:D If you can check out Rapid Viz by Hanks & Belliston. It is an old book but you may find one used on amazon.

I personally don't recommend spending the money on Rapid Viz. It's not expensive, but I find a lot of it borrowed from other sources.

You can get a good bit of the tutorials from drawthrough.com actually. Well, perspective is the most important thing you need to grasp. If there is a perspective class in your school, take it and make sure you put in lots of effort into it. BE patient, it may be boring but you won't regard it.

I didn't know much about drawing and I found Rapid Viz to be helpful. Plus it was pretty cheap.

Yo, have you used/referenced any of the Gnomon books/DVDS? Any insight into which you think would be most useful to beginners?

Anyone know where you can pick this book up cheap (like the original price $40-$50)? Everywhere I look it's like $350+, due to the fact that it is no longer in print.

DesignStudioPress all the way! I took a six week course from Scott R a couple years ago and was blown away. You may not like his subject matter, but his skills are absolutely AMAZING! Any of his dvd's from gnomom would be worth it. If your not into dvds, wait until his book, "how to draw vehicles" is out. He was working on it when I took his course and should be worth the wait.

try robertson's book...drawing cars the hot wheels way. It goes through a lot of the stuff in his dvds...the whole draw through method. Also has a very good section on why/how cars reflect light.

Hey,

Shimizu's most recent book, New Marker Technique, is still available from Amazon, for $45. I bought it directly at Art Center, for a much more reasonable $25, but I doubt they do orders.

If you're really interested, I could be talked into a) seeing if it's still there, and b) getting it and sending it your way.

Get back to me if you're interested...

Swimcerely,

Matt

I ordered Shimizu's New Marker Techniques from Amazon and waited about 4 months before they cancelled the order because they were unable to obtain a copy of the book.

just a warning, I'm still looking for a copy.

I read this book some time back:

"How to draw cars like a pro"
- It does contain some basics regarding perspective generally and with refernce to automobile design also

Some more interesting works include "Art of Star wars" where in more futuristic wars are drawn and painted on paper. truly inspirational work.

Basic perspective principles have also been cleared up by author "Robert.W. Gill" (i guess I spelled it right..!) in his Sketching books and journals
