Simplifying Perspective: A Step-by-Step Guide for Visual Artists, written by Robert Pastrana and published by Focal Press, breaks down the principles of perspective into something that is easy to understand and use. With approachable lessons and clear visual step-by-step instruction, it provides you with powerful techniques that help you turn a troubled drawing into a living, breathing, dimensional scene. If you're an animator, illustrator, comic book artist, game artist or anything in between, you need to be able to create images that accurately and realistically show space, dimension and form.

This comprehensive guide to perspective is tailored specifically for artists who need to learn the ins and outs of one, two, and three-point perspective, measuring, shadows, reflections, and more. Simplifying Perspective presents complex drawing concepts in an easy-to-follow, approachable manner so you can finally learn the essentials of perspective without the anticipated frustration.

The book provides a wealth of examples and detailed visual instructions with hundreds of color coded, step-by-step diagrams that allow you to easily follow the technical process of each construction. A comprehensive companion website includes additional resources on perspective with a range of work to help further your skills.
