Final Perspective Drawing

a. One thing that I specifically learned was that all the objects in my final drawing are made up of little rectangles. For each item I had to draw, the base of the item started with drawing little rectangles. Also, in order to make something 3D you add more small rectangles. Before this project I looked more at the lines, than the actual shape I was making, but now I know that it's ALL rectangles. 

b. This learning about the whole concept of starting from rectangles really helped my drawing out. Instead of making random lines, I knew I had to start with a rectangle. This made drawing everything much easier. I could more easily create my objects, and also tell if I was doing something wrong!

c. If I had the chance to do this project over again I would make my back wall bigger. When I look at my drawing as a finished product, the back wall is so tiny, that some things were squeezed in and I could've made it more proportionate if I had had more room!

d. My two major pieces of advise that I would give to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective is to 1) start every object with a rectangle, and then add more rectangles to make it 3D. 2) Measure EVERYTHING. It's crucial to have straight lines in your drawing and if even one thing is off, it can mess everything else up. For every line I had to draw I would measure a distance on one side, and then measure the distance on the opposite sides, and then connect the dots!

e. The resource that helped me the most was Mrs. Hull's drawing guide. It gave you the basics, so that you weren't lost on what to do, but it let you figure out the details which made you really think (and erase a lot). It was super helpful going step by step in the guide, because I could reference the pictures, while making my own!
