perspective tutorial II by HMSpeedFreek perspective tutorial II by HMSpeedFreek
Here we go on another whirlwind of adventure as we venture back into the mystic and fascinating world of perspective! this time its one point perspective we are looking at, and how to draw a good set of tiles...like in this one...somewhat similar, but a bit easier and you only have one vanishing point to worry about...if its unclear anywhere, please tell me so I can rectify it ^ ^

Single-Point Grid

Just what I was looking for! With this tute it took me five seconds to do what I've been trying to do for half an hour!

Could this be used a 1 point grid for drawing something other than tiles? What if you used vertical lines where the horizonal lines converge?

I think I understood what you meant... after re-reading I thought i completely missed your point

You can do exactly that by adding yet another vanishing point!

Because you want the vertical lines converging, the vanishing point can't be to either side, instead it's above the horizon line. Depending how far up you put the line, it changes how the objects change with distance.

So, with a vanishing point really close to the horizon, the edges will taper in quite dramatically, whereas when it's higher, they will go much steeper gradient, and eventually (as the height goes to infinity), the vertical lines will be parallel.

I'll put up an image showing the effects of all three different types of perspective... 1, 2 and 3. so you can see the differences between them visually, rather than written.

Thank you for the reply. I have been studying-trying to understand the basics of perspective for awhile. I mean I have books ect. Have tried drawing in perspective a couple of times. I think I did better at a 2 point perspective than a 1 point. Anyway, you tutorial is well written and even I can understand it. Thank you for posting it. I look forward to the update! Please drop me a line when you complete it. :)
