Perspective Grid / Turn off this brush following crosshairs / Parallel perspective?

Hi,

I am pretty new in Fresco and I wanna use it for the illustration of rooms. So I need perspective grids. What I achieve so far is set up a perspective grid, respectively set up multiple line setups for various grids in 1 illustration.

My questions are:
1.
How can I turn of the annoying crosshair which is following my brush all the time? I knew it might be helpful for somebody, but for me it distracts my drawing flow.

2.
Is their an option to set up a parallel perspective? Sometimes I create isometric illustrations, and sometimes I create illustrations with 2 vanashing points which are parallel but less steep than the isometric view. Like a false perspective. For various reasons a very nice thing. Is their any possibility to create a Grid which is parallel? Do I need to import a JPG of my prepared parallel grid to use it as a base?

Thanks for your help fellow creatives 🙂

Hello!

First, no you cannot disable the perspective drawing aid, but I see where you are coming from, I find it very useful as I am not very good with perspective 🙂 but it should be your choice to have it on or off.

Second: You can only set one type of perspective per drawing (I think that's what I gathered from your question, correct me if I'm wrong).
So I don't think you can.

 

So it would be worth adding your suggestions to the feedback module in the app
(go to the app settings> then help > then bug report and feedback
Or directly go there to subit it:

Hi 🙂

Thanks a lot for your time and answer. I will explore Fresco more and collect all my suggestions and add those who seems to be useful to the suggetion section. Maybe I gonna use Fresco mainly for vector illustrations rather than drawings.



To the second question – you got me wrong, sorry for explaining my issure not clear enough and particular wrong. With parallel perspective I meant a special kind of perspective, not various types perspectives. For example isometric perspective – there is no real vanishing point, just equal angles, "Isometric art is a drawing or illustration style that makes two-dimensional figures appear three dimensional." The same technique works very well with a parallel grid, without vanashing points.

 

But in the end Fresco seems not to support something like that yet, so I have to find another way to achieve the look that I need 🙂

I explained 2. confusing, cause there is no vanashing point in my parallel perspectives, just a parallel grid, but less steep than the isometric view. Sorry for the wrong explanation.

I get you. So far, no isometric perspective. It's also lacking in illustrator (but that's a personal opinion hre 🙂 )
although I think there is a 3rd party plug-in that allows that, if I remember well (maybe something from Astute Graphics?).
If you're interested I can have a look.

 

Althought I doubt it's available in Illustrator mobile anyway. And it's a no for Fresco. The closest thing would be to set the vanishing points far enough from each other. Although more a hack than anything else.

also see if that one helps:

(but that's how you do it already I suppose)

Thanks a lot again 🙂
You are right, I am working with Adobe Illustrator for isometric illustrations ( on an computer ), which works very well for me, with some actions ( ths SSR method ) and the awesome plugin "AxoTools" from Astute Graphics, I highly recommend it for everybody 🙂 This is an example of what I do:

I might use Fresco in the future for more handdrawn vector illustrations, cause this is something I can not create the way I wanna have it currently in Adobe Illustrator. Lack of practice, Fresco feels better for drawing outlines.

The parallel perspective grid option would be a "nice to have" for projects like this ( see the example ) – objects in parallel perspective but not isometric. A 2-point perspective is not helpful here, in my opinion it is nicer to see the whole assets without perspective distortions. Sorry for my weird explanations, English is not my native language and it is still a struggle to express what I mean.

Well, we will see, I might end up with a wild mix of paper & pencil, Photoshop, Procreate and Fresco 🙂

But thanks a lot – it is a good and helpful idea to set the vannishing points far away from each other, for some illustrations that will work 🙂 Thanks for all your effords, links and tipps, I really apprechiate this 🙂
