    Perspective and composition help needed

    I am trying too learn how to draw perspective, and I need help! This is a rough sketch of a dragon and a landscape. I would like to know if I did the perspective right, and what about the composition is it to empty to the left?

    I know it all need a lot of work, but if the perspective is wrong, there is no point in working on the drawing in details before I sorted it out!

    You are using one point perspective for a scene that requires three (maybe you can skirt with two, but at least two points).
    Also if our viewpoint is above the dragon, we should see it from above too, not from profile.
    I'd suggest you to read David Chelsea's book "Perspective! For comic book artists": http://www.scribd.com/doc/29299861/D...c-Book-Artists

    I wanted the dragon to be seen front on, and the dragon looking down at a castle below. 3 point perspective sounds right there must be a vanishing point below the ground level of the dragon. Thanks for the tip about the book, I will try to get it!
