Final Perspective Drawing

IMG_2055
In Art so far this quarter, we have learned about drawing in perspective. Before learning it, I barely knew how to do this. I didn't know what a "vanishing point" or a "horizon line" was. Those are just some of the terms we learned in Art. Using these terms are basically making drawing in perspective a lot easier and correct. In my drawing, without a vanishing point, my drawing would not be correct and it would be harder to draw it. In this drawing there are a lot of things I would change. I would've drawn it darker, it looks a lot better in real life than in this picture. I'm sure I made mistakes that I can't really identify. If I were to give someone advice on perspective drawing, I would definitely tell them to take it step by step, follow the rules of perspective drawing, and inform themselves on what a vanishing point, horizon line, ect. is. The resource that really helped me the most is the Slideshare on step by step of the wall, it really showed me what to do in order and what was important, I don't know what I'd do without that.

One thing that I learned about during this project that I did not know before is how to draw orthogonal lines from the vanishing point to any point in the room. Learning this made drawing much easier because I could draw the table as well as the windows in three dimensions. If I did this assignment again, I would improve my observations of the room. I didn't pay much attention to the actual placement of the tables or the stools. My advice to someone working on a perspective drawing would be to always start at your vanishing point. I made several attempts to give a window its depth without bringing the ruler back to the vanishing point, and this is an obvious mistake. Ms.Hull's tutorial and the Instructables one point perspective resource helped me the most in the completion of this project.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

One thing I have specifically that I've learned was how to make things look more realistic. Especially 3d models. I have learned how to create 3d models and how to make them look like real. 

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

Learning this made my drawing better in important ways. It made my drawing look even better and it really looks like how the room looks like in real life!

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If i did this assignment again, I would try to color it was it look in real life. 

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

To that someone would be not to rush it too fast. And if you make mistake it's perfectly fine because then you will learn from it and make it look way better! Also know about vanishing point to make your drawing better and more attractable. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

Resources that have helped me was the one resource that we got from Ms.Hull. It showed how to do step my step drawing and what are possibly the consequences that we might have to face. Plus resources that have shows 3D models and how they are done.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

One thing that I learned is the simplicity of the drawing because all you have to draw are three kinds of line: horizontal, vertical, and orthogonal lines to make a whole entire drawing of the art room. I also learned the importance that a vanishing point has on you project. This is because it really makes the drawing look realistic to a eye that looks at it. Another thing that I learned is the importance of a ruler and making a nice and neat straight line because it makes you picture look a lot better. 

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

By learning this things I was able to look at the room and just see the rectangles, orthogonal lines, horizontal, and vertical lines. So learning these things above really allowed me to break down the room into something more simple. Also learning the importance of different tools allowed my drawing to be better because it was more sharp, clean and neat.  

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I could do this project again something I would do differently would be to tart in the back wall and then do the side walls. This is because by doing that I have a better perspective of the relationship the things that need to be drawn on the side walls have to the back wall. In other words I have a better idea of how to draw the other things in the room by doing the main back wall.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

If I were to give someone advice on this drawing that was doing one perspective for the first time I would say yes it is hard. However when you feel like you just cant do it anymore and you want to tear you hair out you need to push through that and just breath because you can do it and can get it done. Another thing I would say is when you are looking at the drawing don't look at the final idea of how you have to draw the room. Just think about each line that need to be drawn and by the end of each step you take it will turn out okay. Because I know I was so stressed because all I was thinking about was the fact that I have to draw the art room but is you think about it, it is just three lines being brought together to make the drawing. No stress

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resources that helped me the most was the step by step walk through of the drawing of the room. However as I have talked to many of my classmates some said that it just confused them more so it all depends on the person because I found it helpful to me drawing mine. Another thing that I have that I found so helpful was my dad because he taught perspective drawing for many many years and majors in it so if you have anyone in you family or friends that can help don't be afraid to ask.

Final One-Perspective Drawing

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

In the time of completing my one-perspective drawing, I learned a lot about the different types of lines. When I first heard about the 3 lines that are used to complete this drawing, I'd never heard of an orthogonal line. Yet, I then learned that it's basically a fancy word for a diagonal line.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

It helped my work look more realistic and advanced. For example, when making things for my drawing 3D, it helped to use each of the 3 lines, rather than making up shapes.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I had to complete this project again, I'd definitely use my class time more wisely. ANother thing regarding the project that I would do would be to take more time to make my floor tiles more precise and accurate.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My main advice would be to take your time. This project took a lot of trial and error, drawing and erasing,and etc.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The one resource that helped me the most was my brother. He refused to draw anything on my paper, but when he'd draw an example on a blank piece of copy paper, it really helped me understand how to draw the specific thing that I had trouble with.

