Thanks for all the feedback! I'm really enjoying myself!

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hi Arnoud,

My husband felt the picture did not accurately reflect the real drawing, so he processed it some more... I tried to edit my last post, but I couldn't see any options to do that...so I'm double posting...my apologies!



Have a great day!

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Josee - Good job .
But one remark, the top of the letterbox has a twist. It is not consistent with the base, - nor with the perspective of the wall BTW. It struck me at the first glance, but I'll show you the VL's to make it clear.



"Common" members have a 1 hour window to edit their own post. Moderators can edit any post any time. But for images there is a trick: images get a database ID consisting of the user number, the date, and the name of the file on the user PC. If you start a dummy post, upload the corrected image under the same name, only uploading, not inserting, it will be replaced. Abort the dummy post. No problem in keeping the original file in a different folder on your PC, only the name is taken, the folder is ignored. As to which timezone for the date, no idea, I assume US somewhere.

In my view you're ready to move on to class 4 .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hello Arnoud, here I am in class 3!

I have spent most of the afternoon on and off working on the clock. I would like to post it, reduced to cubes, before I transfer it to good paper. as usual I have trouble with the verticals, but I dont want to wimp out and use a ruler otherwise I shall never learn to draw them. Perhaps I should spend a day just drawing vertial lines. I did use a ruler when drafting the vertical of the wall, in hopes one good line would give me a start!

Anyway, here is the first draft for comment and correction. Some of my early attemps are still there. I went over the 'good' lines in ink, so I can see them to trace through if all is good with the sketch.

hope you had a good weekend

Thank you
Katie

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Thanks Arnoud! I see that line out of perspective now...I made changes to the design of the top of the box a few times (I didn't like the way it looked the first couple of times) and did not check to make sure perspective was correct...thanks for pointing it out...I need to slow down and pay attention...

Thanks for your help..good to know about the time restriction to edit posts and the dummy posts!

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Katie - Almost everywhere correct .
On subjects that are sensitive to perspective errors, like here with many cubes, it is important to check all edges.



Apart from those, you did very well .

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Katie's adventures in perspectiveland!

When I fixed the wall, I noticed the clock was now too far back and in fact the back part would be 'through the wall' behind the shelf. No problem, I thought…I shall just trace the clock separately, and bring it forward on the shelf. I did the same with the class too.

Just as I was congratulating myself on my cleverness, it occurred on me that by moving the objects 'forward' I had also moved the horizon forward too. I now had 3 horizons!

So now I had to realign EVERY SINGLE LINE on the clock and on the glass. I won't make that mistake again! (I shall make others instead )

So here we go for take 2 on the clock.

The picture underneath is my mothers church. I would like to have a go at drawing that too, if you think it would be good practice. And if it comes out nicely, I can send it to my mum!

I know the cottage on the right, and the back of the butchers on the left don't lean in, so I assume I would straighten them?

Thank you
Katie

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Very well corrected, Katie .
Nice touch to draw your mother's church .

Yes, definitely ! This is a extremely common camera distortion. In art vertical lines are kept vertical except for good reasons. For instance 3 point perspective in comics, to show how superman is flying high among the skyscrapers. Or for some artistic reason, as in the iconic crucifix by Salvador Dali ("Christ of Saint John of the Cross").

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hi Arnoud, I really enjoyed this! I had no idea how to draw glass, so I just did my best guess.

I hope you like it. (you must be bored of clocks and dice by now! )

I will get on with the church next, but it may be a few days. I have been neglecting my work (I am a sewing machinist who works from home) and I am going to have to catch up tomorrow.

Cheers
Katie

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hi Arnoud! Gosh that was a challenge! This picture has been so far outside my comfort zone its not true.

However…it is done. I can see lots and lots of mistakes…the porch is too narrow, and I simplified it a lot. I had no idea how to do glass, and I am wondering now if it would be better to do the glass just dark without trying to do 'refective bits' but I'm not too sure about light and shade yet. And I dumped the car, for obvious reasons. And the bricks are way too big...the church is built in tiny Victorian red bricks and mine looks like it's made out of breeze blocks!

Anyway…enough said. After a whole weeks work…here it is.

My mums church, the first is the photo I was working from…it doesn't show the slabs in front of the church, but i know they are there, and I put them in as it is more perspective work.

The second picture is my sketch, which I then worked from to tidy up the perspective and the third is the finished picture. I am really proud of it, and I am going to post it to mum in the UK next week.

I hope you like it…..

Cheers
Katie
