About This Class

Welcome to How To Draw BUILDINGS for KIDS!!

This course is designed to take young and new learners through some of the basics of drawing all while helping them learn to copy, and then create, cool looking buildings of all sorts!! Fair warning though, this is the last course in the series for KIDS and is the most difficult one.

This course can stand on its own, but it is HIGHLY recommended that new learners study How To Draw BASICS for Kids as a prerequisite! You can see it in my course list here on Skillshare!

You'll note that the instructors are a parent/child team, so this course is definitely designed for kids in mind - that includes tempo, material, and language. At over 2 1/2 hours, this course is perfect for new artists of all ages!!! And of course, the banter with this father/daughter team helps to bring the student along in the process - feeling like one of the family.

So join us as we bring these new learners into a new level of enjoyment in their drawing passion.

  • This course is primarily designed for learners from 7-12, but may be enjoyed by all who are interested.

Transcripts

1. Buildings Intro: Hey guys, I'm add in, I'm yelling and I'm the father and the daughter. And this is how to draw buildings for kids. You have no special effect for this. We start off using basic 2D shapes, trying to plot out how we can design very cool buildings and structures so that their functional and that they make sense. Then we move on to linear perspective. It's a little tougher here, understanding how objects look and act as a fade into the distance. We practice it a lot though. You're going to find yourself doing boxes upon boxes, upon boxes until you got it right. But fair warning, this course is an easy, you're going to have to have taken our how to draw basics for kids course or have some good amount of previous knowledge. Once you have it down though, you're going to find, you gain a lot of confidence to create almost any type of object you want, whether it's houses or any other structure. As you go through this course, you're going to be able to do anything you want in perspective with a building. 2. 2D House: Okay guys, we're back and we've got our trained to easy approach to drawing buildings. We're going to talk about how to draw a house in 2D. Joey, do you remember what 2D means? Two-dimensional and flat? Yeah. We're kinda just looking at it as like it's a flat picture right now. Okay? Now I'm going to be drawing with a ruler. So you're going to see a lot of straight lines from me. And Joey is going to be doing it freehand. What does freehand mean? Exactly? Right. Okay, so we've got this house in front of us and I think it looks like Pretty simple enough, you know, a couple sections to it, right? We're going to try to find, see if we can find some simple shapes in it to try to figure out how to draw it, right? And the first shape I think we're looking at here is going to be a rectangle. So what I'm gonna do is draw a rectangle with my ruler here. Now everybody's rulers might be different. I'm using a digital one. You might have one on your, your pencil and paper. You got to slide it around a little bit. No problem. You just do what needs to happen, right? And Joe is going to freehand it. Next one I noticed is there's going to be another rectangle up on this side. So on the left, I'm going to draw another rectangle and you know what, maybe I can make it higher if I want, I can put it up pretty high here, right? There we go. Now what we're gonna do is I'm going to work on this peak, figure out how to do this peak section. Okay? So how do I do this peak? Well, you know what? The peak is going to start? I want it to be centered, centered in the middle of this section of the house, right? And to find a center, I take one corner, draw straight line to the opposite corner, and take this corner, draw a straight line to the opposite corner. And this here, right in the middle here, That's my center. So it Let's do that again just to make sure we all are on the same page. And I'd take one line, draw straight line from one corner to the opposite one. And draw a straight line from the other corner to the opposite one. And this point in the middle here, this is your center. So if you want to just plot it out, you can just set it so that, you know, straight up and straight down, That's your center. And you can even do it across if you want, but we don't really need that for right now. It's okay. Joe, how's that working for you there? And you get oh, you're way ahead of me already. Knowing some of my students don't slow down for you, right? Okay, So then what we can do here is if we want to, we can draw this first section of the roof coming down like this. And if we really want to measure it correctly, we can just draw this straight across here. So where this roof comes down, it matches on this site too. I'm being a little bit more technical than Joe is. Joe, he's doing this freehand. So hers is more of like a sketch, which is great. I'm doing it. Even though I'm doing it in this light blue, this kind of sketchy stage, I'm still doing it a little bit more precisely than Jones, right? Then if I want to, I can go up from there, draw this line down. Trying to keep it equal parts. And draw this line down through here. All right? Okay. So it looks pretty sketchy so far. Minus more precise. Joe is continuing on without me. She's not following my instructions, which makes sense because she's my child and that's what children do. Another thing I can do here is just draw a window And and I'd like to have it so that it's kinda centered there, right? It's kinda the same amount of room on either sides. And then even above, I can use this middle line that I've drawn here and draw a smaller window in here. And you can see how everything ends up being very centered, right? Because I've got all these measurements. I'm not worried if yours isn't perfect, if you're doing it a little sketchy like Joe is. Don't stress about it. Okay. The next thing we want to have this line, this roof coming off this side and it depends how long I want to have it for. Let's see, I'm messing up my ruler here just a little bit. There we go. And if I look at somewhere down from the top here, so maybe somewhere around here, this came way off. And then this overhang. We'll come up somewhere up here. Alright, perfect. So now you can see I've kinda got the, the outline of my little house going on using a lot of rulers. Don't worry if you're not using rulers. Just what I want you to get used to doing is all of these shapes doing the door now. And I'm gonna do this little step below the door. And you're probably wondering, well, why is he doing it in blue? Why does it look so imprecise, right? And I get looks still really sketchy. You'll see in just a minute here, I'm just kinda doing a few sections here. We're gonna do the chimney up top and you're gonna see how like sometimes I'm drawing through sections, There's a bit of an overlap right? Job. Why do you think this is? Why am I doing with this light blue and I've got kinda construction lines everywhere so that it's easier to lie over the top and black, yellow. So that's what I'm gonna do next. I'm going to come and you don't need to do this. But when I'm doing this type of thing, I like to just plot it out really lightly. Okay, so I plotted out really light in a very light color, like blue. Sometimes we use red or something. And then afterwards when it's looking, how I want it to look, I use like pan or something darker. Sometimes just a stronger, stronger pencil or something like that. And I come and do my finishing lines. Okay? And I can come in here and do this window like this. And you can see now how I only do the lines where I want them, right? Like I've already kinda plotted some of this out. I'm going to draw the lines exactly where I want them because these are my finishing lines. I already know where they go because of my little sketch that I've got laid down here. Right? So I'm doing the door now. And it come on over and do this window. And listen if we're going too fast, don't worry about it. Just throw it on pause and say, Wow, Joe, he's really blasting through this. Actually Joe, he's going faster than me on this. So if it was just joy or am I ahead? Yeah. So I'm drawing a whole bunch of lines here just kinda and you can see once I've got that sketch down, everything else gets so much easier I feel right now I can see I kinda measured this one a little bit wrong. So I'm just going to clean it up and go on either side of that line a little bit. And there is my house. Perfect. I love how that looks. Of course, you can do more things if you want, right? Well, Joey still sketching, she's doing a few other things. You could do something like adding rows of bricks in, something like this, you can add and bricks. You can start to decorate your house however you want. Joe, what do you do one on yours. I gave it like a literal like flower pot thing on the window sill. Oh, perfect. Yeah. And then I'm giving some windows decoration. Yeah. Yeah. Right. You can start to put the borders, the trim around the windows and stuff like that. Heck, you can even like start to draw in trees, things behind, behind, or in front of the house and start to really make it more of a picture, right? If you look at mine, mine's very straight, very strict, almost, right? Because I used a ruler. And that's good and bad, that it's kinda precise, almost measured, right? But let's take a look at job's. All that looks fun. Nikki drawn, keep going up. And if we look at her, how she's doing it, the line quality is nice and loose. It has a very cartoony feel to it, right? Almost like it's the background of an animation or something. And that can also be a way you can go to, it's, it's up to you. It's up to you how you want your house to look, what kind of style you want. Right now, we're just focusing on getting comfortable with drawing basic shapes. So listen, if this was too tough for you, then the next units are going to be much tougher when we start to get into perspective and those types of rules. It can get very, very tough. Okay? So be sure that you're comfortable with drawing rectangles, triangles, all these types of things that you're comfortable with trying to draw a straight line, whether it's free hand or with a ruler. And this time, these 2D units is a time to get really good at that. Okay? So don't rush. It is not a race. Take your time and really get used to 2D. All right. Does a job. How's your house? Pretty okay. I added another cell. Yes. Very cute. Okay. Let's see some of your cute houses guys. 3. 2D Buildings: Hey guys, we're back and we've got another unit for you here. This time, we're going to look at 2D buildings joint. Do you know what 2D means? Flat, two-dimensional? Yeah. Right. So that's the difference between kind of a square that's 2D versus what would a 3D square be? A cube, right? Right. So right now we're just kinda working in 2D. This is kinda the basic, simple way of approaching things, okay? I know it might not seem totally basic as we're doing this, but believe me, when you get into harder units and get into perspective, you'll realize that Jesus, 2D was super easy. Okay, So we can see in front of us here we've got a bunch of role of basic buildings and how are we going to draw them? How are we going to design them? I mentioned to you before that sometimes having maybe a colored pencil for sketching, that that's the way to go. And then you could do your actual finishing lines like a darker black or something like that, right? So job, what kinda codes? Pencil do you like to use? Sometimes. I like to either use blue or red. Yeah, that seems to be the standard. Blue or red seems to be the easier one to use, right? So I'm going to use blue as well. And I'm going to be using rulers, using kinda the straight edges and stuff I got. And Joe is going to be doing it freehand. Lucky for you. Yeah, freehand is actually easier, especially when you're just thinking of the concepts. When you're just kinda try to come up with ideas. But at a certain point, you might want to start to break out those rulers, right? Okay, so the first one, we've got a box here. Oh, I already messed up. I'm just drawing a straight line. What I really wanted to do was draw kind of a box. So I'm going to try to copy and draw what we've got up top here, right? Okay, so I've got just a straight box and then I'm going to put a little lip on the top right. What else might have put I can put a door down here, a window maybe at the same height. And then what I can do up here, there's a few ways to do this, and I'll show you both. One way is to just draw the individual windows, kinda try to measure them out and see if it works. Okay, but you can see like sometimes some windows might be bigger than others and that type of thing. All right. So I don't know if I always recommend that one. Another way to do it instead is to draw these straight lines and then come in and divide it up, right? You can. That would be inside for one window. That would be insects or another window. Another window. Oops, there we go. Another window. And another window. You can measure these if you've got a ruler. Let's say you want them each to be one centimeter or