Perspective/Proportion drawing


In this drawing exercise we learnt;

Proportion: The size of something in comparison to itself.

Perspective: How large/small something is in comparison to something else.

Negative space: The empty space around the subjects, where there’s ‘nothing’.

Using these ideas, we created realistic line drawings of various items, which I feel turned out pretty well. At first I found it hard to make everything proportionate, especially with so many objects in the picture, but as I did more pieces I got the hang of it. Some strategies I figured out that helped a lot was ‘simple shapes’. Lightly sketching the items beforehand help plan out the piece and make sure everything is in place before any detail is added. Also by using a pencil to measure the size of the objects in relation to the rest helped make sure everything was correctly sized.
