One thing that I learned from this project is that the vanishing point is extremely important to all art forms. All of the lines I have made came from the vanishing point. I think that every drawing need a center to start with, so the vanishing point have to be the center of a room drawing.
Learning this made me draw better because now I know how to use the vanishing point to my advantage to draw a leveled drawing. For example, without the vanishing point, my room drawing will be uneven because I don’t have anything to focus everything on.
If I were to do this project again, I would spend more time adding details to the actually drawing instead of the practice drawing. I have spent a lot of time focusing on perfecting my practice piece instead of getting a start on my final drawing.
I would suggest him or her to mark the orthogonal from the vanishing point to the angle of each shape in the drawing because it really help you keep level and the right elevation for each object.The source that really helped me was the slides that you made to show us step-by-step how to draw the room.
a) I learned how to make drawing look the way I wanted them to be. I now can take a image and pretty much draw it in a way that'll make you think that you see exactly what I do. It's a cool skill to know because it messes with the person's mind.
b) Learning this skill really helped me because my drawings look more realistic. I have a skill that makes the viewers believe that what I'm drawing is really in front of them.
c) If I did this assignment again, I'd spend more time on it to really make sure that I captured everything in my drawing. If I could get more detailed, it would be a excellent drawing.
d) My advice to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective is to just try. I thought that I couldn't do this kind of drawing but I did pretty well. As long as you try, you will do just fine.
e) Something that really helped me was my classmates. They were there to keep me on the right track, and helped me when I needed assistance.
Throughout the process of learning how to draw in one-point perspective, I have learned many things, however to me, the most important of the skills that I have learned has been the skill of looking at an object as though I have never seen it before. In one-point perspective, it is key that all of the lines are either orthogonal, completely horizontal, or completely vertical. To accomplish this, one must look at the object as though it were a foreign landscape, and learning how to train my artist's eye to do this was crucial to my success in finishing my drawing.
After some practice in this skill, I was able to more easily and efficiently complete my drawings, because I no longer had to erase and redraw multiple times in order to fit what my mind was picturing, rather than the object in front of me. For a previous assignment in particular, in which we were tasked to draw a shoe, this made the process much more enjoyable for me, as I liked the challenge of having to map out this "new" object.
If I were to re-do this assignment, the one thing that I would change would be my use of in-class work periods. I spent the large majority of my time finishing homework for other classes, or just goofing off, and that could have helped me maximize my in-class resources (such as the wall itself!). However, I do tend to work better on my own time, and I was able to complete the project with minimal issues at my home.
My advice to anyone who is beginning a one-point perspective drawing or class with no previous knowledge is to practice, over and over, how to look at an object as though it was foreign, and then break it down into orthogonal, horizontal, and vertical lines. This skill, in my opinion, is the most important one when drawing in one point perspective, and greatly sped up the process, while at the same time adding a fun challenge. It makes one-point perspective much more enjoyable, and is vital to your success.
For this project, Ms. Hull's one-point perspective slide deck with detailed instructions about how to draw the wall of the art room facing Arch Street was the most helpful resource. Its explanations taught me how to do the windows and doors, which proved useful when I was at home completing the project. As she was not here, the slide deck served as my teacher, and I recommend it to anyone who attempts to draw anything in one-point perspective, as it provides useful tips.
b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better? I get to put the things I learned in class into the project.
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently? I would chose a different wall.
d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before? Make sure you know the basics of drawing , then try it out yourself and see how it works.
e. What resource helped you the most and why? The resource that I used that helped me the most is the one on the canvas art page. I liked this resource because it was really helpful because it gives me step by step instruction.
If I did this assignment again I would manage my time better than I did before. I thought I had all the time in the world to finish my drawing but then I found out I had nerve damage in my hand. The brace I am wearing makes it difficult to write and hold a pencil so I was scrambling to get it done. My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before is to, as my art teacher says it, "Use your artist's eye." This basically means to look at your picture and see if everything looks real and proportionate. You need to just guess where some lines go and look good, and if you don't use your artist's eye your picture won't look good at all.
