    Practicing Perspective

    Hello Guys,
    Im trying to to improve my fundamentals and get a better understanding of perspective and constructing forms.
    Right now I want to figure out how to approach it effectively so here is how I would handle it:

    I thought about starting with the basic forms and drawing them in every perspective as well as arranging them in space. After that I would try to combine the basic shapes to create simple, abstract forms. If im getting comfortable with that, I would move on to recreate real world object starting with simple forms (f.e. a pencil sharpener, bottle ...) and continue towards more complex forms.

    My goal is to be able to construct complex objects (especially vehicles and buildings) in perspective. I would like to know some sort of guideline of objects I can construct to slowly build up complexity.

    if you have any suggestions or a better method please let me know, I really appreciate it!
