    talking about perspective (eclipse possted a link)

    I've been wondering about something, and I cannot find the answer in any of the tutorials on perspective. they all just pass by the problem as if it isnt there. so maybe im missing something obvious. so please if any1 knows clear this up for me...
    -when you construct a figure, you usually do this by using cubes in space.
    -to figure how big the cubes need to be relative to eachother- the sides effected by forshortening to a fanishingpoint, you can use diagonals to calculate all the squares but your starting square.
    so how do you get your starting square? I usually just eyeball, but I've been noticing I tend to eyeball wrong. so the question:
    -if you have one lenght of the cube, and you know the fanishing point, can one calculate the other side of that cube- the length of the line running to the fanishing point?

    In a way, all placements are correct.

    The starting square depends on how big your field of view is and the distance of the square to the viewpoint. Think of it like a photo - if you zoom in to something far away, the distant object is fairly flat.

    A quick way to check the "natural" perspective from your intended viewpoint is to move your head to that location and close one eye. This will remove parallax depth cues and force your mind to see based on perspective alone. If you have your initial perspective lines in place, you should be able to visualize what distance looks natural.

    untier, I understand your sorrow! I even forgot to put stuff here!

    Nice optional, the eyes aren't on the same level vertically though.

    I'm so tired. I was quite inactive this week too but I surely have some messy stuff to show. I'm... sorry?

    I'm really sorry. This week I'll bring nicer stuff, I promise.

    No optional. It's tragic because it's really something that suits me perfectly, I love to redesign characters. I didn't do it lately, unfortunately.

    well, I had quite the big mouth saying id redesign zoro.
    actually, it was a bit intimidating of a task which is why I kept postponing.
    in the end, I took the after-timeskip version and did how I'd have liked to see him. so, I think I did ok in the end.
