    Talking Eggs In Perspective - I want to draw them and then i will eat my drawings for fuel

    cadbury eggs should be a normal candy that you can get at any time instead of waiting for easter

    Oh hello.
    Lurker, obviously.

    But now I've got problems, so for some reason I expected you'd want to help. I wouldn't blame you if you didn't.

    Spheres are easy. Cubes too. And once you've got cubes, you can do pyramids, and then you can manage cones, and then even spirals.

    But eggs!


    Eggs In Perspective - I want to draw them and then i will eat my drawings for fuel
    (this)


    I've been mashing my face into bird's nests all day, to study them (the eggs) and all I've learnt so far is that their bottoms are essentially spheres. But how do build off of that in any planned, logical way -- fully aware of the volume involved instead of just "feeling it out" on the paper -- eludes me, utterly.

    What's the
    plan
    scheme
    angle
    method
    procedure
    trick
    secret magical word to utter
    big purple pill i can take
    to make it so I know exactly what the egg is to be, where is round and where is narrow, etcetera, etcetera, and of course... etcetera


    help meeeeeee

    If you find spheres easy you should find eggs easy too. An egg is a sphere that's been stretched a bit at one end. Perhaps if you posted one of your spheres and one of your eggs people could see what was happening, but at the moment I can't understand your problem.

    It's the big blue pill you should take, dude. Not purple. No wonder you can't draw the egg properly!

    i love you
    I love you too!

    LOL

    An egg is two overlapping spheres with a parabolic line around the outside.

    Cool

    so you wanna see my eggs huh well i'll show you my eggs all right


    Eggs In Perspective - I want to draw them and then i will eat my drawings for fuel


    thank you black spot your answer was perfect; by overlaying a simple crosshatch onto a sphere in order to plot the orientation of the second sphere I can accurately point an egg any way that i want to point it. from there drawing a parabolic line is relatively straightforward.

    now i can draw me eating cadbury creme eggs in observably non-easter settings, like for example ramadan and/or anapanasati day

    eggs for strength and muscles like a x man

    goodbye forever
