Create perspective by warping your textures in Photoshop

I’m a firm believer that you shouldn’t purely rely on software to do the work for you. A good artist should be able to understand and construct the basic principles of drawing, including perspective. However, there are some useful Photoshop plug-ins and tools available that can help speed up the process. 

Among some of the more useful tools I’ve found, the Perspective Tools v2 for Photoshop CC-CC2015 purchasable extension has proven to be valuable. It helps to easily create perspective and parallel grids in seconds. Mainly using the Pen Tool, the user can draw a couple of lines, click the Grids button and the extension works out perspective grids instantly. Perspective Tools v2 also offers a variety of additional features, including the ability to bend and warp textures perfectly to any perspective grids you may need.
