01 Here's the Thing About 1 Pt Perspective by betsyillustration 01 Here's the Thing About 1 Pt Perspective by betsyillustration
Update: Finally got around to cleaning up some of the thumbnail sketches and using better handwriting. ^^;

People tend to groan when the subject of perspective comes up. I think it's because there are lots of tutorials for how to make a box in perspective, or a building in perspective, but then when you try, everything looks really stiff and you're not sure why, and end up avoiding it whenever possible.

I was amazed when I took a perspective class, and the first 2 weeks were spent on the bigger picture: story & composition, and the most of the third week was spent on relative sizes, nothing actually to do with perspective grids. My mind was blown.

Good job! This tutorial actually taught me something I didn't know and presented in a clear, easy to understand, and fun way.

The bleeding effect never consciously crossed my mind before. It really does add a certain layer of depth. Thanks a lot for the tips!

It never crossed my mind either, but when I started double checking background, and layout art in animation especially, just about every single one had a foreground bleed!

This is without a doubt one of the best mini-tutorials I have ever seen on perspective. You conveyed so much in so few words and showed it rather than described it. Great work!
