Fundamentals of Perspective 3

Three-Point Principles and Concepts with Gary Meyer

Sample Clip

A solid understanding of Perspective gives the artist the means to draw what they see both accurately and believably. This series on the Fundamentals of Perspective will provide artists with the understanding of not only the concepts but also puts them into practice as Illustration master Gary Meyer guides you through each exercise. In this lecture titled Fundamentals of Perspective 3: Three-Point Principles and Concepts, we begin by discussing three-point perspective. Here, Gary breaks down three-point perspective and illustrates the terminology and concepts to consider when using three-point perspective. We then move on to a variety of topics, starting with methods for plotting shadows in perspective using both natural and artificial light scenarios. The series ends with Gary discussing how to correctly plot reflections in both one and two-point perspective and ends by demonstrating how to plot and transfer scale in reflections.
