Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

I thought I saw some cubes in this picture... I thought I'd prefer draw that because it's from a photo that I took. I don't know if that makes it any more like a drawing from life, but anyway..

It's Oakworth railway station in West Yorkshire, UK

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Here are my drawings for Class 3. Sorry again for the bad quality of the photos, I'm struggling with the camera and lighting in the evening.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Reynard -
Perspective errors are immediately apparent on cuboid objects. Fundamental perspective should not be difficult to understand, nobody will believe the edited pictures of the railway tracks in class 2 !



A. further away looks smaller. Taking the VL's that you imagined yourself, you imagine further away larger
B. there is only one HL Your VP's are on many different heights.

The problem is attention, don't freewheel on imagination. That is the basic slogan of this classroom draw what you really see, not what you imagine that should be there.
And therefore it is far better to draw from real life, not from photos. Although not an error, you carefully copied the typical camera distortion on the dice, you would never draw them like that from real life.
But the same error as above occurs in this drawing, the VP's of left and right dice are on different horizontals.

Funny that you mention it, I have an attention disorder. I feel ashamed for making the same error as in class 2 again. I tried a second time, see below. This time I did not forget that the VP's of all objects should be on the same HL (VP wall red, VP clock blue, VP glass thingy yellow). However, it is hard to draw straight lines, to imaginary VP's.

Furthermore, it seems the camera of my phone also distorts the drawing while making the photo, just like you mentioned for the dice. the center of the photo is a bit 'stretched', too close by.

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Very well done, Reynard, you've understood the problem completely

True, but a little latitude is OK. Architects construct so called "artist's impressions" from the plan-elevation design. Nowadays it is done by computer, with mathematically correct perspective -- but it doesn't look natural.

Please move on to class 4

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Decided to do books as cubes! Then saw cubes in the little storage unit, the window, the radiator ..... and ended up with this. On the photo the unit and receding wall appear to be leaning to the left although I wasn't aware of that in picture. For the unit the vanishing point was to the right about half way down the window pane that is visible! Now when I look again maybe they are, I thought the ruler was straight The radiator-I probably overdone it receding!!
I realise I am not at that stage of circles but I wanted to try.

Anyway thought I would get your thoughts on what I need to work on before starting the dice!
Many thanks

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Rachael -
The general impression is very good .
But there is no way to judge on correct forms, in particular where perspective is at stake, because of the strong distortion. Please aim for camera / phone straight to the drawing. You held it at a slant, the top and left side are further away from the camera "further away looks smaller" !



Keep up the good work

Re: Basic 101: Class 3 - Drawing Cubic Objects

Hoping this is a bit better, I thought drawing was challenging but taking photos is even worse!

Viewing it on here either the photography has unnerved me or it is skewed!!
Thanks for all your guidance Arnoud.

Perspective is maddening, but I think I am improving.
