Krita tip: Ease setup 1 point perspective assistant

Standard

Going trough a perspective course at Crimsom Daggers I decided not only to make the exercises but to get them to a certain level of presentation. (I keep the sepia like scheme as I find out I can work for larger periods of time with it).

Using Krita assistants tools not only allows for faster work but also cleaner and more organized look. For diagonals outside the grid I switched to the line tool.  I used a few layers to organize shapes and soften most construct lines and some masks to keep lines from overlapping.

Setting up a grid

Setting a one point perspective grid is super easy with some planning. The following short video will show you the steps to achieve it.

The most important thing to remember:

  • Set an outer square area to align the cage outer sides
  • Draw an inner area to to align the inner cage points, this is important as it’s impossible for the perspective assistant corners to snap at a single point (The perspective assistant breaks).

The file

The zip file contains the KRA original file and a .krassistant file to load with the assistants docker. You can reuse the krassistants grid adjusting the corners to the size you need. Get the file!

Seeya!
