    Perspective Question

    Hey guys, I'm working on a little transformer for Industrial Design of the Week. He transforms into a circular saw (hopefully that's evident!). Anyway, my perspective is kind of all over the place. I've fixed some of the most glaring problems, but I'm getting confused with all these boxes and curves flying in every direction. Does anyone see any perspective problems here? I don't want to hide them behind a cartooned style. If any other crits seem appropriate here, please have at it! Thanks!

    EDIT: Worked it over a little more, I've posted the new version alongside the old

    I'm no perspective-master, but visually most of it is working. The only thing that isn't is (arguably) the most important part: the saw. Your ellipses aren't quite right.

    Keep at it!

    The left heel isn't lined up with the left toe. The relationship between the top and bottom of the hip is skewed the wrong way. The prongs of the plug fan out too much, and there doesn't seem to be enough room on the back of the plug head for the wire to be centered.

    Noah Bradley - ha, I'm no perspective master either, that's why I'm here! You're right about the saw, that's been giving me all kinds of trouble. I think constructing it inside a square is going to be the solution. Thanks!

    Hexokinase - Perfect! I'll jam on those areas a little bit, thanks for pointing them out!

    One thing that I think is a bit out is the leg nearest us, but it'd depend on whether or not he's got a ball joint type hip or not, because right now it is not pointing directly in front of him but at a slight angle towards us. Also, the knees seem kind of wonky. The horizontal lineson the knee-end of the femurs should be horizontal with the top part of the shin lines. The far leg is more out than the near leg. Hope that helps!

    The only thing I see is the knee design, both of them are different. Besides that I don't see anything blatantly obvious. Don't overwork it too much, as we tend to do that in the epic quest to get everything right.

    and when I do achieve that goal...I'll conquer the moon too
