SINGLE POINT PERSPECTIVE - VANISHING POINTS 1

V. Ryan 2006 -2008

 

Altering the position of the VP changes the view of the object being drawn. For example, to look down at the top of the object the vanishing point must be above. However, to look up at the object the vanishing point must be below .

Moving the VP to the left or right of the object will allow the sides to be seen. If the VP is placed directly behind the object then only the front will be seen.

   

 

 

The animation of the chair displayed below emphasises the importance of  positioning the vanishing point carefully. This chair is drawn with two vanishing points (this is called two point perspective). When the VPs are above the chair the view is also from above, looking downwards. However, when the VPs are moved below the chair the view also changes so that we are know looking from underneath.

   
 
 

QUESTIONS:

1. Draw a cube in single point perspective with the VP above. Add suitable colour / shade.

2. Draw the same cube, again in single point perspective - but this time place the VP below. Add colour and shade.
