    No, I think the point that people are sort of making fun of you about is that you are in no position to teach or make people aware of anything.

    Honestly, I would wager there is not a single person on this forum that isn't AWARE that perspective is a necessary fundamental. I mean, you seriously come off like you just got out of perspective class (Remember people: HORIZON LINE!") and are just regurgitating it for people on the forum. A beginner will want a person that knows what they are talking about telling them how to improve, not someone who is right there with them.

    I'm not saying this to be rude at all, btw. I am saying this because I think you are seeing a lot of the experienced artists on the forum making helpful threads and you want to help, too. That is commendable, but the reason why those people ARE so helpful is because they have decades of experience under their belt. If someone really doesn't know what a horizon line is or isn't even aware that perspective is what they need to start incorporating into their work, they need to take a Jr. High art class, not come to CA.org (yet).

    The blind leading the blind. And in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king. But there are tons of people with two-eyes so you should probably ask them to help you out. People with one eye are still helpful, but they have no depth perception. Metaphorically speaking

    My good sir, I do believe I was simply suggesting that illustrations when paired with words are easier to follow, not that he can't teach. Now you on the other hand, are in fact, being rude. To insult someone for asking a question is as bad as telling them that since they don't draw exactly like you, they're wrong. So please, in the future, don't attack people for trying to help others, unless they're doing a complete 180° in their information they provide.

    "my good sir"?

    Maybe it was "rude", but it needed to be said. I stand by it.

    I've been really getting into my perspective drawing as its an area I so need to work on. I did think this thread would be full of advice I could instantly use but it seems like things have got a little heated in here. Anyway, there is no need to dwell.

    Is there anyone here who have images of examples they would like to share? Any other recommendations for good books or videos or anything?
