If you're a premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the files used in this demonstration through the Exercise Files tab to the right of the Table of Contents tab on the lynda.com website. Each section has it's own folder, but I would recommend downloading all of the exercise files to your desktop before you start, since some chapters will refer to resources first used in another section. The files for this section are inside the 2_Perspective folder and include my work file, two demonstration files and the final layered perspective drawing.
If you're a monthly or annual member of lynda.com, you'll still have access to the file PerspectiveStart.psd in the free files provided with this course. I will be using that file for the demonstration. So if you have not created your own castle concept in the previous section, you can work over my concept as you watch the tutorial.
Note: This installment of Digital Matte Painting Essentials builds on the concept sketch from the first course, but it's not necessary to have those files to proceed.
