How to Draw Animals in Perspective



Understanding anatomy isn't enough to enable you to draw animals realistically. If you don't understand perspective, you're doomed to draw your creatures in dull poses, mainly in the side view.

If you're aware of this problem, you have probably tried to learn perspective before. You have been told to start every picture with a dense grid of converging lines, which you are supposed to follow. But what works great for architecture and man-made objects fails miserably when it comes to live, flexible creatures.

So how are you supposed to draw animals in 3D space? You need perspective for this, but not the one you may know. This course will show you a different face of perspective—you will learn not only how to convey depth, but how to take full control over it.
