Perspective Drawing - 3D Graph Paper - 19 Pages by mrcentipede Perspective Drawing - 3D Graph Paper - 19 Pages by mrcentipede
If you want to see other, free, unrestricted resources I've made, click here: [link]

This is a set of 19 different 3-point perspective 'grids', which are designed for measuring out complicated perspective drawings.

An example of a drawing using one of these images can be seen here: [link]

Here's another one: [link]
Same drawing with the grid visible: [link]

I made these myself, in Blender, from scratch. They are 2700x2700, with a variety of angles and focal-lengths. The preview doesn't do this zip-file justice, if I do say so myself.

If you are new to drawing with these, find a grid you want to draw over, set it as a separate layer and draw on another layer above it. Alternately, you can set the grid to "multiply" and draw on the layer under it.

I've seen this style of graph paper around, but not often, and not cheap. After reading David Chelsea's amazing book "Perspective For Comic Book Artists" I decided to try my hand at rendering a few of my own. I don't really know what I'm doing, but they came out pretty cool anyway.

The only restriction is that you cannot claim you created them. Other than that, go nuts.

Are these based on a 3d file, such as Google Sketchup?

I created the file myself in Blender, which is a 3D modeling program sorta like Sketchup. One of these days I'm going to redo the project in a way that I am more satisfied with. Once I do that, I'll consider releasing the file for download. 

For those who don't know, Blender is 100% free ( and very powerful, but not as easy to use as Sketchup. In addition to 3D modeling, it can also be used for professional quality animation ( and special effects ( and also as a game engine.

Thanks for the info. You inspired me to build my own in Sketchup! I'll have to check out Blender. Do you know of a program that can do curvilinear stuff?

I'm so glad I could be helpful! I'm curious to see what you come up with. I use Linux, which doesn't run Sketchup very well. Other than Blender (which runs in Windows and Mac) I'm probably not a good person to ask about software, for that reason. Blender can do some very odd things with focal lengths and such ( is a rejected example from this batch), so it might be able to handle fisheye and other curvilinear perspective tricks. I would check, but I had a hardware failure a few weeks ago, and haven't had a chance to reinstall Blender yet. Good luck.

I'm glad you made these.  They're a great idea.
