Charlie: “This is a pic of a man waving to his neighbor. The houses and the road follow the rules of perspective, extending towards the vanishing point. Follow the steps below to make pictures following the rules of perspective!”

“I actually did this for my Teacher of the Day at school. It was perspectacular!!”

Step 1. Make a horizon.

Step 2. Choose a vanishing point.

Step 3. Make your main objects.

Step 4. Use a ruler and start at point of view & get farther extending towards vanishing point.

Step 5. Give details to your drawing, respecting lines of perspective.

Here are some dictionary definitions!



The art of drawing solid objects on a two-dimensional surface so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.

Van·ish·ing Point
The point at which something that has been growing smaller or increasingly faint disappears altogether.

Ho·ri·zon (noun)

The line at which the earth’s surface and the sky appear to meet.

    I’m going to have to use this for Charlie’s cousin…I’ve explained perspective to him but this is so much better!
