Checkerboard in 2 point perspective

all ART-I lessons

Place a Horizon line and two Vanishing points.

If you draw a checkerboard in 2 point perspective - the closest part of the board is the front corner.

Place a dot to represent this front corner.

Add depth by drawing two receding lines starting at this corner and going to the vanishing points.


Now - work with one side at a time.

We need to place the marks on one of the receding lines so that they look as if they are spaced out evenly.

The best way to do that is to use the "posts" method.


Draw 9 post (starting in the corner point) using the "posts" method.

Repeat the steps on the other side.

Erase the posts, but leave the marks on the receding lines.

Connect the marks with the vanishing points.
