One Point Perspective Ruler in Manga Studio

One Point Perspective Ruler in Manga Studio

In this video we are going to learn how to set up the perspective rulers of Manga Studio to One Point Perspective, and we are going to see how easy it is to build something in perspective with this ruler!

The following text is a transcript from the video above. You can go ahead and watch it. It will be easier to understand and it will take only a few minutes of your time. But if you are old school and prefer to do all the reading, feel free to do so!

To build our perspective ruler, we will go to the Layer menu and select Ruler – Frame – Create perspective Ruler. A pop-up will appear, where we can specify what kind of perspective ruler we want to create. We will choose One point Perspective, and click OK.

In our document we will have the ruler created, with the Horizon Line and one vanishing point in the middle. The default perspective ruler has a separation of 90 degrees from the vanishing point. This can be adjusted with the Operation tool if needed.

With the ruler in place, we can now start drawing lines, and they will snap to the proper perspective angle automatically.

The ruler will be set in its own layer. We could draw on this layer, but it’s best if we make a new raster layer on top of it to make our draft there.

We will talk more about One Point, Two Point and Three Point perspective in the Perspective Drawing course we will start publishing from October of 2015.
