    You have the plan of your object in front of the picture plane, it should be behind it.

    hi mate thanx for the links..... but is that essential to keep the object behind the picture plane ? in my book in all examples the object is infront of the picture plane.....in that case visual rays hits the object and then we can make vertical lines using that

    the book i'm using currently is Basic perspective - Robert W-Gill



    thanx

    I needed a little exercise.

    This is what it would be like if it's a pyramid on a cube.

    I wasn't sure if the one corner of the cube shadow would stick out so I did it's "would have been" shadow in purple. The corner I was worried about is inside the larger shadow.

    Look up a book on perspective by Ernest Norling. Explains all that in a very accessible form.
