Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to adjust perspectives in Illustrator. So the perspectives tool is a very interesting one in Illustrator and the way you go about even having it on your screen is to go to this little button right here, which is the perspective grid tool and this opens up your perspective grid and what this is for is for helping you draw buildings and landscapes and such and so there's a couple ways you can adjust this to make it look different. So like suppose a building you're drawing isn't this thick, you can, this little arrow or sorry, this little knob right here, you can drag it so that your building becomes thinner and you can do it on this side too. So for example if you're building a skyscraper, and you can also adjust how tall it goes and you can adjust how, you can adjust, just if it's not necessarily a building but perhaps like an in between building kind of thing like an alleyway, you can do this kind of deal. You can put it back and then you can also adjust, if it's just like a wall for example or you can also, you can make it so that it's like, maybe it's not a wall, maybe it's some sculpture and then you can adjust this which it adjusts the horizon line so where the vanishing point is. So maybe it's higher up and maybe you're taking it from like a plane perspective or from an aerial view and then this is how far out it goes and how close and then once you've figured it out you can add, you can go ahead and like start drawing on it if you want to, but you know, this is exactly what you would do if you wanted to start, you know drawing a building. My name is Alex and this is how you adjust the perspectives in Illustrator. Thank you.
