This is my actual job. I work drawing perspectives of spaces to be build(and many times designing and take decisions on what I will draw). I studied fine arts and at this very moment I am working to create my own 2d animation enterprise. I have work in many other fields as well but to this date, I have a full time job in an architecture studio.
As much as I hated my job originally, I have grown fond to it. No to the furniture which I would never have in my own house but to the challenge of doing a good picture out of it. Warping perspective or faking lights in order to make a better shot. Rendering with pencil or painting them with Photoshop and Corel or others. Since it is classic furniture, 3d play no game here because it will be too much trouble to model all the furniture, therefore, it has to be done by hand.
At first I was very slow with the perspectives but now I have gained come speed. I would like to share share my knowledge to this community. I can provide some help if someone needs critic or reference of columns, classic furniture, types of fabrics, floors, carpets, to name a few.
I hope you like all this or at least, be usefull in some way.

Here I was aiming to distort point perspective as if the lens were opening from closure. This was all done with pencils, pen and retouched with photoshop and painter. Hope you enjoy it.
This one was hard because there were a large area in the center of the room with nothing on it.
At fist I did all the perspectives within the perspective plane. But it always looked far away, I could not show the detail of the furniture nor the shot was impressive. So I started to work the perspective inside the room, even if this means not to show a good part of the furniture.
Good example of the old way I used to scheme my perspectives.
This one is one of the few colored perspective I post for the moment. I do not fell very well with the results in general. It is hard to invent the light of the shot and at the same time, show the furniture in an interesting way.
This is a more clean result all done in Photoshop with the wacom airbrush. It was done previously(a year ago) from my first post.
thanks, I have to say this, the furniture looks better in real. Stronger, fine materials, confortness are a few words which come to mind when you see them, in real.
By the way I have seen your wonderfull pictures and you got a awsome light going on your way. But I do not see people. I could not agree with you more about the real experience of going out and be with nature. But I also believe that being alone with nature is another kind of concealmente, a good one. But still a safe place nonetheless. I suggest you go to the circus and paint an acrobat, the construction site with a heavy weight maching and his driver,or any kind of human moving in groups. This are strong signs of our era. You shouldnt miss that. Outside what one know there are places in which we are not experts and because of that we do not go there. I hope it this is not your case.
