1 point perspective:

A drawing has one-point perspective when it contains only one vanishing point on the horizon line. This type of perspective is typically used for images of roads, railway tracks, hallways, or buildings viewed so that the front is directly facing the viewer. Any objects that are made up of lines either directly parallel with the viewer’s line of sight or directly perpendicular (the railroad slats) can be represented with one-point perspective. These parallel lines converge at the vanishing point.

Two point perspective:

A drawing has two-point perspective when it contains two vanishing points on the horizon line. In an illustration, these vanishing points can be placed arbitrarily along the horizon. Two-point perspective can be used to draw the same objects as one-point perspective, rotated. One point represents one set of parallel lines, the other point represents the other.

——————————-

Three-point perspective:

Three-point perspective is usually used for buildings seen from above (or below). In addition to the two vanishing points from before, one for each wall, there is now one for how those walls recede into the ground. This third vanishing point will be below the ground. Looking up at a tall building is another common example of the third vanishing point. This time the third vanishing point is high in space.

 

 

 

————————-

IN-CLASS 10/22 > create 6 drawings in your small sketchbook

-3 drawings for each perspective listed  (1 & 2 point), we will deal with 3-point later.

-Use the drawings below for inspiration. Use hard edged shapes to simplify the process.

-Upon completion of the 6 small studies, complete 2 more drawing in your large sketchpads. One drawing will employ 1-point, and the other will employ 2-point. These drawings should include a minimum of three hard edged shapes within the composition. Determine a light source (arbitrary yet consistent), and proceed to shade the appropriate planes.

————————-

HOMEWORK for 10/27:

-Read ch. 5 SPACE in your text & write down (in sketchbook) 3 discussion questions that will aid in class discussion

-Copy the following 4 drawings in your sketchbook. 1 per page

-You must define your horizon, and vanishing points. All lines MUST carry on to their respective vanishing points (like in the examples). Use varied line quality to differentiate the form from the guide line.

2-point

PROJECT 1 – CRIT
What is a critique?
What formats might it take?
Who is involved in a critique?
What should a critique accomplish?
What is proper critique etiquette?


view 18”X24” individual works (radio tower)
Discuss:
-Scale/Proportion (define)
-Line Quality (weight,tone,direction,length,etc.)
-Unity (individually/communally)

view animations
-What is the most successful aspect of this work
-What are the weaknesses of this work?
-What could have been done differently to overcome said weaknesses?

INSKETCHBOOK: Write a paragraph in response to the question of venue.
-How does viewing these images in sequence with other images alter our expectations, criticisms and praises, vs. one solo static image mounted to wall?
-How does viewing these drawings as digital animations alter our reception?
-How did knowing the drawings would be combined into an animation affect how you drew them?
-Did you ever consider your audience, or venue, during the making of these drawings?

-LARGE DRAWING: Review your work in comparison to the other drawings.
-After reviewing ALL works in your sketchbook answer the following:
-Does your drawing appear to follow the communal guidelines of scale and placement on page?
-Evaluate your ability to translate accurate scale and proportion.
-What could be improved in your drawing?
-What is your drawing’s greatest strength.

18 SMALL DRAWINGS: each student will review their work in comparison to the other drawings viewable via animated gifs on class website)
In sketchbook:
-write what could be improved upon in the drawings?
-What did you learn from your larger drawing that informed your process for these 18 drawings?
-Discuss the hardships and benefits of drawing the same object from 18 vantage points.
-Did you use varied line quality?
-Were you able to successfully retain unity amongst all 18 drawings?
