First Years, Fourth Project - Drawing with Understanding

Here's the project that immediately followed animation, two weeks devoted to drawing.

We believe that all our students should be confident image makers. That could be illustrators producing convincing, complex artwork or graphic designers producing a quick, plausable sketch for a sheet of packaging visuals.

Underpinning any ability to draw has to be a thorough understanding of what the artist/designer is actually seeing.

Perspective, in particular, helps explain what we see in that wonderfully complicated three dimensional world that surrounds us...

Here's a quick overview of some of the work produced by both Illustration and Graphic Design Students...

In the timber yard (some lovely 2X2 and 4X2 and 6X2 and...) 

Here's a K6 (Designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott).
That's a red phone (or fern if you're from Hull) box to you and me.

A city scene in two-point perspective.

Just checking perspective works in the real world (and yes, it does).

Elipses, elipses.

Most everything can be better understood (and drawn) when you have a knowledge of perspective.

A towering bookcase (thanks to three-point perspective).

A dramatic, low viewpoint in one-point.

A lovely 'Hansel and Gretel' chalet.

Rubik's cubes give a wonderful excuse for multi-vanishing point perspective.

Finally, here are some pieces from illustration students. They were asked to create a scene that not only used perspective but that also used light to create mood and atmosphere.
