Using perspective to draw in Illustrator

Explore Pixel Playground at lynda.com.


This week Bert kicks off a short series of tutorials showing how he created an illustrated magazine cover. Today’s technique is all about how to create a two-point perspective system in Adobe Illustrator so you can draw your artwork.

Bert begins by finding the left edge vanishing point based on a few elements of the artwork on his page. With the first vanishing point established, he can then determine a horizon line and eventually create a second point of perspective. Bert finishes up the lesson by showing how he used these lines to create his final illustration.

Watch this week’s free video to start using perspective to draw in Illustrator, and check back next week for the next installment of Bert’s Pixel Playground perspective tutorial.
