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 ^ ^



Point Perspective Overview

Tutorial I

Tutorial II



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. :)

Hi, Your link is excellent. I fear though that I did not word my question very well. I don't know if this will make any sense either. If I draw say a one point perspective and divide it, where the lines intersect,(on the 'floor';) could I draw a faint line straight up from them to and create a usable grid? Or would that be just extra work and unmanable lines?

Depending on the size, drawing lines upwards from each intersection would make too many lines to deal with...

[link] something like that, with the lines only on the sides, is a lot clearer...

Wow! Thank you for that! I have been trying to teach myself perspective. I guess I have the bones down-somewhat...I have Chelseas book, a couple of Norlings. Some other good ones too. I have drawn a couple of things, sad examples I suspect. Now, I am thinking about another demon for most-the human figure in perspective and that dreaded word...FORESHORTENING! Talk about a can of worms. :( I should stop thinking-I would be happier then-lol!

All I'm doing is showing how to make grids ;)

Foreshortening is the devil's work! haha, I guess a way to do it, would be to draw boxes and then out in the objects you want to shorten...

Never stop thinking! the only way to advance :D

I'm glad I can help! Once you've the basics down, then you can start having some fun with it... all about getting it in the first place though ;)

BTW, are you drawing using the Pen Tool, Brush? What?
Reply
:iconhmspeedfreek:
HMSpeedFreek Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2007
i just use the line tool in illustrator...so yea, something like the pen tool, although it can be done very well, maybe even better, done in 'real' media, like pen/pencil.

Oooh, this is terrific. I need to learn how to do stuff like this. I will give this a try when I'm feeling ambitious.

Cool, I've a slightly different approach but I find it interesting to see how others work with perspective. There are so many ways to find the horizon ;)
Reply
:iconhmspeedfreek:
HMSpeedFreek Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2007
its not so much the horizone you need to be worried about, its the second point W thats the critical thing in this tutorial, get it right on the horizon at the 45 and it should work pretty well...

Heh, by observing how others work you open yourself for new ideas, hence broaden your horizon (or new ways to find it).

ahhh...is that what you meant about the horizon?...i thought you were talking about the hoeizon line...
