I'm trying to work on some perspective and value drawings. I have attached two images, I plan on having a figure close to the camera or something there but I want to show the background so you can see if the building row in the back makes sense in perspective. I want to make sure the basics are correct before adding detail and color.
Thanks in advance for your critiques.
I think having your vanishing point so low is the problem you're having. It looks to me like you're trying to force a view that the perspective isn't supporting. I've done a paintover (only for composition purposes.) There are a couple of things that I think could be done to help your composition. If you zoom out, your current composition is either too cramped (in the second image you have) or just divided almost in half (in the first image.) I've moved the horseman in to what I feel is a more pleasing compositional position. I've also broken up the edge that was cutting the image so neatly in two, and added a bit of value for some depth. I hope something here is helpful!
Your horseman isn't actually in correct perspective with the rest of the scene. It's like I said earlier: you're forcing the scene to do something that the perspective isn't allowing. I've done two more paintover-ish type things to illustrate.
The green line is where your horizon line should be if you want to leave the horseman where he is. The red line is where your horizon currently is. In the other picture I've moved the horseman down to where your current horizon dictates he should be.
I hope that helps.
