    ugh, perspective issues. big time.

    I'm drawing an apartment room for a project me and a friend are collaborating on, but I just can't seem to get the perspective right. It seems like it should be right, but it just looks horribly off to me.

    This is way, way harder than drawing landscapes, lol.

    the lines of the roof and the ones of the floor dont converge to 1 point (which is supposed to be on the horizon line). they need to though if they are parallel.

    This...

    I fixed it (except for the couch, it should be moved up... I forgot to fix the bottom of the left wall), take this and overlay it on top and turn the layer on and off to see the difference... Re do your perspective lines and always reference them.

    It seems to me you have forgotten the horizon line. That must be the source of all your trouble here.

    Get "Perspective Made Easy" by Norling, and build some basic perspective plots on paper to get a hang of the method.

    Ok, here are the problems summarized in the sketch I did. BEFORE starting you MUST decide how many vanishing points you use and where is the horizon.
    I'd say for this kind of picture you could use one vanishing point. But I guess you could use 2 vanishing points if you will.
    Take a look at this:

    There’s more to 2pt perspective than arbitrarily plopping in 2 VPs on a horizon line. The fact that you didn’t start with a horizon line laid out your doom from the very beginning. You need to think about scale and learn how to measure things out in the xyz perspective space of your scene as well.

    TheBullion24K--You actually just raised the left vp higher than the right (what should be the right vp). That would not be a fix.

    gfxtwin, here’s your scene (faded back) with an overlay of correct lines (*relative to where I referenced them).
