2D or 3D?

What is the difference between two-dimensional and three-dimensional object?

In a drawing or painting, an object that is two-dimensional is flat and lacks any depth. In contrast, a three-dimensional object is more life-like. You can see more than one side of the object.

Castle Illustration

Today’s creative art activity is a drawing of two castles. The one on the left is an example of a two-dimensional image, while the one on the right is three-dimensional. In the image on the right, you can see multiple sides of the castle instead of just the front side. There are also shadows in both doorways that create depth.
