I ask because I've been working on a drawing, and I've spent the last hour trying to make the perspective work, and I'm rather frustrated, haha.
But my point is, perspective has always been a big weakness of mine. Even if I have a dynamic shot using perspective in my head, when I try to draw it it always comes out looking flat.
So, does anyone have any advice on how to improve on doing perspective shots? Or, at least a good source for photos to use as reference for doing them?
Apologies if this isn't the right place to ask this.
i know your struggle. i too always tended to concentrate more on the human figure and left the background white because i had trouble to bring the perspective in my head to paper.
Unfortunately there is no shortcut for perspective. as every other aspect of drawing and painting the only way to master it is practice, practice, practice. and when you have understood the basics it is quite easy.
I personaly learned alot by a book by henk rotgans, but he has only books in german, french and spanish on amazon. in german it's called 'räumliches zeichnen' and it is especially good for beginners.
Another book for you maybe 'perspective! for comic book artists' by david chelsea. but i liked the one by henk rotgans better.
the very best book in my opinion is 'how to draw' by scott robertson and thomas bertling. But i wouldn't recommend it for a beginner as it is quite challenging.
so just keep on drawing!
if you like, you can upload the drawing you had problems with, so i can have a try to help you:)
Have you tried the box method for drawing the head?
Basically, you use a rectangular cube to place the head in perspective and then place the features on measured out points on the cube.
It is a bit easier than trying to use the sphere method.
I have posted my instagram link below with a sample of what I am talking about.
