Join Amy Wynne for an in-depth discussion in this video Transitioning building blocks: Freehand sketching, part of Drawing 2-Point Perspective.
- [Voiceover] Hopefully your drawing's…looking similar to mine,…but right now it's time to take the training wheels off.…I think you should have the confidence now to start…building this scene into your own vision.…So we've provided a start state for you…in the exercise file,…so let's take a look at this without the grids.…So here we go.…We're taking the training wheels off.…All right?…So just relax, grid's not there.…But we have such a strong foundation because…we've used the grid to place our basic shapes.…
We've used it to place our furniture,…our basic walls, our windows.…So this is our playground.…This is totally our playground.…The basic shapes are clear.…So let's jump in.…I'm gonna start hand drawing,…and I'm gonna start transitioning these shapes…into something more to my liking.…This looks a little stark.…So I'd like to start here with my desk.…My desk is really important.…As an artist, I like to have a nice place to work.…So right now we have this basic shape.…I'm gonna start by creating a little bit more…
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.
