One Point Perspective Grids 

Assignment #1 Part 2One & Two Point GridsFor Part 2 of this assignment, on an 11" x 17" sheet of paper turned horizontally, I want you to draw a one point perspective room using a grid on each of the surfaces. Place the vanishing point in the center of the page like Part 1 but lower by about 2 1/2". Draw the far wall as a square surface (the height is the same length as the width), make it about 6" square. You can trace off the position of the square from Part 1. Now create a 1" grid on this square. That will give you 6 squares across and 6 down.


Again, you'll notice that mine has 6 across and 5 down, that's so you can't download my drawing and trace it off. All the remaining steps are the same as with Part 1. 

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.