something like that, even minor. So measured on the computer, what I can do instead is put something like a grid in here and I can measure them that way. But I feel like when you guys are watching us at home, the grid is really distracting. So I'm going to get rid of that. I don't want the grid showing up on my screen. But then once you've done that, you can come in and you can start to erase, right? So if you, if you want to do it, that technique, what you're gonna do is just erase in between the windows. Joe was free handing it. So let's see. What do you think How was your first building looking on? It looks like a well-behaved I think so too. I feel like you've lost a few windows in the process. I accidentally made it a bit too big. That's okay. Open. Yep. Yeah. And the same with when we're talking about sketching before, we could add more details like you could put a border around the doors or something like that right at a door handle. One of those push ones here, kind of mess that up. There we go, That type of thing, right? Like you're going to add as many details as you want. Down at the bottom here. If you want to put kind of a a line for bricks, that type of stuff, right? You can add, be adding bricks into the mix. Bricks into the mix. I find with bricks having them spaced out like this. So they kind of shift and overlap each other a little bit. Right? Now I know I'm getting away from my original building. It's not the same, but it's a different approach. Rip kick coming up here. We're doing this next one. We're gonna do the same thing. What I wanna do is have, obviously I have a big giant rectangle, right? Something along those lines. Now, if I want to find the center, Let's say I want to have this knob up top here. How did we find the center? Do you remember how we did that before? How we find the center of of a rectangle or square or something. Yeah, God, two diagonal lines and that's right. You make this and I can go from this corner to this corner, this corner to this corner. And this is now my center point. So what I can do is draw straight up from the center point. And that'll kinda help me plot out what's going on up here, right? So then I can come up and I can draw my little square on top here if I want. Seems a little small. I think I did it too small, but it still works. You can do it that away. There's a few different ways to do it. And if I really want to, I can come in here, do another center point and find out where my surplus I can freehand a circle around that if I want that type of thing, right? Or you can use a ruler. If you've got different tools for making circles. Okay, and remember this is all going to be sketching right now. I'm doing it in blue sorts of very light and a rough, right? So I can come in on this side. I'm going to do this this floor that's in there. I'm gonna come in here and do the top of the door. From the door down. I can maybe we need to store extra wide like that. Do the windows. Strolling across for the windows here. And look at how easy That's all plotted in. Now. The other thing I can do is come up here and draw different rows. For the windows. You got to think like these windows. They might need some room on top and bottom of them. The nice windows aren't necessarily from floor to ceiling or something, right? So what would happen next is I would come in and only draw the final lines on this, right? This is going to be a bit of a long video. So I don't know if I'm going to finish all of these for us here. But I know you guys at home. You'll be able to do that. No problem. All right. So once I start going through the finishing lines, I can come in a little bit closer, draw something like this on the end, and even come in and erase a little bit. There we go. So you using these construction lines. And this is really important, get used to drawing construction lines. Lines that are really just there temporarily. You can do with a different color as we've got here. Or you can just learn to sketch lightly. This is something that I've seen with a lot of new, new students, is that they don't know how to just lightly sketch, to just lay down some line that is not going to be there forever. Okay? So that's one way of doing this. And then like I said, I've plotted in the windows here. I can come along. Do all the windows. There's a trick digitally and everybody, you know, depending on how you're working, there's different ways to do it, right? So what I can do digitally is kinda select in these areas and then draw my lines all the way through and you'll see how they kinda skip. I don't want them to be. Right. But I realized that not everybody is working on a tablet. Joey and I are working on tablets right now, but honestly, we work tons on traditional stuff as well. So you don't need a tablet. I know that I've listed out a bunch of cool tools that you can have to start off with, but you don't need them. Okay, jump out of all your drawing. How often do you use a tablet compared to traditional? I enjoy sketching in traditional but easily for final pieces that I post on my Instagram, they're usually digital. Yep, yep. I think that's kinda the same with me actually. Just to have this nice finished piece. There's something about digital work that just makes it a little bit easier for me, right? Okay, the next one, building number three, is really going to be simple. We're going to have this tall rectangle. And then these long lines for Windows. Now, I didn't measure the middle one here, so you can see it's slightly off. But you can definitely do that if you wanted to. And then at around the same door height, that's where the door would be. Write once again, the light sketch. Now if you want to, when you can do is come up top and sketch in some type of air conditioning or water cooler, like some boxes and stuff. I go on the top of this, right? And that starts to, we call it set dressing actually. And that starts to add to the look of everything. Remember how we did flower pots and all that for the houses? Well, these buildings can have that kind of stuff too, right? Okay. Nice and simple building. Next one we're going on to is going to be very similar. So we can have this big kinda rectangle going on here. But there's some differences with this one. It's got a curved roof here. So maybe I'm going to do something like I will add this block up here and then add another block there. But when I come in to do the finishing lines, I'm going to curve it. So I'm going to maybe go something like this. I can curve that. Now sometimes you might have some type of ruler to be able to do this like a nice curved rule. Hoola, I'm not everybody has that. So you can also free handed and just have this nice curve here. Alright? Okay. And then of course we would come in, do the straight lines coming out of there. Straight line, straight line, straight line coming up, straight line coming over, straight line coming up, straight line coming over. And that's the way you can do the rooftop for this type of style, right? What else do we have here? We've got these steps and a door. How was that curved roof for you, Joe? Pretty good. Yeah. I'm just highlighting it all. And really this is your choice about how you want to measure things, how much effort you want to put into it, that type of thing. Alright? What I would do for this set of stairs here is maybe put like a little block. And then when I'm drawing it out, How would start to whittle away at it. All right. So here is my my one side. Coming over. And then now I'm going to go straight down, straight over, straight down, straight over, straight down, straight over. And if you've got a ruler on hand, like I said, you can measure these and I would measure them and make sure that they're the same. The rise and the run of the step is approximately the same, right? And then what I can do after this is put a door. Have a door sitting here, have the top of the door frame here. Something along these lines, right. And even put a door knob or something like that. They're right. Once again, more set dressing as you want, right? When you're doing Windows, usually the top of the window kind of aligns with the door on that floor. So what you can do there is kinda use that point. You're going across gradient across that way. And then you can put like a window sill at the bottom here, where people might put pots of plants or something like that there. You can even put a divider in the middle here where people could slide the windows and that type of thing, right? So there's a lot of options when we're doing these buildings. I just wanted to get you used to drawing these in 2D and practice with them for a while. It's up to you how you want to design your windows. Do you want, for example, do you want a window that looks like this and then crosses in the middle, right? Kinda those old traditional ones. Then you can go in here and erase things if you like, that type of thing, right? Those stylistic choices of how you want your buildings and houses to look. Those are up to you. I wanted to practice on these 2D buildings before you got into 3D. Because if you could get some basic shapes, just getting comfortable drawing a cube, drawing rectangles, and then going into them, finding the center points of them. You need to practice these for a while. Finding out where's the center, where's the center of this, whereas the vertical center as well, right? Once you get comfortable doing these, that'll make going into 3D buildings a lot, lot easier. Perspective is tough. It's usually taught somewhere around middle school or high school. So for teenagers. And so that might be a little bit older than some of the students that are studying this. But maybe not. You know, we've got students of all ages. And being a beginner, start with 2D and then move yourself on to 3D. Okay, So Joe sketching and I was like coming pretty good on a senior zoom out for me. Okay. Yeah. I think it looks very like pain to me and I kinda like it. Like even though it's free hand, I think it looks pretty good. Yep. Yeah. I totally agree with you. I think, you know, doing things without a ruler. When I look at mine with the ruler and stuff, it looks very stiff. And that's okay. You know, if, if that's the type of drawing and background, I'm going to go for doing it freehand like Joe was doing here. Joey's got it nice and loose. It does have that painterly, cartoony type of animated look to them, right? So like I said at the beginning of this course, I laid out some, some materials that you might use, but it's your choice which ones you're comfortable with. So guys, have fun with this. Make sure you're very comfortable with drawing these front on 2D buildings before you move on to the next one. In fact, I left a few buildings blank here. And I want to see what you fill them in with. I want you to design a few and see how it looks for you. You can do the designs that I have above for the examples. Or designer yourself. Do something funky with it. Alright, have fun with guys. And we'll see you in the next unit. 4. Perspective Intro: Hey guys and welcome to your new course. But before we dig too deep into it, I really want to take a quick break and talk to you about something from our basics course. Now listen. This course you've got in front of you here. It's a little bit more advanced. You should have some background in some techniques before you start this course. And some of that would have come about from our how to draw basics course. Hopefully you remember we went over stuff like how to design your name, kind of in 3D and jutting tidal effects, right? We also talked about shapes. You know, how to make them from 2D to 3D. But the thing is, I explain something to you or I was teaching you something without really teaching it to you. Okay. And that doesn't make sense, but it will in a quick second here. What we're going to learn today before we get too deep into drawing. This is something called linear perspective, echo, echo, echo. Okay, this will sound really strange, right? And it's not easy. And that's why I didn't put it in like the basics unit or anything, right? But now if you've done a few courses, you're probably more advanced and I think you're ready to tackle this. So we're gonna talk about linear perspective, how we hinted at it before, but how we're really going to learn it and apply it to being able to draw any type of shape, right? Everything from vehicles to buildings to even people in perspective, right? But we have to understand the fundamentals to linear perspective first. So what is linear perspective? Well, I think you've kind of already notice that when you look at something, you know, a big scene or a big picture or even a movie, that things further away seem smaller than things closer. So let's take a look at this picture here. We've got this This gentleman right here, his top to bottom, right. And he's, he's looking like an average dude amongst the 1930s or whenever. He's an average for back then, right? And he's yea tall, right? You know, this tall. Okay. So but if I look way down here, I've got this dude down here and he is this tall. So that's just, that's tiny if I actually circle that and I'm going to copy it. And then I'm going to bring it on over. You're going to see how different this