Figure drawing from today, and I’m actually happy with this! I feel like I’m understanding value a lot more lately, just gotta keep studying (´･ω･`)
Hopefully I’ll get some time to pone soon, between school studying and draw studying I’ve got very little free time.
You can accurately predict foreshortening in the x,y coordinate plane (how you perceive it) with polar coordinates (angular rotation in θ and Φ): x=cos(θ)cos(Φ) and y=sin(Φ), if you set the radius as 1. It also follows the superposition principle for vectors.
This is great because we handle foreshortening from when an object is rotated, but we must draw it on a 2D surface. Superposition principle is also useful because when you actually think about an objects length, it will help you lay it in 3D space without breaking anything (like when something looks like its in front but its relatively positioned so that they’d be clipping in reality).I think I’m going to try and see how perspective and distance plays into it mathematically as well, because I think it really helps quantify what we’re learning and makes it a science, versus just guessing until we get something kinda close to what’s right.
If this was practiced a lot, and some key angles/distances were internalized — so that we could fill the in-betweens reasonably — I bet it would really improve the feeling of spacial awareness and accuracy in a piece. It’s definitely a hard way, but I bet with a solid study regime it could be internalized fairly quickly. It’s just tedious and boring at the start.
I should start typesetting my math homework in LaTeX. That’d be cool.
Drew blue fast in the forest.
How do draw
Happy valentines day everyone. Remember to give your waifu some love and don’t lose your way.
Drew myself drawing with a mouse. That’s how I started drawing, and the wrist pain brought back memories.
I spent 7 hours on extra credit that’s only worth 3 points and submitted it 1 minute late. goddamn ass buttholes, fuck you canvas and you’re slightly different clock time.
I don’t paint enough.
