Aerial Perspective Project

In order to minimize the difficulty of this project for students, I let them use how to draw books to select three characters for their Aerial Perspective Project.

Students are required to create a layout for the characters to inhabit, the project requires one character in the foreground, one character in the mid-ground and one character in the background. Overlapping and Cropping are also required along with loss of details as things get "further away" from the viewer.
