Perspective is incredibly important. It's also a subject that many artists avoid because it seems very stiff and technical. I created Perspective Sketching to teach the subject in a different way: freehand sketching. In my experience this approach to perspective changes it from deliberate and stuffy into a natural part of drawing. Though Photoshop is featured in the videos, all of the skills apply to traditional media or any other graphics software.
