Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

sapf - You're off to a good start.
First advice: don't rush !

You may skip the whole theory about the differences between 1, 2, and 3 point. You don't need it as an artist, it's mathematics. But one theoretical definition is crucial - what is a vanishing line. Perhaps more important, what is NOT a vanishing line.
Lines a and b are NOT.

A vanishing line shows the correct direction of a real or imaginary line. And a line has at least two points. Your drawings make it clear that you don't have a clear understanding of the definition of a VL.

So, first step first, draw the VL's on this image. We will continue from there on.



Also, revisit the first post, I added an intuitive explanation.
See you .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

That is correct so far, sapf .
OK, I didn't mean to let you copy the photo, just draw the VL's on the photo. Now one point: you did it correctly for one set of parallel lines, but there is another set running to the right side . I did leave room on the image .
After drawing the second set, draw the real VL's on your previous drawing of a chair. They will not nicely converge to a VP. Don't correct, observe how the VL's are a powerful tool to see your errors. Post both practices.
You're on the right path .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

sapf -

A vanishing line tells you the correct proportion of related heights.
So a IS a vanishing line, it shows you the correct sizes of the front and back legs in relation to the seat. But b is NOT, is doesn't tell anything about the left front leg. Look, why not b' ?



Lines that connect only one point with a pretended vanishing point are completely useless.

Keep up the good work

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Well done, oakenshadows .
You understood the mechanics of perspective .
But "draw what you see" is very much "see what you've drawn". Look at your chair drawing, something is odd with the seat. With a few VL's it becomes clear which edge must be corrected .


I'm a bit disappointed with your 4-boxes. It is fully correct perspective wise, but it is so boring, all in the same direction, as a "modern" urban development. For your development in general, not just perspective, I'd advise you to redo this exercise: find an interesting arrangement ("still life") with real boxes, then draw, then check with perspective. THAT is the correct sequence to learn fast .

Keep up the good work .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hi, thanks for your critique, yes the boxes were kind of boring.

Here is a reference photo I took of the boxes I drew for my redo:


Here is my drawing of the 4 boxes:


Thanks for taking the time to do this!