is. Oh, wow. That's crazy, right? Like look at that. There's no way that this dude is only up to this guy's needs. That's not how that works, right? We know it. We not might not always know what the terms for it, but we understand it, right? And that objects far away, even if they're the same size, objects far away will seem smaller than those closer to us. You know, an apple in front of our face will look different size than an Apple knew and 20 feet away, even though they're the same size apple, right? So this is what artists understood at an early stage, was that the further we went back a smaller things God, you know, they start to get really tiny going backward. But that really wasn't understood for how objects work in this, right? So the easiest way to look at this is train tracks. We can see that we know that train tracks are parallel, right? You know what parallel means? Parallel lines. Parallel means two lines. Or any lines that run side-by-side together, right? These are all parallel. They're running in the same direction. We know train tracks are parallel. These train tracks would be like this if we were kinda looking straight down at them, right? But that's not what's happening here. Here. They are getting narrower, right? We know that they're parallel lines, but as they go off into the distance, they get tighter and tighter and tighter. What's happening? Just like when we were looking over it, this the space between them is getting smaller and smaller and smaller. Okay? So this is what we call linear perspective, that these parallel lines, these lines that are running in the same direction as they fade off into the distance, they're gonna get tighter and tighter and tighter. So we can see that on a train track, we can see him on a ledge. We can even see it in these trees. These trees are kinda, now not all of these trees are going to be the same height. You know, some are taller, some are shorter, some are different types of trees, right? But as they go off into the distance, as everything goes off into the distance here, you can see how it gets smaller and smaller. All right? Okay. So maybe you remember that when we were drawing we were drawing some types of boxes and we were kinda just bringing it back into the distance and we would have the box like that. Okay. This was our quick and easy attempt at linear perspective. I didn't teach you exactly about it and we're going to go more in depth in this course about it. But that's basically it, that things closer to you will be larger. Things smaller away will seem smaller. And that parallel lines will follow each other off into the distance and getting the gap between them getting smaller and smaller and smaller. Now listen. This is not easy stuff, okay? So don't get stressed over it. You know, this is something that they probably start teaching maybe around high school or art class or something. Right. So depending on age, depending on how long you've been learning art for it, this is not easy, right? The one thing I will say is before, you know, I would usually say you didn't need a ruler in my class or anything like that, or you didn't need erasers and stuff. You know what? For this course, I think you might, I think it might be smart to have a ruler, okay. So I'm not gonna say it's mandatory, but yeah, I'm going to say it's really probably a very good idea to have a ruler for this. Okay, so what we're going to, I'm going to show you that on these little Lego blocks here. How if we grab a corner and we match to the next corner, we kinda just drag it off. We can see how these points come together and go off into the distance. They get narrower and narrower and narrower. Right? Now we know that they're parallel. We know that they run together. But they go off into the distance this way, okay? And same with this side here. And it's going to go off my paper here, that's okay. But they're going to go way off into the distance. Okay? So we've got some cool stuff here going on with Lego blocks. We can even, you know, it doesn't matter whether they stack, right? They can just kinda find these edges and start practicing a little bit. All right? We can see how they're narrowing off into the distance here right? Now, if I had a bigger sheet of paper in front of me, we would see how that totally works out. But for now, that one's a little bit off. I'm using my ruler tool here, so it's kinda making a little bit more sense. Let's see, see how everything kind of narrows. It'll catch each other eventually, just like on the train tracks, will eventually catch up to each other, right? There we go. Okay. So these, imagine these lines going off in a distance or almost like those train tracks. Those train tracks are going off into the distance. Okay? As we go into this unit or into this course rather, we're going to talk about different types of linear perspective. We're going to talk about 1.2 perspective. Because by the end of this, what I want you to be able to do is to draw almost any object using perspective so that it looks reasonably realistic, is not going to always be perfect. But boy, you're gonna be able to draw anything from, you know, like I said earlier, structures, buildings, cars. And as we're looking here, even realistic, people in a scene as they are set going off into the distance. Okay guys, I know this is tough. I know it's not gonna be easy for you. And you might even have to rewind this particular little unit here. And that's okay, don't worry, it's going to be harder than it was before, but that's good because from challenge, we get to grow. 5. Perspective 1pt: Hey guys, We're back with a little bit of a refresher course. Somewhat refresher, a somewhat new. In a section just before this I talked about linear perspective, right? Like what it is, why it is those parallel lines going off into the distance and things being smaller as they go or appearing smaller as they are further away right? Today. In this one, we're going to talk a little bit about 1 perspective, okay? And what is one-point perspective? One-point perspective is when the easiest way to explain it is when the flat side of the object is facing you. Okay, so let's see if I can sketch this out a little bit and see if it makes sense to you. You know, if I've got a square, right and it's facing me, okay, like the flat surfaces facing me, write, well, I want to change it into a cube, right? So there's some things that are really important here. One is the horizon line. That's kinda like our eye level line, right? If we are above an object, we're going to see the top of the object. And if, for example, if the object is above our eye level, if we're below that object, we will see underneath it. So I'll show you this a little bit more as we get into it. Okay? The other thing is a vanishing point. That's kind of our focus point of where our eyes that kind of almost right, right in front of us in a way, right? So remember when I said it's okay to use a ruler. It's still is. What we're gonna do is take this cube and we're going to bring all the corners so that's way too small. It will not maybe bump it up to here, bring all the corners back to that vanishing point. Okay? So right now I've got three corners that are going back to that vantage point and that's not all of them. How many corners does o square half for? Right? I'll get to that in a minute. All right. Okay. Right now, what does it look like? It kinda looks like this long, long, long. Not too, but column. Right. That's just kinda laying off into the distance, right? Yeah, well, we want to change that because that's not what we're drawing here, right? We're drawing hopefully a cube. We're going to turn this square. This is a square and we want to treat it into a cube, which is more 3D, right? So how can we do that? Well, we need to kinda cut it off somewhere, right? Somewhere for depth. So I can, if I do a line here and kind of following this one, this is a vertical line, right? So I'm gonna kinda fall this. And then on the other side here, I would do a horizontal line that follows this horizontal line. And of course they're going to, it's going to come from that point, right? And there we go. We've got this cube shape frame. This is a one-point perspective cube. We are, it is below the horizon line. So we're looking down at the top of it. The top of it is right here. All right. If we were to do the same thing for a cube that's above the horizon line. We pull down these, these corners. And then if I want to, I want to make it, here's my vertical line, Here's my horizontal line. And this is following the vertical and horizontal of the square, right? And there we go, the square turns into a cube. Nice. Now, this is where it's going to get a little bit more difficult. And if you're not following me so far, just wait. Why don't we come off to the side here. And we're going to draw another square, okay? And you can use your ruler to do this. I'm just kind of free handing this section right now. We're going to do the same thing that we did before. After we've got this square, we're going to pull 123 corners to the vanishing point. And we've got that same kinda like stretched out column looking thing, right? But that's not what I wanna do here. What I wanna do is actually create a see-through cube. This is really important because we got to understand like how a cube would look like. Imagine if you had like a fish tank or something. So we can call it a see-through cube. We can call it a fish tank, whatever you wanna call it, but that's what we're doing here. So a cube is made up of these vertical lines and these horizontal ones, right? Okay, That's the square. But I want to do that back here, right? So the same kind of thing. I'm going to have this vertical line and I'm going to have this square line. You see how I came from that corner, right? I just kinda chose the depth, how long I want it right? Now this is the same as what we did before, but here's something different. Remember before we did though 123 corners. Well now we're going to pull from this fourth one and see what that kinda starts to look like. We're going to pull that to the vanishing point. Okay? So now we can see we're kinda drawing through the object. And in our basics course we talked about that. Sometimes you have to draw through something like the character or something to see where those other things might be placed. And that's what we're doing with these ones here too. So right now we've kinda got this baseline, but we're gonna do the vertical. And we're gonna do the horizontal. And now look at that. Now you kinda seeing how that could kind of look like that fish tank type of thing, right? And it maybe all let's see if I can Do it up a little bit with a darker line here and stuff and see if this helps. Maybe clean it up just a little bit, right. So I'm kinda coming over. I guess I can move over just a little bit more. Bring this one over. This one back. So it goes down to it. This one goes over to their cups up, comes back and comes over. Okay. So what does that look like? A cube, but it's a transparent cube, right? It's got that kind of a query I'm looking vibe to it or something. This is what you need to be able to do to go on and do these courses. These courses are going to get a little bit complex, okay? So you need to be able to sketch out these one-point perspective cubes, okay, So what do you do it with a ruler or whether you're just kinda, you know, you do it, start to do it free hand. And you're like, oh, bring it down and you start to kinda, you can kinda rough it in a little bit, that type of thing, right? And you should be able to Draw a lot of these cubes. Like I said, I don't care if you really, if you use the ruler, you don't. The rulers, to be honest, it's a little easier and you know, it's easier to kinda use it that way and stuff, right? But it's up to you. It's up to you whether you want to use it or not. I just want you to be able to draw at the drop of a hat to practice enough to be able to draw these types of cubes so that if, if needed, you don't even need anything. You can just be like, yep, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here is my cube. But I'm gonna kinda draw through. And there we go. All right? If you can draw maybe 100 of these, that's pushing it. Maybe, I don't know, even a 50 or something like that. Like just draw them kinda all over your paper like this. And it happened kinda makes sense, right? You know, make sure you get that horizontal, the vertical line, that horizontal line that's matching, that horizontal line, the vertical line, that type of thing. If you can draw these, like what you should do is just go on your page and draw a bunch of these squares everywhere, right? Just draw a bunch of these squares and then try to make them into transparent cubes. Okay, so that's your exercise. And yeah, this is starting to kinda combine what you learned in that first basics course. But you're going to see as we go on in this course, how something like this is going to help you immensely. So whether you're drawing a cube or if you even want to, you can draw kind of a longer one, you know, like make it into a bit of a rectangle there. Okay. You know, that type of stuff. Imagine how that's going to help you in this course. Okay guys, that's it for the one-point perspective. The key points are the horizon line, kinda like eye level, right? If it's below it, if the object is below it, below your eye level, you're going to be seeing the top of that object, right? If you look around your room right now or whatever room you're in, anything that's below your eyes, you're seeing the top of it. All right. Anything that's above your eyes like hanging from the ceiling or anything, you're going to see the bottom of that type of object, right? Okay, so that's the horizon line. Vanishing point is kinda like where your eye focuses. And then comes the practice. I would really, really like it if you guys could, like I said, draw 50 to a 100 of these little cubes, especially the transparent cubes. You don't start with the normal cube at first, and then work on it, and work on it and work on it until you can get that transparent one. Just as a sketch. It doesn't have to be perfect, but just as a sketch. And then, you know, you're ready to go on. Okay guys. So keep practicing. 