Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

demitas - Good job so far . There is one detail that looks odd in the line drawing.



Take care to draw the other side symmetrically when shading.



Or else, just ignore this decoration, you are the first to copy it .
Keep up the good work

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Whoops! Thanks for the reminder. I've tried to pick it up in the shaded version.

I think the clock face is not quite right, but circles are next class, right?

Thank you so much for all your hard work here!

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

I was have a question how to transfer onto the "good" paper. Can someone give me some suggestions. I tried the grid method but I know I am heavy handed and I see the lines on my work still.

Netta - First post of this thread:

Quote:
I then will rub graphite on the opposite side and transfer my corrected drawing to the “Good paper “ and then will proceed in whatever media that I want. You may also do the transfer via graphite paper, light table, or by taping the paper to a glass door or window and using it as a “natural light table”. You can also transfer by grid or by compass

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Netta - Good job .
A few remarks for improvement:
-- knowing a bit of theory can help tremendously to draw accurately, for instance basic perspective. Not necessarily complicated: it must be obvious to any person that "further away looks smaller". The silo is turned a bit, so that the right wall is visible. It is very slight, so it is acceptable to draw it as if the front wall is seen straight on, with parallel top and bottom edges. But if anything, the left wall is turned away, so the left side of the front wall can never be larger than the right one, the way you drew it .



-- broadly speaking we have 2 styles of drawing - with many intermediate forms. One is linear, outlining. The other is based on masses, shades. The linear style is rather analytic, its pure form is used by engineers. Your drawing of the clock, wall and counter is clearly purely linear; in that case it looks rather sloppy and not convincing that many outlines are missing, not even suggested. Then all of a sudden the glass is drawn as a mass; which makes the whole rather inconsistent.

Keep up the good work .

Here is a redo of the clock and the silo I hope I got this correct.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Looks good, Netta .
But one thing confuses me, why did you draw the silo as a ziggurat (Mesopotamian pyramid) ?
You may move on to class 4 .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hi, have been doing the cubes homework. These are my drawings of a tower, I saw it in a newspaper, also of a dresser, and washing machine which are at home. The photos come out very light, although on paper the drawings are darker! Anyway, hope I've got the perspectives right! Thanks a lot, Prabha

Here is a good article on "post-processing" your photo or scan.

Architectural drawings are very sensitive to even slight perspective errors, it takes a lot of concentration. You did very fine in general, but two lines were overlooked:



But no doubt that you understand perspective .
Please move on to class 4 .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Thank you Arnoud! I do appreciate your feedback, and how meticulously you guide us. I looked at only two perspectives, but seem to have neglected the third! I will correct it in my book, so that I do not make the same mistake. Thanks once again, and see you in Class 4. Prabha :-)

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hi Arnoud,

I think I am getting the hang of this, but I think I prefer the old method of squint, measure and draw, so some of my lines are still not correct, from doing it this way.
First my cubes for the dice...
please excuse my photography, I am going to see if I can use my daughter's camera in future, it takes a much better photo, even with me snapping the pic. I am going to read the info on fixing in PSP...
Next the Silo....

This one is of the Shelf, clock and glass....

and my go at the trailer, looking down from one of our balconies..

These are my first sketches of these, just wanting them checked first before continuing...
Cheers,
Elle

Elle - Very well done in general .

Nothing wrong with that, but knowing perspective frees you from boring measuring every single window sill in a street, for instance. It is also very useful for a quick check on your measuring. For instance, the silo sketch by Jay was not checked by him, as you can read in the first post. He was also surprised that many pupils started to copy it. Now here you should not copy that sketch literally - in fact never copy a photo of another artist's sketch without checking perspective, consistent lighting, etc.



Otherwise, your sketches are ready for further work .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hi Arnoud,
Thanks for the thumbs up for the go ahead with the shading.
I understand about the perspective and find that I am learning with each new drawing. Ummm, I did read all of the info at the start of the lesson, along with many of the earlier posts. I will have to remember to re-read before starting. I'll read you again around the w/e, when I've posted my finished pieces.
Cheers,
Elle
