Two Point Perspective House

Due at the beginning of class on 2/6/15

Create a House in 2 Point Perspective.  The house MUST include the following:

    • Pitched Roof
    • Chimney
    • 2 windows (with window sills)
    • 2 doors (1 open garage door with thickness + 1 door with casings(frame) )
    • 1 driveway (in single point perspective)
    • 1 pathway (in single point perspective)2
    • You must keep your VP's visible
    • You must keep your dotted lines (for easier grading!)
  1. Make sure to "dot" your unseen sides to the house (ie, the ones in the back of the box) You will need the back of your house in order to do the next step
  2. To create the pitch of the roof, draw LIGHT diagonals on both of the end panels of the house (box)  from corner to corner.
  3. At the left side panel, where the diagonals meet in the middle (creating an X), lay down your ruler vertically through the middle of the X and pick a point above the house to establish the top of the roof.  Draw a dot.
  4. Connect the dot by drawing a line from the dot to each corner of the house.  You now should have a triangle. The original dot is now the apex of the roof
  5. Connect the apex to the far right VP by drawing a line (this is now the roof line)
  6. At the right side panel, follow directions for 3 & 4 above.


Remember that the chimney is just another 2 point perspective box!  The only difference is that in order to make the chimney come out of the roof (instead of floating above it) you need to do the following:

  1.  Place your ruler along the angled line that connects the apex of the roof to the right side of the house (see 4 above).
  2. Slide your ruler at the same angle until the ruler meets up with the bottom corner of the left front of the chimney
  3. Draw a line from the bottom corner up the roof until it hits the back line that creates the side of the chimney. VOILA!

HINT: Make sure both your VPs are horizontal

REMEMBER:  Verticals stay vertical!  That applies to the sides of your windows and doors!  

Extra credit:  Color with colored pencil or add extra stuff (fence, windows, bricks)  Do something extra! Extra credit is given only for extra stuff that is executed well! The extra items must be in perspective though!
