Here is the Foundations DRAWING SP17 – WEEK 12 assignment. Again you must 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.
Practice drawing a simple house in two point perspective. Then, start to add more complex features: a chimney, trees, a pattern on the sides or roof of the house etc.
Here is an example of a City in two point perspective, similar to your homework assignment. Feel free to use reference images and imagination to draw your city of the past or future!
Here is the Foundations DRAWING SP17 – WEEK 11 assignments. Remember, begin with the HORIZON LINE… then frame the composition… then establish the VANISHING POINT.
Also be sure to do the reading CHAPTER 4 of creative perspective … its in the post below!
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.
READ THIS CHAPTER BEFORE YOU DO YOUR HOME WORK!
Hello Class! Welcome to the exciting world of TWO POINT PERSPECTIVE!
One Point Perspective or Parallel Perspective point perspective works well for situations like the one below, where the viewer is oriented directly in front of a set of parallel lines like railroad tracks or a long hallway.
But what if you want to show the viewer something from an angle?
Two point perspective uses two vanishing points set well apart on the horizon line. The rule of thumbs here is sets of parallel lines must be either vertical or recede toward one of the two vanishing points.

AND … Here are a couple of additional tutorials to get you started!
AND a slightly more advanced one…
I picked this place as it was my favorite spot to be when i feel depressed, also it has a special place in my heart because it remimds me of Alexandria, Egypt. The place i grow up seeing all time
The place I chose to draw is my grandfathers old house. I have my best and worst memories on this house which is why this is my favorite place. This house is old so it’s going to be taken down and replaced with a “new and better” house. I was proud I drew the house the best I could but I still feel like I can do better so I plan on drawing it as often as I can before my time is up and gets taken down.
The place I chose to draw is my house’s livingroom because it’s the single room that brings everyone together. This room is meaningful because it’s the first place I see when I wake up in the morning and the last place I find myself at the end of the day. It’s the single place in the house where you can sit down to eat, to talk, to watch a movie, to argue and to talk about life. Four walls full of positive, negative memories.
The place that I chose to draw that was special to me was my aunt house because to me that is my second home. When I was little, my mom would always drop me off at my aunt house before going to work every night. Around the holiday season especially Christmas I would always spend tye night at my aunt house waking up the next day on Christmas day. Even now that I’m older I would always go over there to visit and it’s funny because now I have the keys to the house. There will never be a home like this ever again.
