Perspective Rendering Tutorial by MikeDoscher Perspective Rendering Tutorial by MikeDoscher
Here's that perspective demo I've been promising for far too long. I feel a little odd presenting such a thing, as there are people who are better at it and have better presented their techniques.

I just want everyone reading this to know that perspective is a craft. It's learned both by the mind and by reflex. It's not magic, you can do this. This only real trick is that if you practice enough that you can eyeball minor stuff and things really speed up. Just keep practicing.

If you can spare $40, buy this DVD it's great: [link]

I drew my first art deco half-track with this tutorial. It looks horrible, but I finished it, which is more than I ever did before...

If you have time, could you have a look at my xwing. [link]

I have been trying to draw one of these for years and this is the first one that looks almost right.

I would love to get a bit of criticism to know where to improve.

thanks

Sure. :) I posted a few suggestions, and I could do a redline on it if you want.

Ah, good. I'm glad it was of some use. :) Usually I don't go for stuff like that, but that one was amazing. Speaking of which, my skills could likely use another viewing. XD

Usually I'll do my guidelines real light so I can just adjust the levels to get rid of them, but one this one I did them darker than usual as used the smudge tool set to 'lighten'.
