Today we had our first life drawing class, due to the Foundation students using the life Room we had to settle for our perspective drawing class to be moved forward.
We were taught that we should always use a horizon line as we need our object to have a base. Scale is of the utmost importance. The vanishing point is relevant to your eye-level, which relates back to the horizon line. Details fade as objects get further away.
We were taught this as we drew boxes upon boxes, and then we had to turn those boxes into spheres. Then we had to turn those boxes into buildings, characters, landscapes, etc. Here is what I produced:
Our homework for next week is to practice boxes and spheres. I’m concerned as I don’t understand perspective very well, but I shall try my best.
