## drawing inside the cube! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Merry christmas everybody!

My personal hero in art, drawing, (kim jung gi) said in an interview to draw everything inside a box or cube.
So i can draw boxes and cubes in every perspective, thats not the problem.

BUT...drawing an object inside a box or cube that doesn't seem to work/i have really big problems with that.
It looks for me that i loose my sense for depth or something like that!.... Weird? I know...

How can I overcome this problem?
can there be something wrong with my eyes? (feeling for depth)

thanks

I was just thinking of something..
I can draw/sketching - I'm a beginner but i can.
maybe it has something to do with giving volume to objects. Giving objects volume in the right perspective.

So let us say that I can sketch...example, a lamp, but putting the lamp into the right perspective, is harder,
thats where the cubes and the boxes come in and can be great guidelines, but once i wanna draw the lamp in the box, it seem that ik loose the controle??

Oh yeah, I'm not drunk by the holiday season :-)

Perhaps if you post a couple of your drawings within a cube someone here can identify what is creating the difficulty.

4. I think I know what you're talking about, and I don't think there's any problem with your eyes The point of drawing in a cube is to think of things as 3D shapes. It seems like what you're probably doing is drawing objects inside of cubes, but instead of drawing them with the perspective guidelines of the cube in mind, you draw them as you would normally draw them (2D). You can draw anything inside of anything else, but if you don't understand how vanishing points and 3D space works, the object inside will not be in perspective with the cube. Is that kind of what you're talking about? And what kind of things are you trying to draw in perspective? It's possible you could also have issues with scale, depending on what you're trying to draw.