The resource that helped me the most was definitely the slide deck we were told to look at. It gave a clear and concise tutorial of how to draw a one point perspective. Another resource that helped me was my friends. It was great to have different opinions of my work and to hear and see what I was doing right and wrong. Both of these resources really helped me to finish my drawing and make it look realistic.
What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
I learned many things throughout this project. However, the most helpful was learning the types of lines, which were horizontal, vertical and orthogonal.
How did leaning this thing (types of lines) make your drawings better?
Learning about the different types of lines made my drawing better because to complete the project we had to draw each type of line many times. Knowing and understanding what they were and how to draw them truly made it easier to draw and made my final product look neat and clean.
If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
If I did this assignment again, I’d be more efficient during my class work periods so I’d have less work to do later on. Also next time instead of folding my drawing, I would find a better way to store it. Due to the folding, I had to deal with a lot of crease marks which interfered with my drawing. In addition to those, I’d also try to be more patient with my drawing! Yes, sometimes it was stressful, but the more patient you are the better your final product will look!
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 is to always keep an eye on the vanishing point! Without the vanishing point, your drawing may look really weird and your lines may be off. The vanishing point is a key tool in drawing an one point perspective drawing since all your lines end up going back to it.
What resource helped you the most and why?The slideshow was the resource that helped me the most because the instructions were very descriptive and the pictures were easy to see! They helped me to complete my project step by step.
While working on this project, I’ve learned that keeping a one point perspective while drawing is difficult and very important. While I was drawing this, I constantly messed up because the perspective of the drawing varied each time I added a new object to the picture. Some orthagonal lines were not connected to the center and some horizontal lines were at a slope. In order for the picture to look right, each object had to have correct, straight lines and each object had to have correct visual representations because everything was in a different place in relation to the center point. By learning this, it made my drawing to turn out better. If each object had lines that weren't straight, the drawing would look crooked and as if multiple people were looking at it from multiple angles. This would defeat the purpose of the drawing being from a one point perspective.
If I had to redo this assignment, I would definitely focus more on how it looked. Some objects weren’t drawn to scale, now that I look at it, and I think I spent too much time on things of a lesser importance. I wouldn’t focus so much on the details as I had tried to do this time because I feel as though the perspective should be most important. After I get the perspective right, the details would just fall into place. If I had to give advice to someone who hadn't done this project before, I would say that they should use their eyes to most determine the way the drawing should look. Your eyes are the best way of making the drawing look the proper perspective and the best in relation to how the room actually looks.
The resources that helped me the most are my eyes and the ruler. My eyes helped me because I had to determine how the room looked, how to represent it on paper properly, and how to make sure that the perspective was mostly correct. The ruler helped me take what I was looking at and draw it. It helped me make straight lines, proper scales and neat objects.
One thing that I have learned through this project is that vertical, horizontal and orthogonal lines shape a precise drawing. If one other the three lines was not precise the rest of the drawing would be off too. Learning the importance of precision made me spend more time and put in more effort in the drawing. I was constantly erasing, making sure the alignment and proximity of the drawings was the best of my ability.
If I could do this assignment once more I would definitely begin the process of drawing earlier than I did. I would also spare some of my time apart from class to work on the drawing. Additionally, I would take photos of the room that we were drawing to make sure I had as much detail as possible. My number one piece of advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to follow directions. The lines that you draw have to be straight and placed in the appropriate place because each line is essential in creating different parts of the drawing. The resource that helped me the most was the slide show posted on Canvas. They included step-by-step instructions to creating the one point perspective drawing. At the end I was able to see a completed figure drawn and try to duplicate it by simply drawing what I see.
b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?:
This technique, as I said, will make all 3D object I draw realistic and easier to do.
