Hi, zilliah. See this Free Perspective Path Tool post and also check out Vanishing Point “filter” in Photoshop.
You can use this in Photoshop to help you with composition perspective. The video can walk you through if you need it. It is extremely simple and straightforward and over time you may find your ability to draw perspective without the tool improve.

The Brushes (Tutorial Part 2)
Hard Round 25 Fading
Take your normal hard brush, make it 25px large. Now go to the Brushes menu and click “Other Dynamics”, and set the Flow jitter to Pen Pressure in the drop down menu.
Hard Round 5 pixels
This is your basic, default hard brush when you load up Photoshop with the regular brushes it should be right at the top… no need to change it!
Load up default Photoshop brushes and scroll down til you see the soft brushes—- pick one that is at least 60px large. Open the Brushes menu and click “Shape Dynamics” and set it to Pen Pressure, then click “Other Dynamics” and have the Opacity and Flow jitters set to Pen Pressure as well.
Tips For Custom Sullivan Fur Brushes
- these are easiest to use when highlighting, try picking a color that is lighter than the area you are drawing on.
- the brushes are pressure sensitive, so you’ll want to use these with a tablet. try drawing lightly for softer fur, and push harder for more tufty fur.
- just scribbling one of these over your drawing will make it look dumb, trust me. try layering the different brushes, or going over with your own brushes to add in your own details for a more realistic look.
- try playing around in the Brushes menu… color effects can look really neat with these, see what works for you :]
- you may NOT attempt to resell or redistribute these brushes; if you want to share these brushes with others just link back to the original deviantART post.
- please give credit when you use these! i’m not normally fussy about giving credit, but i worked hard on these so it would be appreciated.
Photoshop brush settings to imitate the style of Copic markers. There’s a bit more info at the source…
Women’s shoes say a lot about their sense of style on any given day. This is a good reference for the basic shape of many kinds of shoes which may be needed for drawing various women. Do not rely too heavily on the labels, as they are not necessarily accurate in light of the ever-evolving nature of fashion vocabulary.
The most commonly seen collars in formal men’s clothing are the Henley and the Ascot, but most of these collars are still common throughout men’s fashion. When drawing shirt collars, be aware of how the stiffness of the fabric will affect the way the lapels fold against the clavicles and shoulders and any other clothing present, such as a suit jacket.
A photoset to use as reference for various handguns and the way most hands hold them.
At some point in the future, I need to put together a reference for PROPER professional posture in wielding guns, as pros and people trained properly in how to use firearms do not hold them the way others do or the way most photos show people to hold them.
