Project Description

Following the example in the video, you will create a building in one point perspective using Adobe illustrator's perspective grid feature, you can feel free to create an environment for your building adding sidewalk, trees, sky, and so on. You can add colours to make it more visually interesting. However, before you start working right away on Adobe illustrator, I will recommend that you first of all sketch your building in one point perspective so that you have a unique goal in mind with respect to the building you will be creating.

Step 1:
Set up a one point perspective grid on Adobe illustrator

Step 2:
Draw a building using the one point perspective grid

 Step 3 ( optional ) :
Add an environment to your building and colour your final illustration.

Don’t worry if it doesn’t look so perfect. In the real world practice makes perfect. The goal is to show that you understand this concept. Feel free to submit your class project and ask questions where you experience any difficulty. Most importantly, have fun!
