Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hello,
I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this question. I need to seriously learn about perspective and just found this page. Can you please direct me to the starting point of the foundation of Perspective. I need to start right at the beginning. How to I join the classroom and find the lectures.. sorry to bother you, but I really need help with this. thanks for your reply.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hi Arnoud,
It's that obvious is it? lol. I did skip that, as for some reason, I got right to this page first, (from google? not exactly sure) and since I haven't been to wet canvas in some time I had forgotten just how to navigate around.. Problem solved as I have read the start here thread. Thanks for your response. I'll be checking things out and hopefully this persective thing will start making some sense. I just find it so confusing, and envy people who get it right.
thanks again Arnoud.
Val

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Phew, been working hard on these perspective assignments. I think I got the hang of 1PP. 2PP is a lot harder but I started to grasp the idea a little bit. I realize now I could've altered my objects a bit more. The cat carrier isn't as simple as I drew it so I tried to vary it up a little by drawing a door open option as well. On the first object the pattern on the sides of the container are all over the place. I drew the object kinda small and by the time I got to doing the patterns on the sides, things got so small that I couldn't really control it any more.

The landscape image was drawn according to one of the example pictures but I changed it up a little to make it easier to understand. At first I didn't really know if I was supposed to use 1PP or 2PP but I ended up going with 1PP and making this "leaving town" sort of image to get a grasp of horizon. Towards the end I realized that my phone line poles are all over the place. I was looking at the original photo and I think I got fooled by how some of the poles stand in a leaning position. So there's a lot more to practice but I'm still rather happy how the image came out.

The shadings on these things are probably incorrect. I played around with using a vanishing point as a light source just to put more emphasis on how the vanishing point affects everything on the picture.

Also, there's a bit of a whoopsie on the first picture where I drew one box above the horizon line. Went over a line I wasn't supposed to with a black marker.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Well done, Minna . The perspective is mathematically correct - except of course the telegraph lines.
But we see the typical errors when people concentrate too much on the theoretical construction.
1. The nearest (lower) corner is much too sharp. It can never be sharper than 90°. Try it IRL: it is at its sharpest when looking down on it, and than it is 90°.
It is caused by putting the VP's much too close together.
2. Not enough "foreshortening", e.g. the chair. You could easily put two people on that seat.

But you did a good job on the basics, please move on to class 3 .

Thank you for the tips I do have a habit of drawing things too small and I noticed the weirdness with my vanishing points. I'll need to work on that in the future.
