How to Draw a Basic Two-Point Perspective
On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Jacklyn Laflamme and I'm a professional artist. In this clip, I'm going to show you the basic principles for drawing two-point perspective. So we’re going to just draw a line across here which is going to be representative of our horizon line. And we’re going to just do a little mark here and a little mark here. This one here, we’re going to call vanishing point-one and vanishing point-two. So basically, the principle is that when we go to draw our cube, all the lines are going to go to this vanishing point. So here's the example.
We’re going to start drawing a line back here and if you picture the line. It would go back here to the vanishing point. Then we’re going to take another line and draw it back here and then in here. And again, this line would end up going to the vanishing point. And to complete our cube, we’re going to have to put in two more lines. Again, this line here would end up going back to the vanishing point-one and likewise with the backline. So you’ll get the concept.
Now when drawing our cube, we’re going to bring one more line down here. Bring this line down to this point and another line down here and again, the same concept. With this line going back to the vanishing point and again, the line on this side heading back to vanishing point-two. I'm going to bring these lines down here and now you can see the beginnings of our cube.
So now if we want to do a cut out in the cube just to further demonstrate the point, we can do two more lines. Again, both these lines matching up with vanishing point-one and we’ll connect this line here and bring it down. Then we have our last line here to show the cut out in the cube and again always going back to the vanishing point. So that’s how you get your basic perspective because eventhough you would think that it should be the exact same size going all the way across. We’re always looking off into the distance to the vanishing points. And that’s how you do a basic two-point perspective.
