Erik Olson continues to grind away at his series on 3-point perspective with this lesson focusing on the application of 45-degree reference points, allowing you to place any size square in any place or plane that your piece requires. He looks at new ways to construct stairways and buildings in 3-point perspective. This is not for beginners, we don’t recommend you start here!
