I am participating in an on-line art class on www.wetcanvas.com. It’s under the Drawing and Sketching forum and it’s called The Classroom. We’ve been studying perspective and vanishing points. Very interesting and also challenging. Here was part of Class 3, Drawing Cubic Objects. There was a photo provided of a couple of dice. Here’s my rendition of them:
Of course, it took me a while to get there. I first drew a rough sketch on a piece of paper taped to a large piece of cardboard. Like this:
This allowed me to draw the perspective lines out to the vanishing points and get the perspective and proportions correct. Then I transferred it via transfer paper and finished the shading. It was really challenging but I was really pleased with how it turned out. Hope my on-line teacher approves!
