One Point Perspective - Advanced Drawing by FionaCreates One Point Perspective - Advanced Drawing by FionaCreates
Say hello to my super long, One Point Perspective tutorial. As requested. I hope it makes SOME sense at least. And yes it's full of spelling mistakes, I'm lame like that.

This is an Advanced Drawing tutorial, so if you don't get it, don't panic. Just try it out one step at a time. Start with simple things like the boxes, and perhaps try drawing a lone object or two in perspective (it helps to have something in front of you like a mug or even your computer to copy) and build up to a whole illustration over time :D

The Perspective Lines used in this tutorial can be downloaded from here...

I made it while working on my sci fi illustration and realising all I'd really made was decorated boxes that now look like buildings XD

You're very welcome. I like to write tutorials that enable people to use the techniques in their own art, instead of "follow these steps and you'll get a chair.. but then you'll only ever be able to draw the chair in this one angle..."

Writing a how to draw book would probably be a lot of me rambling "look at shit.. and draw it.. and if it sucks, first pat yourself on the back cos you drew a thing, then look at shit some more and figure out why your drawing sucks.. and draw it again."

That's it. That's the secret to life the universe and everything. Even when it sucks celebrate having done something. Then work out how to make it not suck.

Many perspective tutorials say "draw lines, fit object in lines, VOILA PERSPECTIVE!" They don't go into enough detail. I might have been a bit repetitive, but with learning repetition is key.

I have always found perspective fairly easy but tutorials make it look like magic, not something easy. I find the minute you start breaking stuff down into boxes, the easiest of all things to draw in perspective) it becomes very easy. Even the fanciest of pieces of furniture I start with a box first.

Yes and that's why I was was so confuzled.

I actually never thought of breaking it down into boxes.... Sweat Drop revamp
Thank you! Just breaking down alone will help me a lot! :D

Yes, since boxes are easiest to draw if you get them right you can then add the curves and such marvelously easily.

This is incredibly timely! I was just thinking how I need to sit myself down and really learn perspective, it's a big aspect of my drawing that I need to improve upon.
I can't wait to read what you've written and put it to good use. Woo! :D

perspective is pretty easy if you just follow the "rules" of perspective as opposed to just making it up.

I'm always shocked at how easy perspective is when I start to build a scene. How easy and how impressive it looks.

What's often not easy is getting your head round it in the first place. The first perspective drawing I did I would have been 8 years old but because of the way my mind works I've never found it hard, I've just been too lazy to bother. That's why I made the guides so I don't even have to draw perspective lines first.. cos I'm lazy.
