Yep. Read and enjoyed it 'till about half way through and then it's completely over my head.

Postby micma on Fri Mar 11, 2005 1:31 pm

yeah i found the middle a bit confusing but i'd still rather this than other perspective books. and who knows my brain might actually get around it.

Micma,
I have read it and found it very informative. I agree with Dean it can be a bit of brain melter at first but read it a couple of times and it will slowly sink in.
The use of the comic book story telling and David chelsea's sense of humour make it readable.
Stick with it and I am sure you will pick up some very useful tips on perspective
even if you choose not to implement them all, it's good to know about these things as an artist.
I have it on my book shelf and turn to it periodically. Another good source would be How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way, it has a small perspective section which is easy to understand but covers all the basics you need for comic art.

good luck

Micma, I first found a copy in my local library.. try before you buy :)

(but I'd join the recommended reading people even though I never try anything even half as ambitious as in there).

Well while we are speaking about perspective, I pointed out this Loomis book in a perspective thread at the old OzComics site, and Tonia has also pointed the book out elsewhere on these forums, but it doesn't hurt pointing it out again:

Page 28 is where the chapter on perspective starts.

loomis book

Postby micma on Mon Mar 14, 2005 11:08 am

thanks for pointing that out, everybit helps. I remember the loomis books when i was ten but didn't pay too much to perspective i was more interested in superheroes with big muscles and the women busty. My earlier drawings reflected quite alot of those haha. I wish i kept my original loomis book.
