So I keep hearing about perspective rulers
In the manga “Flower of Life”, one of the characters is elated to find a perspective ruler in an art supply store. “Now I don’t have to tape sheets of paper end to end anymore!”
Google yields nothing, Jerry’s has nothing.
WHERE DO I BUY ONE OF THESE THINGS OR DID FUMI YOSHINAGA JUST MAKE IT UP TO BE CRUEL
edit: it wasn’t really shown well in the manga, just in a flat, rectangular box
edit2: thanks catharsisecho - it’s also called a “centrolinead”, and that yields more fruitful results. In fact, the first Google result is a blog post by James Gurney that has a scan of a disassembled model.
I’m going to try and make a jerry-rigged version this weekend. So tired of sticking vanishing points way off the end of the table.
eta3: thanks mo-khan - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYi8BwHrvPI - seeing it in action in this video made way more sense than reading the written instructions
Posemaniacs not doin' it for you?
Here are a couple gesture drawing sites that have various photo reference types that you can even toggle! They’re more real than what you get from the muscly figures on posemaniacs, although still not as great for use as real-life studies.
Warning: There’s nudity, but that shouldn’t be a problem.
