    I'm not exactly sure how you "plan it out" before drawing. You're gonna sketch down the idea and keep it in mind, but plan it out? How is this done exactly?

    You do preliminary sketches, see what needs to be corrected. So you pretty much start drawing.

    I used to 'plan' out my perspective drawings by starting pretty rigid in terms of defining horizon line, vps, etc.
    I've found that a loose approach while keeping perspective in mind helps with being more creative with the approach. But thats just me

    Oh I was thinking of life drawings where basically what I see is the final image. I wasn't thinking of an image that has prelim sketches. For example, I was drawing the counter at work. But I placed the horizon far to high and drew one of the screens too big. If I'd taken the time to place the horizon in the right place and check my scale of the screen to the rest of the stuff on the counter, it would have been a lot better. But instead I eventually scrapped it because everything was off.
