# CUBE 2-Point Perspective with Ellipse Guideby KhoaSV

Step-by-step construction of a 2 point perspective cube. For ANI12.
Normally I wouldn't put the station point on "stage" but for the sake of all the parts being there, SP is on stage.

Update: I just fixed some minor things and added a quick guide to draw ellipses in 2-point perspective.

on first step. You draw the cone of vision 1st or the angle of 30' of station 1st??

I drew the station point first, then drew a 30 degree angle from that point to the eye level. The cone is just a result of that.

How do you get the curve dotted line that goes up from the station point?
And how do you determine where to put the station point?

Oh - I figured it out ... use a compass from the VP1 and VP2 in each case... thanks for computers, eh?

That means you need to take the length from the Sation Point to the Vanishing Point (1 or 2) and swing it up to Eye Level. I used the curved dotted line because our teacher showed us this method by using a divider, but you can use a ruler to get that length.
And Station Point can be anywhere because it's one of thing first few things you have to do. The further away the SP, the bigger your Cone of Vision gets. The Cone of Vision in this tutorial barely covers the cube, you'll often want something that's big enough to get your whole page in focus.

Whoawhoawhoawhoa! Ani12, Sjsu, John Clapp??? Were you in the 12:30 (or was it 12?) class on monday/wednesday???

Btw, your tutorial is amazingly helpful. I'm in Ani 28 right now doing cubes, and I totally forgot how to do them. This helped so much! Thank you thank you thank you!

It wasn't mentioned here, but the lines connecting to the two vanishing points should be perpendicular at SP. I'm making a fix now. When do u have 28 btw.
