Final Perspective Drawing

photo (2)

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.

Q3 Art - Nia

This quarter, we continued our artistic journeys through the lessons on drawspace. Here are my favorite drawings of them. Most included using skills of shading, crosshatching, and starting off from shapes to get more realistic drawings in the end. Please enjoy. 
*note: I'm not sure why, but the media uploader insisted that nearly all my drawings were incorrectly oriented; I apologize for this in advance.

Final Perspective Drawing

Before we were assigned this project, I did not understand orthogonal lines. How do I draw them? Why are they so special? Who are they working for? Now that I can draw an orthogonal with ease, my life has drastically improved. I have millions of friends who are dying to know my secret! I can speak 450 different languages! I accidentally became the CEO of multiple Fortune 500 companies! But most importantly, I can harness my knowledge to artfully create a stylish one point perspective drawing of a room that is sure to impress. If I were silly enough to decide that this drawing wasn't perfect (Imagine that!), I would make it a point to tactfully craft a set of photographs as wonderful as my drawing. Now let's say my buddy Barack calls and finally decides to do something that will truly inspire hope and change. Of course, Barack needs to make a one point perspective drawing of that little white house he lives in! Unfortunately, Barack has never done this before, which is why he called an expert like myself. I'd say, "Hey Barack, it's easy to make a one point perspective drawing. Just remember to always use a straightedge, and measure everything you feel is necessary." Barack would be able to easily fashion a glorious drawing of his house using my advice. Now, allow me to thank my resources that got me to this wonderful position as Barack is calling for the third time today. Something about some Ukrainians? Whatever. Anyway, I was really helped by the slide deck created by one Marcie Hull about creating a one point perspective drawing. Goodbye friends, I need to take this call and I can't take a call, write a paragraph, and own Jay-Z at Pong at the same time.

Q3 ART N-U

This quarter I felt has been the best for me thus far (despite senioritis kicking in) I felt really content when drawing. It really makes a difference when you have your own personal space to do whatever you like to get you into that focus and really put the effort and drive into your art.

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 of was the vanishing point. It helped me alot with my project. It helped with the angle and showing the perspective idea.

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

   Learning this helped me a lot actually. It helped by teaching me a lesson on neatness, and effort, and putting time into my work.

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

There are a couple things I would do differently. First thing I would do is get a better picture of the wall, so I know what to include in my drawing. What I would also do is draw lighter, so if I make a mistake the pencil marks won't still be on the paper.

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

Look for tips on drawing a one perspective drawings, and take your time drawing it. If you want it to be neat, take your time.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resources that helped me the most were the websites from the past drawings, and the pictures I got from my friends.

What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
That if your lines are not straight it could mess up your whole drawling.

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

It made my drawling better because I actually used a ruler to straighten my lines.

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

I would make straight lines and try not to make smudges on the paper.

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

Take your time and use your artist eyes not your own eyes.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The links given about perpective drawling.

Final Perspective Drawing


The thing that I have learned that I did not know before was the vanishing point. I was shocked to figure out that all lines trace back to the vanishing point .


Learning about the vanishing point made my drawing better by actually making my picture look realistic and stand off the page.


I would treat my materials differently If I could do this differently. I was unorganized and sloppy which lead to my stuff being wrinkled which hindered me from being able to draw. 


My advice to someone that has never drawn in one point is to make sure your lines lead back to the vanishing points perspective. 


The resource that helped me the most was the resource that you gave me which was really helpful because I got the base of the project done.

Quarter 3 Art-Lisa

This quarter I continued to practice shading but I also learned new skills about drawing animals and cartoon characters. One of the things that I enjoyed this quarter was learning about how to draw some portions of people such as lips and ears. Some of the drawings this quarter had to use different colors and so I had some practice with colorful drawings.

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

That one point perspective is a little difficult. That if one of you orthogonal lines is of your picture could be ruined, so everything has to be precisely right. 

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

It has shown me to be careful about the way I'm lining up my lines. Also to double check where they are.

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

I would change the way I did my windows and my door.

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

Check your lines, use a little shading. Like what you draw make sure your dot is exactly in the middle of the picture because if it's not then your orthogonal lines will be wrong.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

I think the teacher helped me best. Also the website helped me and showed me very slow how everything should be. Also the fact that I could go back and double check what I did.

Final Prespective Drawing

IMG_20140418_212019
​I learned the process of one point perspective and various art terms such as orthogonal. The process of one point perspective can be applied to an artwork of something geometric. The tactic of perspective can be used to show more than one perspective, such as Picasso's later works. If I could do this again, I would put more time in effort into the artwork, I would have if not for The Elder Scrolls Online which took a large portion of out of school time. The advice I can give is to buy a large ruler and have really sharp pencils. The Wikipedia page helped me out the most as well as this website. These help me learn one point perspective and its terminology, I would recommend it to people trying to learn the skill of one point perspective.
