Basic Perspective Final Assignment
It took me 3 hours and multiple false starts, but I successfully worked my way through to this rough, but serviceable point. I know I can push this further by drawing more ellipse-based objects, adding more tone, etc., but after much struggle (and a bit of flubbing the grid), I think I managed to reflect the basic perspective concepts taught. Very happy with the lesson! I no longer feel like avoiding perspective, but actually look forward to practicing it more. Thank you, David Hohn.

@Faeowyn Hi. Great to hear! Love the mut in the frame lols. You did a good job. I know from the class he spoke about keeping the VPs off or out of the page but I also know how challenging it is when your working traditional.
Good job again,
@Heather-Boyd Hi, thanks for you comment! Yes, I remember him mentioning keeping the VPs off the page, and originally, I was going to try and keep the whole drawing in a 6x7 inch frame on the page, but admittedly, I lost control of that and realized the drawing would be too small for my confidence level, haha, so I ended up using the whole page instead. My sketchbook is about A4 size. I'll try a larger sheet of paper next time.

@Faeowyn It's all good, no worries. You can try a technique he mentioned also I think, with string (haha I think I used a measuring tape myself) and picked two VPs off my page that way I didn't have to worry about the size of paper, and the "sticky moldable eraser" can be used nicely for fixing your string to the table.
@Faeowyn it looks good! I always struggled with perspectives inside a room. And I’ve noticed that a lot of time rooms end up looking too big and empty when the perspective isn’t working. This looks right to me though. If you have a light table, you could trace it without the grid lines and see if it still works.
