Title : Vanishing Point: Perspective for Comics from the Ground Up
ASIN : 1581809549
Description : Master perspective like the pros! Vanishing Point shows you how to conquer the fundamentals of perspective drawing and then equips you with technical tricks and tools that make dynamic and complex scenes a snap. This complete guide helps you build your understanding of perspective to an intuitive level so you can draw anything you can imagine. Inside you’ll find:
- Complete instruction on drawing in one-, two- and three-point perspective and four- and five-point curvilinear perspective (where “straight” lines are drawn as curves). Curvilinear perspective has not been taught in any other perspective book – until now!
- Full-color, step-by-step demonstrations move you beyond the theories and let you practice the techniques in real scenes.
- A special chapter on drawing curves helps you break out of the box and draw cylinders, ellipses, cars and, most importantly, people in perfect perspective.
- Shortcuts and tips show you how to create believable perspective in no time flat.
No matter what your skill level, Vanishing Point offers you a new way of looking at perspective and lets you draw as though you have decades of drawing experience – even if you don’t. You’ll learn everything you need to know to pour your imagination on the page with power and confidence.

Review : Perfect addition to any artist’s library
I met the author, Jason Cheeseman-Meyer, at a comic book convention and had the pleasure to speak with him at great length about all the effort and info he put into his book. As a professional comic book artist, colorist, and illustrator I rely on good reference to help me take on the many challenges that come with each new project. I have a tattered old book on perspective that I have been carrying around with me for over ten years. That book has now officially been replaced with Vanishing Point. This is the de facto book on perspective drawing.
Vanishing Point is aimed at comic book artist and is easy to understand and execute but it also goes far beyond the basics. Students, illustrators, and even people working in the design & drafting fields will be surprised at how much information in this book could help them every day.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who aspires to take their artwork to the next level.
