Welcome to my Course, "Drawing Amazing Backgrounds with Perspective - Step by Step." This course will teach you how to use 1, 2, and 3 Point Perspective to create interesting and imaginative backgrounds. You will work with me as we draw an illustration for each example. This will allow you to learn not only how to use these powerful techniques but also how to create environments from imagination.
You will learn a variety of techniques to create shapes with dimension through these lessons. Such as cubes, pyramids, archways, and angles. By the end of this course, you will have a better understanding on how to draw rooms, buildings, brick walls, windows, furniture, and all in Linear Perspective!
Things we will be Focusing on in this Course
- Creative Design Thinking
- Expressive Line Making
- Depth + Scale within Our Scenes
- Mapping Out Space in Perspective
- Adding Values for Portfolio or Client Work
- Correcting Flaws within the Work
This course is designed to teach you how to draw detailed backgrounds step by step. You will be drawing an alleyway with one-point perspective, an interior room with two-point perspective, and a view looking up at various buildings using three-point perspective. These will each be created with a different style to give you the most versatile experience possible. It is important that you not only learn how to draw with perspective but also how to create a variety of styles with these techniques. I want my students to be able to relate this information to comics, storyboards, and animation. If you learn to be versatile as an illustrator you have a much greater chance of success. This is what I have experienced in my career and I want to share that with you! Drawing background with Linear Perspective is an extremely important asset to have as an artist. So let's get started right now and put Perspective Art in your toolbox!
This course has been updated on September 2023. I have added more content in the first section covering the techniques that help you to map distance, mirror objects, and draw cast shadows in perspective. Also check out the section, "Art Files and Practice Sheets". I have included some additional content in there as well.
I have plenty more planned for this course so I hope you will join me!
I am here if you have any questions and I value your feedback!
