Perspective in Plane Method by Toshinho Perspective in Plane Method by Toshinho
This a simplified version of a "Box method" I did some times ago. The principle is similar to that it's doing the opposite, trying to imagine a line towards the non-existing focal point. With this way their is less preparation, lines and horizon being involved and it help you train eye-balling the perspective.

In my personal case it's rather difficult to do "FISH-EYE / Concave / Convex" type perspective with traditional perspective method. While plane method is about establishing frame of the plane and once you have it's about finding the cross point to determine the center and the depth. The curves then are simply an adjustment between the parallel frame.

I love this method! Iv'e been fretting over how to put a vanishing point in my backgrounds, when it would end up miles out of the picture. With this, though, you've made it much MUCH easier to plan out my bg's!

If you made a book out of all your tutorials I would buy it like five times over. Lol.

Thanks for sharing these tips. I'll try it in a future project.

Thank you so much for this. I find that I am pretty good at working with perspective, but, you are right, too precise and a little inconsistency can throw the whole thing off.

I'll have to try this method out!

Okay, this is rather brilliant and it makes complete sense. I've been doing something similar for years, but usually it would be an object in the drawing that helped dictate the relative perspective of everything around it. This is much more uniform. Just brilliant.

Do you ever use a perspective grid?  And if so would you mind doing a tutorial on how you make one?  I could use it.

This is very interesting.  I found that I usually could create a convincing background when I was sketching free-hand, but it didn't look as good once I used rulers and proper points and lines.  David Chelsea, in his books on perspective for comic book artists, is usually strict about lines.  But he does admit that in some cases it's just as good to "guess" (or eyeball it, as you say).  I really like the part about making a fish-eye perspective; I had never thought of it the way you present it.

This is useful stuff that a lot of folks tend to neglect.  Thanks for sharing this! :)

Thank you for posting this.  I printed this out so that I can practice later.
I haven't made a drawing in so long!

This looks pretty useful and instructive =3 Way easier to understand and achieve than the Convex method indeed ^^
