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.

Pretty good man!

I knew how to do all of that already but I've never thought of using it in Flash, and it's still pretty interesting. And dude, you can do damn good perspective scenes!

Great tutorial but....

I'll admit, I skimmed through it, (as all the info in it is pretty old-hat to me) so maybe I missed it but didn't you leave out the horizon line? Arguably the single most important element of perspective layouts! Also, you might have mentioned (although it's a little advanced) that objects not aligned to each other have different perspective points. All in all good stuff though.

z3n responds:

I disagree that the horizon line is necessary in the construction of the drawing elements. The perspective points in 2pt.pers accomplishes that. It can be drawn in when you need to generate the actual horizon in the drawing.
I do agree partially that objects can have their own perspective points, but anything with any orientation can be generated using the existing scene perspective points.

Thanx for the thoughtful reviews!

NIce !!!

Your tutorial is pretty good !!! Not much people are willing to make a Flash tutorial for others, which makes your tutorial more valuable !!! You should make more. Keep up the great work man !!!

This has to be one of the most informative tutorials on NG. There is alot of useful information along with great examples to illustrate your points. I loved the scene drawing at the end of each chapter. You can definately tell that this submission took some time and thought to create. Great job. Can't wait to see the movies your going to create with the use of those and future scenes.
