Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you some perspective drawing tips. So we're going to create a fence going into the distance. With perspective you always start with your horizon line so we're going to do a straight line right through the middle. Now we're going to draw one straight line in the distance, make it a little bit shorter than that and then another straight line about here. Now that's going to be the start and the end of our fence. To make it easy I'm going to draw a couple light lines between the top and the bottom and that kind of gives us an idea of how big each fence pole will be. So then between those two lines, we just draw some straight lines and that gives us the height of each pole and the distance will probably have a few more closer together. I usually just judge it to see where it looks good so I'm going to get rid of these lines because we don't really need them anymore unless you want to build them in to your design which makes it even easier. So we've got all of our fence poles and I just want to put in a couple lines that go through the fence and it gets a bit tricky when you're getting to the horizon bit but usually the lines end up joining at a point. And you can make the design however you want. I'm going to keep mine nice and simple and if you want to make it bigger and go all the way out you just use these same ideas of lines coming out so the next pole would be even bigger and another one even bigger. So there we go. My name is Daisy and those are some drawing perspective tips.
