    Perspective question

    Does this appear to be the correct perspective? I'm not sure if I got this cube and its shadowing right, but could someone offer some input whether I did or not? If not, what would you suggest needed altering?

    Thanks

    The edges of the shadow need to get blurrier the further away from the base of the cube. If you go out and look at shadows on a sunny day, you'll notice shadows start sharp, and get blurrier further from their origin.

    The dark graphic lines on the cube need to go if you're going for a more realistic look. The sharp difference in tones should define the edges instead.

    Perspectively...I'm still learning so I'm not sure. One of the lines doesn't even intersect the 2nd vanishing point.

    Yeah I wasn't really tryin' on the look of the shading so much as if I had it in the right place, perspectively speaking. But thank you for your insight!

    Anyone else?

    It looks to me like you're randomly throwing down orthogonals without really understanding what you're doing. What you've drawn is a hybrid of two- and three-point perspective schemes, and the shadow plan isn't complete (you haven't dropped the perpendicular from the light source to find the shadow VP). Check out Loomis' perspective sections in Fun with a Pencil and Successful Drawing (do a search for the online versions), or pick up David Chelsea's Perspective! For Comic Book Artists.
