    In this tutorial, you'll learn how to do a large 3D anamorphic drawing. The theme and message I want to express is "choose peace, not violence", so I've chosen a revolver as the main subject of the art work. What we want is to have some sketches large enough to pose with them and become part of the whole composition. By the end of this tutorial, you'll understand my work flow from the first studies through to the final work. I'm also going to teach you all kinds of graphic tricks to help you work faster and draw difficult shapes such as guns and hands. Read More…
