Perspective. Lesson 1 (Author Elena Perelman)

According to Wikipedia, perspective (from Latin perspicere - to see through) is an approximate representation on a flat surface (such as paper or canvas) of an image as it is seen by the eye.

The first perspective rule: all parallel lines come to one point at the horizon line.

Let's see how it works. It is normal that the roof and the floor are parallel to each other. Look at the right wall. If you draw the bottom line, which goes along the road, and top line, which goes along the roof, you will see they meet at one point - focal point

perspective

Then draw the horizonal line that goes through the intersection of green lines. Now you have gotten the horizon line.

How it works?

For example, you need to make a short sketch for a lanscape with road. Start with horizon line...

Persvective

continue with road boarders...

Persvective

then make the lane line in yellow...

Persvective

devide the lane line into broken lines...

Persvective

then finish the lane lines...

Add some details and you are done!

At this moment the most important thing for you is how to start. How to draw poles and other objects applying the perspective rules you will learn later.
