  • but i think i will just leave the POV as it is.

    Hey Leah - it looks like you are asking for feedback so i hope you don't mind my muddled draw over. It looked like there might be multiple vanishing points and a tilted horizon in your drawing so i did a quick draw over - it is pretty hard to make out what i did now that i look a my drawing....the large box in the foreground has a different horizon line than the carpet it is sitting on is the main thing i tried to show - the multiple vanishing point are ok but they should all hit the same horizon line - i put the orange boxes on the lines to show the tilt of the perspective - i think all vertical lines should be perpendicular to the horizon line unless it is in three point perspective.... Anyways...hope this is not annoying feedback - maybe David will check and do a better job explaining...or let you know that i'm wrong 🙂

  • Hi Leah. Yay! I love to see people working on perspective. I would recheck the rug. It almost looks as if a couple of the lines (the ones parallel to the wall with the circle on it) are spreading farther apart, instead of receding toward a vanishing point. Or like Kevin mentioned, it could also appear that it's tilting. Either way, it doesn't quit seem to be following the same rules as the rest of the scene.



  • well iv tried more work on it, but something went wrong. going to start all over again! will try spend all evening on it. and kevin your right about tilted horizon line, im not sure how that could have happend bec before i started, i drew a horizon line and orthagonals to guide me but somewere along the way i must have tilted it somehow.
    thanks everyone for your feedback! as soon as ive got it drawn again i will post it again



  • ok i redid it a bit this time i checked my vanishing points really carefully! so what do you think of this?
    thanks eveyone for your feedback

  • @jenithornhill you mentioned you also use the wacom tablet. mine has all markings from the pen on it. is that normal? its pretty new, i only bought it on black friday... will it ruin the quality and sensitivity of thetablet?

    @Leah-Katz Looks very good!! Two vanishing points and one horizon 🙂

  • @Leah-Katz My old one had a lot of marking on it. I got a new one, the intuos pro.. and it has a smoother finish with no marks. I have been using this one for over a year now.



  • ok thanks. here is my assignment with tone added, next will be to add detail (and neaten up the tones!)
    what does everyone think? do the different tones make sensebasic perspective final assignment - with tone.jpg or not really?



  • @Leah-Katz if the tones are to show the light/shadow and the light source is the window then I'm not sure they're working yet. E.g. The floor would be a similar tone to the top surface of the bed and the side of the bed facing left, away from the window, would be one of the darkest. Sometimes drawing the arrow for the light direction helps me to think more clearly about what values the surfaces should be.
