Assignment 11

Time Machine Assignment! 

Using the methods we learned in class, draw a city scene of the PAST or the FUTURE in two-point perspective. Use reference images from the internet to help you fill in architectural details or inspire your ideas.



Remember to always begin with the HORIZON LINE… then frame the composition… then establish your the VANISHING POINTS.  Keep in mind your VANISHING POINTS DO NOT NEED TO BE WITHIN THE PICTURE PLANE.

Also be sure to do the reading CHAPTER 5 of creative perspective … its in the post below!
