Time to prepare for this tutorial: 1 year
Time to make the tutorial: 6 hours
Purpose of the tutorial: To help beginners who already studied basic perspective, yet struggle with drawing perspectives to get a start in apply it.

I feel quite accomplished being able to finish this tutorial now. I promised this since last year, it was a challenge to even start to make it.
Honestly, I don't feel I am good at perspective, but it seems like I am good enough to teach some basics.

There are plenty of tutorials on perspectives out there, but not everyone can apply the technquies after they learn them.
I hope this tutorial will help out the majority of the artists who started drawing with characters first like I am.

Other recommanded tutorials: From easy to hard

How to place an already drawn character in the field of perspective set up, using what you have drawn on the character to find the right place to set Horizon line for one point perspective.

I have a question. What if I say there are people who have inborn talents like they can draw something but doesn't use these techniques. They seem to have this 'eye' and make awesome drawings with perspectives. Err, not sure though but I know some who are qualified. Don't bother answering this question if you find it too dumb XD
