The Best Way to Draw Two-Point Perspective
by:

Perspective drawing, a way to represent an image to appear real in a plane surface is divided into many categories. Each category refers to the number of vanishing point(s) that happens to be involved. In my previous article, I revealed to you tips on how to draw one-point perspective. As a related topic we are going to tackle steps on how to draw two-point perspective.

The main distinction between the two is that two-point perspective projects two vanishing points while one-point perspective as indicated in their names, has only one. Two-point is an exact picture viewed from a corner of your image or a rotated view of your one-point perspective.

Draw a Horizon Line

Now, first step is to have our two-point perspective drawing we are to create first our horizon line. This line is a linear portion where the eye-sight of the viewer will be leveled. It is the division that indicates whether what portion of an object should be visible, in which the sky along with the ground meets and vanish.

Choose Two Vanishing Point

And then, were going to proceed now to the next step. Your two vanishing points are where your image became invisible. These are generally points where your parallel lines meet on both sides. It is crucial to select the best position for the two of these points. The gap between the two will greatly affect the final appearance of your drawing. Probably the most excellent option for your vanishing points is on someplace where your image fits the middle spot of your paper.

Draw the Sets of Orthogonal Lines

Next, for the third step is that you have to now draw sets of orthogonal lines. These are generally sets lines radiated from each vanishing points. Orthogonal lines are perpendicular to any vertical lines in the picture plane used to give shape or temporary sketch to your drawing.

Draw Transversal Lines and Curves

After you draw orthogonal lines, go on drawing transverse lines. Transverse lines are lines perpendicular on the orthogonal lines. Since parallel planes are seldom found in two-point perspective drawing only vertical lines are use for temporary sketching. So it will be best to draw curves and oblique lines in our piece. Curves and oblique lines are sometimes drawn to have the best replica of the model to be drawn.

After drawing the guidelines we are now ready for the final retouch. Significant lines must redrawn to become broader and the guidelines must then be erased. Add…
