Kleenex box reference picture and the kleenex box with VL . VL are green.

Thanks for your assistance! Much appreciated.

Arnoud, sorry if this is not correct or not good advice. It took me ages of drawing boxes to figure this out.....

It is not wrong. On the other hand - I'll admit you need some practice with it :thumbsup: - it is quite possible to guesstimate whether the VP's are about on the same level without drawing them completely up to the EL.

Shelly -
You did very well with the 4 boxes :clap:.
Please move on to class 3 :thumbsup:.

Kathy -
You worked hard, but there is some problem. Did you read the complete first posting, including the added "rules" with their illustration of the railroad tracks?
1: further away looks smaller
2: all VL's converge on the same HL




Further away looks smaller ?



Further away looks smaller ?
It is very well to choose a horizon line, but then the VL's must converge to a point on that line (red correction at the left). OR they do NOT converge because they do not recede, in that interpretation all the lines in the same group must run parallel (red correction at the right). If you opt for a small slant, then all lines in that group must give the suggestion that they go towards the HL (blue correction).

BTW, you don't need to post your reference, a drawing must be correct in itself. Sometimes it is even better not to post the reference, as it will show that you drew something very different.





You don't need to redo these, carry on with the table and the chair, but keep in mind the 3 principles explained with the railroad rack :thumbsup:.

table and chair

I hope these are right!!!!

Well done, Kathy :clap:.
One remark, not related to perspective, but able carpenters cut all legs of a table to the same length :lol:.



Good job so far, please move on to class 3 :thumbsup:.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective
 
First part of the lessons. Placing different boxes along a horizon line and the 4 boxes. Must admit the 4 boxes took some time but certain things really started to click like making sure everything sits on one horizon line and anything parallel to the HL doesn't converge.
It was difficult trying to visualize a vanishing point "off the page" I resulted in making the line extend onto my drawing board. I'm sure with more practice I'll be able to eyeball it though.

I'll do the other activities later today :) I hope these are correct and my understanding of perspective is correct.

Very good understanding, Lee, everything is completely correct :clap::clap:.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective
 
Thanks Arnoud :)
Here are my kleenex box and table. A little distortion due to the VP's being a little too close but I have identified the problem so can sort that out in the future.

The chair is proving for difficult but maybe that's because I'm mentally drained from reading and studying perspective today that it just wants a rest haha.

Apologies the image is rather light. I'll edit my images more before posting in future, or use harsher lines on my drawing.

All very well done, Lee :clap:.
Please move on to class 3 :thumbsup:.

Here is my perspective drawing. I combined the table, chair, and 4 boxes into one line drawing:

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective
 
Several edges do not comply with the basic principles explained with the railroad track. The most important: "further away looks smaller". And those that do converge, don't follow the second principle: "only one eye level".



Please don't rush, take your time. And most important: be critical on your own work, check what you've done, correct if needed.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll try another.

I can see errors as soon as I post them... Maybe I should be working from a drawing board and not on the desk?

I'll try another later.

Edit:
How's this?



I left the lines in so you could see them. Oh, and I used a ruler!

The previous drawings I was trying to visualize the VP's off the paper, to avoid that weird error that happens when they are too close together.
