About This Class


In this class, you will learn how to draw a messy alleyway in a One Point Perspective. This is done almost entirely with a freehand and fun method. This helps you to focus on being creative and not restricting your ideas so much.  You will learn how to simplify areas within your work to create the illusion of depth.

We will first start with a basic thumbnail to create our concept. This will act as a guide for the rest of the illustration.  You will then learn how to correct areas within the artwork by using basic perspective rules.

Then after all the details are in place we will begin to ink the work and finalize the concepts.  By adding shadows and texture we can pull it all together.

I hope you enjoy these lessons and I am here if you have any questions. The next class will be on Two Point Perspective, so I hope you will join me for that one as well! :)
