You should draw two views showing the object in different positions. See example below.

This perspective is more difficult than previous examples because the lid is set at an angle.
   
   

Draw the basis box shape, estimating the position of the two vanishing points. Remember, with estimated perspective the vanishing points are outside the margins of the paper. Guidelines are projected to non-existent vanishing points.

   
 
     

Draw the angled edge of the lid. This is sketched in position and distances are estimated. Guidelines for this part are not projected to any vanishing points.

   

The top edge of the lid projected to the right hand vanishing point. The angle of the far edge of the lid is drawn at an estimated angle.

Simple hinges are added. Notice that the hinges are drawn with the aid of guidelines projected back to the right hand side vanishing point.

   
   

Add the crest of arms / picture to the lid. Start by drawing a faint square / rectangle and fit the picture inside it.

   

Add colour and shade. Look at the previous sheets regarding shading woods, and plastics.
