Floating Boxes (no designs)

  1. 1. FLOATING BOXES (no designs)
  2. 2. The boxes to the left to the tracks in the one-point perspective example have one face perfectly aligned parallel to the picture plane. This is a limitation of one point perspective. Another problem with this technique is that objects become more distorted the further they are from the vanishing point, as can be seen with the far left box in the example.
  3. 3. Convergence: One of the central concepts of linear perspective is that parallel lines in nature appear to converge (come together) as they recede. The apparent convergence of parallels occurs at eye level.
  4. 4. “Look here, man, shouldn’t that be the other way around?”
  5. 5. One-Point Perspective Vanishing Point: This example of railroad tracks is a classic example of one-point perspective. If you were to stand in the center of a straight stretch of railroad track, you could look down the rails until they appear to finally converge. The point of convergence is called the vanishing point. Presuming the ground is flat, the vanishing point will be located on the horizon line.
  6. 6. Eye level and the rate of convergence: If you had a view of the track from the top of an engine, you would see the tracks converging at a slow rate toward a high vanishing point (a). If, however, you were tied to the railroad track, you would see the tracks converging sharply to a low vanishing point (b).
