    Been sketching from a Sketchup PNG last night, finished the rough, i'll get more detailed tomorrow

    As you can see from the images, i need to do some work on scale and such, but i'll get there

    Really enjoying using Google Sketchup, so much to choose from and the renderings are quite simple in detail unlike photographs

    I have a question that i would dearly love to be answered by you pro's

    In the sketch above, where would you put your perspective line, would you use 1 point or 2 point perspective for that sketch. The sketch is done by sight only at the moment and it reeks of perspective problems because of it.

    I am having a great deal of trouble understanding where to put my perspective lines, is it just where i'm standing ie: my point of view, or is there a simple formula which will tell me where to place them, or do i look at my initial house structural lines and base a perspective line off of it.

    I'm at a complete loss as to where to place my perspective line, so i can accurately draw the key angles of the house.

    I would be over the moon if someone could either draw them into that sketch in a way that explains why they have been put it that place, or a detailed explanation of where to place the lines would be great also.

    Please help me to understand the placement of perspective lines ???

    You can use the ruler in AR but that's a pain in the ass so I used the line tool in SAI to draw the vanishing points, alternatively you could use a square grid on the ground that should help you getting a feel of the perspective and see where the lines go in your sketch.





    All lines converge to an imaginary point in the horizon, if you draw two vanishing points in the horizon and draw a box, one side will go to one point while the other side to the other. Use primitive shapes like cubes while learning perspective.


    Edit, maybe someone could make vanishing point and perspective stencils.

    Thanks Furio, that's excellent, makes perfect sense, i'll do that next time, i'm drawing anything that's not organic

    Just one question there Furio, it seems like there's room for 3 point perspective in that drawing, or perhaps 4 if there's such a thing, there are angles which aren't covered with the perspective lines that you've drawn, how do you go about those other lines. Nope it's not clear to me

    1 such line is the opposite driveway, although you could do one side and level the other with the 1st line, on the roof there's some lines that are virtually pointing straight at us ??

    Taking another look those lines only take care of the straight horizontal lines, not the semi vertical angles which i was also talking about ??

    I just continued with furio's work. I added a few colors where thought the perspective was a little tricky to see. The yellow and green lines don't align with any particular perspective lines, those are the geometry of the roof. The top and corners of the roof all line up, and at that point you simply fill in the missing lines to get the triangle look. (The cylinder I attempted is a little crooked, but I hope you can see how that fits in there. It's hard to get those ovals just so in MS paint )

    For the really weird angle line on the roof, find on the top of the roof where the blue perspective line runs into the roof, mark a point, and draw a line from there to wherever you want the bottom of that section of the roof. The whole situation is sort of confused by the chimney, but that is what makes perspective so fun.

    I hope this helps!

    Yeah it did Gray, i see you point with the triangles now, the chimney wasn't a huge problem, it was those triangles, but i think i have it sorted, guess i could have worked it out, but with everything else that going on in my life, i seem to have lost my ability to fathom most things

    Thanks for pointing that out Gray i really appreciate it
