Great

This class reinforced the importance of perspective for me. It's still very challenging for me, but I feel like I have the tools now to improve and produce the kind of work that I'd like to. Thanks for another good one.

Pretty good and a lot of fun!

I was surprised, TBH. He goes over a few things to really get you rolling with perspective, and reinforce the points of what happens at extreme perspectives, something I sometimes miss. This is my first completed course here. There are two things ...

The techniques explained in this video alone has helped me improve tremendously in how I tackle certain problems in a piece or visualize a concept from start to finish. Would recommend to anyone

Even though the topic has been touched in other courses, there is really great information in this course. It definitely makes you look at drawing from a different perspective, no pun intended :).

It took more time to find the reference image with matching perspective than it takes me now to just construct the object inside a simple perspective box.

this helped out a lot. I wasn't a fan of having the 2nd camera overtop of the instructor while drawing. It felt more in the way than helpful and on some demonstrations it covered up what the instructor was drawing. Overall extremely pleased and th...

Towards the end of this class things began to click for me. I am a novice. I started two months ago taking SVS courses, following the suggested curriculum. There has been plenty of frustration, particularly watching the ease by which the polish...

Visualizing objects from different views in perspective is a vital skill as an artist to have. A lot of books or tutorials say this, but then give limited or no info on how to practice it. In this class, Will shows us how to practice and build tha...

Deceptively simple, this course is actually full of tips and aha moments. I left the tutorial with a much better understanding on how to draw things from whatever angle I can think of.

Very useful techniques and tips are given here so we can learn how to construct objects in a convincing and accurate way. It makes drawing a little easier and more intuitive!

I love this course, I have watched it twice now and both times find myself amazed at my drawings as i work through it. I have a hard time making myself draw by developing the structure, I'm much more into quick and sketchy instead, but I want m...

I am astonished at how my drawing has gone from flat and boring to 3 dimensional and dynamic virtually overnight. This class has brought so much of what I have learnt together in one giant ah-huh! moment and I'm now feeling excited as to what I wi...

Learn how to imagine objects in various camera angles and build them (draw) from simple shapes.

In this tutorial you will be given the steps to draw various common objects from different angles from your imagination. Rather than learning to draw from observation - visualizing is a powerful skill that will fill in the gaps when you can't find the perfect reference photos to work from.

Some of what you will learn:

  • Drawing from the shoulder instead of the wrist and fingers.
  • Fast lines vs slow lines.
  • All objects begin from 3-4 simple shapes.
  • Drawing in perspective - rules review.
  • Finding the center line on all objects to give reference points for details.
  • Visualizing an object before drawing it.
  • Applying visualization skills to your own illustration work.

What you need:

  • Pencil
  • Paper
