Today we take a look at the last and most complex drawing tool: The Three Point Perspective Ruler in Manga Studio. In this post we are going to learn how to set up ruler drawing once again the table example; this time with Three Vanishing Points.

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!

After choosing the Three Point Perspective ruler, the resulting ruler will be almost identical to the Two Point, with a +120 degree separation between vanishing points. But if we zoom out, we will see that there is now a Third Point on the top. This point will be the third Vanishing Point, that will represent the foreshortened height.

As a default, the third Vanishing Point of the ruler will be up, giving us what is called a Worm View, or a view where we are looking from the ground up. To change this to a view where we are looking down from above, or Bird View, we can use the Operation tool.

If for some reason we cannot see the ruler when we are in another layer, we must select the ruler layer and check that is set to Show in All Layers. We can always change these setting to better suit our needs.

When we start our drawing, the lines will now snap to any of the three vanishing points. We will use the third point to set the inclination of the vertical lines into perspective.

Learning perspective is very important to be able to make good, professional drawings.

Although it seems very complicated, it is actually very easy to learn, and with the help of the perspective rulers from Manga Studio the task becomes even easier!
