Learn how to create the illusion of three-dimensional space in your drawings
It is as mundane as it is astounding: placed in the right way, a couple of lines on paper create three-dimensional space. To be more exact, the illusion of space. The interest in three-dimensional drawing may initially arise from the intention to depict visible reality. However, the creation of depth is a fascinating challenge in every artistic composition. In this volume, Peter Boerboom and Tim Proetel have arranged, commented on, and with a guiding hand intuitively and tangibly presented the fundamental methods of three-dimensional illustration. For laymen and professionals alike, this book offers a refreshing, simple approach to the graphic depiction of three-dimensionality.
