Perspective is a discipline often set aside when it comes to general art study, though it is necessary to master in order to produce any piece of art that is realistic. Framed Perspective 1 equips artists with the technical knowledge needed to produce successful visual storytelling-related drawings: from understanding the basics, including line of sight and the horizon plane, to more sophisticated endeavors, such as producing shadows and reflections. As intimidating as perspective may seem, best-selling author and artist Marcos Mateu-Mestre delivers each lesson in an accessible and informative way that takes the mystery out of achieving successful scenes. The book includes extensive step-by-step practical explanations of how to build objects and environments of all sorts, taking that first sketch to a fully rendered artwork. Sure to be the most popular book in your art library, it will train you to see the world in a way that allows you to enjoy every curve and slope you see in the world and, more importantly, translate that vision into art with accuracy and a great sense of depth and proportion. Your perspective will never be the same!

Visual Storytelling with Color and Light teaches background and concept designers in animation and film the skills needed to create visually stunning and professionally appealing pieces. In the world today—where digital is considered king—traditional media and the skills attached to them are often overlooked.

Gouache is a technique that provides its artists and practitioners an understanding of color theory and composition that all studios are looking for and that a course in Photoshop cannot teach. Visual Storytelling with Color and Light offers behind-the-scenes secrets of standard-setting practices used by some of best that the animation industry has to offer. Michael Humphries provides step-by-step techniques that will help readers better understand color theory, composition, and lighting. He'll share common gouache techniques and then show readers how to develop their own style, and how to create a piece to match the studio exec's dictated styles. This book also displays practices to help take readers' paintings and backgrounds to the next level with Photoshop interventions and enhancements. To survive the trips to the studios, sets, and 'en plein air' locations, this book will have a hardback, layflat binding with a splash guard to protect the pages and cover from nature or the accidental artist. Most importantly this book will feature video demos for both the en plein air approach and photoshop enhancements.