6. 1 point Aquariums: Hey guys, we're back with another unit here for you. Joey and I are going to be drawing aquariums. We are. We are. Okay. But I think I'm surprising heard it could because I didn't tell her exactly what we're doing here today. Um, this is going to be talking about designing buildings and so on and so on. But I want this to be a little bit as a bit of a practice for how we're going to get into 3D buildings, okay, because sometimes it can be a little difficult to practice perspective. Now hopefully, you've already practice one-point perspective, right? That, that little unit that I gave you. But we're going to practice it again with aquariums just to make sure we're in the same one. And this time, I'm not going to do with any rulers. Joey and I aren't. Okay. So what I just did was I drew a little horizon line across and mine looks all wavy. It looks a little bit. That's sort of a bitter. If you could do, if you could follow along there be really good. We're not going to go very fast on this or anything. I just wanna make sure you got it right. You'll see why I say we're going to draw a query amps, okay? So the first one, what I wanna do is have that horizon line. And then I want you to draw kind of an x or something that has a center to it. Okay, So I might even just put it in red so you can see it a little bit better there. Okay. And what we're gonna do just along below this horizon line, we're going to draw three squares. Okay? No rush. And you can see that I'm not really doing a good job of using a ruler or anything like that. This is just free hand. Hopefully though, you can practice your freehand street line just in some additional exercises, right? Okay. So this is right here. It's called the vanishing point. And what we're gonna do is take some of these corners and drag them to the vanishing point. Because right now, what do we have there? What do these three things called squares? There are squares, but you know what, we want to make them into tubes or some type of three-dimensional object, right? So what we're gonna do is we'll start with the one on the left. And I'm just going to drag this first corner and draw a nice little light line over to the vanishing point. I'm going to draw the next corner. And same kind of thing drawed to the vanishing point. And again, I'm not using a ruler here. I'm not being too technical yet, okay? And I'm going to draw from this corner and bring it over to the vanishing point. Okay? So right now what does this look like? Really elongated rectangle, yeah, like a kind of a rectangular 2-bits thing that goes on forever and ever almost right. Okay, but what we're gonna do is make it see-through. So what I wanna do is this, this last bottom left corner. I'm gonna do the same thing. And I'm going to bring it over to there, over to the vanishing point. Okay? So now kinda looks a bit see-through ish, right? We've got all four corners, 1234, they go to the vanishing point. Okay? So when we're dealing with 1 perspective, we've got our up and down lines, the vertical lines of this square, right? And we've got our horizontal lines across lines type of thing, right? And this is the face of our structure, right? What I wanna do is draw these lines but back a bit. So as if it's, like we said before, some type of square or cube or, or rectangle or something like that, right? So what we're gonna do is follow this, let's say about here, and have another set of corners. You couldn't make it longer if you want or shorter. But for right now we're going to put it right here. So because this drops down into a up and down vertical line, we're going to drop it down the same way. And on this top plane, we're going to follow it straight across. So now if we look, we've got the top and exterior of this cube, right? Joe tells you is, it helps us here. How does yours look? Pretty good? It's a little bit wonky because of how I drew my square in the first place, but I'd be pretty good. Yeah, we're just practicing here. We don't have to have it perfect, okay? Perfection comes when we start to bust out the rulers and all that. And that's not what we're doing here right now. What we're doing is just learning some basic principles, okay? The next thing we're gonna do is because like I said, we're drawing aquariums here. We're actually going to draw through. So the base here, just like this, as horizontal as the base from this corner is going to be horizontal as well as going to come across right across here. Okay. And you can see inside it that's gonna be kinda like the flooring, right? And we're missing one more line are missing from this corner all the way up. And now we have our little aquarium. We can put little fishies in there. He's going to go in there. He's not very happy. That water. Well, that's why that's LaPiere him. But this is what I'm talking about when we're saying we're drawing little queries because we're basically drawing shapes that are see-through transparent shapes. Okay? And the more we practice with this, the better off we're going to be at understanding 1. So this is 1 perspective. Okay, let's do it again with these other two. We're going to take each corner. These are squares, so we're going to have four corners. And we're going to draw straight lines as straight as we can make him back to this vanishing point. Income. So then why don't I define this square a little bit with my up and down vertical lines and my side-by-side horizontal lines, right? And then I'm going to choose how far I want this whole deep, I want this square to be your cubed, this shape, and I don't want it to be very deep. I'm going to make mine kinda narrow. So it's just going to be like this. So that's the top. It's going to be a very narrow fish tank, right? And what does that mean? That this one goes straight down and this one goes straight down, and then it goes across. And then we haven't like this on a model. Now of course, because we are just kind of winging it when we get some kind of a wonky squares a little bit here. You know, they're not perfect. When we do draw the actual square, right? We're going to draw it making, making those fine lines when we start to get into better housing and stuff again. And buildings, we don't want our buildings to fall over. Unless we want them to fall over, right? Unless we're doing a Dr. Seuss type of stock room. But like I said, I just want to be loose with this so that we understand what we're doing. So what are we doing here, Joe, on this last one was the first thing we're diabetic connect the points of the square to the vanishing point, right? So why don't we do that. We'll bring these corners of the square to the vanishing point. If you really need to use a ruler, my lines are getting kinda wonky there. Go ahead. If not, don't worry about it. Like I said, right now, we're just practicing and practicing. I like to do very relaxed and freehand. Okay. How deep do we want this job? Pretty deep. Okay, So we'll go back here. And let's say this is the length one side, the length of r. And whatever this is, right? And then what do we do? We bring this across because when we're drawing this type of shape, It's either up and down side-by-side or it's going to that vanishing point. Okay, so here's my side-by-side, side to side. Here's my up and down. Here's my up and down my side to side. My up and down my side to side. And there we go. We've got our 1 perspective aquariums. Not easy. So what I'd like you to do if, if this is tough, if you're feeling this is really tough so far, try on a new page or even on this page, start drawing squares all over and see how they might go to that vanishing point. And then just keep practicing it. This, this will take a while. This isn't, this is probably one of the more technical parts of drawing that many students avoid. Don't avoid it because if you can master perspective, you'll be much stronger at all types of drawing. Good luck guys, and keep practicing. 7. 1 point Pyramid: Hey guys, we're back in. We've got another lesson for you. Joey, do you know what we're doing in this one? It looks like square. I know, I know. But squares are really the basic foundation for understanding perspective. Being able to draw cubes, right? That 3D bit. These squares that we've got in front of us here are going to help us to draw pyramids. So a little bit more of a complex shapes so far we've been practicing with basic squares and everything, right? But now what I wanna do is work on drawing a pyramid. Okay, so I've got three squares in front of us here in you've probably got it on your worksheet, so you can do it yourself. If you want to just put this on pause and make three squares like jointed. Or you can use the worksheet that I'll provide and you could do it that way, right? And the first thing we're gonna do, like we usually do, is trying to make those see-through a query M cubed take things, right? So how do we do that? Well, what we're gonna do is take each corner and bring it on to that vanishing point. Okay? There we go. It's okay if you take a little bit longer to do that, don't worry, it's not a rush or you just put me on pots. Or joy can yell at me and tell me to slow down. Okay. So now you can see we've got this like see-through rectangle thing going on, right? Well, what's next? We want to kind of flush it out so that it's a cube. All right, so what we can do is we have our, our up and down, our vertical line, or a horizontal line, or horizontal line and our vertical line. And now we have this, our 3D, a querying cube, right? We've done this before, so we know how to do this part, okay? So I'm going to keep some of this in blue just so you can see the construction. And then afterwards we're gonna do have a darker line to make sure it makes sense. Now, what I wanna do is find the center of this base. I don't know if you see it, but basically this is a base here. Let's see if I can kind of fill it in so you guys can see what I'm talking about here. This here would be the base, okay, so I'm going to find the center of that base, and I want to find the center of this talk. How do I do that? Well, all I have to do is go from one corner to the other corner and one corner to the other corner. And that found the center there. Okay. Joint if all along. Okay. Okay. Now I'm going to grab this corner, bring it to this corner, and this corner to bring into this corner. And that found the center there. So now you can see we've got two center points in the middle of this cube, right? And one easy way to kinda draw in between them as you can, just do this and, and there is your center. Okay. So we've got this central line going up and how's that going to help us building a pyramid? Well, you'll get a little confusing, so I'm going to switch colors here. You can grab it from here and bring it down to here. Grab it from here. Bring it to here. Grab it from here into there, and bring it to their, You're bringing it back down to the base. So you know how pyramids got those four corners on the bottom, but then they all intersect at top. That's what we just did. We just did those four corners on the bottom intersecting up top. Okay, let's see if I draw this in black and see if your pyramid makes a little bit more sense. This is going to be the front. What's closest to us, kind of jumped a little bit there with my ruler. This is going to be the side. And then we've got a section back there that we can't see, but we've designed it so we know what's back there. I got a little cleaner. Okay, so that's our pyramid. It's really well-constructed according to this perspective, right? Joey, how does yours look? I think it looks pretty okay. Oh, I can see you're doing it freehand. I am I'm not using real, right? And so if I want to get rid of all this stuff, There's my pyramid, right? I can kinda see if I fill this in just a little bit there and fill in that side just a little bit there. And now you can see that's how we do a pyramid, okay? Okay. So what I want you to do is do this again two more times. I want you guys to be able to do it here and here. So again, what would you do? You'd start by making your cube, right? Bringing all the points down and then doing it as if it's see-through aquarium, right? Finding the center of the base, finding the center of the top. And then make your pyramid from the bottom points. And of course, off to the right as well. Guys, this one's testing you a little bit. You might have to rewind and you might have to watch it again. But if you've got your transparent see-through aquariums down, I think you're going to have some beautiful looking pyramids like this one. Joke, How beautiful is your pyramid? Beautiful in its own way? Oh, I can see you roughly sketching out the next one's already right. Yeah. I, you know, because I'm using a ruler, it takes a little bit more. But if you're doing it freehand, if you've been practicing some of those warm-ups about drawing straight lines, then you're going to find this a little bit easier to do it freehand. The ruler is a little bit more precise. But as your choice, you want it really tight or do you want a little bit loose looking. All right. Joe, using delegate loose? Yeah, I do. Okay. What do you think Was that hard to do know? Right. All it is is what we've done before. Doing a literal see toolbox and then finding the center and making it into a pyramid, right? Well, look, okay guys, so this is one-point perspective. Pyramids. Hope you're practicing on this. Have fun guys. 8. 