do need a architectural degree to be able to draw something like this ?
Heres the link to the image that im referring to
Recently, i came across this picture on the net and i have been greatly inspired by it . i want to be able to draw like this in the future .It looks super detailed .Judging by the incomplete part of the drawing it looks as if a lot of architectural knowledge was involved in its creation .Well im a super rookie so correct me if im wrong .but you cant deny the fact that it has a lot of precision involved.
I want to know whether only those with an architectural background/degree can draw Gothic architecture like this one here .Or is it possible even for a person who has no such background/degree but has spent a lot of time and effort into perfecting this kind of drawing using the principles taught to us in books like perspective and stuff i.e through self study? Because that is what i plan on doing. I really would appreciate any opinion on my decision.
oh...and here are the two books that i considered referring they are called....
Gwen White - Perspective - A Guide for Artists, Architects and Designers
