Point Perspective Tutor

Share Collapse

Author Comments

I've had many requests by flash authors how I do my flash scenes with 3 dimensional appearance. After explaining the the process of Point Perspective Drawing is not something that can easily be taught verbally, I have promised to release a tutorial covering the topic.

This tutorial explains how to use two methods of Point Perspective drawing to create the illusion of 3D in flash scenes and drawings.

THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE! If you are not an artist or flash author, you may or may not find this tutorial interesting.

Along with the Turorial, I have included with both types of drawing tutorials, a Demonstration drawing. You can watch the tutorials to learn the methodology, or you can skip them using the main contents menu and just watch the DEMO drawing scenes which will be more interesting to non-artists.

Very helpful. something tells me Jonochrome used these methods in this tutorial

THis is amazing...i love the live demos..it shows you have a deep understanding of perspective...i think i need to reverse engineer some backgrounds to be able to draw them myself....but if your still active on this site you should make a "drawing people/ animals in perspective tutorial"...great work!!


Really Useful Tutorial!

Excellent refresher!

This is a very nice tutorial. When I was in college, I took a drawing class specifically to learn how to do nice perspective. This program refreshed my memory very nicely. I'm actually glad you didn't try to do 3-point perspective. That style is scary, but also pretty awesome looking. Thank you for taking the time to create this.

PS: once you do the movie that those scenes are from, you should put a link to it in the comment. I look forward to seeing it.


Immediatley after using this tutorial, I made some pretty awesome (simple, too) 1st person perspective animations and games. This tutorial helps quite a bit, and really isn't that confusing at all, especially if you try it out yourself.
