    Depends on the method you are using to build your perspective. In classical 1 or 2 point perspective the convention is to make the ground flat.

    spherical perspective is an exaggerated view used to add drama or heighten tension in a scene. It is not really appropriate unless you are choosing it for a certain effect. Its current overuse in concept art and illustration is a fad and a crutch for unimaginative artists.

    Whoa...on your sketch...perspective is a much more precise thing.

    What would Caravaggio do?