Prior to beginning this project I’d never heard of one-point perspective drawing, or a center point. But with this new knowledge, my drawings became more spatially logical - meaning things were proportional in relation to distance. If I had to do this project again, I’d focus more on details (verifying if lines were truely horizontal/vertical, how to draw stools, including drawings on ceiling panels, etc.) and I’d try to include more things from the right wall of the drawing.

Some advice I’d give someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before is: always use the center point - even if it looks correct double check, because usually it isn’t. Also, I found http://www.olejarz.com/arted/perspective/ to be the most useful resource during this project because it was simple and straight-forward.

1. One thing I learned specifically during the process of drawing the room was how to make things appear as if they are out of the paper. I used to to if I’d ever draw make it all flat. This skill will help me in the future by helping me draw things for the rest of the school year in class.


2. Learning to add 3d to make flat shapes helped my drawings because otherwise I don’t have an image of a classroom. Are classrooms flat? Is the environment of a classroom flat? Is our vision? No. Making my work 3D has shown the real parts of the room we see every b band. I would fail if I was unable to make my drawing 3D.


3. If I did this assignment differently, I’d love to find a better way to make a table and chair. I had a hard time and look somewhat poor. There is always room for improvement, otherwise why would we be doing this?


4. If I were to tell someone about perspective drawing, I’d say panicking is the worst thing to do. When you really work it starts looking special but just saying how do we do this impossible work will do nothing but hurt the potential of your work and educational discipline.


5. A resource that helped me other then time was if you were stuck you could ask a friend to assist you in whatever you need help in. I needed help with my window to the left. I asked a friend how I go about doing that and it helped a lot.

Portraits: Bailey Collins Q3 Art

The last few months I have been practicing portrait photography. I have researched the style and technique of some of the greatest portrait photographer. This type of subject is really hard for many photographers to master. It is often out of a comfort zone. I have taken photos of my friends. Photo shoots on adventures in the city. I spent a lot of time discovering an interest in street style photography as well. This would be documenting any interesting subjects I find. I have been learning from the style of the greats such as Susan Sontag, Annie Leibovitz, Diane Arbus, Cecil Beaton, and Edouard Boubat. These people have an eye for illuminating the beauty and oddness of the human body and shape, and especially emotion.

Diane Arbus: Portrait Photographer


Diane Arbus was an American portrait photographer. She was known for her black-and-white images of odd or marginal people, such as circus performers, transgenders, and dwarves.

She was born in 1923 in New York City to a wealthy family. Her parents owned a popular department store on Fifth Avenue, called Russek’s, who specialized in furs. She wasn’t affected by the Great Depression during the 1930s. When she was eighteen, she married her childhood sweetheart, Allan Arbus. They had two daughters together, Doon and Amy.

Allan went to school for photography. He was a photographer for the Vietnam War for the U.S. army Signal Corps. After the war, he became a fashion photographer for ads, commercials, and Russek’s. Diane played her role as her husband’s assistant and sometimes fashion stylist.

In 1956, Diane quit the commercial photography business to study under another photographer. She worked on assignment for Harper’s Bazaar and Esquire. She was doing her own photo projects in her freetime. This is when she began developing her own type of style and artistic interests. The separation from the business eventually led to their marriage separation in 1959.

Diane’s style of photography wasn’t simple. Each image was very important and thought through. She would spend weeks with a subject, following them home, and talking or listening to them. Diane Arbus took some of the most influential and honest portraits ever seen, and she was never very well known for the beautiful work she did.

In the 1960s, she taught photography at Parson’s School for Design and the Cooper Union in New York. Her first big exhibition of her work was at the MoMA in 1967, it was called “New Documents”.

Diane Arbus experienced depressive bouts throughout her life, sometimes changed her mood, or caused by symptoms of Hepatitis. July 26, 1971, she committed suicide in her New York apartment by taking barbiturates and slashing her wrists with a razor, she was 48 years old.

