We started by doing a town view:
This was basically our introduction to three point perspective.
We were given a script that takes place in a western town, and then we had to do a two point perspective background and pose our characters in it! This was a little bit like storyboarding, but these kinds of pose sheets are what an animator would be given before they begin animating a scene. That way they know how big to make the characters, and the range of movement they'll have on the page.
And lastly we did a one point perspective drawing of the town, to provide another perspective shot for our location.
