Hi Tom here, in this week’s Circle Line Art School video I’ll show you one way to draw using three-point perspective,

looking down on a building ,in this drawing, as we’re looking down, we can

draw the horizon line towards the top of the paper as the horizon line is the

height of our eyeline and we’re not looking up, so nothing will be above the

horizon line, but we are looking down, next, we need two vanishing points on

this horizon line far apart, a vanishing point is a point in perspective where

two parallel lines will look like they meet if they were to continue, so in this

drawing we’re looking right and we’re also looking left, but we’re also looking

down, so we’ve got a vanishing point on the right for looking right, we’ve got a

vanishing point on the left for looking left, and now we need to draw another

vanishing point low down on the page, towards the middle, sometimes it’s best

to even go beyond the edge of the page, further away and this will be our third

vanishing point, now we have our three vanishing points for this drawing using

three-point perspective, next draw a dot somewhere in the middle

of these three vanishing points and this dot can represent the nearest corner of

the building that we will draw, from this dot we can draw a straight line towards

the left and another towards the right vanishing points, then on the right hand

line, the line going to the right vanishing point, somewhere along there, we

can draw another line to the left vanishing point, and from

the left line going to the left vanishing point, somewhere along this

line, we can draw another line to the right vanishing point, and by doing this

we now have a simple rectangle which will be the top of a flat roof in

two-point perspective, because we’re just using two points at the moment,

next draw three straight lines from the corners of your rectangle going down to

the third vanishing point, choose how tall you want the building to

be and mark on the middle line, that’s going down, a point, a dot and then draw a

straight line from this dot to the left vanishing point and another straight

line to the right vanishing point, now our rectangle that we drew in two-point

perspective, the top of the roof, has become a cuboid in three point

perspective, because we’re looking left, we’re looking right, but we’re also

looking straight down, all at the same time! and that’s why we’re using three

point perspective in this drawing, remember the horizon line is at the top

of the paper and this line shows the height of our eye line and the building

is below the horizon line, this block which will turn into the buildings, below

the horizon line, because we’re looking down and the third vanishing point is

needed so that we can know where these lines, as say go away from us, they get

closer together and eventually following the principle of perspective the lines

will look like they meet and we’ll need to have a dot where these lines meet and

this dot is our vanishing point, our third vanishing point, all the lines in this

drawing follow these basic principles of three point perspective, if you would
