Perspectives Tutorial by DerSketchie Perspectives Tutorial by DerSketchie
A perspective of the human body seen from intense angles. Something close up and personal is implied by drawing something that's so "inside your bubble". There's a few other examples of this that I wanted to put in but didn't have room. If I can think of a few more I may make a supplementary piece.

Foreshortening always looks wrong to me even when it's done correctly, but from what I can tell, these seem pretty accurate. Thanks for providing them

My quest to be able to foreshorten properly continues...

Hi DerSketchie, I wasn't sure if you'd answered this somewhere else, but have you found any books or materials that have helped you achieve people at different angles and perspectives? Thank you!

How do you draw off of the focal point exactly?
Reply
:icondersketchie:
DerSketchie Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013
I always start with what I want to be the most eye grabbing as the focal point, then roughly work my way back. Start out with a kind of skeletal drawing for the body so you can keep the  shrinking away effect proportional. I do agree with needthistool on the whole take-some-pictures-of-yourself, though. It a fantastic way to get reference material. Even better if you can get a friend involved, then you can just take the pictures from above or below as needed without guessing if it's at the right angle.

needthistool Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013
There's not really hard and fast rules unless you know a character's relative proportions and even then it can be tricky, because usually limbs and such won't be all lined up with eachother. In that case you can just kinda draw geometric shapes in perspective (rectangular solids are easiest) and then make sure that say the arm or whatever you're currently drawing occupies the same sort of volume in a similar orientation.

If all else fails, take some stupid photos of yourself and/or an animal similar to the one your drawing, and use that as a basis, applying fisheye filters where appropriate.

That'd be what I'd say, anyways.

Any advice as to how certain haircuts would look like from birds-eye-view? Make sure you can cover spiky hair as well, because I have a character whose hair is somewhat spiky and I have a hard time drawing him in such an angle because of his complex hairstyle.
