One Point Perspective

How to draw a one point perspective. For drawing in perspective you have a horizon and a vanishing point. For a one point perspective you have one vanishing point. For this tutorial you need a pencil, paper and a ruler. Everything has perspective! This tutorial is a primer for getting better at drawing. We are also going to draw some cubes in perspective, to get a better idea how perspective works. And finally we are going to draw a house in perspective, using one vanishing point. The illustration you see on this page is also made with a one-point-perspective. It is an illustration out of the interactive eBook ‘The First Hippo’ that is available on iBooks. If you have iBooks on your iPad or Mac you can buy the eBook here:
