Hey guys, I’m working on a short but sweet perspective video series.

The first is under FOUR MINUTES and explains the fundamentals of linear perspective.

You won’t find this information anywhere else on youtube, but it’s required for more advanced skills like creating perfect cubes in 1, 2, and 3 point perspective and rotating them in any direction(also not available on youtube).

As of now I'm open to tutorial requests.

That was well explained!

And my tutorial request would be an in-depth explanation of two-point perspective.

Tutorial request: how to draw ellipses/circles in 2-point perspective

plot twist: drawn without guessing where the construction lines are, lol.

(I was trying to find a tutorial on drawing circles in perspective yesterday and all the ones I used switched to "guessing" halfway through.... i'm terrible at guessing, haha, I want construction lines)

Microraptor: Thanks for the feedback! I hope to have a thorough 2 point, and eventually 3 point perspective video out eventually, but in the meantime I'll have some 2 point(and 3 point) videos useful for webcomics artists: things like how to quickly draw objects in correct proportion and scale, how to rotate objects, how to draw objects of the same size between different perspectives, etc.

These methods were closely guarded secrets by powerful TV and Film unions here in America(which is probably why this information isn't easily available) but it's also really hard to explain without video.


Lt. Locust: You want to draw a circle with lots of accurate construction lines? You got it:

This method applies to 1, 2 and 3 point perspective, but works best if you know how to draw a perfect square in perspective.
Drawing perfect squares in perspective is on my tutorial to do list, but the basic ingredients are:
1) Locate the vertical and/or horizontal 45 degree diagonal vanishing points(dvp). Once you have the dvps you can draw perfect squares/cubes in perspective.
2) Use reference points to quickly transfer squares/cubes anywhere in your scene at the correct scale.

Keep an eye out for my video "How to draw perfect cubes in 2 point perspective". I'll also have a video about reference points too.

THAT'S AWESOME THANK YOU!!

That was straight to-the-point and really easy to follow, thank you!

I can draw squares/cubes in 1, 2 and 3 point perspective, but I don't think they're perfect squares. I actually don't think I know how to draw perfect squares.

Super Fast Tutorial: How to Draw A Perfect Cube in 1 Point Perspective in 5 Minutes!

Learn how to draw a perfect cube in 1 point perspective in 30 secs. The rest of the video is spent explaining WHY it works, and involves 2 and 3 point perspective:

If you're new to linear perspective or just need a refresher, watch my "Perspective Fundamentals in Under 4 Minutes" video first.

Any questions let me know!

I was fooling around with 1-pt circles, and I'm so happy with how they turned out!! Still a little clunky, which will be fixed with practice. I'll be trying out the cube video later this week.

You don't know how long I've been trying and failing to draw circles by hand!! Thanks again!! XD XD

So glad that circle construction technique is working for you! Looking good. Impressive how you were able to fit the far right ellipse into such an incredibly distorted square.

Guessing at freehand ellipses can be extremely difficult if you don't know what they're supposed to look like, but this method gives you the ability to accurately check and self correct.

For more info about drawing freehand ellipses in perspective check out Scott Robertson's article below:
