Perspective Practices, ContinuedPlan viewTwo-point or angular perspective is the most common type of perspectivemethod in two-drawing.pointperspectiveTo construct two-point perspective drawings from a plan view, use this table:Step1234567891011ActionDraw the horizon line and ground line (figure 5-16. view A).Draw the picture plane line near the top of your paper so that it isout of the way of the perspective drawing.Draw an arbitrary perpendicular line from the corner where theobject touches the picture plane (point 0) to locate the stationpoint. Place the station point at a distance not less than twice thetotal width of the object from point O (figure 5-16, view Draw the plan view of the object.Draw a line from the station point parallel to the side of the planview where it intersects the picture plane (OB).Draw a perpendicular line from 1 to the horizon line to locate theright vanishing point (VPR).Draw a line from the station point parallel to the side (OA) of theplan view to where it intersects the picture plane at (2).Draw a perpendicular line from 2 to the horizon line to locate theleft vanishing point (VPL). The angle formed by the lines drawnfrom the station point to points 1 and 2 is equal to 90°.Draw lines from the corners of the plan view (O, A. C) to thestation point (figure view C).Project perpendicular lines from where these lines intersect thepicture plane downward to the ground line.From point the intersection of line OSP, and the ground line.extend visual rays to both vanishing points to define the lower baseof the object.Continued on next page
