Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Well done, Reily . You've grasped the basic principle, but the real difficulty with perspective is not to understand the basics ("further away looks smaller") but to get a gut feeling for it. Practice, practice, paying attention.
ALL parallel lines that do not follow "the plane of the paper" converge to a VP. Of course, if very slight, you can ignore it, but definitely not diverging.



You are also correct on the second principle, all VP's lie on the only Horizon Line or EL. BTW, there is no need to put the EL in the same position as in your reference / scene. As a matter of fact, the knowledge of perspective is crucial in changing the EL when combining several references with different viewpoints, to arrive at a consistent picture.

The assignment of the table and / or chair is checking your understanding of the third basic principle. If not yet done, I'd advice you to look at post #365, page25.
Keep up the good work .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hello!

This lesson's assignments:
Cubes. I need to work harder on my straight lines (tried to draw the cubes by hand and vanishing points using a ruler)


Boxes:


Kleenex box. Here I tried to made something like the example in the book, drawing the box from different eye levels.


Chair. The annotation says that to be closer to what I was seeing reality I should have put the perspective points more separated. In this drawing I tried to do all by hand except the horizon line.


Thanks!

pixel blender -
Well done . You clearly understand what basic perspective is about.
Take care to look at all corners, what is this? I trust it is only an oversight .

Exactly , that is a very common error when people are too strongly focused on the geometric aspects of perspective.
Good job, please move on to class 3 .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Well done, Samantha . Everything is correct perspective-wise.
Not about perspective, but on proportions in general: try to imagine your sitting on that chair. It looks to me a piece of furniture for people with extremely long legs .
You finished this class successfully, please move on to class 3 .
