So while critiquing some of your AatR entries, I had suddenly had the idea to organize a presentation giving tips on drawing perspective. Possibly the hardest thing to master in a drawing for many people. But not for me, because I am awesome.

You know who else is awesome at it? `fox-orian, who has a perspective tutorial as well, which I will link here: [link]
EDIT: Here's another tutorial on ELLIPSES in perspective...'cause they're fuckin' weird: [link]
--> EDIT2: Here's an interesting technique for foreshortening called "coiling" [link] <--

Song: Harold Faltermeyer - Craze in the District (Kuffs movie soundtrack)

Thank you for the update!

By the way, this might be something nice to add, but in one of my digital painting books that covers perspective adds that while it is important to remember that the decrease in contrast (depth) should also come with a decrease in the visibility of details (as you mentioned), things DO NOT get fuzzier (as some artists might think). If anything, the shape and shading should become simpler,but maintain the same, strong edges you use for everything else. Hope this might help, PhiTuS!

Another perspective trick is to make objects in the foreground more detailed, while objects in the background become more simplified as they recede backwards into space. Also you can create perspective with color, as warm colors like reds come forward in space and cool colors like blues sink into the background.

Knowledge is power!

I love your tutorials as always Phi.
They're simple to understand, entertaining, and effective.

Really? I figured you knew about that one already since when you animate your sketches you tend to make moving parts like arms and legs different colors to make them stand out more.

Huh, nice, really liked this, simple tutes and practices people can build on themselves :) and... of course I'm sure you couldnt resist giving a little encouragement at the end ;p

(also reminds me I was still going to do that tutorial on backgrounds for you to try and compensate for at least SOME of the help you've given me... even if I can only offer a little, and not in such an interactively exciting presentation. But yeah, did start it, just havent had time to continue it with assesments, like everything freakin else...)

Most of the time I just wing it by looking at myself in the mirror to get hand and finger configurations down correctly. So this is pretty helpful so I can start doing things the right way, without having to get up and pose in front of the mirror while random soldiers walk in the military latrine looking at me like I'm crazy.

Short and sweet, but quickly gets the basics down.

The last frame was essentially the gist of every critique I gave out when I was still in the OCT circuit.

In your 3/4 arm foreshortening example, it could've been illustrated better since you're using the arm as a cylinder: the base of the cylinder has appears as an ellipse on a 2D plane, whose width varies depending on the surface's angle towards the viewer (whereas in this example, the base appears identical, therefore still conveying that the arm is perpendicular to the camera's angle/vector.)

Better. Also noticed that in your first panel with cubes, they edge lines are not leading towards the vanishing points in all three examples.

Awesome! Now 3rd panel with the arm stripes: they curve like the sides of an ellipse by following the same principle as the base of the cylinder. Your stripes need more curvature to compensate for that kind of foreshortening. XD

Though the movie is from the early 90's BUT STILL...this song in particular sounds 80's as fuck.

It's the same guy who did the Beverly Hills Cop theme.
