All points of view are different, especially in art. Each person is different from the other, we all look in a different way, we all think differently. Everyone expresses themselves in their own way and we can express ourselves by making art. We can have different points of view of the same situation.
Welcome my dear friends, I hope you are well. I still have a little cough, but everything is excellent. I have rested and eaten well.

Perspective is a term that we can relate to art. When we talk about perspective we relate it to painting, where objects are drawn as they are in the real world, or so we try to do. It is our point of view, but not everything is perfect, even though we use perspective we can give "wrong sizes to objects", but because we want to do it that way or it is simply a mistake we make as novices.
I have been studying perspectives to make my drawings better. For a long time I have only drawn characters, not landscapes. When I do landscapes my imagination runs out very fast and there are many things that I don't understand how to do. In Blender I can do them, it's a very good 3d program and easy to use, so I have no problems, but when I try to transfer that to 2d, my brain fails a little hahaha, so I've started to study my weakness and learn new techniques.
I usually draw in digital, it's more "simple", if you make a mistake it's easier to fix. When we draw with pencil and make a lot of mistakes, the drawing can get messy, and we don't want that... There is no way to hit "Ctrl Z" in the real world.
I could have studied digital perspectives, but I preferred to use pencil and paper. I hadn't drawn that way for a long time, so I had a hard time. I know the drawings are not the best, but I tried very hard. I watched a lot of videos and a lot of drawings so I could try to make some "presentable" drawings.
Right now I am only studying single point perspective. Most of the drawings I saw had train tracks in them, so I guess this type of perspective is used to create that kind of scenery. Scenarios where the track, the road or the rails of a train are disappearing in the horizon.
Related to this single point perspective, I also saw a lot of drawings of mountains, that is, the track or rails of the train culminates or disappears from our view and reaches the bottom of a mountain.
I am not saying that all drawings are like this or that it is a rule, but these were the drawings I saw the most. Of all the drawings I saw, most contained either train tracks or mountains, or even both. In my first two drawings I did that because I thought it was the most normal thing to do.
The first drawing, I did along with a video explaining single point perspectives. I only changed some things from the original drawing, I didn't put the same details that the person did in the video. The following drawings were images that I saw on the internet, where I did change several things, I only used those images as guides to not make many mistakes, however, as it is only a practice and I had years without doing exercises of this type, it cost me a lot and I had many mistakes. However, I feel that I made a lot of progress in just one day, maybe if I had started yesterday to make these drawings without having seen several images or tutorials, I would have made a mess.
I repeat again, it has only been a practice, something I had not done for years, I know they are not the best drawings, but I did them with a lot of effort. I want to keep improving to make better quality drawings. I only used a pencil that I had at hand and a recyclable sheet, that's why there are not many details or good shadows, I only concentrated on the perspective. I hope you like my practice drawings and that you are encouraged to do new things that you have always wanted to do, but have not been able to. Find a little space of time to try those things, like learning a new language, reading a book you like. We must start little by little the things that we find difficult to do, we can not pretend to do excellently something we have never done, everything is achieved with practice and patience. I wanted to share this with you, so I tried to do my best.
Thanks friend for making it to the end of my article, I hope you had a good time and learned something, or laughed at my perspectives hahaha I hope not, I had a hard time, I know they are not the best, but I will get better with time. If you know anything about drawing and perspectives I would really appreciate your comment and support. If you don't know anything about this subject, I will also appreciate your message about if you like or not my pencil drawings.

There are people who look for perfection in drawings, but remember they are drawings, they are not photographs, as well as drawings there are paintings, who is going to criticize Cruz Diez because a line is not straight, or Picasso because he does not like color. The decision is up to each artist. Of course you have to learn to do the details well, and then do the doodles and earn very well with that.
