ZERO POINT PERSPECTIVE

Notice all the “length” sides are parallel, all width sides are parallel, and all height sides are parallel.The box in this form is said to be not realistic: it has no point perspectives.

THREE POINT PERSPECTIVE

THREE POINT PERSPECTIVE

Three point perspective is probably the most challenging of all. In three-point perspective every line will eventually converge on one of three points. Three-point perspective is the most dramatic of all and can often be seen in comic books when the hero is flying over buildings or whooping butt in the alley below as the…

TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE

TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE

TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE One-point perspective works fine if you happen to be looking directly at the front of something or standing in the middle of some railroad tracks, but what if the scene is viewed from the side? Then you shift into two-point perspective. Two-point perspective has two vanishing points on the horizon line. All…

ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE

ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE

ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE One-point perspective is when all the major lines of an image converge on one point. You can see this effect best illustrated when looking down a set of straight railroad tracks or a long road. The lines of the road and track, although we know they are the same distance apart, seem…

PERSPECTIVE

PERSPECTIVE

There are two simple rules about representing depth. Size decreases with distance, meaning objects that are further away from the viewer appear to be smaller. Objects also overlap when one is in front of the other, hiding part or all of the farther objects. These two observations are the basis for perspective. The easiest way…

Vanishing Point : perspective term

Vanishing Point : perspective term

Vanishing Point Lines that are parallel to one another and level with the ground plane, such asfurrowsin a plowed field, appear to meet at the same point on the horizon line. This point is known as the vanishing point. The vanishing point is one of the most important points to establish accurately in order to…

Horizon Line : perspective term

Horizon Line : perspective term

The horizon is represented by the point at which the sea and sky, or flat land and sky meet. This is the natural and true horizon. Then true horizon line is always at the level of your eyes and will change as you change the elevation of view. The higher the elevation of view, the…

Viewing Point and Angle and Elevation of View : perspective term

16 January, 2009

Every object appears different when viewed from various angles. In order to create a realistic illusion of the subject, we must view it and all other relating objects from the same viewing point. The viewing point can be seen as a straight line from our eye to the horizon line. If we move to the…

Picture Plane : perspective term

Picture Plane : perspective term

The “picture plane” is simply the surface area of the picture. The edges of the picture are the limits, or edges, of the picture plane. In the introduction we discussed how Alberti saw the “picture plane” as a window through which the artist sees the visible three-dimensional world. That window is the surface of our…

Subject : perspective term

16 January, 2009

Subject We all know that the term “subject” refers to the object or scene that we are dealing with in the composition of our drawing or painting. It can be one item or many things, such as a complex scene from nature. Whichever it is, we must try and present that subject so as to…

SCIENTIFIC DEFINITION OF PERSPECTIVE

    This figure is similar to the previous one, except that the extremity A of the given line is raised from the ground, but the same demonstration applies to it.         And now let us suppose the vertical plane K to be a sheet of glass, and the given line AE…

THE RULES AND CONDITIONS OF PERSPECTIVE

THE RULES AND CONDITIONS OF PERSPECTIVE

The conditions of linear perspective are somewhat rigid. In the first place, we are supposed to look at objects with one eye only; that is, the visual rays are drawn from a single point, and not from two. Of this we shall speak later on. Then again, the eye must be placed in a certain…

HISTORY OF PERSPECTIVE

HISTORY OF PERSPECTIVE

Perspective in the art of drawing and painting and in some relief sculpture is a technique that allows us to represent three dimensional objects and space on a flat surface or plane. This surface or planes is the board, paper, canvas, or surface onto which we draw or paint our impression and view of an…
