Figure 5.26 To construct a box in one-point perspective, draw a horizon line (HL) and place a vanishing point (VP) somewhere on this line; draw a square somewhere beneath the horizonâ€”this will be the front of your box; draw four lines, one from each corner of the square that must pass through the vanishing point; and lastly, draw in the back vertical and horizontal to complete the box.
