Two Point Perspective
A graphic system that gives the illusion of three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional surface.

Relative Size
Parallel Lines
Receding Lines
Vanishing Point
Horizon Line
The Keys to Linear Perspective
Who shrunk the Eiffel Tower?
Lines that never intersect
Parallel Lines
Lines that appear to go back in space and meet at a specific point.
Receding Lines
The point (or points) on the horizon line where things seem to disappear.
Receding lines meet at the vanishing point.
Vanishing Point
Note: The horizon line is not always visible in a picture.
Divides the ground and the sky and shows the viewer’s eye level.
Horizon Line
Vanishing points may not always appear on the paper
Low Horizon Line
Emphasizes the sky and background
Central Horizon Line
Emphasizes the middle-ground
High Horizon Line
Emphasizes the foreground and ground
Shows depth because objects appear smaller as they get further from the viewer’s eye.
Relative Size
Playing with Relative size
It gives the viewer a frame of reference.
How does Linear Perspective affect relative size?
Which monster is larger?
One-Point Perspective
Has only one vanishing point.
The front of objects are drawn “normally” with parallel vertical and horizontal lines.
The sides of objects appear in perspective using receding lines.
Receding lines are usually
parallel in reality.
Vanishing points may not always appear on the paper
How does Linear Perspective affect relative size?
Which monster is larger?
Two-Point Perspective
Has two vanishing points.
All sides are drawn in perspective.
Verticals stay vertical (parallel).
No horizontals except on the horizon line
