# How to Draw a House in Two Point Perspective: Modern House

Hi, Tom here and welcome to my new Circle Line Art School video, How to Draw a Modern House in 2-Point Perspective: Please subscribe for a new video every

Saturday! Start by drawing a horizontal line

slightly below the middle of your paper, this is the horizon line which is the

height of the eye of the viewer, it’s the same height as the eye of the person

looking at the view, next we can draw a vanishing point, a dot on the far left

and the far right of this horizontal line, in two-point perspective all of the

parallel lines going left will meet at the left vanishing point and all of the

parallel lines ago right will meet at the right vanishing point, next draw a

vertical line a little bit left of the centre of your page, this will be the

nearest corner of our building, now we can draw a diagonal line from the top of

this vertical line to the right vanishing point and another to the left

vanishing point, next draw two more diagonal lines from

the base of our vertical line, so now we have the left and right side of our

building, we can add a vertical line to the left to show whether building stops and another vertical line to the right,

all vertical lines in this drawing need to be parallel to each other and

parallel to the edge of the paper… to draw a floating flat roof we need two more diagonal lines going to the right vanishing point, and we can take these two lines to the left

vanishing point too, and now we can just mark a small

vertical line on the left, and the right of these new diagonal lines, to show

where the edge of the roof is, next, from this point on the left we can draw a diagonal line all of the way to the right vanishing point, but we only need the

first part of the line, just here, so, again from this point we can draw a

diagonal line to the left vanishing point, but we only need to use the first

bit of the line for our drawing, so now we have drawn the back of this floating

roof at the top of our building, next we can draw two more diagonal lines to the

right and left vanishing points, now, where the left diagonal line touches

the left horizontal line we can draw, from that point, a diagonal line to the right, on the right diagonal, line we can draw a

short vertical line here, next, from the left vanishing point we

can draw a diagonal from the top of this short vertical line, going right for a

bit, and now draw another vertical line going down, below the base of the

original building… going back to our short vertical line, we can draw a diagonal from its base going to the left vanishing point, but we only need this

line to this point here, I will darken these lines, so that we

can see what we have drawn, we now have an overhang on the left and

an extension on the right, I’ll darken this vertical line too, next draw another

vertical line from the back of the house here, and now we can make a new base line

by drawing a diagonal line from the left vanishing point, again let’s dark the

lines,so that we can see what we have… now draw a diagonal line from the top and the bottom of this new horizontal line to the vanishing

point on the right, for the right-hand side of the extension… next we can draw a vertical line here for the right-hand side of the building… I think it’s time to darken these lines, for this drawing I’m using a 4B pencil,

so now our drawing is starting to take shape we can clearly see how the two

vanishing points help us find the sides of the walls of the building, if you think about two-point perspective

drawing and using the two points, the two vanishing points, and that’s how you

create the guidelines and along those guidelines, these diagonal lines, going to the two vanishing points, they will show us where

the sides of any building will go to… so we could just erase some of the

guidelines that we no longer need… now on the right we can add some lines

to create a border thickness to this wall… and by drawing two diagonal lines to the

left vanishing point we can find the back of the wall I will use this vertical line to work

out where the back corner of this back part of the wall is,

just draw a diagonal from the right vanishing point through the top of this

vertical line and a line for the base here, again going to the right vanishing

point, time to make some of these lines darker again, so that we can see what we

have! we can repeat this interior space on the

left-hand side of the building, this time the diagonal lines will go to the left

vanishing point rather than the right… I have used the left base vertical line

to find the back vertical line of this new space, just so the building looks the

way I would like it to look, again it’s a good idea to just darken the lines once

we know they’re in the right place… I will add some windows or

sliding doors to the left wall here, using the left vanishing point… as I divide this shape the vertical

lines will get closer together as they go towards the vanishing point… we can add some more windows and doors, keep your the vertical lines parallel to each other and to the side edge of our paper, and in this 2-point perspective

drawing, all of the diagonal lines go either to the left or right vanishing point, next I’ll add some tone to this drawing,

all of the overhanging shapes will be dark, all shapes on the left of the side of

the building will be a mid-tone and the shapes on the right-hand side of each

part of the building will be just the white of the paper, so we’ll have three

tones, the white of the paper, a mid-tone and a dark tone… and so the next stage of this drawing is just to add some tone, the three tones that we just outlined, the white of the

paper, a mid-tone and a dark tone, I think I’ll also add another building on the

left hand-side, using the same principles of 2-Point Perspective… I post a new drawing every Saturday!

😃Wow that's very nice you are amazing 👍👍👏

Excelente. Gracias.

It took me 1hours and it turn out beautyfull thxx😍

Thank You For Helping me Draw a modern house 🙂

Aldo it didn’t come out PERFECT and i used HB pencil instead of 4B it still came out really cool

Awesome, Fantastic, Amazing, Fabulous & Beautiful!!

Super bro

Thank you very much!!!!!!

Thankyou so much i got A+🙂🙂🙂🙂😊😊😊😊

WOW!!! It's just AMAZING!!! fabulous art. A lot of patience is required to do these kind of artworks.

You are the best
