Praise

“Cleverly packaged in a graphic novel format, artist Chelsea’s (Perspective! For Comic Book Artists) book covers all aspects of simple perspective drawing and depicts its more complex applications. Step-by-step sketching exercises, craft projects, and experiments re-creating historical breakthroughs in the form. This guide shows how to draw in one-, two-, three-, six-, and multiple-point perspective and how to build a camera obscura, an Ames room, and a cabinet of wonder. A chapter on motion perspective demystifies the science behind realistic animation. Chapters on distorted perspective and stereo vision are also included. VERDICT This fun-to-read guide is best suited to readers of intermediate artistic skill level.”
Library Journal

“This is a welcome, exhaustive introduction to the underlying structure of any drawing. It’s like a lesson in perspective from Winsor McCay. It’s about time we had a very human guide like this. Even old pros will use it.”
—Will Eisner, creator of The Spirit and author of Comics and Sequential Art

“Perspective is the power to create worlds. Now, thanks to David Chelsea’s Perspective! for Comic Book Artists, you can make that power your own. Don’t miss this chance to master in a day what others have taken years to learn. You will never find a better book on this subject.”
—Scott McCloud, creator of Zot! and author of Understanding Comics
