ok, I actually have something to ask, haha.
I was toying around with making a cityscape with 2-point perspective, and I think I never learned to use 2-point in that way. Like, I know how to use perspective, I'm not too great with manipulating perspective to work for me haha. Anything that can help with that?
Practice... you hint that you already know how to use perspective a little, so the rest from there is just lots of practice.
Also a grid helps a lot too. Sometimes it gets too messy to have it on your actual drawing, so many tend to draw a grid on another piece of paper and then use a light box, or some nice markerpaper to do do their drawing over top.
I I learned once how to make the grid proportional, but now I cannot remember how it was suppose to be done... I'll google that later.
If you need a quick grid, Go here and download one. Although small, they get the job done.
Also, i'm shit with 3-point, I don't know when to use it!
3 point is a bit more tricky, but just as fun. The real trouble arises when you are trying to figure out which line goes to which perspective point. In the beginning its not hard, but when you are doing details you'll want to kills something or someone.
You usually want to use this when you want height, depth and width all at once. Like if you are looking up at a building from the ground or from above.
Although some of those settings can be fudged with a one point perspective, they can be much more dynamic with a 3 point.

Dark did that one, right? I can't remember...
