Hey, what's up? Chris here and today we're going to be learning drawing ideas for perspectives, meaning how you see things, depth and perception. So, what we can do is we're going to draw some stairs leading to a door but we're going to do it in a perspective format so it looks like you're looking at the stairs. So, the first thing we want to do is we want to draw the door, so we'll make the line about so so and here is the door. So we'll bring this line down and we'll bring this line down here, connect those and draw the doorknob and the panels to the door and the other panels and so forth. There you go. Now, what you do is you have the step and here's your first step. Now, the perception, the key, the trick is, as the steps come down they get bigger, or longer for a better word. See what I mean? So as you're coming down you're extending each step just by a little bit and it gives the illusion that you're at the bottom of the stairs looking up and you're trying to get to the door. See how it all comes together? Now you are basically at the bottom of the staircase looking up. If you really want to add some extra spice to it, for each one of these lines you draw one like this going up. Now, it gives the depth perception and the perspective of the steps that you want to walk up. And that's the key to perspective. So now we'll take this marker and we'll just go over these outside lines to show emphasis. Know what I mean? And now once you see that it's believable that you can walk up the stairs and turn the door. And there you have it. I'm Chris and these are your drawing tips for perspectives.
