Framed Perspective 1 and 2
Distance lear ning Two technical yet beautifully illustrated guides to creating perspective in comic and graphic novel environments
Discover how to create perspective in comic and graphic novel environments.
with 25 years of experience in feature animation, Marcos Mateu-Mestre is the perfect person to equip artists with the technical knowledge needed to create high-quality art for the entertainment industry.
In the first of these two volumes, he focuses on breaking down the art and science of perspective and showing how these principles can be used to create entire, believable environments for visual storytelling. In the second, slimmer volume (120 pages to the first’s 228), he covers more intricate challenges with scenes, such as projecting shadows on to environments and depicting figures in perspective, and in different situations.
Both volumes explain the technical aspects of drawing in a manner that would sit happily in any academic textbook. And by teaming this with expressive and exciting comic art, which help clarify the points made with reference to his real-world workflow, Marcos has created a unique learning resource. Plus the final sections of each book – notes on composition, glossary and index – work together beautifully to pull all the advice and information together.
In-depth captions alongside technical diagrams help the reader to demystify this daunting art topic.
