okay, this question isnt your general "how do i do perspective" question, because ive got that part more or less covered. what i'm having problems with is when im doing a drawing, i find that my vanishing points aren't far away enough to get the look i want. for example, the surface im working on seems to be too small for a nice spaced out large picture, so i find myself compramising by doing a small and crappy drawing. i guess my question is how do u guys do a drawing in perspective if u wanna put the vanishing point somewhere off the page so you get that look you want...i hope this makes some sort of sense....
cuz i know, especially in 2 point perspective, that if u have ur vanishing points too close, the drawing can appear distorted, but the page i work on is only so big, so i cant really space them out as nice as id like to
This has been covered eight bazillion times.
Do small crappy drawing.
Do big not-so-crappy drawing.

ugh sorry bout posting the same question
thanks for the quick answer, i guess ill do some browsing in this section
one way which is kinda slow but effective is using string and tape... say you do a rough drawing whatever size paper... next use the average of your angles to find your vanishing point which lie off the page. its tricky, works better on a large table or a wall if its extreme. I used this method to correct perspectives i may have missed. as long as you keep your points located with tape and where you page sits.. you can come back to it later and work it some more.
hope this helps
