Final Perspective Drawing

I have learned a lot of new things when working on one-point perspective. Though I think the most thing I learned is that lines have to be either be vertical, horizontal, or orthogonal. The lines have to be either of these choices are it will ruin the rest of the drawing. How this improved my drawing is that instead just setting a certain length and drawing diagonal lines. By knowing this, I created the right lines that went all the way to the vanishing point.  

I would probably give more detail in the small things like the window blinds. Also with more practice I will be able to draw straight lines faster and won’t have to erase as much as I did during this project. My advice to them would be to make sure you draw your necessary lines to the vanishing point. Without them, it wouldn't be in one-point perspective. I think the slideshow that Mrs. Hull provided was the most helpful. It was really helped to show how to draw in one-point perspective. It showed us more of what to do in one-point perspective which really helped when working out home.

Quarter 4 Art

This quarter, I decided to try my hand at things that I've never done before. Such as the self portrait, I was never able to do so because every time I tried it didn't come out as nicely as I would want it to. However, after practicing over the years, I finally was able to draw something that looked nice to me. While it's not in depth as it should be because I'm still not so good with art, it is the basic outline of me. I like it a lot because it shows my hard work.

This quarter I also decided to draw more fun work. I worked to try my hand at more complicated and advanced art, even though it's not perfect. It's still my art work and I'm proud of it.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before? I didn't know drawling could be so relaxing.

b. How did learning this thing make your drawings better?My lines were more confident and and I was proud of my work.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?I would use my time more wisely if I did this project over.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?USE YOUR TIME WISELY! 

e. What resource helped you the most and why? A ruler helped me the most because without it, my lines would be wiggly.

Final Perspective Drawing

Before this project I didn't know about orthogonal lines. Orthogonal lines really helped me draw 3D objects.

Using what I learned about the different types of lines made my drawing neat and clean. It helped me achieve the goal of drawing the room to the best of my ability. This project provided me with a lot of practice of drawing the different types of lines. If I did this project again, I would try to ask Ms. Hull more questions. I would also work on it at home more than I did. I would tell someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to keep going even though it is frustrating. Also, I would tell them to never forget their vanishing point Some things may look weird but when you are finished it will be good. One of my resources were my classmates. They answered all of my questions and taught me a lot.

1) I learned many things throughout this project. The most helpful thing was vanishing point and orthogonal line.

2) Learning about the vanishing point made my drawing better because most of the line I have to draw for vanishing point.

3) If I did this assignment again, I will more focused on my windows.

4) My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to always make more focused on vanishing. The vanishing point is a most important drawing for a one point perspective drawing because all your lines end up going back to vanishing point.

5) The slideshow was the resource because the instructions were very clear  and the pictures were easy to look.

Final One Point Perspective Drawing

​A. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
I had done a one point perspective drawing before, in which I made an "x" on the back wall and drew a point in the center of the x. I did not know that this was called the vanishing point, or that diagonal lines are called orthogonal and must come out of the vanishing point. 

B. How did learning this thing make your drawings better?

 Before, I had made diagonal lines parallel to each other, but a one point perspective drawing looks more realistic and three-dimensional if the diagonal lines are all orthogonal, and come out of the vanishing point. The objects in this drawing seem to stretch out of the paper due to the orthogonals.

C. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would be more careful when going over my lines in marker, and would have only used the thin-tipped sharpie instead of using both a regular sharpie and a thin-tipped one.  I made a few mistakes from extending my lines too far in marker, and from being a little impatient. I should have taken my time and experimented more, by changing the length of the lines in pencil, to make the sizes of objects seem more realistic and visually appealing.

If Ms. Hull had allowed it, I would have used a different type of paper, because the paper we used was too smooth to shade in with colored-pencils. I had to switch to crayon to get most of the coloring done, and the wax tended to rub off the paper. The markers stayed on though. Next time, I may not color the drawing in at all.

D. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

Do not be afraid to start drawing. As long as you use a ruler, find a vanishing point, and only use orthogonal, vertical, and horizontal lines, the drawing will look accurate and amazing. Even if you have done a one perspective drawing before, there will always be lines to erase. Just keep drawing lines and observing the room, and before you realize it, you will have captured three-dimensional objects on paper. As you complete the drawing, it will seem to become easier.

E. What resource helped you the most and why?

Watching other people draw and asking them for advice helped me the most. I am mostly a tactile learner, and it helps to see the process of how to line up the ruler, and the lines needed to set up the paper in the order they are made. Watching people sketch parts of the room was easier to understand than looking at a photo. If I had only seen photos, I would have had to guess which lines are made when. Plus, people can give me feedback on my own drawing as they draw their own.

