After a few years slowly learning how to draw characters it was time to start improving my scenes including backgrounds.
It feels a bit nerdy getting the set square and compass out but, by following the text and simple exercises, it shows how good results can come from a simple process. It is a bit painstaking to create an entire scene but that's no fault of the book.
It covers more than I think I'll need : 1,2,3,4,5 point perspective plus gems such as 'Putting it all together' and 'Tricks and Troubleshooting'.
If you like more visually exciting books then be aware there is a lot of wireframe with just a few full fleshed out drawings. It is quite 'mathematical' but the clarity and results are superb.
