The Linear or Mathematical Perspective System created by Brunelleschi was a great Breakthrough to represent the reality with accuracy. Perspective is a great structure builder in any art form. The mathematical Perspective allows you to give the illusion of deep and space with actual real dimensions. Let’s say you have a room 3mx3m. Using the mathematical perspective method you can actually draw the 3mx3m space with accuracy. It’s described as a “Technique of depicting volumes and spatial relationships on a flat surface”. As you can see, perspective has everything to do with Proportions: The Scale and Location of an element in space. The Perspective is the tool that allows you to create the right proportion between elements in your piece and mastering perspective is vital to any Comic Book Artist.
