​a. One thing that I learned is that perspective drawing is easier than it seems. All it is is straight lines and measurements.
b. Learning this made making my drawings easier because it helped me remind myself that doing this is simple and all I had to do to get it right was slow down a little bit.
c.If I did this assignment again, I would probably go into the art room during lunch so I could work on it more and get help on drawing the things I didn't know how to draw.
d. My advice to someone who has not done this assignment is to slow down and look over your work. Rushing to get it done will make your drawing sloppy. If you need to, take a break. Just slow down.
e. The resource that helped me the most was my classmates and Ms. Hull. They helped me when I did not know how to do something.

Final Perspective Drawing

Squaready20140418155137
In my 9th grade art class we drew one point perspective drawings of a wall in our classroom. One thing I learned that I did not know before was that one point perspective drawings are only made up of three types of lines: vertical, horizontal, and orthogonal. A vertical line is one that goes straight up and down, a horizontal line goes directly side to side, and an orthogonal line goes through the vanishing point. The vanishing point of a drawing is the one spot where all of the orthogonal lines come together and essentially disappear. Hence the name vanishing point. Learning this definitely made my drawings better because without it, my paper would look unrealistic and disproportionate.
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.

Final Perspective Drawing

Art Class

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.

for a lot of these I used my tablet, I recently got a new art program called Mischief and used this as an opportunity to practice using it. It has a really different feel than drawing on paper and it got some taking used to with the coloring and all of the options it has. I still have a lot to practice with colors and blending, I'm not quite where I want to be. I practiced anatomy a lot with these, trying to get proportions right while still keeping my more cartoony feel that I like to use with my drawing style.

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.

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

How orthogonal lines help to correctly draw 3D objects. I have drawn 3D objects before but I see much improvement now that I am using orthogonal lines versus trying to just judge it visually.

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.

FINAL PERSPECTIVE DRAWING

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.

Q3 Artwork

This quarter, I spent a lot of my class time working on painting another ceiling tile. This time, Arshelle, Leah and I all worked on painting Olaf from Frozen. This was really fun, and I think he turned out really well. It also taught us a lot about painting, we learned how to paint shadows and create depth on the tile.
This quarter, I also took a trip to England. While I was abroad, I noticed a lot of the pictures I took included things like horizon lines, perspective points, and other things I remember from previous quarter sketches. I've included a few of these pictures at the bottom of my portfolio.

Final Perspective Drawing

IMAG0810_2

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.

Final Perspective Drawing

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.

One thing I learned was how to draw in one perspective. I learned about the vanishing point, the horizon line and orthogonals. Before this class I didn’t know how to draw in one perspective and I just drew freehand. After learning how about one perspective my drawings looked more realistic and proportional. If I were to do this assignment again I would measure some of the lines more precisely so I could make sure they were perfectly horizontal or vertical. I would also add more details, like some of the pictures on the walls and other details. My advice to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective before is to always use a ruler and make sure to measure everything. I would also tell them that you need to make sure you have a good ruler or it will be hard to draw some of the longer lines. The resource that helped me the most was the slide show that Ms. Hull made that had step by step instructions on how to draw a room in one point perspective. The reason it was so helpful was because it was very specific and easy to understand. It also had pictures that were useful for seeing what you were supposed to draw.

Final Perspective Drawing

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 process0417142303a.jpg

Final Perspective Drawing

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

One thing that I learned specifically that I did not know before was the subject of orthagonal lines. I did not know about orthagonal lines or how they could portray a third dimension.


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

Learning about orthagonal lines made my drawings better by helping me with realism. For example, with edges of furniture or windows, I did not know how to make it seem as if they were a real object and not just a drawing. Now I know that you can connect orthagonal lines from the edges of the object to the vanishing point and turn it into a three dimensional drawing! It makes everything more realistic!


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

If I did this assignment again, the thing I would do different would definitely be keep better care of my paper. Though I made sure I didn’t rip it severely or sit on it, or put it in my bag, I rolled it the wrong way multiple times, which put the drawings on the outside which made a lot of dirt marks, and ripped it on the edges, too. Though I cleaned and taped as best as possible, it would’ve been in my best interest to have taken better care of it.


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 would be to understand how simple it is. As long as they are focused and can draw a straight line, they should have no problems making it look great! There are only three lines after all -- horizontal, vertical and orthagonal. It’s really that easy.


e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resource that helped me the most was the step-by-step tutorial on drawing a room, because it was very specific to what I was having trouble with. But more informally, the other best resource at a close second were my classmates, because they knew what I was having trouble with and how to explain and help by being engaging, unlike the website.

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

One thing I learned that i didn't know that well was overall about 3-d drawings.

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

It help me understand about 3d drawings and that mistakes are part of the process

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

If I did this again I probably get a better headstart on the project.

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

Don't forget a ruler

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The ruler because it was your guide because without it you're unable to do this.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
One thing that I learned through this project and in art class was the different forms of perspectives in art that makes a drawing come to life. Such as the vanishing point as well as making sure everything comes off of it to make it look 3-D. Another thing that I did not know about that comes into play with the vanishing point were the othagonal or vertical lines that come out of it.

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

Since I learned about the vanishing point and lines that came out of it to make a one point perspective drawing it made me more aware of how to draw different objects or anything, because before when I would randomly draw there was really no consistency in them. 

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

One thing that I would differently would have to be taking more time to make sure that everything came out of my vanishing point correctly and I would have also made sure that the lines were straight. I would also take more time to make sure my room drawing was more efficient and met and exceeded the expectations more. 

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

One piece of advice that I would give a person who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before is to take your time and make sure everything that is on the drawing comes out of the vanishing point. This is because your vertical lines and everything on the drawing need be consistent in how the drawing would actually look like in real life based on how it is viewed by a person.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

I think the original notes that we took in class as well as getting help from others who knew more about drawing than I did helped me the most. Both of these resources helped me because I'm a visual learner so being about to see notes, pictures, and someone showing me how to draw a specific part of the room was very helpful.

Final perspective drawing

​a. One thing I learned was that everything you draw in some way always goes back to the vanishing point. I noticed that whenever you draw a new shape or object, some point of it has to connect back to the vanishing point. This makes the image more realist and accurate. 
b. Connecting your shapes and drawings back to the vanishing point is essential to the accuracy of your drawing. It you don't do this then the object will not look relevant in comparison to where you drawing from. For example, when you look straight at a table , you will notice it looks fatter in the front and shorter in the back. This is something that the vanishing point will help with. 
c. I would make my windows bigger so everything would be more proportional. My windows are a little small, so it makes my floor look bigger than it actually is. 
d. Draw it like you see it. Don't try and draw something that is there, but you cannot see. For example, it you do not see the top of a table do not draw it. Draw the image as you see.
e. The vanishing point was the most useful tool for me. I have a tendency to draw what I know is there, but I don't actually see from the certain perspective I am looking from. I also tend to make things look different than they actually are from the angle I am drawing from. This makes my image look disproportionate. The vanishing point made sure that I only drew what I saw.
