Hello Class! 聽Welcome to ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE!

To create a聽drawing from聽One Point Perspective you need to know a few basic things.聽One Point Perspective聽is also called聽Parallel Perspective聽because YOU are parallel to the objects that you will be drawing. Also, vertical lines are parallel and horizontal lines are parallel and the back edges of objects that recede in the distance are parallel to the front edges of those objects.

Rotate it if necessary to it uploads right-side-up. If you have access to any photo-correcting program, see if you can increase the contrast so that delicate drawing lines are visible.

Two point perspective uses two vanishing points set well apart on the horizon line. The rule of thumbs here is sets of parallel lines must be either vertical or recede toward one of the two vanishing points.
