Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hello Arnoud, I finished my four boxes. Got a couple of good learnings out of it.

1 is that I was focusing so much on accurate construction lines that I forgot these should be faint and incorporated into the shading. My drawing looks a little "shady" because of it.
2 is that it's as much about shading around the background of the boxes as inside the edges of the boxes. I had a really cool elliptical lamp that was throwing a cool circular shadow behind them. Didn't really do it justice with my shading though.
3. Shading technique will always be important, quality and not rushing really shows. Some parts I did better than others.
4. Having a second piece of paper taped underneath creates a line when I rub over it. I forgot about that.

Here it is...

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

These are my 4 boxes and the reference photo. Next I'll try to find the VPs.

Thanks for your patience. I'm trying!

Arnoud, sorry if this is not correct or not good advice. It took me ages of drawing boxes to figure this out.....
It is not wrong. On the other hand - I'll admit you need some practice with it - it is quite possible to guesstimate whether the VP's are about on the same level without drawing them completely up to the EL.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Kathy -
You worked hard, but there is some problem. Did you read the complete first posting, including the added "rules" with their illustration of the railroad tracks?
1: further away looks smaller
2: all VL's converge on the same HL




Further away looks smaller ?



Further away looks smaller ?
It is very well to choose a horizon line, but then the VL's must converge to a point on that line (red correction at the left). OR they do NOT converge because they do not recede, in that interpretation all the lines in the same group must run parallel (red correction at the right). If you opt for a small slant, then all lines in that group must give the suggestion that they go towards the HL (blue correction).

BTW, you don't need to post your reference, a drawing must be correct in itself. Sometimes it is even better not to post the reference, as it will show that you drew something very different.





You don't need to redo these, carry on with the table and the chair, but keep in mind the 3 principles explained with the railroad rack .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Well done, Kathy .
One remark, not related to perspective, but able carpenters cut all legs of a table to the same length .



Good job so far, please move on to class 3 .
