Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Here, I post my practice. Assignment 1-2 is for horizon line and VP,assignment 3-4 for the things on tables to show different VP (sorry, no rectangle table and chair with straight legs at my home) and assignment 5 is a desk using the skills in class 2. Looks a little bit dirty. And a question, the drawing of assignment 3 is so wired, but I don't know how to revise it. It seems deformed too much if I keep the two VPs of the table surface at the same horizon line as others. Thank you for your time and help.
Amanda

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Well done, Amanda .
You understood the principles very well, most assignments have the correct perspective. It is not yet natural, but that is normal, it needs a lot of practice.
One sketch is rather bizarre:



I assume this is one object. But then - sides being parallel - it can only have one VP to the back. Remember the parallel railroad tracks, this would be very surrealistic:

There is no way around it, all VP's of horizontal lines lie on the same and only horizon line. Your problem stems from an error of observation (or possibly because of trying to draw from imagination).
Draw what you really see, don't be misled by knowledge/memory of how the subject looks in an abstract environment.
You can view from more above the table (high HL) or more from the front (low H). And remember, "horizon line" is a more scientifically sounding synonym for eye level.
High






Low





Both are correct, but not a mixture.
The form of the objects on the table (a lot of the top plane visible) suggest a high HL.




Keep up the good work

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Thank you so much, Arnoud. I even did not think about the parallel one. I will practise more and upload the most updated drawing this weekend.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

I practise more for books on a table. And I found a good place to draw a parallel one at home-the bedding room aisle.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Hello!

I know I was gone for a while (again) but here are my assignments for the Perspective class. I was a bit confused at first because one of the four boxes I drew (the one at the top) slants closer together towards the end and I couldn't figure out how to show that with perspective unless it was three point perspective.














Thank you,
SaharM.

Re: Basics 101: Class 2 - Foundation of Perspective

Good job SaharM
I see you understand the basic principles.
But a few clarifications:
-- this class is only about the basic rules / constructions of perspective. It treats only rectangular forms. Choosing a box with slanting top brings you outside the scope of this class. There are advanced methods to construct the perspective of slopes, but it is definitely NOT 3PP. 3PP applies to rectangular forms.


-- this class is specifically about perspective, but that does not mean that the general motto of the classroom no longer applies: "draw what you see". I'm not a carpenter, but I don't believe that you really saw the legs of the stool like that:




-- Remember the basic principles: "There is only one horizon".
Left and right are completely discordant:




These are minor errors, you did very wel in general, please move on to class 3
