After experimenting with one-, two-, and three-point perspective in your sketchbook, develop a large (18 x 24") three- or four-point perspective drawing in which:
- forms are built upon forms
- shapes are cut out of forms
- it includes more than just box forms (Include pyramidal, conical, cylindrical, and semi-spherical forms as well.)
This can be representational or a three-dimensional "abstraction".
Bonus points for including life forms and a narrative or a fantasy element.
- A detailed cityscape with a lot of character, unique architecture, and interesting, detailed facades.
- A spaceship, fantasy automobile, or a complex real or imaginary machine.
- An interior space with a lot of detail.
Remember to give this larger drawing a lot of character and detail, and use multi-point perspective to the best of your ability. Challenge yourself.
Size: 18 x 24"
Medium: Pencil and/or ink on drawing paper (Value and color is optional)

There are a few books on linear perspective in the Portfolio classroom and plenty of resources online, including video tutorials.
