I had to experiment a lot before getting it ( I think ). It's easier to try a lot of examples and see what looks right.

Break it down to the simplest example.

Draw a plane in space like in the earlier exercise. Draw a line that goes over the the top of it. Now start inking from one end of the line until it looks like it has reached the the plane. Stop there. That is a basic step of the exercise.

I think it is something that you need to keep trying, evaluating, and eventually something clicks. Rewatch the example videos too.

PS I now remember that I created a couple of A4 sheets of shapes. I then printed out several copies of each. I practiced on these until I managed to get the hang of it. You really have to use your brain to visualise.

I had a go at the first one. I would advise you to keep it simple to start with, this one is very complicated.

And if you choose to swap the boxes around.

This is why the first line you decide on fixes which way the objects intersect.

Here is how I would do example 3 ( roughly ). Once you have establised the point where the edge meets the plane you then need to think how the two planes interact. How does one cat the other ( it has to be on the planes surface. ). Expect to see more angled lines not just right angles.

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
