    Four Leaf Clover Perspective?

    Hi guys,

    I've been lurking in the forums for a while now, learning what I can, admiring just about everyone. I'm doing a project for school and ran into a problem I can't seem to sort out myself, so I thought this would be the best place to get help (hopefully I'm in the right section!).

    I'm doing a concept art for my project, and in this my character is wearing a four leaf clover as a hat (the theme is superstitions). I'd like the viewer to be looking from a slightly lower perspective than the character, thus I need to draw what should look like the underside of the clover hat. I can't manage to draw that perspective of a four leaf clover, let alone a clover hat.

    I have no 'training' when it comes to perspective (something I plan on remedying soon), but I can usually muddle my way into what looks right if I try hard enough. I simply can't do it this time, so I was wondering.. could someone possibly doodle me a four leaf clover from a low angle? I don't know if this is the kind of question I can ask people, but if it's okay, I would really appreciate it!

    Thank you

    That's not gong to happen. But, if you post what you have in the Studies/WIPs section you might get a paintover, or at least some concrete advice on where you're going wrong.

    Try practicing just drawing a square in perspective. Then draw a flat square with both diagonals dawn in, forming a cross. Now try drawing this square in perspective. Then draw the four leaf clover on the flat square with diagonals. Next, draw the leafs in in the square in perspective. Then try to play with it a little to make it look like you want.
