    Hi Chou-Tac, if a cube is in 1-point perspective, you won’t be able to see the outside of its sides and in 2-point perspective, you won’t be able to see any 90 degree corners.

      Hello Rene, I am not sure I understand what you mean. Do you mind reformulate ?

      Thank you 🙂

        I mean, if viewed from 1-point perspective, we can only see only 1 side of the cube.
        If we can see more than 1 side, it will be 2-point or 3-point perspectives, then the sides that we can see will no longer be a perfect square.

          What you say it’s true. 1 point perspective is actually a simplified version of 2-point perspective. As well as 2-point perspective is a simplified version of the 3 point perspective.

          Basically we should draw everything with 3 points ! Haha. But in sketching, we like to use method that makes our life easier. 2 and 3 point are the most common perspective I use. But 1 is convenient for a room, a street with no high building for example.