1 point House: Hey guys, we're back and we've got a little bit of a tough unit for you here. Joey, do you know what we're drawing here? It looks like a house made. It looks like a house, but there's lines going everywhere on this one, right? Yes. What do we call those lines? Genome construction line. Exactly. These are our construction lines. And so you can see I've drawn this house once already, right? We're going to draw it again, but we're going to draw it with a little bit of a light touch because we're just going to kind of sketch it out. And let's see how this goes. Okay, so don't get too stressed about it. Let's just see what we can do with it. So the first thing I want you to do, I think Julie's going to kinda do free hand. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, really? Well, and you're brave. And I'm going to do a little bit more of a ruler thing and I'm going to use green and ugly green to start. Okay? So what we could do is draw a square. And what we probably should have done first, but it doesn't really matter too much, is I can draw a straight line across the top somewhere, somewhere up here. And I can draw my little vanishing point. That's my vanishing point. Okay? So that's a VP vanishing point. Some of this should be familiar for you guys now, right? Not a 100 percent familiar, but a little bit familiar. Okay. So what do we do? Well, we're going to take our corners and draw them back to the VP, right? Okay, So this should be looking super familiar for you, right? We've got our square here and we've got everything going back to the vanishing points right? Now. It's just a matter of how deep we want this house to go. It's our choice. I think. I don't know, let's say and both this deep and there's the back of our house. Okay. So what does this look like? Well, it looks like our aquariums that we were doing before, right? We've done this before. This is a one-point perspective transparent box, right? We've kind of done this. So how is this any different than what we normally do? Well, it's really not right. What do we do? We kind of we're going to cut from corner to corner, corner to corner and find our center there. All right. We can do the same at the back wall, corner, corner, corner to corner, and find our center there. And why are we doing this? Because if we draw a straight up, actually we can go straight through if we really want. We're going to find where our peak of the houses. Okay, so now we've got our box. What I'm going to do is kind of put that into the background just a little bit and start to work with a little bit of a darker line here. Okay? So let's say my peak, I wanted to start here. I can, what? I want to switch to black. I'm going to start somewhere around here. Is my, my house, my choice. I can see how how high that I I want it. All right. There's one side for the peak. There's another side for the peak. Here's another side for the peak. And here is another site for the peak. Okay? And of course this peak is going back to here. And it's going to come down off the side here. It's gonna come down off the side here. And then this corner will actually go down to the VP, but it will come short, so it'll be right about there. And same with this corner. Well, I should come to the vanishing point, but I'll come short right there. So I might have to go in and erase these little clips here. Okay, so what do we have here so far? Tool, what does this, so we're drawing I don't know, a shape. It's the roof. Oh, I thought you asked you for the shapes. No, we're just drawing roof right now so far. All right. Okay. So we've got this roof going on, right? And we can see how we did this angled and even the angle goes back to this vanishing point, right? Okay. Now maybe we want to add a bit of the frame to the house, right? We could add wall here at a wall here. And you can be as precise as you want or as casual as you want. It It's up to you, you know, Joey's probably being a little bit more casual than I am. Right. And that's okay. You know, it's all It's all good. It's your choice here. Okay, so I've kind of got this frame mapped out a little bit right. Now what I would do personally, I was, I was, I would head back into this sketch and just do some, some height lines. For example, this would be my height for my door and window. This might be the height for the bricks. This might be the bottom of the windows above, and this might be the top of the windows above. So now I've got some, some construction lines. There's a word you're gonna run into tons to work with, right? So what do I do? I come back here and I start to draw on my door and my window next to it. Now of course you could do this free handed if you want like Joe he's doing, or you can do it a little bit more with detail. And I'm going to zoom in just to make it a little bit easier for us. And what am I doing? Uh, both. Well, I'm going to set window here and a window here. And just kind of set them in two nice squares right? Now how you want to do these windows is up to you. Same with the framing of the door. You can do a top bar on the door and then a frame on either side if you want. You could do I don't know. You could do like a sliding window thing, right? Whereas in the paints are like this and it has a bottom shelf to it. It's really up to you how you want to design your windows and doors. Like I said, we usually get a little stiff when it comes to rulers and everything, right? I'm sure it always having a little bit more fun. Are you having more fun job? Feels like I'm designing a house, right? Perfect. So you can see how I've done everything there, right? You can even do this kinda half-moon thing if you want. What I would recommend with that is maybe if you've got a circle tool or something like that, you're going to do it like this. Some type of circle ruler. Maybe too big. Try it again and then erase the part that you don't want, right? So that's one way to do it. With the bricks down below. What I would suggest is we can use this first line that we laid down. We could draw another line below it for one layer of bricks and another line below that, another layer of bricks. Now the thing to pay attention with bricks as they don't just do lines like this. You know, they don't just go like this, okay? Bridgestone really lay down that way. What you'll find is they will lay down on top, but they're in the middle. We'll have your break here, right? So you can go like this. And if you want you get space at all. Note, I'm just kinda go along this way. But you're going to find the ones that are every second row is kinda the middle of the row in between, if that makes sense, right? Are you doing bricks now? Job? Perfect. There we go. And of course, when it comes to drawing a house, you know, you're welcome to add in Bush's a sidewalk, trees. Whatever it is, that makes your house how you want it designed. The key point, flowers. The key point is to make sure that your structure is where it's supposed to be. Okay. And I know this is tough. This is really tough. But look, we did a proper structure on this house, right? I want you to do your house side-by-side like this. All right, That's your assignment is a one-point perspective house. Now Joe, how's your yours ending up? I'm just finishing of the brick. I added welcome sign and flowers to make it personal. Very cute. Well, like here for little flower bed shelf thing, right? Can you zoom up for me? Do you feel you followed perspective rules? Probably, yes. But this part is a bit messed up. I've yeah, a little bit on the roof is a little wonky, but that's okay. You know, I feel like my square was walking in the first place. It's a bit hard to, actually, that's a pretty good thing to learn, is that if you start with a wonky square or start with a wonky foundation, everything will end up wonky. So if you want to draw something that's a little bit funny and off, very cartoony and stuff. Then do it. If you want to have something a little bit more structured, those stricter. You've gotta do that to the point of this course is so that at the end of it, at the end of each of these units, you can choose. But you choosing not because you don't know what you're doing or how to do it. Well, you choosing because you're choosing your choosing your own style. Okay, that's it for our houses in one-point perspective, guys, this is your homework. Let's see what you got. 9. Perspective 2pt: Okay guys. Geez, I know this is tough stuff, right? Like I've been kinda thinking, how can I get you guys going on this perspective stuff without just beating you up with it, right? That's why I really think it's important that you take the, the basics course before you get into this so you can see how it can be done casually. Then I teach you some of the rules to it. And then you can still casually have fun with it as the course goes on. But while we're here, we might as well get it done. So what you'll note, this is two-point perspective. Yeah, we kinda talked about linear perspective already. We've talked about one-point perspective, and now we're going to talk about two-point. Lot of stuff is the same. Something's different, particularly that extra point, right? Okay. So instead of that 1 we had in the center last time was really matter where it is. We're going to have to, and we're gonna kinda my decimal, place them off to the side here. Okay? And you remember last time I was saying we use 1 for when we have the flat object facing us and stuffer, that flattened tube side here. We're going to get rid of that. Instead. Let's see, let's see, it's turned and only the edge is facing us. Well, how do we do this? This is how we can, what we can do is take from this corner, bring it down to this vanishing point and this corner. And bring it down to this vanishing point, this corner. Bring it over to this vanishing point and this corner, and bring it over to this vanishing point. Kind of making some sense, but it still looks kind of weird. It's weird. Triangle thing, Grimm? Well, we know that we have this one vertical line here, all right? Depending on how big we want this cube, but we can put another vertical line here. And let's say another one here. And that kinda makes roughly a cube 0. Now we can kinda see, we can see the site is one side, this side is another side, right? And you know what? If I bring this over this way, and I bring this point and bring it over this way. Now we've got our cube. Yeah, I know. Not easy, right? Why don't we try it again. We'll start right here. Okay? So I'll draw one vertical line. I'll take the top, bring it to one side, take the bottom, bring it to the same side. Do the same on the other side, in the bottom over, bring the top. You're going to see this is gonna get kinda messy, right? We'll use maybe a vertical line here and maybe a vertical line here. Networks will take the top, bring it over, and we'll take this one and bring it over there. So now you can see how you know, here's one side. Here's one side. Right? Okay. And you can even see like if I really wanted to, I can start to connect these in it. That kinda makes this L-shape or something. So you can, is really cool. You can start to stack things. You can start to, you know, this is where you start to build and create a little bit, right? As soon as you get this down. Okay? And of course we're looking at the top here. You know, this is, these are the top viewpoints and stuff, right? We're looking down because it's below the horizon line. But if we had it above the horizon line, let's say right here. Well, same kind of thing. We would bring it over, over, over and over. We could draw our little other vertical lines, kinda messed up like that. And like that. They'll bring this one over. And this one over here. And now we've got a flying it literally looks like a cube in the sky or something, right? Yeah, I think that's cool. Okay. We're gonna move on though. And this is going to be where it gets a little bit more confusing. So I want a new line. We might as well put new vanishing points there. Let's do that same thing we