Hello! Long time lurker. I was reading the Ranc0r sticky thread (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=166&t=655287) and figured I'd like to have my progress as an artist documented for future artists. I started drawing 1 page of sketches a day back in June and feel my artist eye developing. I have a long way to go but I welcome any and all critiques and especially exercises people know of.

Now that the thread has been approved I can post more pictures.

First, a few books that I have used in learning how to draw:
Big Book of Cartooning (http://www.amazon.com/Big-Book-Cartooning-Bruce-Blitz/dp/0762409398/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1250841971&sr=8-2) by Bruce Blitz
Action! Cartooning (http://www.amazon.com/Action-Cartooning-Ben-Caldwell/dp/0806987391/) and Fantasy Cartooning (http://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Cartooning-Ben-Caldwell/dp/1402716125/) by Ben Caldwell
Andrew Loomis (http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/)' books
Cartoon Animation (http://www.amazon.com/Cartoon-Animation-Collectors-Preston-Blair/dp/1560100842/) by Preston Blair
Also i have been using the website Karma Toons (http://karmatoons.com/drawing/1a.htm) for instruction as well.

Now to the pictures.

Perspective practice. Middle top right is my favorite. Top left would be fine but I lost track of what I was doing when I made the middle 2nd story building. :-/ Was going for a cloudy reflection and ended up with squiggles.

Yet another sketch of perspective. I hat the middle top this time around. The building on the right just lost all sense of direction. :-/

Welcome here, I'm so glad somebody here is doing perspective studies :D
I strongly encourage you to keep at it, the fruits will be sweet ;)

I hope you don't mind if I point out at some little mistakes you did so that you could avoid them in further studies, here they are :

http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/8577/08282009sketch1bydlpwil.png

1. First, I drawed 3 instead of two building on the left side just to show you how strongly they foreshorten with insreasing distance from camera. You can see that the third building (all 3 have the same length) is actually so thin that it's barely noticable but yet so much increase the sense of depth. All 3 arrows in this image shows various vanishing points to which paralel lines are converging.

2. Here I showed an easy method to find centre of a rectangle in perspective. Just make diagonals and where they cross is a true center of that object in perspective. I drew the door right in the middle of it for example. Here I also showed few horizontal paralel lines to get a grasp of how draw the tiles on sides of a road.

3. This is something essential you should realize, that vanishing point are always behing objects, not in front of them. So to make a sense of the image no. 3 you have to consider it as seen from bellow (like if the floor was transparent). I drew a little guy seeing above to a building above him. You could see some crappy clouds receding on horizont :)

Keep up buddy, looking forward to see more :)
