Using the vector equation of the line of sight from the eye of the viewer to a point on an object, you can find the points where the line intersects the image plane, shown as a blue screen in the top half of the graphic. By using many such points we can create an image in perspective. The image created is shown in the bottom half of the graphic, as it would appear looking toward the positive direction.
