Draw Tip Tuesday: Foreshortening with Continual Line


Sketchbook Skool student Joanna asked us a question: How do you draw your feet from the perspective of looking down at them? Sketchbook Skool co-founder Koosje Koene has the answer in this week’s Draw Tip Tuesday.

In a previous Draw Tip Tuesday, Koosje covered foreshortening (a perspective trick) from the point of view of looking directly at an object. Now she shows you how to tackle a tricky perspective sketch—drawing something while looking down at it.

Yes, this could get very complex with vanishing points and other technical stuff that, while valid, can tend to be kind of…boring. (In case you haven’t noticed, that’s not what we’re about in this Skool!) So Koosje will show you her way of sketching a downward perspective, foreshortening, and using continual line. This is a fun way of drawing something that gets your brain looking for ways to draw without picking up the pen. It’s a bit like constructing your own maze! Give it a try, and show us the results by posting them in our private Facebook group.
