extreme perspective

David Chelsea has a new perspective book out and its really worth owning. His first book Perspective for comic book artists is possibly the best book on perspective out there because you can read it, learn all the basics and not fall asleep. Yeah -it sounds cheesy, but perspective is a dry subject to read about and what David does really well is make it fun and easy to learn.

His new book covers more complex topics such as curvelinear perspective, curved stair cases and more challenging perspective topics. The good news is that once again the book is done in the format of a comic (like Scott McCloud Understanding comics). This makes the book accessible to everyone who wants to learn this stuff. On a side note, we have been looking for a book to cover curvilinear perspective for some time and this is the first book we found to do it and to do it justice.

check both books out in our shop now.