Recreation of some odd marginal type model. I tried to make the image hold sincere strong emotion, with a relaxed setting and took them in black and white.

Annie Leibovitz: Portrait Photographer


Annie Leibovitz is considered one of America’s best portrait photographers. She trademarked her style very early in her career when working for Rolling Stone magazine.

She was born October 2nd, 1949 in Waterbury, Connecticut. Her father was a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force. Annie and her five siblings moved around a lot with their father’s assignments. Her first pictures were taken when her father was stationed in the Philippines during the Vietnam War.

She studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. After college, she worked different jobs while she was experimenting with photography, including volunteering at a kibbutz in Amir, Israel during 1969.

In 1970, she applied for a job at Rolling Stone magazine, Jann Wenner was so impressed with her portfolio, she was hired as a staff photographer. Within two years, in 1973, Wenner promoted her to chief photographer, the position she held for 10 years. When Leibovitz was working for the magazine, she was given the opportunity to photograph some of most influential musicians and celebrities in history. She had a style of portrait photography that used color so intensely for mood and poses of the body that wasn’t being published anywhere else. She produced some of the most thought provoking images of her time. Her style of photography made a very specific image for what we know and love about Rolling Stone magazine and their photographs.

She is most well known for her photograph of a nude John Lennon curled around his fully clothed wife, Yoko Ono, taken on December 8, 1980, just hours before his death.

Leibovitz left Rolling Stone in 1983, began working for Vanity Fair. Her subjects were more ranged when she worked for the entertainment magazine. This is where she took the iconic images of pregnant, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg submerged in a bathtub of milk.

In 1987, she won a Clio Award for her portraits for an American Express “Membership” Campaign. In 1991, her collection of black-and-white prints were put in an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.

She has had exhibits, nominations for prestigious awards, books of her work, all that are glorifying the incredible images she has taken throughout her life.

This recreation would not have a real celebrity, so I took photos of a more applicable subject/model.

Q3 Art Edgar Pacio

I was very content with the lessons DrawSpace covered this quarter. The drawings were more challenging and required skills from the previous lessons. I was also glad that the lessons began to turn away from cartoons and start requiring me to draw realistic looking humans; these lessons needed skill in cross hatching which i still have a bit of trouble doing, but I look forward to getting better at it. Aside from the DrawSpace lessons I also drew in my personal sketchbook. Most of my personal drawings this quarter revolved around tv shows and movies, like Jane from Breaking Bad, Gogo Yubari from Kill Bill, and Mia from Pulp Fiction. I also drew Kurt Cobain.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. One thing that I learned about that I didn't know before would be how to draw 3 dimensional chairs and tables. At first it seemed like the most complicated thing to learn how to do. But once I got it down, it wasn't so bad. Another thing I learned about were orthogonal lines.


b. I think this really helped with spacing my drawings in the future. some things would just be all over the place. But when I keep everything in the right spot, it looks great because everything is where it is supposed to be.


c. If I did this this again, I would try not to draw so hard on the paper. We only got one paper. So when I messed up and had to erase, it was a huge struggle to get those lines out.


d. My advice would be to make sure that your lines are straight and accurate and are at the right measurement. If they aren't, that could totally change the perspective of the picture.


e. I think my classmates were a big help. Some of them were showing me how big to make my lines and I got to see examples of how others did it. Also, the website really helped. It delivered a step by step instruction on how to do everything.

One thing that I learned that I didn't before was about the orthogonal lines. I learned about one point perspective and horizontal and vertical lines, but not orthogonal. 
Learning about orthogonal lines really made my drawings look better. Knowing that my drawings look more realistic instead of trying to look perfect or on point. 
If I was to do this assignment differently, I would have spent more time on the actual drawing than a rough copy. I seemed to have wasted a lot of time on the rough copy and didn't manage my time well with the final piece. My advice to someone who's never drawn a one point perspective is to remember the three important lines: Horizontal, Vertical, and Orthogonal. 
I think they are the 3 most important things when drawing a one point perspective drawing because it can't be a one point perspective drawing if these 3 lines aren't included in it. The resource that really helped me the most was the slide that Ms. Hull created. I was able to see a visual of the side of the room, I was drawing and each step was explained clearly so I was able to catch up despite my time management.

​1. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
a. One thing I learned specifically that I didn't know before was how to draw a door in perspective. It was very challenging since it was my first time learning how to draw it but however, I think that I did a nice job overall. 

2. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

a. Learning this made my drawings better because my door didn't look fake or like it was glue onto a wall. Unlike an actual door which comes out of the wall and has a border. This skill will also help me in my future drawings as well. 

3. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

a. If I could redo this assignment I would change the wall I choose to draw. First off, because I think I could have went out of the box and tried something different. Secondly, Change how I drew the stools. I think they look quite fake and not up to my standards. 

4. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

a. My advice to someone who has never drawn in a one point perspective would be to follow you vanishing point because it is very helpful through each step. Secondly to measure evenly on both sides of your project. My last piece of advice would be to take your time and make mistakes so you can learn from them. 

5. What resource helped you the most and why?

a. I think my past projects we did in class helped me the most because it gave me the resources to look back and see step by step how to make various a vertical and horizontal lines turn into a 3-D room from perspective.

Art Room





One thing I learned was about drawing in the perspective of your object. I had learned about bird’s eye, and worm’s eye view. Learning about this helped me make my drawing more realistically so it could look almost like someone was looking at the real thing. If I had the chance to do this assignment over again, I would focus more on the shelf that I made and I would try to add more detail to the picture so it looks more realistic. My advice to someone who has never done this before, is that you should do a lot of trial and error because you are going to get it wrong on your first try unless you're really artistic. Just keep trying and you are bound to get it right. The resource that helped me the most would be the tutorials about how to draw the art room. It would've been a lot harder for me if I didn't have it.

Bundy, Kenyatta; Q3 Artwork

For this quarter of Advanced Art, I decided to focus on the human anatomy, more specifically, the skeletal system. This is due simply to the difficulty that comes with properly drawing bones, skulls and joints. I decided to draw 1 hand, 1 normal skull, and 1 sugar skull. The sugar skull was just something different that I wanted to do in order to step outside of just normal skull and bones. Although their are few pieces, the quality of each piece is what I wanted to focus on, which meant spending numerous hours on each drawing. The minimum amount of time I spent on a single drawing was 4 hours, with 7 hours being the maximum for a drawing, that being the sugar skull. I also noticed over time that my drawing and specifically details were getting much better. I'm proud to say that I've definitely grown as an artist this quarter and I hope to expand that growth in the near future.

  In this quarter, I learned a lot about perspective. For example, I learned about the values of lines. I learned that different types of lines including: orthogonal, horizontal, and vertical, contribute to the vanishing point at which all lines in the drawing end up meeting at. This allowed me to see drawings as lines meeting at one place.

     I think that by learning about how lines in a drawing meet at one place, I was able to know if my lines were in the right direction. I was able to uses my artist eye to see where lines needed to be positioned. i believed that this allowed my drawing to come together.

      I think that if I did this assignment over, I would talk with Ms. Hull more. I believed that getting advice would have allowed me to get my lines aligned. I think that getting advice in general would have given me better results.

      If I were to give advice to someone who was doing this for the first time, I would definitely start with the fact that lines meet at one point. I would describe the vanishing point to them and show them my drawing. i would show them how lines, when they come together, make the picture cohesive. 

   One big help was the slide show Ms. Hull gave us. it allowed me to see how the picture came together. The slide show showed me how to bring my lines together. The slide show also help me develop my detail skills. The slides didn't show how to add in the ledges or the extra furniture, but after using some prior knowledge of lines, I was able to complete those parts.

Final Perspective Drawing

REAL ART FP
Throughout my time in Ms.Hull's art class I have learned many things. I have learned many artistic definitions from orthogonal lines to vanishing point. These are the two more important aspects in a one point perspective drawing. These have helped me with my drawing because I knew where to make things disappear and I also knew where some specific lines (orthogonal lines) in the drawing should be headed, which is directly to the vanishing point. If I were to do this assignment again I would spend more time adding as much detail as I possibly could. If you are a first timer to one point perspective drawing, one tip I would give you is to start off by finding your vanishing point. This is important because once you do this, you know where everything else should be pointed to. Some resources that really helped throughout this process were my art teacher Ms.Hull and certain links that she put up for preparation for this final project. For example: http://drawsketch.about.com/od/perspective/ss/1ptperspective.htm

Final Perspective Drawing

one point prespective
a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

I learned that one little point in your drawing paper can help more than anything. Without the little point on your paper, nothing will look like it supposed to. The little point helped with everything. It makes it easier to draw objects like tables and windows, than when you think you know where they go. 

b. How did learning this thing make your drawings better?

