Novice blocks

Okay, so. I failed to pay any sort of serious attention in all the art classes I took in high school about perspective, as all I really cared to draw at the time were anime caracters (D'oh!) So naturally now I can draw people up the wahoo, but as far as backgrounds and environments go, I'm far behind in this area than I would like to be. So before I get into it, I want to thank you first and foremost for taking the time to do all this.

So anyway, here are some warm-ups, gleaning what I could from the first four videos.
So far just playing around and easing into it with the one- and two- point perspectives.
I will follow up with a third-perspective shortly.

I really dislike my waffle-exterior. Any tips for making the surface more... believable and less cartoony/like a five year old drew it? (^_^;)

Yikes. Okay, here's my three-point...

Or as I would like to call it, "OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?!"I think I'm going to go rewatch the three-point video a few more times and give this another shot.

I made another attempt at three-point last night in my sketchbook. Added a few lines in photoshop to make it clearer. (Apoligies for the crappy shot from my phone)

And another because practice makes perfect. :)
(I cheated a little on the circles, using the perspective transform tool. Even though I know better and should have used a box first...)
