Basic Perspective - Final Assignment

  • SVS OG

    @baileymvidler This looks really well done! The thing that catches my eye is the open door - the top of the door should have a much steeper skew to it much like the room itself and i think it is drawn too short as though it would not fill the space of the open door when closed - where you place the vanishing point for the door on the horizon line will determine the steepness of the top - i am thinking too that the door when lengthened might actually intrude into the space of the rectanglular object in front of it so much so that it would pierce the plane that we see so that might need to be pull forward a bit - I included the quick draw over to show just how dramatically the room is pushed in perspective - it is easier to imagine how the door might look this way i think - I hope you don't mind me cluttering up your thread with this (i can always remove it if you want ๐Ÿ™‚ I could be wrong on this stuff too so feel free to ignore


  • @TessaW That's a good point! I'll make sure to add depth to the door, window, and clock during the details pass. Thanks!

    @davidhohn Thank you for your response! I probably did overthink it a bit. Although @Kevin-Longueil's edit demonstrates what I felt was goofy about the walls. I going to try extending the RVP waaaayyy out like you suggested, and see if that helps correct the fish-eye effect! Thanks again!

    @Kevin-Longueil Thanks for taking the time to make the edit!

  • Okeydoke, so I extended the vanishing points wayyyyy out, as suggested. I also cropped out the third wall on the left, because I felt like it was a little awkward. And I think it looks better! Much less fish-eye.

    I ended up changing the floor plan a bit, and Iโ€™m turning it into a finished portfolio piece! Line art is almost complete, need to finish up some textures, then color. Constructive criticism is appreciated, as always. ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Local values. Goal for next piece: start thinking about values BEFORE inking the whole thing.


    I actually found that itโ€™s easier to check values with line art turned off.


  • @baileymvidler Looks great! The value study reads really well too, just by itself. I would love to be able to just draw in values like some people can but I canโ€™t seem to get my head around it.

  • Looks great! Love the scene you've turned it into. Maybe the door frame is a little short? Not actually sure if it is, but that was the only thing giving me any pause.

  • @Aaron_T Thanks!

    @TessaW Oh, yeah, I can see that. That's an easy fix. Thank you!

  • Finished piece! Thank you to everyone who gave input.


  • Cute! Love how it turned out.

    @baileymvidler This is excellent! Way to take the basic shapes to a finished piece!

  • @TessaW @davidhohn Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚
