We draw with perspective drawing techniques in order to make a more realistic 3-dimensional object. In this technique, every set of parallel lines has its own vanishing points.
More specifically, when we are drawing or viewing something in 2 point perspective, we are seeing the object at a corner, and the 2 sets of parallel lines are moving away from us to the vanishing points….as you see above (vp stands for vanishing points). Here is a Basic 1 Point and 2 Point Perspective Lesson and Here is an Intro Lesson to Perspective.
This chateau castle tutorial is cleaned up a bit from a very old book so that is why the imagery is a bit old looking. A chateau is a house or castle that is owned by the lord or nobility of a manor...especially in French regions. Chateaus often look like castles, as you will see with the chateau below.
Hold a box in your hand in such a position that you only see the front and top of it. Observe that as we view the top, its outer edges appear to converge. This condition is caused by an optical illusion. As the top turns away from us, the relationship between the length and width changes or diminishes. This phenomenon is known as foreshortening. Observe also that as we look at the face of the box, it is seen in its true form. The reason for this is that it is perpendicular to our line of vision.
