Perspective Drawing, originally part of our Figure Drawing Secrets series. We have made this module a standalone minicourse because the principles of perspective extend far beyond figure drawing, offering valuable insights for various drawing applications.

This course focuses on construction drawing, emphasizing the mathematical principles of perspective, which are crucial even when drawing freehand or using the LUCY Drawing Tool. Observational drawing captures details and proportions from life or reference images, relying on the artist's ability to replicate the subject accurately. In contrast, construction drawing breaks down complex forms into basic geometric shapes, aiding in visualizing and constructing figures from imagination or enhancing observed details.

Though these methods may seem different, they complement each other. Understanding fundamental shapes can enhance sketches made through observation or with the LUCY Drawing Tool, building essential skills for completing your LUCY sketches with a solid construction background.
