can someone explain?

Could someone please explain these sentences from Craig Mullins Macross tutorial?


1. He said "
Here is a way you can find the vanishing points of something- just paste a lower rez version in a big grayscale file and line up points until you have convergence. Then trace the left and right with a horizontal line and you have the eye level (if they match). They usually don't match exactly and this is due to distortion or bad construction. As you can see I fudged the eye level up in the final for design reasons. I don't like doing this, as it really hurts the image, but sometimes you have no choice"

I don't get this...

What are vanishing points?
How to trace?
What he means by eye level?

Please guys help me get in 2d

Do you have a link to the tutorial? I'm sure it had some images that should make it easier to undesttand.

.. ok that greyscale over the other part didn't make much sense for me eiter...

Vanishing point
- This should help a little

Tracing-

1.Open the picture to trace*.
2.I'd suggest you to Duplicate it just so you wont save something that you wouldnt whant to.
3. Make a new layer
4. Draw the same picture

*Trace = Copying

just type "dictionary" in Google, you'll find this site:
http://dictionary.reference.com/
Then type 'tracing', you get a page full of explanations. The ones you're looking for are probably these:


A reproduction made by superimposing a transparent sheet and copying the lines of the original on it.

n 1: the act of drawing a plan or diagram or outline 2: drawing created by tracing [syn: trace]

Vanishing point is there too:
