CHAPTER 18 Working with Perspective

The property of visual perspective was first documented by Leonardo da Vinci and used in his technical drawings to give an accurate sense of depth to his 2D (two-dimensional) pieces. Perspective in drawings can be calculated today by CorelDRAW and other applications, and this chapter takes you through a definition of perspective, how to use CorelDRAW’s perspective effect, and how to feature the artistic quality of perspective in your work to produce lifelike illustrations. If you want your audience to be drawn into your work and not simply to stare at it, consider adding some perspective…so your audience will see it, too!
