A cylinder is a powerful starting point for many designs. Here, I'll show you how to successfully construct one.

Make sure you draw the HL next time, it's easier for me to give feedback if I know what you were thinking when you were drawing these. What I can say is; 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

Hello! Really good job! 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. Hope this helps!

Here are submissions for the assignment. I do it digitally because I feel I must up my line confidence digitaly. But I make it a point to never control+z or to erase. I also don't have any pen pressure. I want to treat it like it was ink and not hide my mistakes.

Nice! 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.

Personally, I took a lot of benefit from @Marshall Vandruff’s course when learning about ellipses a few years ago, so that’s what I’d recommend: https://marshallart.com/SHOP/all-products/all-videos/1994-perspective-drawing-series/

Unfortunately I don't have as much time as I'd like for drawing and this course. But I'll try to get as much done when I can. Shapes can be difficult lol

Looking good here, yet some of the ellipse degrees seem too narrow on your 3rd assignment. Keep in mind the encompassing box and your minor axis when thinking about this.

Hi, the section is explained very well. However, I struggle with the last assigment. How do I fulfill "they should have different vanishing points but feel as if they have the same horizon line". I wouldn't even know how to do that for boxes. I think I am missing the point how to introduce more than one pair of vanishing points if you have to depict multiple objects (boxes, cylinders etc.) that it still feels like they are in the same "room or place".

Short trick answer - when you have 1 pair of VPs, you can create another one by moving VPs on horizon line by same distance in same direction :) Long answer - checkout drawabox or perspective books

Small update** We reviewed the video file and it looks like the render for it was corrupted and ended at the 5min mark. We've reached out to Antonio and are waiting for him to re-render the footage for the first lesson. As soon as we have that we'll replace the video. I'm sorry for the delay in getting this first lesson fixed.
