 05 May 2011 halfPintMike Timshel   portfolio Timothy Augustine Chennai, India Doubt regarding perspective Hello there, I learning to do the "flat diagram" from the Andrew Loomis' Figure drawing book when I was stumped while trying to do the following. I've no problem drawing the box from 'A' to '4'. That is, the section lying flat on the ground. But trying to getting the propotions for the vertical sections stumps me. For instance how should I get the height for each of the vertical subdivisions? Measurement-wise, they are the same even on the horizontal but how do I draw it in perspective. This leads me to another query: What if the vertical section is slanting? Once again I'm at a loss. I hope I'm clear in what I'm asking. I found the doubt hard to express with words. And I also hope this is the right forum to ask. Thanks in advance, Timothy. __________________ O thou sculptor, painter, poet!

Also, have you gone through "Successful Drawing" (also by Loomis)? He explains in his books how to create proper proportions in perspective, and I think the best thing for you to do is to first go through his books once, so you have an overview of what the contents are exactly, then you'll know where to find the answers you need. share quote
 05 May 2011 halfPintMike Timshel   portfolio Timothy Augustine Chennai, India Thanks a lot for the reply, Lunatique! I couldn't reply earlier. Well yes, I've been through all his books before. But not close enough I suppose. I looked into successful drawing and I did find lots of pages on perspective. Will look into them now. T. __________________ O thou sculptor, painter, poet!
