Question! With the perspective in the second step, how do you figure out where to place the vanishing points? Do you just pick an arbitrary location for them, or do you get them from the picture itself? It looks like you chose the blue one at the sun because it's the focus of the painting, the red one comes from the perspective in the photo itself... but I'm not sure how you figured out the green vanishing point.

Where would you place the vanishing points if all three of them were off-screen? If you were working from a photo like this: www.deviantart.com/art/Phillip… where would you put the vanishing points. If it were a city or something, you could get the vanishing points from the building's angles, but I'm not quite sure how to do it when the shapes are more organic. :S

hey thanks for your question, in this case it's rather arbitrary but conducted by the focal point in the very centre. Since I wanted a symetrical perspective the central vanishing point was obvious and the scene allowed me to do so. Which is not always the case. When you have line, squares and all the perspective is always there and you can't do anything else but follow it.

In the case of your picture here, you have the horizon line and the rock border in front which can give you hints as to a perspective grid. In this case it has to be a bit arbitrary and guessed logically so that it works. See if you can find stuff on perspective on the net 1, 2 or 3 vanishing points, when you understood them, your feeling on the scene will do the rest.

 

Godd luck dude!!

Great help, but how do you make the perspective grid lines? Simply by hand?

Well you can use the Line tool or just draw vertical lines with the Maj or Capital Key pressed. Then with Transformation Ctrl+T you follow the perspective and match your grid.

Great work, Sebastien! I first saw the final image in issue 106 of 'Advanced Photoshop.' That was a great tutorial you gave on page 44 about 'Space Art.'
