It explains all the foundational perspective rules (those point perspectives, drawing eclipses etc.), as well as tips on drawing characters in perspective. The explanations are simple and illustrated examples clear.
This book even teaches curvilinear perspective, where "straight" lines are drawn as curves, such as the cover illustration. This is more commonly used in comic books and are not taught in other basic perspective books. In photographic terms, this is the fish-eye effect.
Right at the end are pages of tricks and techniques aimed at solving perspective problems, such as fixing distortions, good places to place vanishing points etc.
This is a recommended book for artists at all skill levels.
There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.
I am both a traditional and digital artist and, like most artists, I struggle with perspective. For years I have been searching for the perfect perspective book, and now I have found it.
This book is not just for comic artists: it gives good information that can be applied to any piece of artwork. Cheeseman-Meyers covers many different types of perspectives (one-point, two-point, three-point, curvilinear four-point, curvilinear five-point). He describes how perspective is created while showing many easy-to-understand diagrams. Cheeseman-Meyers gives you tutorials, examples, and in-depth explanations behind the difficult subject of perspective-drawing. He tells you when it is best to use certain types of perspective and the effects they add to the setting. He also explains the tools needed for perspective-work.
I am constantly referencing this book while working on art and I have already recommended it to many of my artist friends. It is, though, slightly complicated for new artists who have never touched perspective before. Also, flipping through the book, it seems intimidating, but once you read it perspective drawing becomes much easier. I love all of diagrams Cheeseman-Meyer provides: every page contain nearly five diagrams and pictures clearly showing and describing perspectives.
"Vanishing Point Perspective For Comics From The Ground Up" is a must-have for any artist!
This is the best book I have ever seen and read and it has improved my art a hundred percent.
So easy to follow and understand, I cannot say enough good things about this book.
I have tried many other books on this subject and was always befuddled.
I am so glad I purchased this.
