In the lecture the other day I was really drawn to Jon Keegan's sketchbooks. His drawings of people have their own unique style but yet they are still accurate and he utilises perspective to help him create convincing faces61_yanks_650.jpg

Here his use of 1 point perspective and a low horizon line tells us (even without looking at the young boy in the foreground) that this is a small person looking up and out across the pitch. This reflects the age/height and attitude of the young boy, as he is literally looking up to the players.keegan_july07_selects.jpg

I love the expression in his characters' faces, and you can quite clearly see the technical underdrawing which makes them look more realistic and in proportion.

Here Keegan uses a range of 1 and 2 point perspective to draw buildings from a trip to Europe.
