THREE POINT PERSPECTIVE DRAWING LESSONS : How to Draw in 3 Pt Perspective
In this "Drawing Tip of the Week" Matt will show you how to draw a simple cityscape in three point perspective. Matt has in depth perspective tutorials for members of DTO. In this drawing tip of the week, Matt will will explain and demonstrate how to draw a simple cityscape using three point perspective. He will go over some pointers on how to approach this type of perspective.
You can see 3 point perspective at work when you look at a picture of a tall building taken from near the base. In this situation, not only do you have the regular 2 point perspective, but the vertical sides of the building seem to draw together toward the top. They are pointing to a third vanishing point.
Creating an object using a 3 point perspective is not as difficult as it might seem! You just need to draw the right lines at the right place and make sure that everything is accurate. Most of the objects that you will see in the real world are displayed with a three point perspective. So it's important to understand how to use this technique in your drawings!
Three-point perspective is probably the most challenging of all. In three point perspective, every right-angle line in the drawing will eventually converge on one of three perspective points. This can look distorted if the vanishing points are two close together, but if they are far enough apart, three-point perspective is the most accurate way of drawing the world around you in three dimensions.
Three point perspective is probably the most challenging of all. In three-point perspective every line will eventually converge on one of three points. Three-point perspective is the most dramatic of all and can often be seen in comic books when the hero is flying over buildings or whooping butt in the alley below as the buildings tower above.
At this point it's customary to explore the capabilities of 2PP in a variety of specific drawing problems. I want to keep the momentum and look at three point perspective, which allows you to construct a form in any orientation (from any viewpoint).
n this tutorial, I’ll cover how to use Illustrator to set up perspective drawings, and help you choose the best way to approach your new perspective drawing projects. We’ll review some theory and then work through examples of working with 1-point, 2-point, and 3-point Perspective.