The little point (one perspective point) helped make my drawing better by guiding me where the next line would be drawn. The little point made everything easier, because all you have to do, to check if it your line is right, is check if it is in line with the little point. 

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If i did this assignment again, i would start my drawing early so i could add more things to the drawing. I could add more  detail, which i think helps with showing people how the room looks, when they have never seen it before. I could add color, to make the drawing more realistic, and showing the true colors of the room. I would also be a little more careful with how hard i draw a line.  

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before, is to stay calm and do not worry about ripping or making the paper dirty. Also to start early so they can have the chance to ask people for help, and find videos or slides that show how to draw a one point perspective drawing, because they can be real helpful. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resource that helped me the most was Mrs. Hulls slides, because the slides were clear and showed step by step how to do the room. It also had a real drawing in the slides, so it helped for me, because that is how i learn. http://www.slideshare.net/marciehull/perspective-step-by-step

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

One thing that I learned that I didn't know before was if your lines don’t connect to the middle point then your lines will become messed and in the end making your all drawing become messed up as well.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

I believe that learning about one point perspective makes my drawings better becasue it allows me to draw neater and my lines will also be neat as well.It causes your drawing to have order to show that you not only can follow steps but your good at being creative,

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I could do this assignment again I think I would try to complete a different wall and also try to not not make as many mistakes as I did.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My advice is that you have to have a lot of patience and willingness to never give up. I know that drawing is very hard and for someone who is not the best at it may feel as though giving up is the answer but you if you just ask for help and keep trying you'll get the hang of it.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

I had a couple of resources that help me through this process of drawing. I had the link that Ms.Hull put up to show step by step how to draw one side of the room. I had some of my classmates who helped me fix the mistakes I had and also I had my dad who is very good at teaching art help me along the way.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
     I learned that drawing in this type of perspective is not as challenging as I imagined it to be. All I needed to know were three lines, orthogonal, vertical and horizontal. 


b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?

   I learned that now doing art projects or projects that require some creative ability will not be as sloppy. I know now what I am capable of. 


c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

    I would skip doing the rough draft; therefore I could get more assistance with my finishing touches. Also, I could add some color. 


d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

    My advice will be to take your time, and remember it is only three lines. 


e. What resource helped you the most and why?

     Ms.Hull's step-by-step guide helped me the most, because it was straightforward and simple.

During this project I learned a lot on perspective drawing. I did not know there was so much you had to do, so many lines to draw. I learned how to make ceilings and make it look as if everything is getting smaller. Learning how to draw perspective made my drawings more accurate and more realistic. Now instead of just drawing random lines I use a ruler to make sure everything looks straight. 

If I could do this project again I would of erased less to make the drawing look cleaner. I would also put a little more detail into the room and not just keep it so blank. But it was really fun learning how to draw something new and different from what I would usually draw. 

If you want to get into perspective I would suggest using the internet to your advantage. Look up tutorials, tips and tricks on how to draw perspective. Also make sure all your lines are straight or else everything will look crooked. While I was drawing my piece, YouTube was really helpful. Also the site that Ms.Hull provided for our class, giving us a step by step tutorial.

Final Perspective Drawing

1.  What is one thing that you learned specifically that you did not know before?


One thing that I learned during this quarter in art was that if you knew how to draw three different lines that it would be much easier to draw.  I am not an artist so know that helped a lot.


2.  How did learning this thing make your drawing better?


Yes it helped a whole lot while drawing.  All I used was lines to complete this drawing and I believe it turned out great.


3.  If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?


One thing that I would do differently was not fold up the paper to be so small.  As I was drawing I found it harder and harder to draw with the creases that I made.  Another thing that I would change is how much empty space I have in my drawing.  


4.  What advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?


One piece of advice that I would give to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is that its all about the lines you draw.  You want to make them as straight as possible because that is what makes or breaks the drawing.


5.  What resource helped you the most and why?


The resource that helped me the most was the slideshow that Mrs.Hull put onto canvas for us.  On the slide were steps on how to complete our drawing.  This was very helpful because when I was lost I could go there for help.

Every time I try to upload the photo is goes upside down. Sorry.
