• Graphite Pencils (Full Range) • Full Sheet Drawing Paper
• Eraser • Ruler
• Styrofoam Cube, Boxes, Cylinders, and Table
GENERAL GOAL: Create a drawing in correct perspective and capture the illusion of all the objects (in correct perspective) sitting on a table. Understand and locate the correct perspective in a thumbnail drawing to help create this illusion.
• Identify your eye level, leading edge, and converging angles in a small thumbnail before you begin to draw your final drawing. (This will help your accuracy when making your larger drawing)
• Observe the boxes thinking of the negative shapes first and ask –how will you compose this subject? (This is your choice –you don’t have to include every item on the table however you must include an object in one-point perspective and an object in two-point perspective) MOVE AROUND IF YOU HAVE TO.
• Start your drawing thinking in terms of general to specific, first using 2H graphite (light lines) and work towards 3B graphite (darker “more confident” lines).
• Once you have established your scale, solidifying the composition on your paper, use your thumbnail drawing as a reference while observing the still life objects.
• By the end of your drawing process you should have represented at least one object in one-point perspective and an object in two-point perspective and the illusion of these objects sitting on the table –YOU MUST INCLUDE THE TABLE.
GENERAL QUESTIONS FOR GRADING:
• Were the basic instructions understood and followed?
• Does the work fail to meet, meet or exceed the basic requirements of the assignment?
• Were the proper materials used?
• Create the illusion of space (in accurate perspective) and illusion of form (cubes, boxes cylinders, on a table).
• Use a range of values showing your progression of lighter lines to darker more confident lines (as definer of edges and complexity).
• Accuracy (scale, position, continuity of edge).
• Composition (balance in scale of shapes)(originality).
DUE DATE: THURSDAY, SEPT. 22nd AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS.
