Get a little perspective

The Dictionary describes the meaning of perspective as, “the art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.”

This is an amazing thing to study a lot ! It will make your work pop out and look outstanding, as you’re portraying objects in three dimensions. Viewers can associate with your work, and can focus on all the details, instead of getting caught up in perspective errors. There’s 3 main types of perspective, 1-point, 2-point and you guessed it 3-point.

1-point– One point on the horizon line (eye level), all perspective lines travel towards that point, this can be used in so many different ways to achieve some really creative results. You should always try to put the horizon line near the bottom of the image, many artists place it too high, which focuses too much attention on the ground. This is useful for some images, but the majority have low horizon lines.
