In this video, you'll be provided with a synthesis of all concepts DEMO drawing of exterior space.
- [Voiceover] When I walked around my…neighborhood last week,…and I found this scene,…I was totally inspired by the power lines,…the crosswalks and some of the building angles.…It's really important…to keep your initial spark,…your initial inspiration in mind,…because this is what you'll want…to communicate through drawing.…I started this sketch very loosely,…after finding my eye level,…and my vanishing points.…You can do the same with your chosen view.…Maybe you want to keep your own ghost diagram…of the perspective data you've collected…under your freehand sketch at first,…just to remind you how things line up.…
I do this quite often,…I make these preliminary perspective lines,…find my eye level,…and then once I get my preliminary sketch down,…I can just have the confidence to say…you know what, I don't need that guide anymore,…I can just let it go from here.…So this is the place at which we're going to start…working up this drawing a little bit.…Just so you can get a little window…on my process,…a little window on you know,…
Join artist Amy Wynne in this class as she demonstrates the basics of two-point perspective. After a brief demo of asymmetrical vs. symmetrical perspectives with 3D blocks, she takes us through more complex projects: an imagined street scene, complete with windows, doors, trees, and light posts, and an interior room with furniture. In chapter 5, Amy introduces strategies to strengthen your compositions by improving the illusion of depth. Practicing these techniques will breathe new life into your drawing and give you a new "perspective" on drawing.
