This might be too advanced and this is just a basic excersice for 1 point perspective. But I have some questions. Using 1 point perspective for an object that shows more than 2 planes (front and above or from below) is just something theorietical? Because When you see something from slightest angel it will be a second varnishing point? In the renaissance they used 1 point perspective even When they showed more sides because they hadnt learned other kinds of perspective yet. (Did you teach me that? :D ) In one of your courses I don’t remember wich you said if you see the frontplane undistorted with 90 degrees angles a perfect square you can’t see the side plane. Its an impossible box. So the boxes towards the sides in this practice are impossible boxes? Just theoretical?
Thank you Proko for these rytm excersices and your explenation of it! My main focus outside this base course is gesture rytm and anatomy and i want to be able to create my own poses from imagination that also look good and are dynamic. And it has felt as such a slow process. But these rytm excersices have actually allready start to give fruit! Yesterday i did my warm up excercises scribbles and sketches. And tried to make a figure drawing with a dynamic pose from imagination. And it was the first time i felt it actually looked good without reference!
I've gone back to your figure drawing course and have been doing 100 30 seconds beans as a part of my daily training and the folds and pinches are just something I struggle a lot with. Granted, I am on a timer when doing figure, but even in my lvl 2 drawings I feel like it just never crosses my mind to include these.
This is an attempt to observe proportions only using my eyes (which is how I get used to do). I find I tend to draw things wider when eyeballing. It's good to do this practice after last assignment. I feel I can get a more efficient and accurate proportion measurement by adjusting the ratio using both methods. Thank you Stan!
My problem in this is how to translate the feedback and how to do better the next tries. When the most measurements are a bit off its hard to know exactly When and what actually went wrong. It doesnt go better and better and better like i wish, its a rollercoaster where it goes better and worse and I alternate with wich measurments gone right and wrong. I think i should . Do it measurment by measurment as a excersice. Like just the head shape and take photo and get feedback. After that the eyes and so on. I just have hard to stop my self when on it drawing. But it would be good training to get more exact understanding what im doing wrong and right.
