### Start with the Horizon

Once you're confident with drawing basic boxes in one-point perspective and two-point perspective, drawing a pyramid is quite easy.

Begin with a horizon line, vanishing point, and draw the front edge of the pyramid base. Draw your vanishing lines, then add the back edge of the pyramid base, just judging by eye how far back it ought to go. Make sure it is parallel to your horizon line. I've begun two examples above.

### Finding the Center of the Base

To find the center of the base, you simply draw a line between each pair of diagonal corners. Depending on where your pyramid base is in relation to the horizon line, this might look quite odd - one line may be quite a bit shorter than the other - but rest assured that where they cross is the center of the pyramid base.

### Draw a Pyramid in 2-point perspective

Begin by drawing your horizon line, and placing the front corner of your pyramid. (Remember, in two-point perspective, the object is turned at an angle, so we begin with a front corner rather than a parallel side). For best results, make your vanishing points as wide apart as possible. Draw the vanishing lines from the front corner to the vanishing points.
