at the sunset by Black-sania at the sunset by Black-sania
so, I was looking today at :iconfox-orian: tutorial about perspective and how to be better.

(here is the link [link] )

Is not the first time I look at it. Basically I use it most of the time, but I have never being able to understand it that well. Not like fox-orian does hahaha. But to make the story short, I saw that most of the tips is too look at your sorroundings, and learn from there.

There is nothing wrong at using references to understand the nature of shadows, highlights and dimensions, so I decided to climb into my bed and take a picture of my room. Now my room is super messy and I left behind tons of details and other furniture. Also I clean it up and changed few things. For example the window is on the other side of the room lol and is not that nice but I do like to sit and look trough that window.

Also I have more books than that. I got two other shells full of mangas (last time I counted: 600+)

so yeah, I'm happy with the result (hell yeah I am) and I do hope I keep improving.


extra note: I have no idea if I should paint this? like full of colors or just leave it like this. I mean I wanted full color but I spent part of yesterday and today finishing lines, details, shadows and lights. ggrrr I hate when I don't have more time

damn you 24 hrs!!!

Hey not bad. You got a lot right here -- the perspective follows 3 points rather accurately (outside of a few anomalies, but hey, that's acceptable -- even my work has them.)
Here's a recommendation for future pieces: you don't have to draw all the floor boards in an image like this. Repeating textures like that don't need to be 100% drawn out. You'll find that they end up being too visually demanding with such dense detail compared to the rest of the scene, so you'll need to remove some of that detail to match.

Note in this sketch I did, you don't see all of the boards on the deck parts, but you know they're wood based on the bits you DO see. (This sketch is a bit more of an extreme example. Ideally you'd want a LITTLE more detail than this, but you get the idea.)

More detail would inevitably come in a coloring stage.

well first of all. I find this kind of an honor you got to see this piece of mine. Most of the time I feel like a ghost around here haha. But anyways, I will definitely consider more your tips and I really wasn't sure either about the floor boards. It was quite exhausting I must say.

I have seen that sketch and I have seen all your gallery, but I was trying not to copy too much from yours or other stuff, I was looking more to what I have rather than that. Although, I see your point about the idea of not making every single piece. Either way, thanks again for the comment ;___; I really really appreciate it a lot.
