Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Good job, Alice
A small issue, you changed the eye level - absolutely no problem in itself. But as a sports trainer of mine used to ask "did you choose to do it or did it just happen ?" The problem when you do not realize what you did is that you slavishly copy obvious orientations from the reference that are no longer realistic.
The underside of the back window happens to lie on the eye level in the reference. But no longer in your copy ! drawing it horizontally is not correct.




Otherwise, you did very well

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Thank you Arnoud for the quick response and feedback. I guess I paid attention to the parallel lines going to one VP, did not notice that that the underside of the back window should be at the eye level. I also notice when I use tracing paper to trace to the final paper, some of the lines may shift a little.

I believe practicing more makes better.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hello,

So these are my assignments for class 3. I struggled a bit with the clock and I realised that it was a bit crooked so I tried to remedy it as much as I could. I also tried to draw the die in perspective but I couldn't for some reason so I drew them with an idea of perspective but I didn't actually correct them afterwards.











Thank you,
SaharM.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Well done in general Sahar
There is one instance where I cannot understand what you tried to show with these converging vertical lines:




Perspective is correctly analyzed except for the receding part of the wall next to the clock. The grout lines should converge towards the horizon line. Taking the clock as the most developed part of the drawing the HL is the blue line. The grout lines are all over the place, they don't even form a coherent set.




Coming back on the clock, apart from the Walt Disney look, the perspective is far too exaggerated. (Because the right VP is much too close). The general motto of the classroom is "Draw what you see, not what you imagine" Take a look around you at cupboards and desks - do you ever see this kind of exaggerated perspective?


Keep up the good work, please move on to class 4

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

The converging lines of the silo were accidental because I resolved not to use a ruler to practice my straight lines so if you find that my lines are a bit wonky it's because of that, but im working on it. Thanks for the feedback Arnoud!

Hi Arnoud---


Life distracts and I am back to cubes. Warm up with another house sketching

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Very well done, Alice
The perspective is perfect . Which brings me to the sole remark: this drawing screams "perspective assignment".
Not that it should not be perfect , but the perspective is exaggerated, the VP's are definitely too close together. For a more artistic effect, at least one VP should lie far outside the paper. Besides, this close perspective is not realistic, you'll never see it IRL.


Good job in this class, please move on to class 4

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Thank you, Arnoud. Your suggestion is well taken.



I was practicing using three drawing pages side by side for one of the perspective drawing on a complex house- unfortunately I did not finish it --- too busy, too complicated at that time.


I did continue practicing in a smaller scale, sometimes a bit exaggerated. But I understand the principles of perspectives better now.



Drawing buildings is one of my favorite subject and so much to learn. I will definitely come back to do more in the future, such as the ones with stairs, houses in a hill, etc.
