Today I stumbled upon this thread on Twitter. It shows a typical scene in one point perspective but on closer examination you can see that two vanishing points are used.
I’ve never seen this in any of my drawing books. It is a bit hard for me to follow the thread since I don’t understand Japanese and it is not possible to translate entire threads but from what I picked up it is a common technique used in animation.
From what I understand you sacrifice realism for the purpose of esthetics but I don’t really find it more appealing with two points.
Does anyone know this and can explain what the advantages exactly are and why this is done? Are there any other weird perspective tricks I should be aware of?
