Ladytruck III. I spent the most time constructing this one so I think it’s a little better.

I’m still struggling but it’s getting clearer. Some of my wheel ellipses still seem wonky but I’m closer to getting the wheels in the right place. I have to send a shout out to Rachel Dawn Owen’s for help with that!!! Thanks again, Rachel.

This is getting a bit easier but I doubt I’ll get to level 2 any time soon. My big Q right now is how to determine the inside and outside of the wheels (without a reference.) I’m having trouble doing that intuitively.

My last attempt to do the demo, for now. I still got very confused while executing this.

Excuse me Mr. Teacher .. didn't you tell us to make it in 3 point perspective? Also ... why do I feel like the proportions of your boxes are a bit ... wonky? ^^

Yes, the professor's demo looks like it's in 2-pt perspective, which is what I'm sticking with because this is hard enough already. YOU did a great job with it...

Wow. This seems so hard. I am working small scale just to have an easier time with the lines. This is a paper doll cutout of a monster truck. I know there are several mistakes. I had to use some color to finish my drawing just to make this assignment seem like something else. Sigh. I’ll keep working on it.

Here's my 10? 12? attempt at the cylinder in a cube with ellipses, ground out with many messy lines that just get thicker and thicker. I'm still working on my girltruck that spews out clean air, is covered with leaves and flowers, and emits drugs that make everyone in the world peaceful.

Guys... I give up.... I am not even able to draw the ellipse correctly inside/within (??) the square. And the second ellipse does not change in perspective... ?!?!

Dear Sniggy: Don't give up. This exercise is doable but I'm finding it requires many attempts and I'm not having much fun. "Intuitive" and "exact" are two different animals.

Big Q on timestamp 7:18 and lesson note: "The minor axis is at the same angle as the receding lines of the box and crosses the center point." Is this the same as saying: "The minor axis must to to the vanishing point?"

I think my attempt on my own was way more successful than trying to copy this demo. Prof. P, it looks like you did this in 3-pt perspective. Would it be easier in 2-pt?

Everybody's comments so far have been very helpful, starting with USE A HARDER PENCIL. :)

Here are heads 11-19. Same thing. There are multiple images of the same photo because I'm trying to show process. I had a particular problem with 18. I had trouble with the photos with the dark background. Next time, I will just print out the head and use the printout as a guide.

Here are heads 1-10. I'm sorry for so many images, but I'm trying to show process. I don't have digital tools. Thank you!

I think I finally figured something out with the kitchen drawing. I first have to find the box that is the SPACE in which the kitchen sits and ignore the spaces around it. This is a redraft of the perspective drawing of my kitchen, which is pretty close to what I see when I stand in the dining room and look into the kitchen from the side. I'd like to try this by doing a 1-pt perspective drawing, but I think it will be a distorted view. It might be easier, though, to depict the kitchen interior in 1-pt perspective.
