Drawing Bird’s Eye View with Two Vanishing Points

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.

Instructions for a Bird’s Eye Perspective with Two Vanishing Points

1.
Draw a horizon line (Color A) and mark two points, which you call F1 and F2.
2.
From F1, 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 F2, 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).
