My level 2 attempt. The lines connect to vanishing point make chaos...So you can see the perspective of my third stair is weird. hmmm....I would appreciate for some feedback and suggestions for how to keep lines clean. Thank you. ( and I will do this again later.)
I always struggle with fitting objects to composition. I spend a lot of time at the beginning stages moving vanishing points back and forth trying to make the character in the right place in the composition, and also large enough that I can show details, make some other object look far in the distance while at the same time trying to fit it on the page and not make any of that look odd :D
Here’s my one-point perspective room drawn from imagination. While brainstorming, a two-story study with a balcony came to mind. So I attempted it, even though in real life it would require three-point perspective. It took me a lot of thinking and revising to produce this. I learned a lot along the way, but there’s still many unresolved questions: 1. I struggled to figure out the relative position of objects. For example, given that we’re looking at the room from the left side, where should the balcony be - relative to the stuff behind it (corridor and the window at the end of the room)? Maybe it should shift more to the right since our viewpoint is on the left? More generally, I wonder how you know where to place things from a certain viewpoint..prbly lots of observation and practice. 2. Also, it was challenging to estimate objects’ relative size. Objects in the distance appear small, but how much smaller should I make them? Take the desk and chair in the corridor. My intuition tells me that I drew them too small. Any tips on getting the relative size right in perspective drawing? 3. Again, given our viewpoint from the left, should the railings of the middle balcony be closer to each other as they move to the right? Any other feedback is welcome :) Thanks!
This actually took me quite a long time, around 2-3 hours! I wanted to try something that might look cool, and just went with it. The majority of the time was spent just lining up things to the vanishing point and trying to get good horizontal and vertical lines, which I lacked in the level 1 project. I think the cabinet on the left isn't great, I think the lines converge above the vanishing point, but outside of that I don't notice anything too egregious! Always looking for constructive feedback, and have a nice day!
perspetive is something im very familiar So I used this assignment to focus on something I struggle, bringing life to a perspetive heavy scene. I bring to you the Exandra Alchemy house, runned by the plants Exandra animated using she´s patent magical vase. The faces on the vases are a ideia of is children so he can make friends of all the moving plants around the house. to the right he have the green house where new plants are grown to be processoced in the (not fineshed) workshop (middle, left) where are transformed in portions / ointments by the same plants, a bit grossome but effiency was no morals. (JK) I know he where not suposted to use circles. I also used shit in photoshop for vertivcal and horizontal lines but all converging lines are legit. english is nor my maing language so if you sopt any eros in my writing feel free to point it out
my attemps on the exercise. I feel like im still to stuck on contour / shape of the line instead of the shape of the shape if it makes sense XD also a chibi i made at work focused on shapes, in this sketch from imagination was a lot easier to focus on shapes.
1. Hierarchy - I went a little modest with the contrast in line weight. 2. Light Direction - Then I tried to push it a little. 3. Light Direction Imagination - A little more. 4. Observation - I like that graphic look of the plant, but it may not be the ideal decision every time.
Hey everyone! I’ll start my submission with a quick question. How do you go about constructing the heavier lines? I noticed that for me it’s tempting to go in the “scratchy lines mode.” I’m not sure that’s wise since I don’t want to turn that way of drawing into a habit. Using my whole arm, in this case, seems also a bit odd. Constructing a heavier line is almost like drawing small details. That’s why using the wrist and fingers would seem like the most natural way to go about it. Still, I’m curious how other people have approached this. Thanks! Now, regarding my submission. I tried two versions of the level 1 hierarchy method. The first one is where I used heavier lines for the overall contour and also tried to connect the rhino to the environment by using light lines for the soles of the feet and the grass. In the second version, I isolated the rhino completely from the ground and tried to bring more attention to its head and horns. There’s also my attempt for the level 1 light and shadow method where I um… tried my best. I think in all my attempts the lightest lines could have been thinner but the printed image turned out to be a bit darker than I thought. That’s why I had to make the lightest lines a bit thicker as well. I also gave the level 2 assignment a try. I’m not too familiar with how light and shadows work in an illustration but I gave it my best shot. I also drew some flowers from observation where I experimented more with the hierarchy method. Any feedback is welcome. Thank you!
is anyone else finding making tapered lines difficult? I feel that when I try and slow down so that it gets darker in the middle the lines becomes sloppier, but if I try and do a quicker and more confident line then it is usually uniform in its darkness
Choose the japonese rhino beetle for the aassigment, starting by observation some of the images i researched and then moving to imagining the beetle in diferent poses / expressions (keep refering to the references to see if was correct what I was doing) I used Pureref for organizing my references (if anyone interested in something to display / organizing ref is a great app to do so)
