I don't think it will matter for that purpose if that's what you want to do. I think many people may start out with this idea of the work being precious but it really isn't. It's the process and brain changes that are the reward.

Good luck whatever you choose. It is hard work but the benefit is huge.

I really appreciate you giving feedback so quickly! I'm looking forward to getting into the lessons and seeing my improvements over time. I'm a software developer by trade but the idea of signing off of computers and drawing for hours sounds so relaxing. Of course I'm really new and can't draw much of anything well yet, but I hope to develop my skills over time.

You aren't forced to use copy paper, just keep in mind that you're going to do hundreds of pages throughout drawabox, so you're gonna need a ton of these sketchbooks. Most of the work you're gonna be doing is also the warmups you'll have to do before every session, which normally use 1 page or so.

If you also take sketchbooks make sure it's at least A4 size, don't go for anything smaller

Great point on the warm-ups! I'll probably opt for cheaper paper for the really repetitive things...which come to think of it could potentially be the entire course, I guess. Thank you for responding!

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.
