One Point Perspective A step-by-step guide

1. Always begin by finding the Horizon Line
1. Always begin by finding the Horizon Line. In this case my eye level is a bit closer to the floor than to the ceilings. Therefore, I'll place my horizon in the bottom half of the page.

2. Next, find your Vanishing Point
2. Next, find your Vanishing Point. If drawing a hallway, consider which side of the hall you are closer too. Here, I am just right of center.

3. Draw the end of the hall. Consider your horizon line and vanishing point when placing this box. You must be directly facing this wall to draw in one-point perspective. If you are at an angle to this wall, you should draw two-point perspective instead.

4. All receding lines will converge (meet) at the vanishing point
4. All receding lines will converge (meet) at the vanishing point. The corners of the room reflect where the ceilings and floors meet with the walls.

5. The top of a door is usually parallel to the ceiling and floor, therefore, it must also converge at the vanishing point.

5a.The sides of the tiles that recede into space meet at the vanishing point, while the sides of the tiles that are parallel to the end of the hallway will be drawn as horizontal lines. Notice how these lines get closer together as they recede into space.

6. Finally, erase all the "imaginary" lines
6. Finally, erase all the "imaginary" lines. You will be left with a drawing that gives the illusion of realistic 3-D space!
