Here, you will learn to make perspective drawings with two vanishing points, with a bird’s eye view. To see something with a bird’s eye view means to see something from above, as if you were a bird.

Rule

- 1.
- Draw a horizon line (Color A) and mark two points, which you call ${F}_{1}$ and ${F}_{2}$.
- 2.
- From ${F}_{1}$, draw four lines towards the lower-right corner. You decide the distance between these four lines (Color B). Name the lines 1, 2, 3 and 4. Line 1 is on top.
- 3.
- From ${F}_{2}$, draw four lines towards the lower-left corner. You decide the distance between these four lines (Color B). Name the lines 5, 6, 7 and 8. Line 5 is on top.
- 4.
- Find the intersection between Line 1 and Line 5. Then find the intersection between Line 2 and Line 6. Draw a line between these two intersection points (Color C).
- 5.
- Find the intersection between Line 3 and Line 5. Then find the intersection between Line 4 and Line 6. Draw a line between these two intersection points (Color C).
- 6.
- Find the intersection between Line 1 and Line 7. Then find the intersection between Line 2 and Line 8. Draw a line between these two intersection points (Color C).
- 7.
- Find the intersection between Line 3 and Line 7. Then find the intersection between Line 4 and Line 8. Draw a line between these two intersection points (Color C).
- 8.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(1,5)$ and $(3,5)$.
- 9.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(2,6)$ and $(4,6)$.
- 10.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(1,7)$ and $(3,7)$.
- 11.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(2,8)$ and $(4,8)$.
- 12.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(1,5)$ and $(1,7)$.
- 13.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(2,6)$ and $(2,8)$.
- 14.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(3,5)$ and $(3,7)$.
- 15.
- Draw a line between intersection points $(4,6)$ and $(4,8)$.
