To drawing convincing background scenery, perspective and construction are critical. Even with stylized and flat 2d design construction gives the scene a solid look and is evident in many old classic cartoons from Disney to Looney Tunes. Look for this quality next time you are watching a favorite cartoon.
These examples above are from a basic geometry textbook and has the technical terms for all the points and names for planes, etc. I enjoy learning about them but in storyboarding it is good to use shortcuts only after learning the fundamentals from a book or school.
