The lighting and expression on Cop Phoenix's face in the second panel is INTENSE. Here we go!

Sorry if this is an obvious question, I'm not an artist.

JB: do you already have in mind what you want to draw, and lay the perspective lines down first? Or do you draw something, then use perspective lines related to the first object?

Love that low-angle shot in the first panel.

Half the "challenge" (too strong a word) of using the perspective grid properly is picking the right horizon line. In the real world, the horizon is usually at eye level for the viewer (so it's actually different for everyone), but it's rare, in one of my panels, that the horizon is at the eye level of any of the characters. In today's first panel, for instance, the horizon is at ground level.

After the horizon line has been set, it's important to make sure all vanishing points are aligned with it, unless, for some reason, objects are actually twisted in space.

Just a quick aside question JB - I've seen you reference Rocky Horror now twice and wonder if this is a particular favorite of yours or just a cultural reference your familiar with?

I wouldn't go so far as to call ROCKY HORROR a "favorite". I've seen it maybe four times since its original release, none of them in a theater.

I do enjoy it, tho.

Thanks for sharing the "behind the scenes" details. To an analytical,  non artist , it's neat to get a perspective into all that goes into the finished page.
