The Victorian Era

Our assignment for So You Think You Can Draw this week was to create a perspective from another era. I chose to do the Victorian age. I tried to hint at the use of patterns and all of the "clutter" people liked to show in their homes. Heavy draperies and carved furniture were also important during this time period.

Case Study Elevation

This is the elevation for of the Case Study 9 house that we have been working on. Showing line weight and shadow is important in conveying depth, especially in an elevation. These are things that I worked on with this drawing. I need to work on showing more texture to differentiate materials.

Case Study 9 Section

This is a section of the Case Study 9 house that we have been working with. We have done a rendered floor plan, elevations, and soon an axonometric view. We were able to add our own furnishings and items to the house. Just like with the other drawings, line weight is important when conveying depth. Things closer to the viewer have thicker lines than things further away.

Getting digital

Our 4th "So you think you can't draw" assignment was to do a contour drawing of a camera and then add color in photoshop. Even though there isn't much color on the camera itself I wanted it to pop. Therefore I added a muted green color in the background to make it stand out. I created the circular reflection in the lens and then decided to use that as a super graphic of sorts across the whole image. It's a lot easier to experiment and try different things and be able to undo instantly with photoshop.