were doing with the cube in the middle. I guess. We'll start with that. And what we'll do is bring it off to the side, like we normally do that to the top and a bottom. Bringing this one off to the side here, top and the bottom. Okay, what's next? Do you remember? We've got this vertical line right here, right? I think we need another one here. And depending on what, what do we make it more of a rectangle, we'll put another one here. Okay? So now that we've kind of got this, this side and this side, we need to have flesh it out a little bit. So we can take this line here going off to the right, and take this line and bring it off to the left. Now you can see we've got this box right? Not bad. What if you're keeping up with me? I'm impressed when I would really hope is at this point, you probably posited a few times, went back and did it again. So you're going to have some worksheets to work off of for all of these courses. But I think would be really good if you kinda just had a sketchbook off to the side or something and was able to do it yourself. Because this is where it's gonna get a little funky. Remember on the one-point and we start to draw aquariums, right? That's the see-through cubes. So that's what we're gonna do. Now. We've got some corners here that haven't been brought over. This one is brought over, but this one has been brought to this side. And this one has been brought to that side. Okay. So we can see how we can see the base here. We can see this wall, but we're still missing. It's kinda lined up with this, not really nicely, but there we go. Now we can see how this is a 2 perspective transparent cube. Why don't we try it again? Let's start with a simple line in the sky. Will take the bottom and bring it over and the top and bring it over the bottom, bring it over and the top. And bring it over with me so far. Our next point is usually a vertical line. And a vertical line. Remember, we're using vertical lines here for two points, right? We take this bottom of this vertical line, bring it over here, and the bottom of this vertical line and bring it over here. This is getting pretty tight, so maybe I'll zoom in for you a little bit. There we go. Now that's, that's a legit cube in the sky or not even cube like a rectangle in the sky or whatever. But what do we wanna do? We want to turn it into transparent. So we want to think of what's going on inside of this box, right? And to do that, you've gotta take this corner. Bring it over here. In this corner. Bring it over here it now. Okay. Now I can see here's this side. Like if I was to hear side1, side2. Here's a big site three, but inside we've got the top here, right? That's a that's a side there. But we need this one pain to come down there. And there. We've got it nicely in the air. Now, this might be kinda hard to see, so I'm gonna kinda do it over and black four-year a little bit. I'll do all the horizontal lines first just because it's easiest for me. Sometimes it's easy when you've got a ruler, right? You want to just kinda keep it consistent, right? There we go. So I'm kind of pulling them all to this side. And the ones that connect their nice floating transparent cube in the sky. Okay guys, listen, this isn't easy. I know what's not. Okay. This this is stuff for like usually high schoolers and everything. So I'm going to erase this for a second. It's not easy. I don't expect you to totally get it. But what I hope is once you start to understand this a little bit, you're able to just draw like some vertical lines. Something, maybe not that one, but these ones, right? And you kinda just like, okay, this, this one goes here. This one goes over here. Another vertical line, another vertical line. This one goes over here. This one goes over here. There I go. I dot my box. The key point is that these lines going to the vanishing point, they're going to narrow right there, this wide here, and then this wide and then this y and this one, they get narrower off into the distance, right? That's a basic rule, basic principle of linear perspective. Okay? So keep that in mind that they're going to narrow as they say, head towards this, this point. Okay. What would be nice is if you can do a lot of these kind of loose. If you want to use a ruler, it's cool. You know, like really, it doesn't really matter to me that much. I just want you to be able to be a little confident, kind of sketching like this a little bit, okay. And we go and that, right? So then you can come in and kinda do it up a little darker and say, okay, well, there's my transparent cube. It's got all those sides to it and stuff. And like I said, legit, I know this isn't going to be super easy or anything. This is going to be a little tough. But eventually you'll be able to just go like something like this right? Then. And you'll just make these, these transparent boxes so that you can kind of draw inside of them if you want to. This is where you start to now understand, okay, well, I have to draw a shape. And I'm going to use this two-point perspective because it's shapes on a little bit of an angle, right? The sheep is just a little bit off center to me, it's, it's not flush. Like the one-point perspective might have helped me. It wouldn't really work. I want this object to be turned just a little bit. I want it to be rotated enough, right? So that now I can draw whatever I shape I want within this two-point perspective box. Okay guys, this is tons a tough. So really these first few units in this course, to be honest, I expect you to watch them twice. There are only about ten minutes each or so. And really they could be 20, 30, 40 minutes or more. But that's not what I want because if I just keep on going and going and going on this, I think I'll lose you a little bit. So I want you to get it a little bit. And then if you not quite sure, you come back at it again. Okay? And even if you going into this course and you're like trying to draw something here like aji is a mess and up sums wrong, you know, like when I'm one of the common mess ups is like this. Yeah, I mean, I get it. It becomes not really any type of the sheep of the box gets all really weird and stuff. You want them as they go off into the distance to get narrower. Okay? That's the key point of this as you want it to get narrower as it goes off into the distance. But if you're messing up, come back to this unit and do it again. Because like I said, it's only about ten minutes. Come back to the 1.2 and just practice it again and again. Because I swear it's going to help you and it's going to be good for you. Okay guys. So Practices try to draw 2250 different little boxes. Like I said, even if they're just connect casual like this. That's it. That's all I want. If you could fill up a page of those, I think you'll be ready to roll on the rest of the course. Good luck and keep practicing. 10. 2 point Aquariums: Hey guys, we're back with another unit for you here and how to draw buildings. Were practicing a little bit on getting used to perspective. So I know you guys already went through one-point perspective, but now we're getting more complicated and we're getting into 2 perspective, okay? And bit by bit, I'm going to keep getting you practicing it, understanding it. And that's what this practice unit is about. So I want you to draw your horizon line across the top. Maybe put a vanishing point to one side and a vanishing point to another. Okay? And usually when we're using two-point perspective, it's because something has tilted. Remember when one-point perspective we are using just the flat on square. And it's kinda, you know, this is, this section here is flat to us. In 2 perspective. It doesn't work that well. Okay, So if, uh, if it's been a rotated, then we're going to do this. I want you to draw a single line. Okay? And from this single line, I want you to bring one corner to a vanishing point and the same thing, the other corner to the same vanishing point. And then take this corner to this vanishing point and this corner to this vanishing point. What does this look like? We got here to turn a really long. Well well, I can see that I was thinking offense, but either way it kinda works at PRB. Yeah, that could work to listen. This is so relax now you know, I'm not using a ruler, I'm just using free hand and everything like that. So don't stress about it. When it comes to 2 perspective. What basically happens is any vertical line is going to stay up and down vertical. But the rest lines will be going through these two points. Okay, so let's see if this makes sense. Right now we've got a vertical line here. And I want this one to be, maybe this deep will make it kinda like this. Okay? So now it looks like we've kinda blocked it off. Here's one side of this box. All right. Here's another side of this box. But now I've got some new corners that I gotta deal with. This corner here is going to come over to this one. And this corner here is going to come over to this one. And now we just gave ourselves our shape, right? But do you remember when we're doing that one-point perspective and before we got into buildings, we were kinda talking about aquariums. Yeah, yeah, I think that's what we should do here. We should draw through these boxes, okay? Because I think it really helps us to understand that this isn't just a, a full shape. It's got stuff behind it. Right. There's stuff going on on the other side. So I'm going to take this corner, bring it over here in this corner here, and bring it up here. And now we can see how it looks like an aquarium. Right? When you think Joe has your aquarium, do you think it's doing it? Okay, so I'm going to switch up colors here, and let's see if I can draw another one real quick for you. Okay? So what have I start with a vertical line. Maybe I'll draw a bigger vertical line here. I'm going to take each end of it, bring it over to the different points, right? To my different vanishing points. Draw some vertical lines, some up and down lines that make sure how deep I wanted right. Now that I've got these new corners. I start bringing them over and over. And now I've got my shape, right, I've got my cube. But I don't want to just do that. I want to keep practicing. So the corners that I'm missing, I'm going to bring them over and connect. And now I've got my, my see-through cute, my transparent cube, right? So you can even do it in the sky here if you want. It doesn't have to be anywhere in particular. You can just kinda draw it here because it gets kind of monkey with all these construction lines. And listen guys, I don't want you to erase your construction lines, not yet. Okay. So we can start the same thing. Go with corner to corner and look at that. Now we've got this goofy looking a rectangle in the sky, right? Okay. And then if we want to draw through it, we've got now this transparent goofy look in a rectangle in the sky. So what I'd like you to do is practice this many, many times. Okay? Just keep practicing. Starting with a line. Give it some body. See if you can find some corners going through. Okay. And see how you can find the different aquariums. I'm calling them aquariums, but that's not always, you know, they're not really works. We've got an efficient these things, right? Okay. And when in doubt, if it gets too messy, in a new piece of paper, put new vanishing points and start over. Here's my new line. Here's my end, here's my toe. Bring it up here, bring it over here. We get up here, bring it over here. We're gonna make this one this long. Make it a little bit narrow on this side. Bring it over here. Bring it over here, right? Okay. So I'm going to draw through as well. Now. I've got my very ugly shapes that I can start making a joke. What do you think of yours? It's a little bit confusing, but I think I got it. Is it gets so confusing with it is all of these construction lines right? So I know once we get into drawing with rulers, it'll get a little bit cleaner, a little bit more precise. But right now, I think it's just good to keep practicing that. Keep grabbing all your corners, bringing them to vanishing points and then realizing, Oh, this is my shape, right there, right? You're just basically making a bunch of, bunch of cubes, right? And that's what you're doing here, is drawing tons of cubes. So you could draw it in, you can draw it above the horizon line if you want. And then say, Yeah, I want to book floating in space or something, I'm going to take this corner, bring it over, take this corner, bring it over. And this is, you know, even if I don't want to draw the, the see-through fishbowl right now. What I can do is just have it like this. See, just so you guys can see the different sides a little bit there. I've got this floating disk in space. And now you can understand how, if you really understand how to do these 3D shapes with 2 perspective, well, you can start to make any kind of structures you want, whether their houses or buildings, sky rises, starting to look alien and stuff, right? Have your own designs. Guys. I want you to practice a lot. I've given you a few videos on how to practice 2 perspective so far. Practice this until you feel comfortable, really rough, and then move on to the unit on buildings. Have fun guys. 11. 