How To Use Perspective Grid Tool Adobe Illustrator Tutorial

Transcript:

[MUSIC] Hey, guys, welcome to another vector made tutorial today. I’d like to talk about options for taking your artwork and placing it into a perspective plane or changing the perspective of your artwork, so lets. Just take a look at this logo that I built a few years ago for a client of mine and right now you would say this is on a flat plane. Just sort of staring at you. Nothing special, but say you wanted to show what this was going to look like on their new office wall here. Well, there’s a couple things. You could do to make that happen. I’ll kind of show you the quick one first, and then the one that takes a little more setup, but that is a little more accurate second. So first the quick one. I’m just going to click and drag this logo down here, just so it’s on the wall, and then I’m going to hit e on my keyboard to bring up the free. Transform options. Here they are. The first one is just a regular transform. The second one is a perspective distort and the third one is a free distort perspective will take whatever corner that you’re drag, and it will drag the opposite corner either vertically or horizontally. So if I click and drag up the bottom one goes down if you can as you can see, so tries to keep everything in perspective. And it, and it’ll look, okay. If when we’re done here, you’ll see, let me shrink it down. Just maybe a tad, but there that’s kind of what it looks like on their wall. I mean, that’s not, that’s not too bad, really because this plane is somewhat even from the the slope here to the slope here. It’s not perfectly even obviously this slopes in a much higher angle and this is a little bit lower angle, but they’re close enough that. I think you could get away with this. If you’re just doing a proof like here, that’s what it looks like, great. Save yourself some time, but let’s back up. Say you want to make it. You know, perfectly in line with this and in that, what you want to do is grab your perspective tool, which can be found over here or shift. P just click it and as you can see. I’ve already kind of done some setup on this. But just so you get an idea of what to do here. This is sort of where you move the whole grid around. So if I click and drag on this point, I can move this entire thing, and I usually want. You know if I’m just gonna do one wall. I just kind of want to put it in the middle here. Line up the middle of the grid tool with whatever I’m doing and and as you can see this. This line here is a little bit low when it comes to that point. I need to come up just a tad and this one looks okay, but maybe it’s just a tad low as well. How you would handle. That is with this right here. Which goes will bring that plane up or down. See how that’s changing my grid here, and then this one will pull it out if you need to as well. So let me just kind of make a couple quick adjustments, actually. I like that. That looks really good, don’t now. This could take a while to do so just play around with these points until you get a feel for it. But this is the basic gist of it. Is that you kind of place it where you want and then sort of mess around with these points until you get this plane. That’s exactly like the shape behind it, right, So if we now all, we want to go in here to a perspective selection tool and I want to make sure that the grid that I am wanting to place my artwork in is selected. So if this is your left grid and you would only be able to place things over here. This is your right grid. You would only be able to place things over here. And then this is your horizontal grid, which we’d only be able to place things down here in this sort of green area, so we just want to do the right grid for this one. And then if I click on the artwork, you’ll see that immediately. It starts to put it inside of that grid, so as I drag it down, it will remain inside of this plane. No matter where I am, it’s going to keep it in this plane, which is really cool, because if you want to go back and change some things, you can move it around in it. It will remain the same size relative to where it is in the existence of that plane. Alright, so if I’m over here, Technically, my artwork looks smaller, but in a three-dimensional space, it would be the same size here as it would be over here, just like in the real world, right, but you want it to look legit if it’s on this so anyway, if I place it here and let go then. I’ve got these little handlers on on the corners. Here I can click, and I’m holding shift and Alt to get a even distribution of my resizing there, so I kind of just want it to be in the middle and about there. Anyway, Let’s click off of the perspective grid tool. One thing you have to do is click this little. X over here to hide the grid tool. It’s kind of annoying, but whatever and I miss it all the time. It’s very small so there that’s kind of what our our work looks like now with you having used the perspective grid tool, so you know? Leave a comment down below. Ask any questions. I love getting back to you. Guys, please, like and subscribe. And I will see you guys in the next video.
