Two Point Perspective Assignment


Hello class

Here is the聽Foundations DRAWING SP17 – WEEK 12 assignment. 聽Again you must remember to always begin with the HORIZON LINE… then frame the composition… then establish your the VANISHING POINTS. 聽Keep in mind your VANISHING POINTS DO NOT NEED TO BE WITHIN THE PICTURE PLANE.


Practice drawing a simple house in two point perspective. 聽Then, start to add more complex features: a chimney, trees, a pattern on the sides or roof of the house etc.


Also be sure to do the reading CHAPTER 5聽of creative perspective … its in the post below!聽

Here is an example of a City in two point perspective, similar to your homework assignment. 聽Feel free to use reference images and imagination to draw your city of the past or future!



For morse helpful hints read watch the videos in the post below!


Creative Perspective Chapter 4


Hello Class! 聽Welcome to ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE!

To create a聽drawing from聽One Point Perspective you need to know a few basic things.聽One Point Perspective聽is also called聽Parallel Perspective聽because YOU are parallel to the objects that you will be drawing. Also, vertical lines are parallel and horizontal lines are parallel and the back edges of objects that recede in the distance are parallel to the front edges of those objects.


Below is your required reading of the week.




Creative Perspective Chapter 5


Hello Class! 聽Welcome to the聽exciting world of TWO聽POINT PERSPECTIVE!



One Point Perspective聽or聽Parallel Perspective point perspective works well for situations like the one below, where the viewer is oriented directly in front of a set of parallel lines like railroad tracks or a long hallway.



But what if you want to show the viewer something from an angle?



Two point perspective uses two vanishing points set well apart on the horizon line. The rule of thumbs here is sets of parallel lines must be either vertical or recede toward one of the two vanishing points.

READ CHAPTER 5 of聽Creative layout for Artists to learn more!

Hector’s favorite place, Drawing

The place I chose to draw is my grandfathers old house. I have my best and worst memories on this house which is why this is my favorite place. This house is old so聽it’s 聽going to be taken down and replaced with a “new and better” house. I was proud I drew the house the best I could but I still feel like I can do better so I plan on drawing it聽as often as I can before my time is up and gets taken down.

Melanie Martinez One Point Perspective

The place I chose to draw is my house’s livingroom because it’s the single room that brings everyone together. This room is meaningful because it’s the first place I see when I wake up in the morning and the last place I find myself at the end of the day. It’s the single place in the house where you can sit down to eat, to talk, to watch a movie, to argue and to talk about life. Four walls full of positive, negative memories.

The place that I chose to draw that was special to me was my aunt house because to me that is my second home. 聽When I was little, my mom would always drop me off at my aunt house before going to work every night. 聽Around the holiday season especially Christmas I would always spend tye night at my aunt house waking up the next day on Christmas day. 聽Even now that I’m older I would always go over there to visit and it’s funny because now I have the keys to the house. 聽There will never be a home like this ever again.聽
