[MediBang Paint for iPad] How to draw in 1 point perspective

2020/11/06

I’m going to explain 1 point perspective with MediBang paint for iPad.It is a really effective practice to draw simple shapes in a space! I'm sure it will improve your skill tremendously!

1, What is eye level

(1) Eye level is where your eyes are, the height of your eyes.

(2) When an object is below an eye level → You see the top surface of the object.
     When an object is on an eye level → You see the sides.
     When an object is above an eye level → You see the bottom.

2, 1 point perspective

(1) Define an eye level.

(2) Put a vanishing point on the eye level.
     (vanishing point is a point which exists on the horizon line. it can be placed anywhere on an eye level, and everything in a canvas converses into the point.)

(3) Extension of the lines meets at the eye level.

(4) In 1 point perspective, horizontal lines are always parallel to each other, as are vertical lines.

(5) When an object is below an eye level → You see the top surface of the object.
     When an object is on an eye level → You see the sides.
     When an object is above the eye level → You see the bottom.
     You don’t want to forget this idea.

(6) This method can be applied to a complex object as well.

3, Background

(1) I applied the method to my background drawing.

(2) If you take a close look, lines are towards the center where the vanishing point is.

(3) If you hide the drawing layer, now you can see these are made out of just boxes!

It is an effective practice to draw simple shapes in a space in perspective!
