How to draw a Pyramid in 1 point and 2 point perspective

As I already mentioned it one of my latest post most, or maybe even all of the figures drawn in perspective are based on a rectangle of some kind.

Same with a pyramid.

This is a wonderful and simple explanation on how to draw a pyramid in 1PP.

I based the 2PP Pyramid on the same tutorial.

After completing this task I decided to draw a pyramid based on a triangle. And this is a bit more complicated than doing a rectangle based one.

This is a 1PP Pyramid.

And a 2PP Pyramid.

Did you manage to create yours? Did it go well or were there any difficulties?

Learning while illustrating.

One of the things that I like the most about illustrating is beside the fact that I constantly learn how to draw new stuff I also get some general knowledge.

Resently I've been working on my Rosh haShana greeting card and I started reading - again - about the Shofar, a horn that Jews blow into after their annual holiday prayer. It appears that only a hollow horn can be called a shoffar - which is kind of obvious - and the process of preparing it for use is pretty time consuming.

This is my last year's Rosh HaShana card.

Wishing you all a Happy upcoming holiday.
