I'm not new to drawing, I even work. But the perspective is very difficult for me. It took me years to realize that 1,2 points are conditional, and 99% of the time we see the world in 3 points. It took me a few more years to realize that this should be at the subconscious level. I have to draw millions of boxes so I don't have to think. And here I am again. It will never be enough. And I have to find the strength not to reflect.
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?
Hey everyone, I just started the Drawing Basics course. I'm posting my first assignment. I did this drawing before watching the demo. I'm trying to develop my eye for seeing light and shadows. I find that the most tricky. I'm also trying to free up a bit when I draw. I'm looking forward to the process, I'm going out to get some softer pencils today.
Before and after. I am pretty happy. It proves to what extent one needs to understand the theory and learn the techniques before relying on intuition. I did not respect the assignment for the highlights in the hair. The right eye is higher too, a lot to improve on, but educating myself to be patient with the lay in, as well as understanding the values and correctly using them in the shadows especially, are some of my biggest challenges.
