Sorry for reviving this old thread, but I don't wanna clutter the forum by starting another new thread.

This post is also about 3-point perspective, but of a slightly different nature.

Pls find below a quick sketch of a typical 3-point setup of a skyscraper.

The eye level is the horizontal line at the bottom and the sets of vanishing points are indicated by the "Xs":

Now, I add another building to the left of this building:

Now, you see the problem: the new building (B) LOOKS DISTORTED!

I thought I understand 3-point perspective pretty well until a friend asked me this question the other day regarding his work, and I was totally thrown off and puzzled myself!

In 1 point perspective, there can only be 1 vanishing point, right?

In 2 point, there can be many sets of vanishing points (I'm 100% confident about this) on the same eye level.

In 3 point perspective, there can be many sets of vanishing points on the same eye level (just like 2 point), but what about that vanishing point at the top ("Zenith")? Can there be multiple vanishing points at the top for 3-point perspective?

Thanks!
