Here's a good example of the difference solid perspective makes when incorporated into a composition. Lauren Finn is a 13 year old student enrolled in the Academy's Teen Program. Below are three recent samples of her work. Click on the image for a better view.
In sample A, Lauren attempted to create a background without much attention to proper perspective. Robert Gold, our instructor in this regard, helped Lauren by getting her to focus on one element within her compostion. A half-pipe skateboard ramp you can see on the right in sample A. In sample B, Lauren established a two point perspective grid to construct the half-pipe ramp. In sample, C, Lauren uses what she learned from this exercise to establish a perspective foundation in this sketch from a story she's developing whereby her main character wakes up one morning to realize that his legs are twice as long as what they were before he went to bed.
For a 13 year old, Lauren shows exceptional comprehension of perspective basics. We're looking forward to exciting things from this young lady in the future.
