    ***updated some more tips***

    I've been requested to draw a mountain lake with a rider using magic to cross it, and an army in pursuit.

    *** to make the angles all wacky i changed the field of view angle from the normal 30-45 degrees to 60-75 degrees, this makes that fish eye lens look to the perspective.

    2) make a very crude drawing to illustrate the general idea. send for approval:
