### Basic 2 Point Perspective

1. 1. Two Point Perspective• Two-point perspective is useful to show an angle rather than face-on. Most lines are vertical or orthogonals drawn to two different vanishing points.
2. 2. Steps for a Two point perspective drawing• Follow the step by step tutorial so you can understand how to draw using two vanishing points.
3. 3. Step 1• 1. Turn your paper so its orientation is landscape.
4. 4. Step 2• Draw a horizontal line 40-50 mm down from top of the page. This is your horizon line.
5. 5. Step 3• Draw two dots on your horizon line near the edges of the paper. These are your vanishing points.
6. 6. Step 4• Draw a vertical line that is the "front edge" of your form.
7. 7. Step 5• Connect the two ends of your "front edge" line to each vanishing point. These are called orthogonals. Draw lightly so you can erase!
8. 8. Step 6 • Draw two vertical lines between theorthogonals where you want the back edges of your form. Remember: In two-pointperspective most lines are either vertical or orthongonals. There are rarely horizontal lines in two-point perspective!
9. 9. Step 7 • Now join the back, top corners to theopposite vanishing point to complete the top of the form.
10. 10. Step 8• Erase the extra orthogonals. Now you have a form drawn in two-point perspective!
11. 11. Step 9• Add details and experiment!
