Project: Drawing in perspective

it's time to actually start making some lines here. In addition to being just a drawing application, Adobe Lion also acts as a drafting app that many people are using to create architectural renderings or So what I'm going to do is I'm even interior design spaces. going to make sure that I have touch slide turned on. In this movie, I'm going to show you how to work in perspective to And with touch slide turned on, the benefit here is that it is going to create those types of drawings. And also, we'll work on a little interior space of our own. snap to different angles, and I am going to start off just by going up and Let's go ahead and get started. down, like this, just to create some straight up and down lines. I'm going to create a brand new document by tapping right here and So let's move this over a little bit to right here. that's just going to jump me in to this. And you know, this could be the side of a building, And one of the things that you want to make sure that you have turned on is touch it could be a window inside of an interior space, slide, because that's how all of this is going to work best for you. there are many different reasons why you would want to draw in perspective. So, go up and touch right there to turn touch slide on. I'm just giving you an idea of how to do that. You may see it in the default mode, or if you've been working along with me, you may also see that you're still using one of the stamps.

So now, what I'm going to do is just draw a line, going straight up and down like that. If you are, just go back and make sure lines and basic shapes is turned on. I'm going to draw another line that goes back a little bit. And so, once we do that, we're also going to define a perspective grid. And if you want to, you can actually kind of trace, like, where that would go. This is going to help you if you're not used to drawing in perspective, So let's start here and just kind of go down. actually see how to draw certain lines so Maybe something like that. that it looks like it's actually going back in space. Here's the interesting part about this. To do that we're going to use this button right here, and when I tap on that, When I rotate this around, see all those little red dots that pop up on screen? you're going to see that it creates this perspective grid for me with two Those are snapping to those end points and allowing it to base itself off of different vanishing points where I can then draw lines based on those. And so with this you can manipulate it, going underneath it, that vanishing point that goes way off the screen. So now, I can just kind of draw like this, and then we'll move this down a bit. you can go on top of it, you can rotate it around to see different perspectives, there's lots of different things you can do with this.

And something kind of like that. And so what I'm going to do is just going to keep it right here in the center If you make a mistake and something goes over like that, so we can see it and I'll hit OK. that's no big deal, just turn off touch slide for a minute, grab the eraser and So once I've got my perspective grid all set up, it's time to actually start making some lines here. you can just erase anything that doesn't need to be there. So what I'm going to do is I'm If you need to extend a line, like I do there, that's okay. going to make sure that I have touch slide turned on. And with touch slide turned on, the benefit here is that it is going to Turn touch slide back on. snap to different angles, and I am going to start off just by going up and And then just rotate it around. down, like this, just to create some straight up and down lines. So let's move this over a little bit to right here. Something like this. And you know, this could be the side of a building, it could be a window inside of an interior space, And complete that line. there are many different reasons why you would want to draw in perspective. Make sure you have the pen selected instead of the eraser, and I'm just giving you an idea of how to do that. So now, what I'm going to do is just draw a line, going straight up and then once you do that you should be able to complete that line, like that. And again, if you go over, eraser's very easy to use. down like that. I'm going to draw another line that goes back a little bit. Just get in there and take it out. And if you want to, you can actually kind of trace, like, where that would go. So let's start here and just kind of go down.

You can also use the multi-finger gesture. Maybe something like that. Kind of step back through and make any adjustments you need to that way. Here's the interesting part about this. So now I'm just going to go in one last time, finish off that little corner, and When I rotate this around, see all those little red dots that pop up on screen? Those are snapping to those end points and allowing it to base itself off of we'll keep going. that vanishing point that goes way off the screen.

So I'll turn touch slide back on, rotate it around, make sure it snaps right there to the corner, and then I'll just redraw right over that point and have it snap. So now, I can just kind of draw like this, and then we'll move this down a bit. Now I can go in and draw the other side of that as well, And something kind of like that. If you make a mistake and something goes over like that, that's no big deal, just turn off touch slide for a minute, grab the eraser and you can just erase anything that doesn't need to be there. works much the same way, but let's take this more to a real-world scenario. If you need to extend a line, like I do there, that's okay. Let's think about actually drawing inside of an interior space and Turn touch slide back on. And then just rotate it around. what that would look like. Something like this. And complete that line.

