Angry Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Well, here is my best cubic form.

It is a house with the door set back but I could not figure out how to show that . The straight lines on either side of the door should be round columns.

Thanks for your help. I think I did manage "further away is smaller".

Kathy

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Looks good, Kathy .
The slanting corners bother me, I assume that you drew them vertically ?

This is the typical deformation that you get if you tilt the camera/smartphone with respect to the plane of the drawing.



Another point to consider is the choice of the eye level. The EL is the level where the imagined observer in the picture has his eyes. That is in normal circumstances not at the level of the gutters .
As for the columns, cylinders are in next class. And you're ready for next class, please move on .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Here is another shot at the dice. They are actually 3 point perspective so it's a little tougher!

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Sorry for the disappearing act the last few weeks, just started a new job so haven't been able to do as much drawing as I'd have liked.

What time I did have spare was spent working on the below image of the mantle piece and clock. Tried to mainly focus on the image itself by identifying the cube forms and not get too hung up on perspective.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Well done, Lee .
One remark though, before I could appreciate what you did, I had to post-process the picture, it was unreadable as posted. I did nothing fancy, just playing a bit with the Brightness and Contrast sliders.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Thanks Arnoud, yeah I should really start editing my images after scanning just to make them darker. Something I'll do in future

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

After reviewing the info and exercises for class I was driving around doing errands and came to the realization that most buildings are a combination of one or more cubes. One of my biggest challenges is getting buildings right. It seems if I simplify them into their cubic components then establish eye level and vps I should be able to render them more realistically. I am pretty sure I get establishment of eye level/hl ( by placing a ruler in front of eyes) but vp is trickier since the vp can be way outside of the picture plane. I have tried estimating the angle(s) of one the receding side(s) for each vp and then proceeding from there. Does this make sense as an approach?

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Norma -
I'm a bit confused, this question belongs to class 2, perspective. After finishing class 2 I think you'll know the answer yourself .
BTW, you did very well in class 1, so please move on to class 2 .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Here are my class 3 assignments. The clock on the mantle was difficult because one of vps was waaay outside the picture plane. It was hard to get the angles right.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Well done, Norma
The dice are correctly drawn, geometrically speaking. The perspective was correctly constructed. But it shows that it was constructed, the front bottom angles are too sharp to be realistic. For ease of construction, the distance between the VP's was chosen too short.
There are several tricks to cope with VP's outside the paper:
-- paste a another piece of paper alongside
-- (on a drawing board) with a pin and a piece of string. (On more than half the paintings by Vermeer there is little pin hole at the VP.)
-- 21th century: digitally with a photoshop lookalike. (for this class, the drawing is scanned or photographed anyway)
That reminds me to stress that the best way to learn is to draw first ("freehand" perspective ), then check by constructing the VL's.

Please move on to class 4 .
