Learn how to work 2-point perspective of interior vs exterior.

- [Voiceover] Let's take it inside…and practice drawing the corner of an imagined room.…Here's a new grid design to make drawing interiors easier.…Don't worry, there's still a horizon line here,…this red line coming across,…and the difference is basically…that rather than having an exterior corner…coming towards us in space,…we're placing a far corner, this corner right here,…in the distance, so we're making a space…that you can actually walk into.…
So, this is an interior grid designed…to help you draw interiors.…You'll have this to practice with in your exercise files.…So, let's first just simply place this corner of the room.…So, notice how this corner comes down vertical…and then our diagonals rather than converging…towards each other and moving away,…they actually sort of fan out towards us in space.…This creates our two walls.…The reality is, that they actually still…work with our vanishing point.…
So, if you follow this wall back in space…through the corner, you would actually connect…with the vanishing point on the right,…
Join artist Amy Wynne in this class as she demonstrates the basics of two-point perspective. After a brief demo of asymmetrical vs. symmetrical perspectives with 3D blocks, she takes us through more complex projects: an imagined street scene, complete with windows, doors, trees, and light posts, and an interior room with furniture. In chapter 5, Amy introduces strategies to strengthen your compositions by improving the illusion of depth. Practicing these techniques will breathe new life into your drawing and give you a new "perspective" on drawing.
