Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Very well done, Josee .
Indeed, perspective is a very powerful tool.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Josee -
I'm a bit disappointed. You did very well until now, but the table has the typical error that I showed in the picture with the railroad tracks:



Top and legs are parallel as a rule, so they should have the same VP. Additionally, as a detail, the side of the leg runs parallel to the side of the top, I assume. So again, should converge to the same VP.

The kleenex box is drawn as engineers or technical illustrators would draw, with parallel sides. Its not wrong in itself, but it is not in perspective. Remember the first rule, further away looks smaller.
The error with the table should be simple to avoid. After all, a table is just a cube with large holes .

Well done .



On another aspect than perspective, see the blue lines, I don't think the box was squished. With hidden parts it is important to take care of correct alignment. And most people need to look for it very consciously. For instance, crossed legs could look very weird if you forget.
Keep up the good work .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hi Arnoud,

Thanks for the feedback! Ok I will fix those errors and re-submit. I got really frustrated with the kleenex box, I couldn't quite make it look right...and then I rushed through the table...The feedback really helps!

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hi Arnoud,

I understand what I did wrong...Here are the revised drawings...I ended up drawing the table and tissue box before making any decisions about the perspective...I drew what I thought I saw and then tried to apply perspective. This time around I made all the perspective decisions first, like eye line, and vanishing points...then drew my items..I drew the details I saw on the boxes after all the main lines were drawn...Is this a typical way of applying perspective, or am I doing something wrong?...Obviously the second drawing are much more accurate...I also noticed that drawing the perspective lines first made drawing these two items very very easy...I didn't struggle to draw the second time all, and I had no frustration whatsoever...the first 10 tries were very very difficult...I want to thank you again...I am learning so much!!




Have a wonderful day!

Excellent, Josee .

It is one of possible ways .
Deciding on the perspective first is the typical way of drawing from imagination.
When drawing from life, it is better - the result looks less mathematical - to draw the basic shape freehand, then check (and correct) the perspective. An example with your first drawing of the kleenex box:



I chose two lines and a HL that "looked right", and shifted the other edges.
Of course, you would do that before adding details, always draw the big shapes first.

Well done, please move on to class 3

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hello again, Arnoud,

I have never really understood perspective, so I am going to take this class slowly and check every step of the way, if that is OK with you.

I dont have the book but I have read the instructions and looked through the thread. I understand there is also a guest lecture too, and I shall take a look at that.

Here is the first exercise with the squares and lines. If this is correct I shall try a single box from life.

Thank you, Katie

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hi Arnoud, me again. I had a go at the single box…4 goes actually. I shall show you my 1st and 4th attempts.

I really am stopping now. There is no point in going on if I have misunderstood this!

The thing is, although I can see from the lines the first box is wrong…it sort of looks better. Maybe I am overly attached to it because I drew it first and was disappointed it was not right.

Thank you for looking at these,
Cheers, Katie

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Here are my attempts at the chair and the table. Both feel off for different reasons but I am posting for feedback.

The right side of the table feels a little off.




After uploading the image I realized that I forgot to add depth to the back of the chair.