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I would try to pick a wall that I was allowed to do the first time.
d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
Do the wall in the guild because it is a difficult concept and it will make it easier if you can see a correct example of what you are attempting.
e. What resource helped you the most and why?
Other classmates because they were accessible and they could show it while they talked about it and that was extremely helpful.
One thing that I have learned specifically that I did not know before is how to try one point perspective. Before taking this art class I could never draw a one point perspective for my life, but after learning the steps and tips for drawing one point perspective it enriched my abilities to draw. So now it comes easily to me to draw one point perceptive drawings. This made my drawing better because it tested me and it brought out skills that I would of never found if it was not for this lesson. Also it helped me make my drawings more clear? For example before I would just free hand my drawing and would not use my artist eye to see if it was realistic. But now it comes a custom to me to make sure to proof-edit my work and make sure that my lines are correct. If I were to do this assignment again I would use my time wisely and finish the main components of the room first then add the details in. My advice for someone who has never drawled a one point perceptive is to use a ruler at all times! If not it would mess up the whole room and also use your artistic eye. Artist or not everyone has an artistic eye. Also make sure you use your Horizontal line and vanishing point, this is the main structure for the drawing. Resources that had helped me the most was the ruler because the lines are the one that brought the drawing to life and made everything realistic.
a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
I learned that it is not that easy to draw the depth in the windows and doors. At first, I thought drawing it would be easy and something to do in seconds but I learned that it all depends on where that window or door is. The lines must match the side of the point. If you have two doors or windows on opposite sides of their point, then the lines of depth won't easily match the doors.
b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?
This made the drawing look better overall because when you look at the whole picture, it looks similar to how it actually looks. When you compare the real wall to the drawing, you can see how it almost looks the same compared to how different it looks without the lines of depth in the windows and doors.
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I would change the measurements for the rectangle as the front wall. When I made the wall, I focused on the rectangle being like the part of the folds on the paper. I was not really focused on a measurement that would make each of the details easier to measure.
d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
I would advise people to make sure that they make mistakes because you won't learn anything on how to draw if you have everything perfectly drawn.
e. What resource helped you the most and why?The resource that helped me the most was the link because it showed you step by step how to draw everything. I also liked the introduction that Ms.Hull gave us in the beginning of the assignment because it helped give a preview of what we would be getting into.
One new thing that I learned was that when you draw something like a window or any object, you have to make the part going farther back smaller or at a slight angle because things that are farther away, are smaller. This made my drawings better because they looked more realistic. If everything was the same size it wouldn't be or look visually correct.
If I did this assignment again I think one thing I would do differently is give myself more time outside of class to work on this project so that at the end of the project and during the class periods I wasn't as stressed. It would also help me from rushing through the project.
My advice for someone who has never done a one point perspective drawing is to always have an eraser and a ruler on hand, because they will be used a lot. I would also just tell them to not get
stressed out when they mess up because you can just erase it and do it again.
One of the most helpful resources for me was the slide deck that Ms.Hull made and my eraser. Sometimes it was hard to figure out what to do next so the slide deck was a big help. There was so many times that I messed up because the lines weren't straight or they weren't the same distance apart, so my eraser was extremely useful.
1. I learned one to draw a stool, and I did not know how to do that before. But I I saw one way to do it, and it will be helpful for if I draw another room or table.
2. I dont draw that much, but learning this while doing it helped me improve my project as I did it. But I will be able to draw more 3d objects than I used to. I am far from perfect at this, but it will be an improvement.
3. I would work on the tables and stools first, because they still look far from what I would have liked them to look like. Then, I would move onto the sinks and cabinets. I would also make sure I completely understand how to use the vanishing point before Ms. Hull left.
4. I would tell them to just do your best. I would tell them to look at how-to-draws for certain objects, but not to be afraid to make mistakes.
5. I think the internet may have helped me the most since it had the how-to guide, and you could look up how to draw certain things. But it might have been Ms. Hull, because she gave me advise, and told me when and where I was wrong during the drawing process
