Mastering Perspective Breakthrough

  • Oh my goodness. I just realized everything I learned about solving optics problems in Physics applies to my perspective problems and think I solved a composition! Mind blown.

    Thanks to that Mastering perspective class and the careful graphs of my youth!

    I've spent hours trying to adjust camera angles and five minutes into the video I just "see" the missing point. So glad I got the subscription. I feel like it's really helping me learn how to think for illustration and construction. 💕

    Was worth it to do the life drawing stuff to learn accuracy first but feel like this is really helping!

    Done fangirling. 😛

  • I feel ya! I went into Jake's How to Draw Everything class going "I know all this stuff!" but good lord... I learned a lot lol. I had so many "Oh, wait, THAT'S how you do that?!" moments lol

  • @thiskatecreates That's so great!!!! 😃

  • Do you think this is maybe also to do with something Sean McCabe at SeanWes refers to as the Power of Seven, whereby you need to hear something at least 7 times before it clicks and you fully understand it?

    It's just, I finished the Mastering Perspective course last week and I am still feeling arghhh about my understanding of perspective. Took me so long to finish this one as well, like months, as I started to almost fear sitting down to studying … I found it really really hard studying perspective in a way that I don't normally find with learning other areas of Art.

    It is funny though, because a few nights after I finished the course and exercises etc, I sat down to do some perspective sketches and while I felt like I had really struggled with the course, I realised I had actually learnt a lot more than I thought. I think If I replayed this course, I would learn a ton more … maybe if I reply it seven times, I can have a breakthrough like you too 🙂
