Graphic Communication 2 Point Perspective CDT Department
2 Point Perspective • 2 point perspective drawings are a type of pictorial drawing. • They are a realistic drawing of an object showing it as if it were disappearing towards 2 vanishing points in the distance.
2 Point Perspective These are the 2 vanishing points we will use to construct the drawing. Vanishing Point Right (VPR) Vanishing Point Left (VPL) All depths in the drawing will be projected towards these 2 points.
2 Point Perspective This line is the front of the shape. All heights in the drawing must be drawn vertically.
2 Point Perspective We will now project the base of the shape back to each of the vanishing points.
2 Point Perspective Now project the top of the shape back to each of the vanishing points.
2 Point Perspective Now project the back of the shape back to each of the vanishing points. You cannot make accurate measurements using a ruler when drawing a perspective drawing. Instead estimate the sizes by using a suitable proportion of sizes in the drawing.
2 Point Perspective Now project the heights from the top of the shape down to the base Remember, all heights in the drawing must be drawn vertically.
2 Point Perspective You shown now darken in the outline of your shape.
2 Point Perspective • All depths go to one of the vanishing points. • All heights are drawn vertically. • You cannot measure lengths. Instead estimate all distances, being careful to keep your drawing in a good proportion.
