What's difficult about perspective for you?
Hello there fellow deviants,
Perspective is probably one of the most difficult concepts in art to grasp. I suppose pretty much everyone has or has had problems with it, even some more experienced artist. I can tell you I'm not exception to that. Even thought I wasn't extremely bad at drawing, it still took me 6 years to even figure out where I needed to work on before I could address the deeply rooted issues I had.
I have basically based all of my artistic understanding on perspective and 3D. Although I can't say I'm perfect in my execution, by looking my gallery you can see that pretty much all of my drawings tries to convey the feel of depth and 3D. I think that's one of the factors that make my drawings stand out and maybe you also feel that way. Drawing depth has become a second nature for me.
You may also have noticed that I have about four tutorials (depending on how we define perspective) that tries to explain a thing or two about perspective. I have also few practices/demo

This weekend is Anime Weekend Atlanta!

My friend Dan Houser and I will be doing arts for people. It will be fun!

I hope to see you there.

I have lots of awesome stuff just coming up around the corner with Vigilance Press, but I've been too busy to update here as often as I should... sorry.

I should probably post during the day, when I can think of clever things to say... nitenite, folks!


PS- Stop by at AWA and say hello!

Hi, James. Thanks so much for your recent visit and the fave. It is greatly appreciated! :D
jamesdawsey Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013
Thank you, man! I've loved your art since meeting you in person at the Georgia Renaissance fair/festival years ago (was in the company of Aaron Vester at the time)(Assuming this is the same Giadrosich I met those years ago, and I think it is). I sat and sketched at your booth for a little bit, talking art with you. Your stuff is just gorgeous and I love the depth of that piece in particular. :) Keep it up!
