  1. Hello Proko, hello Marshall.

    Thanks a lot for the podcasts. I like to listen to them on my commute.

    In general, i just enjoy and take your advice.

    However, on the perspective one, I would like to provide some feedback on the resource proposed. I bought Watson’s book back in 2001 – i am not sure which artist recommended it, but it was ‘the book to learn from’…well i tried, and tried and tried and it did not click.The book itself is a reminder for the educated, as the author seems to have written the 75% knowledge down and mixing it up with analyzing professional illustrations before concepts are completely explained and through exercises understood.Also, the amount of text compared to explanation diagrams is not optimal.
    The biggest flaw in terms of enabling a student (after having studied and still studying perspective resources of all, mostly bad, kind) is that there is no explanation of the connection between Station Point, COV and the resulting vanishing points. When these concepts are clearly explained and understood the complexity of the book can be mastered…But I still think the writing is cumbersome and there are better books to learn from (all the others on the list…).

    In general, I think the world needs a GOOD perspective course as good and reliable information on youtube is sparse and needs to be discovered in a painful process…If you just patch it all together and make it concise then you already have a winner.
