- [Voiceover] I'll be drawing with a stylus on a Waccom tablet in Sketchbook Pro to demonstrate some key ideas. You can follow along using any drawing tools you like. You can use Photoshop, or a drawing app, or better yet paper and pencil. I've provided basic spacial grids you can download from the exercise files to help you draw interior and exterior spaces. You can open these in a digital application or print these images out and draw directly on top of them, or on a layer of tracing paper.
When you start these will be like your training wheels. Over time you'll be able to envision spaces without these grids. For our purposes there'll be a ghost grid beneath many of our demos so you can see how the drawings merge with this system.
Join artist Amy Wynne in this class as she demonstrates the basics of two-point perspective. After a brief demo of asymmetrical vs. symmetrical perspectives with 3D blocks, she takes us through more complex projects: an imagined street scene, complete with windows, doors, trees, and light posts, and an interior room with furniture. In chapter 5, Amy introduces strategies to strengthen your compositions by improving the illusion of depth. Practicing these techniques will breathe new life into your drawing and give you a new "perspective" on drawing.
