I have had my students working in medieval projects since the beginning
of the year. They have already finished their pencil and sharpie
drawings, but I am curious about the site that you found that had
castles and perspectives toghether. Also, did you find Jay Conley's
drawing pages online or in a book? Thanks for the help. If you want to
know any of my plans that I have used, just drop me a note. Thanks.
