One Point Perspective Grids 

Assignment #1 Part 1One & Two Point GridsFor this assignment, on an 11" x 17" sheet of paper, I want you to draw a one point perspective room using a grid on each of the surfaces. Place the vanishing point directly in the center of the page. Draw the far wall as a square surface (the height is the same length as the width), make it about 3" square. Be sure the vanishing point is in the center of this square. (You can make a light 'X' connecting the corners as a guide.) Now create a 1/2" grid on this square. That will give you 6 squares across and 6 down.


You'll notice that mine has 6 across and 5 down, that's so you can't download my drawing and trace it off. 

Radiate lines out from each of the points along the perimeter from the central vanishing point. 

Next draw the grid on the "ceiling" surface. Be sure each of the squares look like squares and not rectangles. Use your eyes to guage the size and distances required. Be sure to also keep the horizontal lines parallel to the ceiling line. 

Move on to the walls, simply using the intersection points along the corner lines. Again, make sure the lines are parallel, this time to the vertical wall line.
Finally, complete the floor grid.
