Final Perspective Drawing

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

I learned how to draw realistic-looking ceiling and floor tiles using simple orthogonal lines.  I also learned that using visual judgement, or your "artist's eye", you can make the proportions of a drawing a lot more realistic. 

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

These things helped me to understand how to draw basic parts of a room easily and realistically. 

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

I would spend a little more time on my drawing, maybe at lunch or at home, since I missed a class period. 

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

My advice is to never erase any lines you're not sure if you might need later, never erase orthogonals until you're completely done with that specific part of the room, pay attention to and use your artist's eye, and be especially careful when doing very long lines that require multiple rulers or span large lengths to keep them straight the whole time. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resource which helped me the most in the beginning was definitely Ms. Hull's powerpoint, but as things got harder, Ms. Hull herself was my best resource!  She helped me with anything that confused me, and was very patient with me the whole time.  I also had a bit of an advantage because we did a little perspective drawing in 7th grade.
