PERSPECTIVEThis is probably the only thing I might say i'm pretty good. But it not because I'm "talented", i just looked at stuff a lot. I find a lot of beginners have the same issue, where they can draw simple shapes because of a tutorial but when asked to think differently, they can't. Because we weren't told hello, "perspective" is all around us.
With modern building and manufacturing, everyone probably lives in a place full of walls, books, computers, paper, etc. so many STRAIGHT LINES you can easily manipulate and look at. Learn how to see the way perspective changes things, then learn to look around you and see the same things happen, draw it, draw it some more.
Tutorials that show diagrams for how to make things with vanishing points are helpful, but not if you can't use your brain to see WHY things happen like that. I hope this tutorial will just push you to really ENGAGE with why things are like this, that's all~
Almost all perspective tutorials past this point are about the same so i don't have one to recommend, just keep an eye out and don't reduce your art to simple lines.
Edit: there have been some requests for vanishing point tutorials, I feel it's been done many times (and very well) so if you want to move ahead with your new found perspective(LOL PUNS) try these:
BASIC: [link] (please remember not to over rely on connecting lines, remember to observe around you!)
Due to demand i made a continuation of this to ease you into the above links more easily:

no, but this was a great tutorial: fun, easy to understand and helpful, thank you!
Good way to drill it into people's heads.
Thank you very much for this tutorial! I needed to understand perspective a little more before I got to drawing it, and this was perfect. Also amusing at the same time xD
