Cool Dodecahedron and Icosahedron in Perspective

I recently realized that I've avoided many Drawing challenges because they were hard—maybe too hard for me.

At any rate, how would one go about Drawing an Icosahedron, Dodecahedron and some of the simpler Stellated Polyhedra in Realistic Perspective?

Thanks.

PS: Don't so much want to Draw them for their own sakes—but rather to include them in Still-Lifes etc.

Do a google search for a 3D picture of whatever shape you want and then just draw that.

Cool Re: Dodecahedron and Icosahedron in Perspective

It's true, there are some Beautiful Polyhedra on Google and other sites.

And Thank You for the links.....

Those Hypermag Sets are very appealing.

However, all those illustrations are done in Isometric Projection—an interesting method of Depicting 3-Dimensional Objects in a Drawing.

When I took Drafting my final Project was an Exploded Isometric of an old H&R Breaktop Revolver—so I am familiar with the system.

{Can't remember the Letter Designation—It was done on a sheet of Vellum about 20"x30".}

However none of the Polyhedra are in Artist's One or Two Point Perspective.....

As if you were looking at a massive Dodecahedron—for instance—from a marked distance.

Thanks though!
