About This Class

0970f910

It seems like a typical perspective drawing is very often a cityscape. My own interest in perspective came, instead, from trying to understand how to draw basic objects. Even basic objects rely on solid perspective in order to appear convincing in our drawings. This forced me realize that nearly all forms of drawing and artwork depend on the artist’s grasp of perspective to be successful.

I also want to show you a different approach to drawing in perspective. This class will utilize a tool, called the COV Rig, that helps artists draw very accurate perspective. In other words, there will be no guesswork on how to draw a realistic tire form and wheel in 3D.

In this project, I will demonstrate, step-by-step, how to draw this wheel in two-point perspective. I will be working in Affinity Designer, a vector drawing program very similar to Adobe Illustrator. However, the construction techniques are just as applicable to other digital art programs like Photoshop and Sketchbook Pro - as well as pencil and paper.

This class includes:

  • How to prepare a plan for drawing in perspective. 
  • How to maintain accurate proportions while drawing in 3D. 
  • How to create circular shapes in perspective. 
  • Hands-on experience practicing with moderate to advanced guide construction techniques.
  • How to create and use Dynamic Rulers.
  • Plus several tips on how to embellish our drawing with a cool illustrative style.

So join me on a fun project that will enhance your skills for drawing objects in perspective.

That’s me in my office, at my desk. It’s usually the easiest place to find me. I’ve worked in the graphic design industry for the past 33 years. I’ve been happily married for 20 of those years and my family has grown to include two teenagers, a small dog, and three fish. I currently live in Orlando, Florida where I work as a freelancer. Away from my desk, I enjoy being neighbors with Mickey Mouse, continuing my struggle to master finger-style guitar, and riding my mountain bike on the beautiful trails found here in Florida.
