    Thanks for the input. I've heard Uncomfortable say that it's okay to use a guide, so long as you'd always have it. So you can use a pen to aim toward an imaginary VP if that helps. I think the key though is like you've said, not to focus on the definite VP like that's the point. I do think the point is to develp intuitive understanding of how the boxes should look.

    Also someone else shared this video. I think it’s really helpful way of looking at it. After using her mothed I an see improvements on my boxes.

    Yeah knowing what to do intuitively definitely makes you feel like you’ve learned something. I appreciate the input.

    Thanks for sharing this video, it was VERY helpful. I used her method and while I've still got some work to do, my convergences have been the best they’ve been without using VP or ruler. Have a great day!

    Hey, thanks for the very thorough critique! I much appreciate it especially right before your vacation. I hope you’re actually off to it by now lol.

    I had actually started 250 box challenge so I will continue with that. I’m right around box #80, and still have a hard time matching those vanishing points. I’ve experimented with rulers and while that did improve the accuracy significantly, I didn’t help with my understanding. So back to how this exercise was meant to be done – freehand and doing my best to increase my estimation.

    Thanks again, and I look forward to completing 250 boxes and moving on to the next lesson!

Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Despite their age, Marshall Vandruff's videos on Linear Perspective are some of the best lectures on all the ins and outs of perspective, and as an instructor, he is highly respected across the board. He goes into a lot of the intricacies that I don't touch on in much depth (at least, not if I can help it).

On top of being some of the best, his lectures are also among the most accessible, at the full 8 hour set for $12.00. There's literally no reason not to grab them.
