it's a must for good backgrounds even for cartoons. I always tensed up on that stuff and my brain immediately withdrew. Vanishing points and rulers and straight lines? Blah! But once I checked this book out and sat down and eased into it I instantly caught on and it's no big deal. Once you know the rules you just apply them as needed. It's still a little technical but man those backgrounds I'm finally comfortable with really add something and I'm proud of picking up new skills. You have to push yourself and your art. If you only draw what you're good at you won't grow as an artist.

In general a very straight forward book to have in order to learn perspective drawing. It gives step by step on how to execute different types of perspective (one point, two point, so on) as well as goes over on things such as how to create repeating windows in perspective or fences, so on. Not much to say other than it is a useful book for beginners first learning these types of concepts.

One issue I have is to beware of is that this listing unfortunately contains different versions of this book. I had purchased this used and got a much older version than the one showcased. The newer version has been changed and doesn't completely match the older versions (as they omitted, added, moved around certain pages), so beware when you are thinking about buying this.

This book on perspective offers a step by step method to learn about this important aspect of drawing. One if my classically trained instructors uses this book as a reference. She recommended having a copy in my art library. I'm going through the book lesson by lesson. So far so good.

So far so good, I am only a student taking a class, you will have to look for real artistic types to judge the content. But it is written in plain language and useful illustration.

A classic that was recommended by one of my art instructors. Gives all the detail and information needed to master this, but in a very user friendly way. The lessons go from very basic to complex, but the book is not so lengthy as to be overwhelming.
