    Smile Questions regarding Perspective.

    CA.orgers.

    I was given a floor plan with some measurements on it and I drew it looking from let's say the north wall to the south wall and a few feet from the west wall , and 8 ft from the picture plane in 1 point perspective with a Central Vanishing Point and the two secondary vanishing points.

    However, now I would like to change it to a diagonal angle looking from one corner to another, How would I do that ?
    Note that: The room is not a perfect square, it's a rectangle.

    Also, How do I draw a room so that it looks like I'm looking down into it from an angle ? where do I put the perspective / vanishing points, how many are there, and how do I figure it out ?

    I know how to change the eye level, distance from picture plane, and about central and Secondary Vanishing points, but I don't know how to use them in certain situations.

    Thanks,
    Mr_S_14

    Fast Dirty Answer: Work it out in Google SketchUp-- it's free!

    Secondary Answer: You really really need to read Perspective Drawing Handbook by Joseph D'Amelio!

    Tertiary Answer: If you have D'Amelio's book, you need to study it until you understand it!

    Orient the floor plan and then drop lines from it for the proportions. Set your station point and vanishing points
    Since you are looking down into the room the horizon line would be higher but the idea is still the same