2 point Pyramid: Hey guys, we're back with another unit for you here. This time we're going to be doing pyramids using two-point perspective. Joey, does it sound tough? Yes. Whatever. I mean, it gets tough. Okay. So what I want you to do is what I've got on my screen here, Joey's going to draw it out. You can draw a line and you can make it a flat line. And then draw kind of an X or a point at one end of it and then another exit the other end of it. All right? Okay, so this is going to be our 2, right? And then what we're gonna do is we're going to start to have some construction lines. So whether you're using a ruler or just free handing it, it's kinda up to you with how much, how hard you want this to be, right? What I would do is you could just draw a line kinda coming from the 1 there and across, right? You can have another line coming from the other point across. And this is going to be kind of our base. So for example, if we're going to draw our cube, it would kinda come like this. And then we'd come from this point over and this point over, right? We've done this before, this exercise for, for cubes, right? But we're doing a pyramid, right? So there's a few different ways we can do this. I think the easiest is going to be just to draw a straight line on this side. How to come over and draw a straight line on this side and have it come over. And now we've got this cube in the center, right? But what do we need to have happen? Joy, do you remember what, what can we do right now? We've got this solid cube, right? But we're kinda were hurting for something. Something's not working right now. We need to find the like see-through, right? Right. We wanna do this kinda see-through a query I'm style, right? So we're going to grab that one corner there, grab this corner, bring it over to here. And then this corner is going to basically come straight up. And now we've got our see-through 1.5. Okay? So once again, we're kinda going to run into what do we do, right? What are we doing next here? What I would recommend is what I'm going to show you kinda thing and this is what we've talked about a little bit before, is, you know, here's the bottom plane, right? Okay. And here's that top plane. Actually, I think, you know, I was right the first time. There we go. That's the top and there's the bottom, right. And then we want to kinda find where's the center in those right? And how do we find the center of the top and the bottom here? We made two excellent night. Yeah, we make kind of an x from one corner to one, and we've kinda got that already here, right from one corner to one, right? So that's going to be our center point, which weirdly we've already kinda lined up. So listen if, if we were sketching this off to the side here. Our center point would be very much different, right? Like everything would be very different. Right? But because we kind of weirdly, I perfectly put the center, then we've got this line that's perfectly center, right? Okay, so the next thing I'm gonna do is I'll switch colors just to make this a little bit easier on our eyes. And I'm going to kinda draw from one corner to this corner, to this corner. And then this one goes back to that corner and you can't really see it very well, right? So I'll back this up just a little bit more and I'll do it in black. You can see switch colors there. This is one side of the triangle, goes to this side of the pyramid, to this side. This one comes up to this side. And it comes down to that side. Okay? And we can see that this is a beautiful pyramid. I think it's looking pretty sharp, right? Weirdly, like I said, I happen to plot this exactly in the middle, so this square worked out, but I'm going to do it really quick and show you what it would be like if I didn't put it in the center. Okay. So Joe can follow along or she can do one somewhere else if she wants, right. It's it's up to her. You're going to do another one joule. Oh, yeah, I think so. Okay. So I'm gonna kinda do one in the sky here. I think it's good to practice. So guys, you can kind of follow along. I'm just going to start drawing this little floating cube in the sky right? Now what I do is, you know, same type of principle. I just kinda, I'm making my little see-through aquarium, right? Can be having that float in the sky. And bringing that one down there, this one to here. And you can see I've got the let's see if I can fill it here. I've got the bottom plane and the top plane, right? So if I want to find the center of these two planes, kinda like this, kind of like this one, right? And so that would be my pyramid. Now, what I might do is I wanna do this upside down so I can kinda go from the center here. Center there, center there. Do it there. And there's an upside down pyramid, right? The further you move it out to the sides here, the weirder, It's going to kind of be like if I put it out here, which I wanted to switch colors again. If I put it over here, then everything is going to get even funkier. Like this pyramid is going to have a lot of weirdness going on to it. Because you can see how evenness, this cube is going to be weirder, right? So the further away it is from both of these two vanishing points, the more sane it's gonna kinda look, the more reasonable it's gonna kinda look right. As you get closer to one of these vanishing points, it's going to get kinda weird looking. So here's my cube and what do I do? Then I can come in here and kinda, just for your visual sake, show you where you know that the planes are the top of the bottom right. Then I'm going to come back and find, find it here. There's the center. Find it here. There's a center. Can draw a line if I want. And then I'll come back up and I'll start to do there's one, there's two, there's three. And it wouldn't show because even though I know it's there, the back of the pyramid is, is hidden by this mass. Okay? So guys, this is two-point perspective. How to draw a pyramid joke. What do you think of yours? How did it work out? I think it looks a bit off because it didn't use a ruler, but still like, right? Yeah, yeah, I think using a ruler will make it a lot tighter. And you can see what Joe did actually was drew the underbelly of that floating pyramid, right? And so that's pretty cool too. You can plot out the underbelly, but remember, the underbelly is actually a square, right? It's, it's, it's this square, right? So if I was to reverse it, Let's say, actually I'm gonna do that right now just to kinda show you if I was to get rid of this, this one up here. And I wanted to draw it the other way. What I would do is, you know, here's the top. And it comes to here. And then it comes down to these points, right? There's got kinda ugly there. But I think you get my point right now. I'm still calculate. But there we go. And so we can see the bottom of this floating pyramid. So, you know, if you're drawing some kind of mythical Egyptian fantasy comic and you want to put pyramids flying in the sky. This helps. This also helps you get really familiar with drawing all types of shapes and stuff. The reason we practice pyramids is it's good practice to find the center points and then to work off those center points and get used to all of these ugly construction lines. I know you're probably like add all my papers all mess. It's okay. Move to another side of the paper. Shifted over to a different section or use your construction lines really light. We use often like a blue pencil crayon or something for our construction lines. And then draw over it with like a pen sometimes even just a big pen or something. So Joe, any recommendations for following along? Yeah, I think you can still do it without a ruler and still understand what's happening. I think you're right. Yeah, it's just going to be nice and loose and kinda cartoony feeling, right? Yeah. Okay guys, that's it for this one. Hope you had fun. 12. 2 Point Casual Exercise: Okay guys, just dropping in a really quick unit for you here that you can kind of use as a bit of an exercise, right? And I'm gonna do this without any rulers and without any child. Joey is taking a break. I think I don't know what I wanted to show you something here that one way you could do a quick exercise for like 2 perspective, right? Let's say you want to draw this horizon line. And like I said, I'm not using a ruler here. And you want to kind of plot in two points, right? What you could do from here if you want, is just roughly draw lines coming out of there, right? And it's better if you're using a bit of a ruler. I'm kinda be an all lazy with this right? Draw lines coming out of that side, lines coming out of this side. And now what happened? Well, you've got yourself a bit of a grid, right? So let's say you want to draw a building and you just kinda wanting to get some stuff out roughly where you know that you can draw, like you can kinda start to draw your building here, right? Have it come up and have it come down here. And you can even do it a little cartoony, have a bending, right? Have this bending up here and you can use this kind of grid to just have fun with it. Like, you know, be casual in how you're plotting in maybe this neighborhood or something like that, like kind of bend this one if you want, make it like I said, it kinda cartoony look or something, right? And just so you're following these lines back and forth, right? So this is a really quick way to just if you want to plot out a few buildings are a few blocks or something like that, a few objects. And see if, you know, this is where you want things to be. All right? Don't get stressed over this. It's not going to be perfect at all and it's not supposed to be. It's just supposed to be this little easy exercise for sketching. Okay, so just to review, what do you do as an easy exercise? All you have to do, draw your horizon line and draw your horizon line. Give your 2 vanishing points, right? Draw some type of grid. You can, like I said, use a ruler if you're being better than me right now, it'll go wonky, these lines are getting what I'm kind of having fun with this too. This is not going to be that, that tight of a drawing, right? This is all gonna be kinda cartoony and bendy and stuff I get. So I'm having a little bit of fun. And then you come in and you can draw like a straight line here. Well, I want to switch to black or gray straight line here. And you can follow the grid that you've kinda laid down here. And you start to draw in that way. Guys, I hope that quick little exercise helps you just even sketch out some rough things. In two-point perspective. It's nice, it's easy, it's fun. And like I said, you can get all kinda wonky with your buildings and starts. You can just get cartoony with it. Have fun with it, and see how well they fit within a grid like this. That knows it. And don't tell joy did this without her. 13. 2 point House: Okay guys, we're back and we've got a pretty difficult unit here for us. We are looking at 2 perspective house. Now I know we already did the one-point perspective house a little while ago. You can see it on the sheet, right? But on the same sheet, we're doing a 2 perspective. But as you can see, I've turned the sheet. Okay. It's easier when we have 2 perspective and we set 1 and another point way off to this side. Okay, so whenever you're doing two-point perspective, the further away the two points, the more realistic things are going to look. So let's see if we can maybe plot a bit of a horizon line. Do you remember how we do this? We can just draw a nice line. We can draw. Let's see. Maybe I got to get rid of this a little bit and make a new one. There we go. Let's do that again. I want to draw a nice horizon line. And then I'm going to plot out one vanishing point over here, and another vanishing point over here. Okay, so they're pretty far away from each other, right? And see one VP here and one VP here, right? So I hope at home what you're doing is turning your sheet just a little bit, right? You want to turn it so it's more horizontal joke. Have you done that? Okay, so we've got our vanishing points on either side of the page here. Right? Now, what are we going to do? Well, we're going to start with a simple line. And I think this is going to be really familiar for you guys because basically what we start doing here is building up that see-through box, right? Our little aquarium. So we've got that one line here. We're going to take this one corner and bring it over this one corner and bring it over to the VP, right? Hopefully by now, you guys are almost sick of doing this because we're grabbing another corner. And the last one, bring it over. This should be super familiar for you. Almost boring for you, right? Like you guys are probably done this tons by now. Okay? So now we know how this goes. What we're gonna do is make a bit of a tube out of it. We're going to bring the line up here, bring this over to this VP. And this is not so much a square, a cube, but it's actually more of a rectangle shape, right? The house is kind of long, so we're going to grab the backend and bring it over there. And what do we have? We now have our block, right? We've got a solid block. Do we want a solid block, Joe? No, we want an aquarium, right to see-through block. So we're going to grab that corner down here, this corner here. And then this corner matches up here. And now we've