Three Point Perspective

Three Point Perspective uses two vanishing points on a horizon (where sky and earth meet),two point perspective, with the addition of a third point to be used with your vertical axis (y-axis). Orthogonal lines are drawn outwards from each point. This break from parallel vertical lines can have a very dramatic effect on your drawing.  Used subtly, the third point perspective lines can creates some very nice results in any drawing.

Two Point Perspective Setup Tip: In the first example below, all three vanishing points are shown in the work area. Don't be constrained by your page! One, two, or all three vanishing points can be placed outside of your work area. The second image shows an example of this.Perspective examplesPerspective examples 2