I could not imagine how to draw the stools. I was able to use Google Images and see what a stool looks like in a one perspective drawing, From there, I was able to sketch the stools on my own paper.

I was unable to take pictures of the room that showed everything I wanted to draw in detail. Plus, it was hard to remember what colors the walls and ceiling tiles were. So, I looked at videos from educon that were filmed in the art room to make my drawing look accurate when finishing at home.

Q3 Art Karoline Castillo (KC)

In the third quarter, I decided to focus on more paintings since I completed the drawings the previous year. Compared to any other quarter or year that I have been apart of in Mrs.Hull`s class, this one has to be my favorite. Aside from art, I have developed trusting relationships with my teacher and my classmates. The art room has become more than just an art studio, but my sanctuary. 
This quarter`s ideas for painting came from what I enjoy within. First, I thought "what is it that I love most?", music! I drew out the guitar with different colors and parts of the rainbow mixed in with music signs representing music in the world. Next, I thought of what else fascinates me. That is, the rain. I was already thinking of the "melting crayons" idea, so why not represent the rain with the crayons? Under the rain is a young lady on a swing and a young man swinging off of a pole and under his umbrella.

Blue Stream:

a.) I learned that your lines have to be straight and the drawing depends a lot on the vanishing point and orthogonal lines.
b.) Learning this made my drawings better because I could then be more realistic when I started to draw.
c.) If I did this assignment again I would get more help and make my lines darker so it's easier to see.
d.) My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective would be to practice on regular paper first, get help from a teacher, and pay attention to her or his instructions.
e.) The class tutorial helped me the most because i was able to see the drawing done step by step.

Final Prospective Drawing

Final Prosepctive Draw

One thing that I learned from this project is that the vanishing point is extremely important to all art forms. All of the lines I have made came from the vanishing point. I think that every drawing need a center to start with, so the vanishing point have to be the center of a room drawing.

Learning this made me draw better because now I know how to use the vanishing point to my advantage to draw a leveled drawing. For example, without the vanishing point, my room drawing will be uneven because I don’t have anything to focus everything on.

If I were to do this project again, I would spend more time adding details to the actually drawing instead of the practice drawing. I have spent a lot of time focusing on perfecting my practice piece instead of getting a start on my final drawing.

I would suggest him or her to mark the orthogonal from the vanishing point to the angle of each shape in the drawing because it really help you keep level and the right elevation for each object.

The source that really helped me was the slides that you made to show us step-by-step how to draw the room.

a) I learned how to make drawing look the way I wanted them to be. I now can take a image and pretty much draw it in a way that'll make you think that you see exactly what I do. It's a cool skill to know because it messes with the person's mind.

b) Learning this skill really helped me because my drawings look more realistic. I have a skill that makes the viewers believe that what I'm drawing is really in front of them.

c) If I did this assignment again, I'd spend more time on it to really make sure that I captured everything in my drawing. If I could get more detailed, it would be a excellent drawing.

d) My advice to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective is to just try. I thought that I couldn't do this kind of drawing but I did pretty well. As long as you try, you will do just fine.

e) Something that really helped me was my classmates. They were there to keep me on the right track, and helped me when I needed assistance.

Throughout the process of learning how to draw in one-point perspective, I have learned many things, however to me, the most important of the skills that I have learned has been the skill of looking at an object as though I have never seen it before. In one-point perspective, it is key that all of the lines are either orthogonal, completely horizontal, or completely vertical. To accomplish this, one must look at the object as though it were a foreign landscape, and learning how to train my artist's eye to do this was crucial to my success in finishing my drawing.


After some practice in this skill, I was able to more easily and efficiently complete my drawings, because I no longer had to erase and redraw multiple times in order to fit what my mind was picturing, rather than the object in front of me. For a previous assignment in particular, in which we were tasked to draw a shoe, this made the process much more enjoyable for me, as I liked the challenge of having to map out this "new" object.

If I were to re-do this assignment, the one thing that I would change would be my use of in-class work periods. I spent the large majority of my time finishing homework for other classes, or just goofing off, and that could have helped me maximize my in-class resources (such as the wall itself!). However, I do tend to work better on my own time, and I was able to complete the project with minimal issues at my home.


My advice to anyone who is beginning a one-point perspective drawing or class with no previous knowledge is to practice, over and over, how to look at an object as though it was foreign, and then break it down into orthogonal, horizontal, and vertical lines. This skill, in my opinion, is the most important one when drawing in one point perspective, and greatly sped up the process, while at the same time adding a fun challenge. It makes one-point perspective much more enjoyable, and is vital to your success.

