Perspective Drawing In Art and Design

Perspective drawing is an interesting and complex way of drawing. The types of perspective drawing, enables you to draw simple shapes, and complicated landscapes.

There are few types including one, and two perspectives using a horizontal line and vanishing point. The more you learn about it, the better your drawing practice will be. Especially if you’re an architecture or landscape artist, practice using perspective drawing and you’ll see the difference later.

I’ll share with you in this post how I used perspective art for my drawings.

You can use this technique to draw even complicated shapes. It helps you deconstruct the scenery or objects you see in a way that helps you reconstruct and build your own work in return. Because you can draw the object as it is. Or express it your way. What I mean by that, is you can use brush strokes whether with real paints or digitally and imitate the object in front of you. That’s why, it’s important to learn basic art rules to know how to work with painting and sketching tools later.

1-point perspective is the basic form of perspective drawing. It has one vanishing point where the lines extend to construct the composition. And there is 2-points perspective which uses two vanishing points to create shapes and composition. And this can be used not only to draw objects, but human figures as well.

Also, even though using this technique creates sharp edges, yet you can use it to draw soft-edged shapes like circles.

In 3 points perspective, there is the isometric drawing that architectures use for their drawings. Today, some graphic designers use isometric drawing to create beautifully painted digital illustrations. Below are some examples of my own isometric work:
