In the previous lesson, we figured out…where all the rectolinear forms are, but the…drawing is hard to read, and we need to do a clean drawing before we proceed.…Turn down the Opacity of the messy drawing to 50%, make a new Layer called…Clean Drawing, and up the Opacity of your Brush to 100%.…Now we're ready to start cleanly defining all of these forms.…You have all of the guides from the messy drawing to help you.…But now you want to really pay attention to the perspective grid.…
On this drawing you want each line to be accurate.…As before, have your hand on the undo button as you work.…On this drawing, you don't want a sketch.…But get a single clean line defining each form.…Sometimes, there are 2 or 3 lines on the messy drawing finding an edge.…But on this one, you have to decide which one is right.…On the messy drawing, you are drawing through forms to find continuous edges.…But on this clean drawing you should use the previous guides as reference.…
And break the line when another form goes in front.…
