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.

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.
