Since retiring in 2007, I've taken up again the interest I had when growing up.  I've always liked to  draw and took drawing lessens in my pre-teen years.  Some say I was pretty good at it.  In my teen years, I experimented with photography.  Mom and Dad had a Kodak Browning camera.  After taking my first set of pictures, photography replaced my interest in drawing.  But after graduation, I had to focus on advanced education and getting a job.  Now after many years and being very fortunate on have a good career in both enjoying (most) of the positions I worked and being able to put aside money to fund a retirement.   I have now returned to my artistic basic enjoyments again.  I have my photography work in the Fine Arts doing well, and with that established, I'm learning the basics of pen and pencil drawing again.  This video and the other (free) eBooks have been beneficial in bring back some of those skills I thought were long lost.

Thank you to Courtney Jordan

I just finished two weeks of perspective with my drawing class.  In your three point perspective I teach thay while yours looks correct and it is often used in cartooning it is a distortion.  Shouldn't the bottom of the structure "realy" start to recede downward to a 4th. VP?  As the top recedes away going up so to is the bottom receding going down once it passes the HL. 

Here is a great statement I literally MAKE my students remember.  I call it the number one rule for Linear Perspective:

All LINES that are PARALLEL to each other and RECEDING from the PICTURE PLANE go to the same VANISHING POINT.

It works wonders. Harry

I wish this were not video, but regular ebook instead. Video goes by far too fast for me to get much benefit from it.

I agree! I'd love to see a free e-book download for Perspective Drawing.
