Hello everyone, I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but my two ellipsis are looking very different from one another, the one closer to VP1 looks so much wider? I guess there is something off, but I can't tell what it is. Happy practicing!

if you haven't already tried, I did a few practices on a 2 point perspective grid to try to train my eye to notice tapering before I attempted without a grid.

Hello. Here is my assignment work. I've always struggled with cylinders, but the book recommendation plus the instructional video above I think has helped a lot. The HL and VP for the 1 point perspective is near the center and slightly up. The HL for the 2 point perspective is very high up, and I tried shifting VPs labeled with A, B, C, D.

Long time no see Antonio, been a while since Adam's mentorship lol. As soon as a saw your course on Proko, knew it would be my first class. Still so blown away by you ability and your ability to teach effectively. I've always really struggled with perspective, but it's honestly cause I didn't put in the work. But It's time to get working on it lol Critique me harshly, of course when you have the time! So excited for this course!

My first assignment! As I usually draw digitally, done this on my tablet as well, but without any stabilization whatsoever. Did erase though 😬 Proved to be harder than I thought, will try to make my lines more intentional. I feel like on paper you get some stabilization just through friction alone.

Hi, I attempted the exercise with a moderate success

Make sure your minor axis is converging towards a point that's on the HL (in assignment 3, cylinders 20, 10, 15 aren't doing this. + in a 2pp; when the minor axis is perpendicular to the HL, this will be a vertical cylinder. (if you'd construct this in a box, the ellipses will be placed in the top and bottom plane of that box.) You have some cylinders where the minor axis is vertical but you've drawn the cylinder as if we are looking straight at it

On the 1p and 2point perspective I wanted the support of the vanishing point lines. There are more of these I made without the supporting lines on pages not shown here. I'm able to do it but after looking at them I didn't like the repetitiveness of my ovals and depending on the direction they lost the appearnce of "space".

Good, remember that in a 1 pp (point perspective) all converging cylinders have circles as an ellipse. The degree of your ellipse only changes in a 1 pp with horizontal and vertical cylinders. + When a vertical cylinder gets closer to the HL, it's ellipse should become more and more narrow untill it's eventually flat (right on the HL).

same as with the Intuitive perspective post. I don't think I need help here, just havent figured out how to post without asking for help. I want to share my progress. I'll most likely need help/critique in the later lessons.

Here are the 3 cylinder assignments. Was hoping for some feedback if things are looking okay. The third one was a little weird but I think it's okay?

3 Assignments submission. 2 and 3 were really fun and super challenging while 1 was quite relaxing. I added colored numbers to the cylinders, I hope it makes critiquing easier.

Hello Tommy! Great work! I just want to point out something that a lot of people (including myself) get wrong. It is that Cylinders facing the viewer in 1pp never turns away and is always a perfect circle. I made some rough examples using a digital ruler to hopefully convey what I mean a bit more clearly. Have a good day!

My submission for the three assignments. I have to admit, I had to improve my perspective knowledge, before I could tackle the third assignment.

Hello, for your third assignment; When a vertical cylinder gets closer to the HL, it's ellipse should become more and more narrow untill it's eventually flat (right on the HL) Your vertical cylinders don't follow this rule + wthe minor axis is perpendicular to the HL, this will be a vertical cylinder. (if you'd construct this in a box, the ellipses will be placed in the top and bottom plane of that box.) You have a cylinder where the minor axis is vertical but you've drawn the cylinder as if we are looking straight at it

Make sure you don't draw too small (assignment 3), it's too easy to hide mistakes when you draw small. Thus you won't learn so much from doing that, try to fill up 1 page for each assignment :)

For assignment 2; Remember that in a 1 point perspective (1pp), all converging cylinders have a circle as an ellipse. The degree of your ellipse only changes (in a 1 pp) with horizontal and vertical cylinders.

Here's my attempt!!! Cylinders are my weakness. I did practice with boxes on a separate sheet before hand and I see a real progress!!!