got our aquarium looking thing, right. Next thing we're gonna wanna do is kinda build a roof on this aquarium before we get too far. I think that's a pretty good stage to go through. So we're going to grab from corner to corner on the front panel. Little ugly. But we're getting there. And corner to corner on the back panel. And you can see how a lot of these construction lines start to overlap, right? Okay. Don't worry about it. Just kinda try to remember where you add. We're gonna go from the center and up from the center and up. So now I think we've got a pretty good structure for where our roof is going to be. What I'm gonna do here is I'm going to switch into black. And I'm going to pick a point here. Come down and get that part of my roof. Come down and gets that part of my if they're coming down and get that part of my roof. And this is a choice of how high you want your roof to be. Okay? This is going to come back to here. This is going to come back to here. And this one will come across back. And there we go. Cool. We've got a roof now, this one down here, it seems a little flatter and lower angle than the one we've got up here, but it's okay. You can choose the peak of your roof rate, how much you want to go. So what do we do? Well, on the last one we were doing, we did the frame, right. So we were doing stuff like this. We're kind of putting the frame down and a border across the house a little bit. All right. And you know what? It's easy for me to erase on the computer. And I know it's a little tougher on you guys at home if you're not using a computer. But don't worry about it, just erase if a line seems off, you can draw how long that is dropped straight up. And now we've got our basic house, right? And if I wanted to, I can add this little nine as part of the frame. Actually even back here. And notice how, how wide things are when they're close to us, and how narrow things are when they get further away. Okay. So when something is close to us, we know that it looks bigger, right? So this part of the frame is little wider and by the time it gets back here, It's a little narrower. So here's our house. What do we want to do here? Well, same thing as we did kinda on the one-point perspective. We want to start to add maybe something like the height of the door, the height of the windows, maybe the height of that of the brick work. And you know what? It carries this way too. That's the height of the brickwork. This is the height of a door. And if we're going to have any windows, let's keep them same height on this side two, right? Okay. So if I'm going to have a window on this side, one on, I zoom in just a little bit. That'll help us. If I'm going to have, let's say two windows on the front end of it. Well, I'm pretty sure we're going to have one or two windows on the back or along the side rather, right. Okay, So you can just follow these perspective lines. So you remember with 2 perspective, we're either going to the two points or we're going up and down, right? If it's not going up and down, it's going to be going to the vanishing points. There you go. Okay? We've got the door here. And the window that runs long here. Here we go. And of course we can fill in the blanks. We've got brickwork that runs along the bottom here. And we can carry that brickwork all the way along here. Unless I want to put it a door or something on the side here, right. We're starting to look a little bit like I got a barn going on here. I don't know. Are you doing, Joe? Okay. Yep. Okay. So we can have the bottom framing. But a little hint on this is, this is where it's going to get tougher. This actually sticks out just a little bit from the wall. So it's going to go something like this. You get a figure, It's a little bit of shelf, right? See if this makes sense. So this is going to be tough and I'm going to explain it to you in a second here because this is known as easy. I erase this one and see if I can make more sense of it. Okay? Okay. So this is the bottom of the window. It's going to come out following this perspective line just a little bit, right? So following the green going back this way. Okay? It's also going to follow this way to this vanishing point. Going up and down, we're going to have a little line here, little line here, little line here. And then of course this follows and as follows this way. So you can see how it's kinda like a little shelf sticking out, right? We're basically drawing a little elongated rectangle here in perspective. Okay? And so if you're going to draw a flower bed like Joe had before, well, this is what they would sit on, right? They would sit on a flower bed like this. My flowers have no pedals right now. They need to sit on something 3D. And you can add that 3D effect. It's not really an effect, just more care to almost everything. You can add it to the door here, give it some more depth at it to the brickwork as it sticks up just a little bit, right? Okay. So we're going to draw some of these bricks in. And just remember that it's either going to the vanishing point straight up and down, right? Remember we had bricks going straight up and down. And they're going to get smaller as they go off into the distance a little bit here, okay. And of course, on the middle layer, the one in between them gets a little smaller that way, all right, for a goals interests first, it goes in between, right? Okay. Looking at this house now, this is well, it's too long. It's kinda ugly. I think mine is too ugly. How jurors minds, I believe. Do you know what I'm noticing with yours? I'm going to grab this. Can I change color? Let's go with blue. I'm noticing that yours is not straight up and down. Yours is tilted. Do you notice that you're just kinda has a tilt to it and stuff, right? So this will hear in this wall here and your structure's off. You need to make sure that you keep it straight up and down. This should have been more like this type of thing. It's too late now, I think honestly, it's too late to really fix it that much. Okay. Yeah, it is. So don't worry about it. Okay. But this is this is something good to notice, is that if you're not following the rule of 2, that you're gonna get yourself in trouble. So with 2 perspective, you are either going to a vanishing point, vanishing VP1. You're going to VP to, or you are straight up and down. That is how two-point perspective goes. If you're not doing lines in one of these three directions, there's only three directions straight up and down, V P1 or P2, then something's wrong. Unless of course you're drawing a bush. Bushes. Bushes do. Okay. Flowers do with flowers do. But when we're talking about these shapes, these structures, that's the lesson to be learned here. You want to be going to VP1 managing point to or it's straight up and down. Okay, Joe. Okay. Was that tough? Yes. Yeah. I bet to the students at home we're finding it tough to. So what I want you to do is practice it a few times. Hopefully by now, you've practiced doing your aquariums, right? But now what this is, adding bricks into the side, adding doors are other windows or something like that. Even adding heck, maybe I could just sketch it quickly. Another addition to the house. All right. Here's another addition to the house that I'm drawing or something like that. If I was to add another addition to the house, what would it look like? How would I do something like that? All right. I would kind of sketch it out, something like this, right? That this other addition to the house might be added in to the house, something like that, right? This is what I want you to do, is it's a 2 perspective cube, right? And then as always, you're drawing through. And then you can even add another cube to it and see how it all works. This is tough. I know. I know it's not easy, but I think it's good if you guys practice on it. Okay, so you can start to add, once you've got a simple house like this, you could do something like this that is super tough, right? So if you think you've got it down, that you've got a basic rectangle house. Do two rectangles and smash them together. See how that works. This is a tough unit, I know, but I have confidence in you guys, Joe Joe, confidence in these guys. Very much So. Yeah, I figured if they've gotten this far, they know what they're doing, right? Let's hope so. Gay, show us what you got guys. Have fun. 14. Tips n Tricks: Hey guys, we're back. Well, not really. More like me. Joe is in school right now. I had an idea that I wanted to show you and I just couldn't wait. I want to show you a couple little tricks that will make things a little bit easier for you, okay? Now, I've been teaching a lot of hard stuff in this course. So I get it. It's, it's kinda sometimes like it's like, wow, that's too much right? Here's a few hacks that can help you. Okay, so in front of us, we've got rulers and stencils, right? Depends what you've got available to you in your area. I would suggest maybe think of grabbing some of these just to have them on hand. You know, a nice angled ruler, 45 degrees or whatever it is, right? That can help. And some stencils with different shapes, patterns, especially circles. I really like having some stencils with circles in them and stuff. Then obviously you get a lot of variety here. It's worth it. Even if you just keep them around for that one time or two times, you're going to use them. I think I think it would help you. Okay? So think about it. They're usually not very expensive. You can usually find them in a stationary store. And yeah, that's my one tip. Second tip is going to be how cheat. I've been spending so much time showing you how to do things correctly. And now I'm going to show you how to cheat. So we know that for example, whether it's 1 or 2 perspective, it goes back to a vanishing point, right? The kind of goal though is, is to have the vanishing point so far away that you don't really notice the tapering. So you can notice it like this if you want, right? But what looks nicer in some ways is if it's just going back into the distance or something like that, right? Where the vanishing point is somewhere way off my screen and you can't really tell, right? So that's what we're gonna do. Imagine that we're going to take these corners and we're going to see a 45 degree angle. And try to roughly match all these at a 45 degree angle, right? And just keep bringing them bringing them on back there. Everything and I'm not going to go all the way back with these and stuff, right? But I want to show you how to kinda make these into a 3D image. Remember, this is the 2D one that we were working on earlier, right? So what we're gonna do is see if we can transform it into 3D. So I'm just kind of going along, grabbing all the corners as if I'm bringing them to a vanishing point. But in this case the vanishing point is not really real. I'm going to let you do the rest of these because I want to show you what's going on here. What we're gonna do is just use these as a bit of a guide. And then see if we could pretend that we're adding some depth to this. Okay? So I'm faking a vanishing point. I'm just going to fake, fake it till I make it type of thing, right? We're gonna fake. Is vanishing point. How deep I want to go is up to me. Do you? I mean, Like how how deep these boxes we'll go back right. Butt. Here we go. Maybe hoping back to here. Now this one's going to be a little bit interesting. I'll show you why. Because this one has a curve to it, right? So if I'm going to zoom in, what's actually going to happen here as we can see this curve. And I want to kind of mimic this curve, right? And then I'm going to come down from there, down that way. And of course I'd bring this over and up and over, right? Because that's where these guys are going to. So you can see what's happening here is I'm kind of cheating. I'm basically cheating on this, this 2 or what can be at one-point perspective, right? I'm pretending that the vanishing point is way off, way, way off. And that's how I just guessed that 45. Now, normally I'd say do it properly. But if you're in a pinch, if you're in a hurry, this is an easy way to do it. The only thing I would watch out for is something like this on the stairs. You might want to come in and have a little bit of depth to it or something like that. Yeah, I mean, like you gotta kinda work your way through how to make this work here. Oh, right there. That kinda works. Okay guys, so I showed you a few little tips and tricks, how to get past or how to get to it faster. I guess that's the best way to look at it. One. Or the rulers. Use these to help you with some angles, with some circles and different shapes, even ovals and stuff too. If you're doing something really fast, you can actually use those rulers, that 45-degree ruler for example. And just whoosh, whoosh, whoosh, whoosh, whoosh. Do these word 2D buildings. Remember, we did this before. And now we easily made them into 3D buildings. Okay, so it's a little bit of a hack. But I think that when in a pinch, like if you're just designing something really quick for, for class or something like that. And you don't want to plot out these vanishing points or anything that this could really be helpful for you. Okay guys, I hope this helped you. And don't tell joy recorded someone without her.
