We've seen how important the horizon line is to establishing the correct …prospective you ever seen. The question is, how do we work out where …the horizon is supposed to be? It's all the question of vanishing points. …What we're going to do here is hide all the figures in our scene, so we see just …the background. Now we can see lots of lines in here that …we know are suppose to be horizontal. The base of this lower wall, the top of …the lower wall, the top of the upper wall, the dividing line between these …storeys in the building and, in fact, the lines in the windows themselves.…
All of these point in the same direction. So, let's find out where they all point to. …We'll make a new layer and we'll call it vanishinglines. …Now, let's switch to the Shapes tool and pick a good strong color. …This green will do nicely. I want to draw not shaped layers and not …paths, but actual pixels. We're going to use the Line tool which is …one of the variants in the Shape tools, and let's set a width of 5 pixels so we …
