Perspective

14Apr10

Perspective, usually used when drawing or recreating a scene, helps to make the image have more depth as everything is in perspective to each other. Things in the distance and in the same proportion to each other as they are in the foreground.

When drawing in perspective you can either use single point or multi-point perspective.

With single point you put just one point on the horizon line for all the lines to connect to.

Whereas in multi-point perspective you put two points and either connect the lines as if you are beneath the object looking up, looking down upon the object or looking straight at it.

You can also used perspective in a curve to a vanishing point that can’t be seen by the viewer.
