    Perspective shortcuts to make deadline

    When doing an illustration that has a tight deadline and you need to use perspective, are there any quick alternate methods to get you angles right besides using the vanishing points? And also what do you do if the vanishing points are way off your paper? Any advice on any tricks I might not be a aware of?

    Hmm, I'd ask them both.

    But uhh, yeah - it's called eyeballing, if you know the rules you should be err decently ok. That or grab a bunch of string and some thumbtacks.
