How to make quick sketches
on April 11, 2014
Once you get the hang of blocking in vanishing points to get realistic sizes, then you are on your way to being your own creative artist. Many people have artistic talent but just can't get it to look right (3D effect). This book is an excellent tutorial.
I have a background in architecture. We used a different method to draw precision 3D looking houses and buildings. But the concepts are the same. This is a much faster approach since you are drawing freehand as opposed to our "technically accurate" renderings.
The book begins with one point perspective which is usually for objects close to you, such as in a room. Two point perspective is outdoors. Three point perspective is looking a skyscrapers in a big city. You get the idea. The book provides examples and explanations of these and more. Since this book is themed to the comics, you don't have to be perfect and that's part of the appeal.
