Hi Terry, it may be helpful to understand one point, two point and three point perspective. This link explains it well I think. |
As an exercise, you can sketch a railroad track. Then try sketching one at an angle. Then try making it a railroad that's on a bridge with pylons over water. Another good way to grasp it would be to draw simple cubes like we did as kids....a square with a smaller square inside that you connect the corners on. If you extend those lines out on the cube until they intersect then you will see your perspective point.

Did I help or completely muddle things up?
I don't recall ever having to do exact measurements. We made our ruler do the work for us. but we didn't sit and measure and measure and measure. We made a straight line..figured out where we wanted our vanishing point (or points) and worked out from there.
See if this is any better for you. The house in this example is set above the horizon line. As you can see the same method is used for it as the house along the horizon line as the house below the horizon line. :-) ...http://www.artistsnetwork.com/articl...nt-perspective

I get the idea of perspective but that tutorial is messed up. I messaged the back line of the roof going down on the undetailed picture and the detailed picture and they are not the same angel or the same length of line in the back. The undetailed is much shorter and the angel is such that it makes the slant more pronounced and it looks distorted to me. Where as measuring the detailed one it is has better perspective. |
Explanation of the measurements on the bottom of the tutorial will be very helpful to me and I thank you so much for researching this.

You have to draw in perspective. What that means is that you are going to have to pull out the old ruler. Keep in mind - the farther back an object is..the smaller it will be and as it comes forward on the page it becomes larger. |
Hopefully this will give an idea where to start. http://www.technologystudent.com/designpro/perhous2.htm
A ruler is all you should need. I did a few cityscapes using a similar method..there are different levels of perspective drawings..1 point..2 point..3 point..for your case I think this is the appropriate perspective method to use.

Drawing a cabin
I've done a few houses in pictures and my biggest problem has always been to get the angel of the walls and roof the way they look in the reference photo. Usually after much erasing I get it close but I'm looking for the easiest way to do it. I was thinking of trying a compass. Need to buy one today. Any one have advice on this subject?