For this project, Ms. Hull's one-point perspective slide deck with detailed instructions about how to draw the wall of the art room facing Arch Street was the most helpful resource. Its explanations taught me how to do the windows and doors, which proved useful when I was at home completing the project. As she was not here, the slide deck served as my teacher, and I recommend it to anyone who attempts to draw anything in one-point perspective, as it provides useful tips.

I have learned a lot about art this year. For one, I am not a grand artist. I never had that "artist eye". However, during this course I was able to find my inner artist, my inner perspective. The most important thing I have learned about art is, its how you see it. Drawing isn't a correct or incorrect message, it's the view of the person that makes it. 

From this I was able to use four very important tools to make my drawing the greatest it could be, a pencil, multiple erasers, a ruler and my mind. I was able to view the room for which I drew in a whole different way once I started. It became a drawing for which I was proud of to call mine. 

There were multiple things I would do differently, for one, I would work on my couch and table more. I was in a rush when I made them so it was not a Picasso object. I would also work more on my floor. I feel as though I did not complete the floor greatly, which I wish I could redo again. 

If anyone were to make a perspective drawing, I would give them one rule: use your artist eye. That's really all you need. You do not need to be the greatest, you just need to use your ruler and your one point and you will do fine. 

Honestly, my viewing of the drawing was the greatest measure for completing my drawing. The website Ms. Hull gave me was great as well, yet I really would not be able to accomplish such a great drawing as this one without a intense look at the classroom around me.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before? Your lines have to be very straight.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better? I get to put the things I learned in class into the project.

c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently? I would chose a different wall.

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before? Make sure you know the basics of drawing , then try it out yourself and see how it works. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why? The resource that I used that helped me the most is the one on the canvas art page. I liked this resource because it was really helpful because it gives me step by step instruction.

​a. One thing that I learned is that perspective drawing is easier than it seems. All it is is straight lines and measurements.
b. Learning this made making my drawings easier because it helped me remind myself that doing this is simple and all I had to do to get it right was slow down a little bit.
c.If I did this assignment again, I would probably go into the art room during lunch so I could work on it more and get help on drawing the things I didn't know how to draw.
d. My advice to someone who has not done this assignment is to slow down and look over your work. Rushing to get it done will make your drawing sloppy. If you need to, take a break. Just slow down.
e. The resource that helped me the most was my classmates and Ms. Hull. They helped me when I did not know how to do something.

Final Perspective Drawing

Squaready20140418155137
In my 9th grade art class we drew one point perspective drawings of a wall in our classroom. One thing I learned that I did not know before was that one point perspective drawings are only made up of three types of lines: vertical, horizontal, and orthogonal. A vertical line is one that goes straight up and down, a horizontal line goes directly side to side, and an orthogonal line goes through the vanishing point. The vanishing point of a drawing is the one spot where all of the orthogonal lines come together and essentially disappear. Hence the name vanishing point. Learning this definitely made my drawings better because without it, my paper would look unrealistic and disproportionate.
If I did this assignment again I would manage my time better than I did before. I thought I had all the time in the world to finish my drawing but then I found out I had nerve damage in my hand. The brace I am wearing makes it difficult to write and hold a pencil so I was scrambling to get it done. My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before is to, as my art teacher says it, "Use your artist's eye." This basically means to look at your picture and see if everything looks real and proportionate. You need to just guess where some lines go and look good, and if you don't use your artist's eye your picture won't look good at all.
The resource that helped me the most was definitely the slide deck we were told to look at. It gave a clear and concise tutorial of how to draw a one point perspective. Another resource that helped me was my friends. It was great to have different opinions of my work and to hear and see what I was doing right and wrong. Both of these resources really helped me to finish my drawing and make it look realistic.

What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?

I learned many things throughout this project. However, the most helpful was learning the types of lines, which were horizontal, vertical and orthogonal.

How did leaning this thing (types of lines) make your drawings better?

Learning about the different types of lines made my drawing better because to complete the project we had to draw each type of line many times. Knowing and understanding what they were and how to draw them truly made it easier to draw and made my final product look neat and clean.

If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

If I did this assignment again, I’d be more efficient during my class work periods so I’d have less work to do later on. Also next time instead of folding my drawing, I would find a better way to store it. Due to the folding, I had to deal with a lot of crease marks which interfered with my drawing. In addition to those, I’d also try to be more patient with my drawing! Yes, sometimes it was stressful, but the more patient you are the better your final product will look!

What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to always keep an eye on the vanishing point! Without the vanishing point, your drawing may look really weird and your lines may be off. The vanishing point is a key tool in drawing an one point perspective drawing since all your lines end up going back to it.

What resource helped you the most and why?

The slideshow was the resource that helped me the most because the instructions were very descriptive and the pictures were easy to see! They helped me to complete my project step by step.

