Sketchbook #1 – Design a Character for an Animation

Categories: Sketchbooks No Comments

For this sketchbook assignment, you will be designing a character for your flash animation. You will be using this character in your animation that you will be building in class!

Sketchbook Assignment – 2 Point Perspective House

Categories: Demonstrations,Sketchbooks No Comments

Tomorrow you have a sketchbook assignment due – a shaded drawing of a house in 2-point perspective. Remember, the main difference between a 1-point perspective and a 2-point perspective drawing is that the house is facing you in 1 point, whereas in 2-point, you are viewing the house from a corner, so that there are two sides of the house going away frmo you.

If you need a little more help, this video goes over how to draw 2-point perspective, but the examples in it are made up from scratch, whereas I want you drawing from real life.

I found the following examples online, except that most of them have little or no shading.
