Extreme Perspective! For Artists: Learn the Secrets of Curvilinear, Cylindrical, Fisheye, Isometric, and Other Amazing Systems that Will Make Your Drawings Pop Off the Page by David Chelsea

In this sequel to the classic bestseller Perspective! For the Comic Book Artist, David Chelsea takes perspective to a whole other level—by exploring the most dramatic viewpoints employed by today’s artists. Many of these techniques have been carefully guarded secrets for centuries. But David, and his hollow-headed friend, Mugg, make them accessible to a new generation of artists, cartoonists, illustrators, and animators. In Extreme Perspective! For Artists, you’ll learn how to
 
•         Render complicated multi-sided objects in perfect perspective
•         Create accurate shadows and reflections from your own imagination
•         Master the most difficult kinds of curvilinear perspective systems
•         Draw eye-popping images in fisheye perspective
•         Use your computer to create elaborate scenes quicker and more easily
•         … And much, much more!
 
Also included is a comprehensive library of perspective grids on DVD, suitable for printing or using with Photoshop and other applications.
