Understanding perspective is a must for all students with professional aspirations. Whether your goal is to pursue concepting, illustration, fine art, animation, matte painting, or almost any other representational art based profession, a functional understanding of perspective is a must. This class is designed as an introduction to perspective that will help create a foundation that can be built upon for years to come. We will cover topics such as 1, 2, and 3 point perspective, boxes, circles, ellipses, cylinders, inclined planes, vanishing trace, depth measuring, and more. Most of the term will focus on technical perspective information and the last 2 or 3 weeks will focus on relating that information back to head and figure drawing.

Brian Knox began studying full time at the atelier in 2012 and began teaching in 2015. As a student his emphasis was on logical and simple head and figure construction. As an instructor his dedication to teaching full time has allowed him to focus on finding clear explanations for complicated concepts and, when combined with his gestural/structural approach to head and figure drawing, has helped countless students tackle difficult subjects over the last 5 years. Brian’s ultimate goal is to produce a series of head and figure drawing books that rival those of the great instructors of the past (i.e. Bridgman, Loomis) but in a more modern format. Each term brings him one step closer to realizing that goal.
