Do whichever leads to the box having a better convergence. If the original dots you placed line up better than the end of the overshot line, draw from there. If after closer inspection you realize some point along the overshot line works better, draw from there instead.

Sometimes when I overshoot a line I realize my initial dot was actually at a worse place than I realized and the line I drew is accidentally better, so stop to take a look and both options before going forward.

Thank you very much!

I was a wondering what to do and if I was making the wrong choice all the time.

I usally stay with my initial dot, but now I will spend a time analyzing the line when I overshoot again.

How to Draw by Scott Robertson

When it comes to technical drawing, there's no one better than Scott Robertson. I regularly use this book as a reference when eyeballing my perspective just won't cut it anymore. Need to figure out exactly how to rotate an object in 3D space? How to project a shape in perspective? Look no further.