You don't necessarily have to use a perspective grid to do that, but the touch slide is actually really good at doing something like that. Make sure you have the pen selected instead of the eraser, and Let's take a look. then once you do that you should be able to complete that line, like that. Let's go back out to the gallery. And again, if you go over, eraser's very easy to use. And I'm just going to create a new drawing here. Just get in there and take it out. And instead of using nothing as a basis for this, I'm going to load in a photo. You can also use the multi-finger gesture. And I actually have some interior photos that I'm going to include in your Kind of step back through and make any adjustments you need to that way. exercise files, so you can go and you can grab these and load them onto your iPad. So now I'm just going to go in one last time, finish off that little corner, and Just put them in your camera roll on your iPad. we'll keep going. And so, what I'm going to do is choose this one right here. So I'll turn touch slide back on, rotate it around, make sure it snaps right there to the corner, and then I'll just redraw right over that point and have it snap. And I'm going to increase the size of it quite a bit so we can actually see it. And then, what I'm going to do is paste that into the background. Now I can go in and draw the other side of that as well, And so this is going to serve as the basis of my interior design drawing that I'm works much the same way, but let's take this more to a real-world scenario. going to create. Let's think about actually drawing inside of an interior space and what that would look like.

And so, I'm going to use this same pin that I've been using. I'm going to make sure that touch slide is turned on. You don't necessarily have to use a perspective grid to do that, but And then, I'm going to turn it to full screen mode so that I can see this. the touch slide is actually really good at doing something like that. And so now, all I have to do is just start lining this thing up Let's take a look. with all the different angles inside of this building. Let's go back out to the gallery. And so I can kind of line this up right there to draw this. And I'm just going to create a new drawing here. It doesn't have to be dead on, but And instead of using nothing as a basis for this, I'm going to load in a photo. And I actually have some interior photos that I'm going to include in your it's just going to give me a better idea of how to do it. exercise files, so you can go and you can grab these and load them onto your iPad. Just put them in your camera roll on your iPad. And so, what I'm going to do is choose this one right here. And I'm going to increase the size of it quite a bit so we can actually see it. And then, what I'm going to do is paste that into the background. And then we'll come in here, kind of snap that back. And so this is going to serve as the basis of my interior design drawing that I'm going to create. Something like that. And just draw over the top of that.

Go right there. And then we'll come in here, kind of snap that back. Something like that. And just draw over the top of that. I'm going to snap it to that point. There we go. And again, I'm just rotating this thing around to snap to all these different points to creat these lines. And once I get it right where I want it, just drawing the line. It's as simple as that. It's like using tracing paper. So here we go. We'll do this over here, make sure that that goes straight, something like that. And we'll move that down, and do something straight across there.

And again, you can make adjustments to this using the eraser or anything you need. For now, I'm just kind of giving you a rough idea of what this would look like. So let's step that down. Something like that. And then I'll jump out of full screen mode here for a minute, and I can come over here and I can kind of fade this in and out so you can see exactly what I'm creating here and so you can actually have this kind of quasi faded out in the background and then start applying different elements to it. So for instance I could come in here and add different stamps to this.

So maybe we come in and we find something like, you know, Herman Miller chairs or sofas. Let's do this. Let's grab one of those. And that's going to come out. Let's turn touch slide on. And let's bring out that little sofa. And then we can increase the size of that a bit. Let's bring it down. And so we'll set it right back there against that back wall. And we can double tap. And there it is. And so now, even with that ghosted image in the background, you can kind of see what this floor plan is going to look like with that object right there.

What's even cooler is that had we used a perspective grid for this, the couch might actually be shifted a little bit. Or if we put a chair in there, it might be a little further back than the couch. That's the benefit of using a tool like this to create interior space mock ups. Or even exterior mock ups for that matter. These tools are meant to give you more control over the creative documents that you create. So I highly recommend checking this out, using the prospective feature, and also playing around with those stamps. It's great way to get a feel for what's going inside of a space and also creating full on architectural renderings if that's something that you need to do.

creating full on architectural renderings if that's something that you need to do.
