1. ## Can you possibly help an amateur out please?

Reading successfully drawing, the perspective side has been pretty much understandable, up until the point of a sphere in perspective, don't know what it is, but i don't understand it or how to do it, if possible, if it's not too much trouble i would greatly appreciate if someone who understands, could show the stages of a sphere being created in perspective please, perhaps if i copy the stages, hopefully it will be alot clearer.

And uh...there are two axes to an ellipse: major, minor.

Good luck, don't hurt your brain.

4. hmm thanks, yes brain hurt alot.

5. A sphere in perspective is simple, because no matter which way you view it from, it's a circle.

If it's the shading of the sphere that's bothering you, then put a ball under a lamp and draw it.

6. Can draw the two intersecting circles within a sphere, but when the axis is tilted so that the intersecting axis are not at the very edges, problem occurs.

The middle always remain static until the side planes are chopped?

7. All those intersecting circles are unnecessary. :-P

8. Why?....

9. I already said why, silly. Use a compas to draw a circle. Shade it. Boom, sphere.

10. At the moment it is primarily for the head.
Been unable to do the method loomis has shown, so created a flat axis of the facial plane divided into 3 parts and guessed the head without a solid axis, want to try avoid using instruments, but have ordered a t-square from amazon for perspective practice.

Is it better to learn how to do this with your eye free hand than building it up inside a cube with a horz line in mind?
