What's "One-Point Perspective"? How To Draw Three-Dimensional Compositions
Have you ever heard of a technique called "one-point perspective", used to create three-dimensional compositions? One-point perspective (or "single-point perspective") is a method used to draw stereoscopic and realistic backgrounds. It's often used to draw interiors and landscapes. The peculiar thing about one-point perspective is that a single 'vanishing point' (1) is used. By increasing the number of vanishing points, you can create two-point and three-point perspectives.
By drawing landscapes while ignoring the perspective, they will end up looking quite unnatural. Although beginners might find it hard to grasp the idea behind the concept of perspective, the illustrations we are featuring today will help you get a deeper understanding on the matter! Enjoy these tutorials and easy explanations on how to master the one-point perspective technique!
(1) Vanishing point: a spot on the horizon line to which the receding parallel lines diminish. In other words, the point where all lines seem to meet.
