tea concept by comrade-carpet tea concept by comrade-carpet
Francois' langur: Well, I think I would have to agree with you on that point, my fine gentleman. However, on the other hand, I must say you are quite the flaming asshole.
Leif: Indeed, indeed.

This is just some concept art for a much bigger picture I want to do for RGYoung777, but I have run up to a brick wall. Basically I have no freaking idea how to do perspective. :( Any helpful tips or directions to tutorials?

I'm really aggravated right now on the limitations on my art. I wish I had a larger grasp on better media. All I can use half-way decent is micron pens and prisma pencils. Even those I can't use that well. Ugh, I really don't even know where to start. I have all these big amazing ideas that I just can't get on paper. blah blah blah angst about art and such....

The chair surprisingly enough started out as a very proper victorian chair. I don't know what happened to it. :confused:

You tools may be limited but I think your ability is not!
I have a lot of pictures I can't get on paper because of perspective, too. I think it holds a lot of us back. :D

Quite the sophisticated, evil gathering you’ve portrayed there. Complete with top-hat, feet-cuffs, those cigarette ‘extenders’, and of course plenty of tea held in the proper manner. Pinky toe out for etiquette of course.

The design of the chair is most fashionably evil in its appearance, as you’ve crafted it so stylishly with the stretched skin interior and a lovely sewed muscle exterior. The hooves were most notably a great touch for being, quite literally, the legs of the chair. Now as for the characters, I have to say without a doubt that Mr. Francois' langur is quite the comically, wicked primate there. His delightfully crazed look, and Don King ‘do, complete with his excessive sideburns, is merely too much for me not to express a mannerly chortle. Leif on the other hand, seems to emulate the suitably ‘gentleman’ look quite well (at least in the way he holds his tea cup) despite his possibly malevolent self. Though I have yet to learn more of your characters before I really say anything of their repute.

In all, I feel you did a rather smashing job for the concept. Though I can’t be of much help in the tips department, I do hope that the final product turns out exactly how you want it to. :)

I have to give you props for drawing of all things monkies, indeed. You are the most spot on person i know when it comes to the anatomy of creatures outside of one's comfort zone.
I stared at it forever, trying to think of some perspective advice to give you and realized that the chair was made of muscle. Then I thought, you definately love those microns and are a nut for detail (you weren't kidding that one time, were you?). And then this crazy person kept IM'ing me and I kept losing track of my comment-in-progress. Finally, I got to where I could finish it and I looked back at the picture once again and realized that not only was the chair made of muscle, but the legs were that of a horse, indeed.

Very interesting, I do say *puffs pipe* <-- your novel for the day

Microns are love. I don't know if you've ever given them a whirl, but I highly suggest you do so.
I love novels, :)

I have actually, just black though, never played with pretty colors or sizes. I really like the faber-castells too. they make neato brush pens. I have a set of brush pens in a series of greys, which are uber fun.

Okay, see, now I'm the one all worried about leaving an idiotic comment on YOUR work. I am always in awe of the detail you put into your drawings, and always at a loss for words, but then you go and draw something this brilliant for me, and I lose what ever little intellect I had left. Soooo...

I LOVE this! Everything about it! It's demented, disturbing, hilarious and just plain wonderful. The chair is perfect for the Langur, and hot damn, I adore the fact that King Crow is holding the Langur's tophat. And and and... Leif... :heart: Nice underpants! I love Leif. What is it with me and monkeys?! Cripes, I just looked at the chair again--I want to have it in real life! It's so damn beautiful and creepy.

Like Autumn said, even for concept art, this is AWESOME.

I have the same trouble, by the way, with having ideas and not being able to quite get them down on paper. It's maddening. Perspective is tough to master, but getting the basics down is relatively easy. I think you've got a pretty good understanding of it already, but it's great to see you wanting to learn more. That is very cool.

Let's run off to Vegas together and get hitched. A thousand times.

I love monkies! Something about their close resemblance to humans both creeps me out and amuses me at the same time.

I know the very, very basics of the basics of perspective. I had an art teacher mention it to me once over a year ago, so I would really like to take those basics and expand them. What I'm really looking to do is apply the rules of perspective to anatomy, because I'd really like to start drawing more dynamic poses. And as far as detail goes, I really think it can only go so far, as I tend to concentrate on one area and forget about the 'big picture'. I suppose that all goes back to my desire to draw perspective because I feel like I can draw a character decently enough, but I just can't DO anything with it.
woah, just wrote you a novella.

I am all for Vegas. Let's tell Davey that we're going there to win him lots of money so he won't suspect anything.

I would so buy that chair if I saw it in a furniture store. I'd put it in the cheeriest spot in the house and there would be instant happiness all around.

*pauses weirdness* I know what you mean about having ideas and not being able to put them on paper. Even for concept art, it's awesome. I love your pen work and the limited colour in this.

The only thing that could make that chair better would be a bunch of my little ponies taped to it. :)
If I find that chair, I will be sure to send it to you.

Now, I haven’t actually read this because I’m on dial up and don’t want to wait 50 years just to find out I already know most of it, but it may be what you’re looking for. I know the feeling of not being able to get ideas on paper and it can be very frustrating and crippling.

Thank you! This will help a lot, as I never really learned perspective.
