Creative Perspective Chapter 4

Hello Class!  Welcome to ONE POINT PERSPECTIVE!

To create a drawing from One Point Perspective you need to know a few basic things. One Point Perspective is also called Parallel Perspective because YOU are parallel to the objects that you will be drawing. Also, vertical lines are parallel and horizontal lines are parallel and the back edges of objects that recede in the distance are parallel to the front edges of those objects.


Below is your required reading of the week.




Foundation Drawing: Value Sketchbook Assignment Hoa Vu

Park Bench On a Not So Sunny DayMy Bulky WalletMailboxyThe Forgotten One

Ugh… the title’s not showing up… again.


Top Left: Park Bench On a Not So Sunny Day (I thought I could catch the bench at 12:00 where the sun is practically exploding through the sky but what I didn’t realize until I was about halfway was that there was a handball court/wall blocking the sunlight)

Top Right: My Bulky Wallet (Self Explanatory)

Bottom Left: Mailboxy (It looked like he had character. Dignity comes with remaining in position)

Bottom Right: The Forgotten One (Once you see what I did on the archivable paper you’ll see why he’s the forgotten one. And yes, he’s real. I know, I have a picture of him if you don’t believe me)

The aim for this assignment was so that way we could see how value affects the objects and how they can also relate to  each other. And as the Professor said, shading makes anything look good.

The only thing that I really struggled with was the “shiny effect” of an object. What do I mean by that? Well, for instance Mailboxy had a little shine coming from the top, from where the sun bounced off. I didn’t know how to have that “shiny effect” so I just left that part white. Also for the My Bulky Wallet the logo that is on the wallet was also shiny so I didn’t know how to give that the “shiny effect”. Otherwise, I think I did okay. Another thing was my lines are never straight. The Professor gave me a tip and whenever I try it it just doesn’t work. Maybe it just takes practice. Lots, and lots of practice.


Foundation Drawing: Isometric and Oblique Drawings Hoa Vu

Oblique and Isometric Drawing 1Oblique and Isometric Drawing 2

I don’t know why it isn’t showing up but I titled the drawings: Oblique and Isometric Drawing 1 and 2, respectively.

I guess the main point of doing these drawings is so that way we can figure out how to draw objects like that in that angle. I feel like often (especially in this class) we draw based on perspective so with this new skill we can probably do things like action figures or other items for the basic layout. I mean, in animation for instance, I would sometimes see for the 3D modules that they could rotate the character/object all around. I’m probably rambling now anyways but I think I explained myself to the point where your eyebrow isn’t shooting through the roof.

One thing that I struggled with was doing diagonals, like for the drawing on the right, the rabbit ears, especially in the isometric was a struggle.

I know that I posted this is kind of past its due date… but I really, really, really didn’t want to be the first person to post something here. It’s like a brand new couch. You feel iffy about sitting there because you don’t want to ruin it.
