Oh hey I am suddenly reminded, I actually had the rectangle thing in mind when I drew this: [link] but I think I picked a really weird angle.

It was a very good try, but what you missed is that the bit of the rectangle CLOSEST to us is going to be bigger than the bit farthest from us. So in this pic, his head is much larger than his ass when it ought to be the other way around.
Actually, the way you drew him, he bears a striking resemblance to one of my dogs, who we call 'Tadpole' because his head is so big.

Haha, perspective is one of my biggest problem points! I can draw all kinds of things from a side view, but any other angle has been nearly impossible xD but this should help a lot, I'll give it a try! Thanks!

LOL top hats!?
Reply

Yes! Very important! To AVOID :iconfffuuuplz:
How many times have we seen the 'top hat trick' on deviantArt? It's so OBVIOUS! Just learn to draw the tops of their little heads, people!
