A little Bully Technique

With this weeks sideways bit, I thought I would share a bit of info about my favorite drawing technique, which is the bird’s eye view, or three point perspective drawing.  Using this technique is a great way to draw a viewer into the image.

Below is a base pencil drawing of a scene. Scroll down to see the breakdown.

I have outlined the direction of the image. As you can see smaller items rest near or at the vanishing point and move outward from there. The green lizard on the right hand side is the biggest item in the image, he is the closest to the viewer and the furthest from our little vanishing point where the perspective begins.

Broken down even further you can see the direction lines.  Happy reading!
