Perspective In Action



Using the graphic novel format, Perspective in Action features 33 easy-to-follow demonstrations to teach the major discoveries in perspective. Perspective is a fundamental element in the development of art and for understanding spatial relationships, but it is an underserved topic in the world of art instruction. Author and artist David Chelsea takes readers through the major perspective-related developments in history, teaching them how to re-create these same experiments by leading artists in all fields (including drawing, painting, and sculpture). Covering a wide-range of mediums (pen and ink, paint, chalk, digital art, woodwork, and more), Perspective in Action gives readers a more hands-on approach to perspective, as opposed to the usual theoretical presentations found in other books.

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 "Perspective in Action is the most wide-ranging and authoritative book on perspective I've ever seen. David Chelsea examines every aspect of the subject imaginable, presenting it all in a graphic novel format that is both engrossing and easy to understand. For those who are serious about mastering perspective, this book is essential."  —Mark Crilley, author of The Realism Challenge, The Drawing Lesson, Manga Art, and Mastering Manga and creator of Akiko
