### 2 point perspective

1. 1. TWO POINTPERSPECTIVE
2. 2. TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE: What and Why?Perspective is the way in which objects appear to the eyebased on the way they go back into space.2 point perspective allows you to draw perspective objects atan angle - not just straight on like one point perspective.Mastering 2 point perspective drawing will give you the infoyou need for drawing more interesting things.
3. 3. BEFORE WE START: Helpful Hints•  Materials – always use a ruler, pencil and a good eraser for perspective drawing•  Draw lightly – you’ll need to erase part of your drawing so don’t press too hard with your pencil•  Pay attention – perspective drawing is one of the most difficult concepts in Studio Art•  Have patience – keep trying, even when you’re frustrated•  Practice, Practice, Practice – it takes a long time to master a concept! Practice = knowledge•  Color Coding Tutorial = vanishing point; red = a new line, = a new piece we’ve added to the drawing. Watch for these arrows to help you along the way!
4. 4. Skills Workshop: 2 Point Perspective•  Steps•  Example
5. 5. STEP 1: Draw the horizon line HORIZON LINERemember: Horizon Line: An imaginary horizontal line,sometimes referred to as eye level, which divides your line ofvision when you look straight ahead. The place off in thedistance where the sky meets together with the earth.
6. 6. ANOTHER NOTE ON PERSPECTIVE: Objects Above and Below The Horizon LINEBelow the Horizon Line Above the Horizon Line Use when you want to Use when you want to make it look like you’re make it look like you’restanding above an object standing below an object
7. 7. STEP 2: Add in 2 vanishing points Vanishing Vanishing Point 1 Point 2Vanishing Point: the point on the horizon line where all of yourangular perspective lines will come together. For this tutorial,place your vanishing point on opposite sides of the horizon line.
8. 8. STEP 3: Draw vertical guidelineUsing your ruler, add in a vertical line that will help begin yourcube in 2 point perspective. For this tutorial, place yours abovethe horizon line. This means we will be able to see 2 sides andthe bottom of the object.
9. 9. STEP 4: Draw perspective lines All perspective 2 Vanishing Point 1Perspective Lines: Straight lines, drawn at an angle from theedges of objects, back into space, until they finally cometogether at one of the two vanishing points.Remember, every non-vertical line must converge on one of thetwo vanishing points
10. 10. STEP 5: Add in vertical length and width lines Width Length Line LineVertical Length and Width Lines: Straight up-and-down linesthat define how long and how wide your object will be.
11. 11. STEP 6: Draw in bottom perspective lines Start from Start from bottom of vertical bottom of and extend to opposite vertical and vanishing point extend to oppositevanishing point Lines intersect, making the bottom, farthest away cornerStarting at the bottom point of the one of the vertical lines you justadded, draw a line that extends to the opposite vanishing point.Repeat this same action, using the bottom point of the other verticalline you just added, extending to the opposite vanishing point. Thelines should cross, making the furthest away corner of the undersideof your object.
12. 12. STEP 7: Erase unnecessary linesErase all your perspective guidelines that are not part of your object.
13. 13. STEP 8: Congratulate Yourself!You’ve just made a cube in 2 point perspective!
14. 14. STEP 8: Practice Makes PerfectOn your own, try making more cubes in 2 point perspective. Tryone on the horizon line, one below the horizon line and another above the horizon line.
15. 15. Now that you know the basics of two point perspective, use yourknowledge in many combinations to create objects that look like they go back into space.
16. 16. CLASSWORK: Practice•  Practice two point perspective using the handout that has been started for you•  Turn the already started lines into blocks in 2 point perspective