Final Perspective Drawing

Art Class

While working on this project, I’ve learned that keeping a one point perspective while drawing is difficult and very important. While I was drawing this, I constantly messed up because the perspective of the drawing varied each time I added a new object to the picture. Some orthagonal lines were not connected to the center and some horizontal lines were at a slope. In order for the picture to look right, each object had to have correct, straight lines and each object had to have correct visual representations because everything was in a different place in relation to the center point. By learning this, it made my drawing to turn out better. If each object had lines that weren't straight, the drawing would look crooked and as if multiple people were looking at it from multiple angles. This would defeat the purpose of the drawing being from a one point perspective.

If I had to redo this assignment, I would definitely focus more on how it looked. Some objects weren’t drawn to scale, now that I look at it, and I think I spent too much time on things of a lesser importance. I wouldn’t focus so much on the details as I had tried to do this time because I feel as though the perspective should be most important. After I get the perspective right, the details would just fall into place. If I had to give advice to someone who hadn't done this project before, I would say that they should use their eyes to most determine the way the drawing should look. Your eyes are the best way of making the drawing look the proper perspective and the best in relation to how the room actually looks.

The resources that helped me the most are my eyes and the ruler. My eyes helped me because I had to determine how the room looked, how to represent it on paper properly, and how to make sure that the perspective was mostly correct. The ruler helped me take what I was looking at and draw it. It helped me make straight lines, proper scales and neat objects.

for a lot of these I used my tablet, I recently got a new art program called Mischief and used this as an opportunity to practice using it. It has a really different feel than drawing on paper and it got some taking used to with the coloring and all of the options it has. I still have a lot to practice with colors and blending, I'm not quite where I want to be. I practiced anatomy a lot with these, trying to get proportions right while still keeping my more cartoony feel that I like to use with my drawing style.

One thing that I have learned through this project is that vertical, horizontal and orthogonal lines shape a precise drawing. If one other the three lines was not precise the rest of the drawing would be off too. Learning the importance of precision made me spend more time and put in more effort in the drawing. I was constantly erasing, making sure the alignment and proximity of the drawings was the best of my ability.

If I could do this assignment once more I would definitely begin the process of drawing earlier than I did. I would also spare some of my time apart from class to work on the drawing. Additionally, I would take photos of the room that we were drawing to make sure I had as much detail as possible. My number one piece of advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to follow directions. The lines that you draw have to be straight and placed in the appropriate place because each line is essential in creating different parts of the drawing. The resource that helped me the most was the slide show posted on Canvas. They included step-by-step instructions to creating the one point perspective drawing. At the end I was able to see a completed figure drawn and try to duplicate it by simply drawing what I see.

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?:

How orthogonal lines help to correctly draw 3D objects. I have drawn 3D objects before but I see much improvement now that I am using orthogonal lines versus trying to just judge it visually.

b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?:

This technique, as I said, will make all 3D object I draw realistic and easier to do.

 c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?

I would try to pick a wall that I was allowed to do the first time. 

d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?

Do the wall in the guild because it is a difficult concept and it will make it easier if you can see a correct example of what you are attempting. 

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

Other classmates because they were accessible and they could show it while they talked about it and that was extremely helpful.

FINAL PERSPECTIVE DRAWING

One thing that I have learned specifically that I did not know before is how to try one point perspective. Before taking this art class I could never draw a one point perspective for my life, but after learning the steps and tips for drawing one point perspective it enriched my abilities to draw. So now it comes easily to me to draw one point perceptive drawings. This made my drawing better because it tested me and it brought out skills that I would of never found if it was not for this lesson. Also it helped me make my drawings more clear? For example before I would just free hand my drawing and would not use my artist eye to see if it was realistic. But now it comes a custom to me to make sure to proof-edit my work and make sure that my lines are correct. If I were to do this assignment again I would use my time wisely and finish the main components of the room first then add the details in. My advice for someone who has never drawled a one point perceptive is to use a ruler at all times! If not it would mess up the whole room and also use your artistic eye. Artist or not everyone has an artistic eye. Also make sure you use your Horizontal line and vanishing point, this is the main structure for the drawing. Resources that had helped me the most was the ruler because the lines are the one that brought the drawing to life and made everything realistic.

Q3 Artwork

This quarter, I spent a lot of my class time working on painting another ceiling tile. This time, Arshelle, Leah and I all worked on painting Olaf from Frozen. This was really fun, and I think he turned out really well. It also taught us a lot about painting, we learned how to paint shadows and create depth on the tile.
This quarter, I also took a trip to England. While I was abroad, I noticed a lot of the pictures I took included things like horizon lines, perspective points, and other things I remember from previous quarter sketches. I've included a few of these pictures at the bottom of my portfolio.
