Tag: two points perspective

Drawing of buildings view using two point perspective which is also called linear perspective. Two point perspective is a method of making a 3d perspective view on a 2d surface. In this two point perspective we place two points on the horizon and makes the 3d environment by using those two points on the horizon.

Horizon placed on the eye view and make drawing accordingly, the horizon line change according the to the eye view, when the eye view goes up or top view the horizon line also goes up and the eye view goes down so the horizon line also goes down. these drawings of buildings are made by using two point perspective and the slightly areal view. In this drawings the lines have been shown to teach you how to draw a building by using two points perspective.

If you have ever observed while standing on the road and see at the end of the road the buildings or trees look smaller towards the horizon line and at a certain point, which is called vanishing point. Here you will learn how to draw two and three points perspective on the paper by placing two and three vanishing points.

Two points perspective
Make a horizon line below the half of the paper where you will start drawing any view, define two points on the horizon line one at the extreme right and one at extreme left side, these points are called vanishing points.

Start drawing and first draw road by using both the points as shown in the drawing. Keep in mind that all the vertical lines will go straight parallel to each other, and all horizontal lines will come from the vanishing points.

After making lines for road on both side by using the points you will get one corner. Start drawing buildings from there, and draw one vertical straight line towards the sky, define the height then draw one line from the top of that line towards the left vanishing point and draw second line towards the right point, same repeat at the bottom of the vertical line. Now draw width and depth by drawing the two line vertically from right and left, you will get the 3d view of first building in outline.

By following these four lines you can draw all the buildings behind this front building at both the side. You can also make low height and high rise buildings accordingly. And make the composition as seen in the view. Now draw other elements if required like light pole, trees vehicles etc.

Three points perspective
Make a horizon line at the three forth of the page at above define three vanishing points two at the horizon line and one at the bottom in thee center as given in the drawing. This will make the triangle. Drawing the top view and bottom view we use three points perspective drawings. Here I am telling you about top view.

It is the same as two point perspective but only difference between two points perspective and three points perspective is that we draw all vertical lines from top to bottom pointing bottom vanishing point, and if we drawing the bottom view the all vertical line will point towards the third vanishing point define at the top.
