Sketchbook HB Pencil Eraser Ruler
One-Point Perspective = Linear Perspective – Everything (All lines) go to one point: the vanishing point.
The choice of where to put the horizon is unlimited; it does not have to be centered.
Place one point on the horizon, all lines then go to this point.
Two–Point Perspective – uses 2 vanishing points on the horizon.
Looks more natural then 1-point perspective.
Used to show objects from the side, enabling the viewer to see two sides.
In your sketchbook, using pencil, complete the following exercises:
(refer to the handout given in class as a guide, or click here to view a PDF of the handout: perspective handout)
Part 1. Draw a cube above the horizon line.
Part 2. Draw a cube below the horizon line.
Part 3. Draw a cube that overlaps the horizon line.
Part 4. Using block lettering, draw your name, each letter should use the same vantage point.
Part 5. Draw a cityscape that includes a road with buildings lining each side.
Part 6. Draw a cube above the horizon line.
Part 7. Draw a cube below the horizon line.
Part 8. Draw a cube that overlaps the horizon line.
Part 9. Using block lettering, draw your first initial, (if you want to challenge your self, try drawing your whole first name using two-point).
Part 10. Draw a building with windows, a staircase, and a sidewalk.
