illustrations by Andrew Robinson, David Chelsea
Which of these pix is 2PtV? Which is 3pt? Notice that the view of the western town includes the horizon without looking bad or weird.
Also attached, as promised: the handout from David Chelsea's Perspective! for Comic Book Artists that shows what happens when you you shift your 3pt view away from the equilateral triangle, and a B- specimen of Assignment 5 (the line drawing of gift boxes).
Here's a better statement of the assignment:
Read Chapters 8,9
Using two point vertical and 3 point perspective complete a drawing of three inanimate objects. The objects can be anything you please but each must be different from the other 2.
Two objects should be drawn in three point and the third in two point vertical. All three objects must work together IN THE SAME DRAWING.
Remember that in 2 point vertical one vanishing point must be at the centre of vision on the horizon the other should be directly above or below.
With 3 point perspective 2 points must be on the horizon and the third should be above or beneath, placed an equal distance from the other two forming a triangle with equal sides.
DO NOT SHOW THE HORIZON IN YOUR IMAGE.
Special attention should be paid to the scale of objects in relation to each other. You may include a background for extra credit.
Your drawing should be 9" x 12" or larger. You may add value if you wish.
ALL WORK DONE FOR THIS CLASS SHOULD BE AS REALISTIC AS POSSIBLE, ANY STYLISATION OR DISTORTION WILL BE PERCEIVED AS A FLAW.
Your grade will depend on your understanding of the principles and constructions involved in the assignment as well as the complexity, accuracy and detail of your drawing. Composition, line quality, clarity and cleanliness will also be factors. Going beyond the call of duty is strongly encouraged as long as you remain true to the brief. Show what you are capable of.
