Thanks!
In Drawing D above, I sketched without constructing the perspective first.

I'll practice sketching first, then checking (in my art work, I won't post any more drawings here).

Thanks again for your help!

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Phew, this was harder than I thought. Eyeballing it and then adding perspective is a skill. Practise, Practise

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Very well done, Justine . You show a good understanding of perspective theory.
I'd like to see one final test, a coherent set of 4 boxes .

Keep up the good work

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

You asked, you got!

It all went ok, apart from needing lots of extra blank pieces of paper to get the vanishing points (or have a tiny picture!), but the top box, doesn't seem quite right to me.

Many thanks, Justine

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Justine -
Very good job .
Technically all is correct. But indeed the top box is not looking right. That illustrates how perspective is only a tool, a checklist. Other criteria should also be observed to make it "look good". In this case I think from a composition point of view that the top box overhangs too much to the back. It doesn't look balanced, both physically and pictorially.

You did very well in this class, please move on to class 3 .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

hi, i am having some troubles with hatching and crosshatching. It is difficult for me to describe a solid edge maybe it will come with practice. Without a solid edges my perspective looks bad. Any tips

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

As an older student and spending many years of hit and miss in drawing and painting I seem to find that the perspective lesson not as difficult as I thought it might have been. Although upon saying that I found both the table and chair very difficult and after 5 or 6 attempts of different types of tables and chairs I found that these were the best. (I hope).

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Stoian - No doubt you understand the foundation of perspective .

Tips on hatching:
-- we have a saying at D&S: don't be afraid of the dark .
-- avoid this "water flowing over a weir" effect.



-- be consistent within the same plane, don't just choose the easiest direction.



BTW, look at the blue lines . I'm sure you know, it is an oversight, but it shows how easy it is to loose your attention.

Well done in this class, please move on to class 3 .

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Tony - Very well done .
You constructed the perspective completely correctly.
As a small remark, the perspective is mathematically correct, but it doesn't look right esthetically. Because you constructed the drawing.
The distance between the VP's is too short, particularly on the Kleenex box and the chair. The effect is that the near bottom corner is too sharp. That corner can absolutely never be less than 90 degrees.
Somewhere in the first posting there is the TIP: SKETCH OUT YOUR DRAWING FREEHAND AND THEN CORRECT THE DRAWING USING PERSPECTIVE.

The table is very good .

Please move on to class 3 .
