Explore the principles of perspective guided by artist and architectural illustrator Jeff DiCicco, and learn to draw depictions of depth so convincing, you feel as though you could step inside. Delve into the process of establishing a vanishing point and a horizon line by using a ruler to draw precise orthogonal and transversal lines. Then sketch a recessional grid system that arranges three-dimensional shapes and architecture in illusionistic space. Create precise, realistic interior and exterior floor plans from one-point perspective, and learn Jeff's expert tips for alignment and accuracy. Then, discover two-point perspective with a cityscape exercise and rendering of a private residence. Learn the powerful system of perspective, and gain the tools to portray life as seen by the human eye!
