Rooms are drawn with a two-point perspective
Two-point perspective is a perspective method in which two vanishing points are determined.
Drawing the back side of a wall
First, let us explain how to draw a room. Draw the back side of the wall in the room by drawing the eye level (EL) and the vanishing point (VP).
If you erase the lines that are not needed, it will look like this.
Place a person or draw a door to make it look more like a room.
Bring out the size of the furniture.
Let’s determine the specific size of each piece of furniture. This is the same size as the furniture used when drawing the room from a one-point perspective.
Prepare evenly spaced squares that will serve as memory.
Decide how many centimeters per memory you want this spacing to be, so you will have a reference for the size when drawing the furniture.
In this case, the size of the room is 250 cm, so we set 1 square to 50 cm.
Setting up the drawing guide
Now we will actually draw the interior of the room. Select “Action” > “Drawing Guide” > “Edit Drawing Guide” and set the drawing guide for 2-point perspective.
Drawing the walls
We will start from the back corner.
Place a grid on the wall
Place the grids you prepared earlier on each wall. You can transform them as in perspective by using Transform → Distortion.
When both are placed, it will look like this. We now have a 250cm x 250cm room ready to go.
Drawing the desk
First, draw a box the size of the furniture you want to draw. Drawing the box as if stretching it from end to end makes it easier to see the size.
Draw the box while referring to the grid and the setting material.
After erasing the unnecessary parts, the box will look like this.
After drawing each part and deleting unnecessary parts, the desk is complete.
Drawing the bookshelf
The same method was used to draw the bookshelf.
The room interior is complete!
The desk and bookshelf will look like this when neatly cleaned up. You can draw the interior by arranging the other furniture in the same way.
