The pictures below are a tiny sampling of what you can do with perspective drawing. This is an elementary introduction and if you find that you want to learn more about perspective then I urge you to seek a book that teaches it in detail.
To do this linear/technical perspective you will need:
- large drawing surface
- paper and drafting tape (to tape the paper to the drawing surface)
- 18" straight edge, a yard stick might do as long as it is straight
- pencils, erasers
That is all for this introduction to perspective. Study the drawings and try to draw using perspective.
I have all of the books linked below and my undisclosed opinion varies on each of the books.
(Links last checked August 2, 2011)
Elementary: Lessons in Perspective Drawing published by Rod and Staff
7th - High School: Lifepacs Elective Art Unit 4 (You do not need the teacher's book for this one course, in my opinion)
Advanced: The Art of Teaching Art by D. Rockman. Heads-up- This is an art book, so of course there are nudes in it.
Also check your library and the internet for resources.
