First i would like to say that i have a headache! *rubs temples* Anybody tries to tell me ever again that you can't exercise your brain, i'll tell them "why don't you go and learn about drawing a car in three point perspective and then we'll talk. I'll bring the camomille tea and the paracetemol!"
*L*Anyway, i have a question about perspective. However, i tried to be considerate and searched this particular forum (i simply don't have the time to search the whole board, i am sorry if that is taking the easy way out) to see if i could find any threads that answered my question. I did not, so i am posting this. Considering that i noticed i am not the only one with questions about perspective, i tried to give it a title so that we can possibly make this the thread that every posts questions and answers about perspective. Who knows, maybe if it is informative enough the moderators might make it into one of thos 'sticky posts'. *S*
I have had for quite a while something that is called a 'PERSPECTIVE PACK' from the DK ART SCHOOL (the publishers i think), with a book inside by RAY SMITH and a few tools which i have always thought were really cool. (i'll take this oportunity to say that i have no intention of making the book available over the net, nor even slightly making any copyright infringement, i just don't know how else to get help from you guys without posting the relevant pages, 4 out of a total of 72).
I have been reading it to try and get my assignment done. the pages i was trying to undestand were these two (i have no idea if they are going to take long to load, please let me know if they do)
I just cannot understand how the floor plan relates to the in-perspective drawing above it. In any of the images. The first image in the first page is especially maddening because i can see some construction lines that alude to how it was done but i just can't figure it out. The one thing that keeps flooring me is the fact that the grid line that represents the house's floors plan is not in-perspective. The lines are completely parallel; it is a square.
And in the rest of the images the floor plan does not seem to relate accurately to the above in-perspective drawing, there always seems to be a corner that is longer than it looks like it should be (to my brain at least). And again there are some construction lines just teasing me.
So at the moment until somebody thinks they can explain it to me i am looking at these two pages to see if i can draw the mansion that i came up with for my assignment.
Thanks for looking.
