Two Point Perspective Ruler in Manga Studio

Two Point Perspective Ruler in Manga Studio

In this post we are going to learn how to set up the Two Point Perspective Ruler in Manga Studio and we are going to draw the same table we did in the previous post, only this time with two 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!

 

Ruler Setup

To build our Perspective Ruler, we will again go to the menu Layer – Ruler / Frame – Create perspective Ruler. This time, we will choose the Two Point Perspective from the pop-up and click OK.

The Create New Layer check is the reason why the ruler will appear in its own layer. If unchecked, the ruler will be in the default raster layer of our document.

In our document we will have the ruler created, with the Horizon Line and two vanishing points. The vanishing points will have a separation of 63 degrees from the center, that sum a total of +120 degrees. This measurement is good enough to make believable square angles in perspective. Although we can change this angles as well with the Operation tool, it is recommended to leave it as default for now.

The ruler has been designed to help us achieve better drawings. Therefore, the angle of the guidelines is set this way to mark the threshold from where distortion related to perspective starts to appear. We should always try to keep our drawing between this lines to prevent distorted perspective and ensure realistic proportions.

Like we saw in the One Point Perspective, the drawn lines will snap to the perspective angle automatically.

We will see the relationship of these angles and the importance of the Cone of Vision in the Perspective Drawing course that we will publish for free here from October of 2015.

Stay tuned for our next tutorials!
