Sketching sceneries, buildings and what-not and making it look realistic sounds like a complicated affair. While sketching roughly, the drawing looks just about right but not as precise as reality. That’s where the perspectives come into play. To read about how to draw in one point perspective and vanishing points in detail, check out this link – How to draw in One Point Perspective?
In two point perspective, two vanishing points are used. Imagine standing at a crossroad and looking at the building in the corner that you are facing. Now, there will be two roads moving away from you. These two roads, as far as your eyes could see, will end in vanishing points. Here, we do not consider the other two roads that’s behind you. In this case, the horizontal lines of the buildings are drawn in relation to these 2 vanishing points. Note that in One Point Perspective, all the planes facing the observer will be straight or flat. Whereas in Two Point Perspective, angles are at play.
Let’s see how to draw a simple cottage house in two point perspective.
Step 1: Draw a horizon line and place two points at each ends. These will be our two vanishing points. Draw a straight line and connect to the vanishing points as shown. This will be the edge of the house that’s closer to the observer.
Step 2: Draw two more vertical lines one on each side of the first line that’s drawn. These will be the other two edges. Note that each horizontal line that’s drawn will end in either of the vanishing points while the vertical lines stay straight and parallel.
I will finish up the cottage with little more details, some trees and bushes.
