In Digital Artist 29, Abigail Daker shares her tips for working with perspective. Here are the basics of composing using its rules.
Before you start to draw anything, it’s a good idea to set up guide lines on the page. Then divide each side of the page into thirds and draw a grid.
By structuring the drawing around this grid, you will ensure that it is balanced and that the viewer can read it easily. Now choose a horizon line.
Set two main vanishing points across the horizon and draw a number of lines from these to indicate where objects should fall.
Before I drew anything, I played around with the perspective lines and drew a rough diagram. This made the initial sketches far easier.
