10 typical perspective errors

Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.

1. Lines not reaching the vanishing point

Well this is pretty simple to avoid but it’s the most common mistake. It’s probably due to either carelessness or really not having understood the basic of perspective. I encourage you to go back and find some basic tutorial for this.

Anyway, be ALWAYS careful about where to ‘send’ your lines, they NEED to go towards the correct vanishing point or it will just look awkward. Double check if necessary.

And always, ALWAYS use a ruler.

If your style requires lines that are a bit less geometrical (as mine do, I have a style of inking that’s sketchy so ‘perfect’ lines drawn with a ruler usually don’t fit well in the picture) use a ruler anyway for the pencils and then ink later by freehand. At least you’ll have correct guidelines underneath.

For traditional drawing be sure you have a ruler and be sure to use it for each one of your lines.

Modern drawing software will help you a lot with this if you draw directly on computer: painting software such as Clip Studio Paint or Manga Studio 4EX or 5 have perspective tools that will automatically snap your lines towards the vanishing point.

Great Perspective tips!

I got some questions about this, and there’s no point in me posting any brush-sets since I basically only use three. I remember when I was new to Photoshop, and I found it really hard to find any good info on how to make my brushes less blurry, so here it is. All of these require a tablet with pen pressure enabled for good results.

The first one is my sketching/lineart brush, which gives a really nice crisp line. I also use this for laying down my flat colors and when I’m doing solid shadows. Since it produces a very thin tip, it’s great for defining hair/fur without much problem.

The second is my main blending brush, which I usually combine with a lower opacity, from 35%-80%, depending on what I’m doing. The “transfer”-option gives a nice texture without being overwhelming.

The third is basically just the same as the blending brush, just with softer edges for, you know, when you need that.
