Robert Lawrence

I improved my digital perspective drawing skills a lot. I learned how to plan out a perspective drawing in thumbnail form before spending a ton of time doing the final drawing.

Ahmed Atieh

I used to believe that perspective was super complicated, but Robert did an AMAZING job of breaking everything down and simplifying it to the point where I now look back and am appalled that I every found perspective so complicated. I absolutely loved every single second of this course.

Marcus Soh

With the introduction of the basic rules of perspective, I’m able to comprehend and apply them into the assignments of the course.
