Drawing Trains in One Point Perspective with Easy Step by Step Tutorial


Page : 1 2 3

Step 3

Now draw a line, with a ruler or straight edge surface, from the vanishing point out into the distance. See the picture above.

Step 4

Now draw another line, a bit to the left (for the railroad tracks).

Step 5

Now we will start drawing the locomotive train. Take a ruler straight across (horizontally and put a point on each track…now draw a vertical line (a line up and down) from each track, as seen above.

Step 6

Now draw a horizontal line, with a rule, from the top of both lines and the bottom of both lines (as seen above).

Step 7

Notice, that I lightened the railroad track lines…I only did this so you don’t confuse them with the lines that we are about to draw for the train. Now draw a line from the top left of the train to the vanishing point and darken the bottom line (as I did above).

Step 8

Now draw a circle in the rectangle that you have created, and draw a straight, horizontal, line below the circle.

Step 9

Now fine the middle of the horizontal line that you just drew. Then Draw a line from this point to the bottom-left hand side of the train. Then draw bring both of these points to a triangle point.

Step 10

Now do the same thing on the other side.

Step 11

Now draw vertical lines with a ruler that get closer together as they get further down the train (except for the first 2 lines).

    Wow! You are a great teacher! I needed this for a gift for a little boy who loves trains and was so well mannered at a recent bible study. I drew this on a rock for him with his name and would have never been able to do this without your directions! Thank you so much!

    This is one of the best websites I have encountered. I am a very creative person. I have been sharing and selling my artistic skills, but I seemed to be lost when it comes to charging and building a career or business. Your website is what I have been seeking. I am so glad that I found you. I will certainly share this site with my friends and associates.
