Perspective helps us to translate the illusion of 3-dimensional space on a 2-dimensional plane. In this class we will begin to take the rules learned in introduction to perspective and build on them by learning how to create scale, design shots through usage of the horizon line. How techniques such as forced perspective and 3-point perspective can be used to make a drawing even more dynamic, and how the combination of all these techniques put together work to create better illustrations. Lessons will build on the lessons of the previous week and it is recommended that there is a grasp of the fundamentals of perspective.
