Space Station Hallway - Five Point Perspective (Rough)

Started this in a perspective class with pencils on a looong sheet of animation paper. It got so complex though that it made more sense just to continue it digitally (hence the different types of lines here and there). I also started an ink version, but decided it didn't quite look the way I wanted it to. Still, I overlayed it into this image to hone in some details. Still in the rough stages, but I'm going to eventually paint this out and use it for a brief animation.

For those who don't know, five point perspective is used to emulate a point of view turning 180 degrees. You see only part of the image as it pans across to the other side, making it seem like the camera has turned in place. In other words, the two ends of the hallway you see are actually opposite ends of the same straight-line hallway. Also called "banana pans," they are used sometimes in 2D animation (and even in 3D or matte painting on occasion).

  1. That pic is awesome! I gotta try this thing you call "5-point perspective". I simply can't believe how good at perspective you are. I'm envious.
