Final Perspective Drawing

I learned more about how to set up the back wall. At first I was unsure of how to set it up but by relying on my artists eye I was able to fix the proportions. I also discovered how to shade my drawing better.

If I did not have the back wall drawn to proportion my whole project would not correspond to the actual shape and layout of the room. The shading made it look less two dimensional.

If I remade my assignment I would make sure to add more details and that the stools and table are to scale. I would also shade more and add texture to the furniture and tiles, in other words make it look realistic.

The first thing I would tell them is that you need to make sure that the vanishing point and back wall (If they are drawing a room) are in the appropriate location. From there place the major components such as windows, tiles, and tables, after this you can move on to details. Remember to connect everything back to the vanishing point.

I mainly just drew what I saw and what looked correct. I did not use any websites, but I did check in with my peers to see if I was headed in a good direction or if everything looked to scale.

Final Perspective Drawing

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


This project was very efficient, it increased my artistic skills since I’m an artist. The one thing I learned was to draw in one point perspective. It was very hard at the beginning because every line has to connect to your vanishing point. 

How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?


Learning to draw in one point perspective is going to make my drawings better because it gives them an extra touch of greatness. It gives them a 3 dimensional perspective to the viewer.My drawings are already great, but learning new information could always make my drawings close to perfect.

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


The one thing I would differently about this drawing would definitely be to redraw the stools. I had a little trouble with the stools, and I think I could do better. 

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 would be to take their time and try not to get frustrated easily. Drawing a one point perspective drawing takes time, in which sometimes can be trouble to people.

What resource helped you the most and why?


I didn’t actually used resources in the web. My kind colleagues helped me out when I had trouble with a part of the drawing. Explaining and demonstrating were great.

Final Perspective Drawing

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” 

-Abraham Lincoln

One of the most salient things in life to know is that before you can fully understand something you must have equilibrium with all of its perspectives. For how can you truly know what a square is without seeing also the cube? How can you label a story character as a samaritan or a nefarious being without stepping into their shoes? The first stride in venturing into the world of equal empathy is to know that almost everything has infinite perspectives. This is foremost especially in the macrocosm of chaotic madness and rightful order we call art. 
It could be said that you can never reach an infinite number of perspectives in art. That eventually every one of them would be discovered and taught in a classroom or studio. One aspect of looking at that is false. New perspectives are thought of every day even without the slightest of recognition. Therefore in an ultimate loophole of a herculean panorama, where anything is possible, it is quite hard not to say that art perspectives are infinite. Although, mathematically speaking, infiniteness is a line of continuum motion in which the destination or point never comes close to your term. This a very arguable topic and could easily be discussed in class.
Speaking of infinities, something that a conclusion can come to without arguments is that you can't learn all of an individual's infinite qualities or separated beings. Which makes me say that I am exposed to new information but also apt to it. During this task I was novelly engaged with one of the infinities of art, one point perspective. It was a promenade that I never traversed before and I was intuitive in knowing how much a vanishing point in a drawing affected thus. I soon discovered that this could turn any number of my weird looking mindsets into reality perspective. The importance of this is that having a quantity of colorful options will only aid you. 
Just as there is infinite amount of perspectives for art, there is an infinite amount of perspectives of one point perspective. The view I chose to take was one of the negative light. In one point perspective, everything is white on black instead of black on white. Javier Peraza thought that he could not fight the compelling feeling to dig deeper in the very meaning of perspective. That is why he wanted to complete the project in that way. Since it is onerous to make out detail in a negative version of one point perspective I blue printed the very heavenly cosmos that Javier's mind creates but in a positive view. If corrected, it would be wise to travel to a different perspective of one point perspective. Of course just for clarity on the infinite macrocosm theory.

Often beginers trip and find their own follies. This is needed in life for without mistakes they would never rank up from beginners. An adduce that all beginners should remember though is that you must first learn the rules before breaking them. I personally, Javier Peraza, take the unorthodox path and do whatever I/he/X/Y/ a-Z/1-100/∞ wants. You must know that no one is confining you from doing what you want and you can use your freedom to produce thaumaturgy. As long as you know who you are talking to then you are fine.
fountain of imagination and creativity, that is indeed itself inarguably an infinite, is my mind and also yours. You should never underestimate the power of the human mind for the whole concept of infinities and time comes from it. They breed to make dimensions and mathematics. It will always be your source for anything and everything for it was my source. Note though that you have OTHER minds just as capable of accomplishing as much as yourself so Javier recommends that you listen to your peers and authorities.

Final Perspective Drawing

One thing I learned in this whole experience is how to draw using a vanishing point. With this tool in hand I was able to make my pictures look 3d which was a really amazing thing to learn. Learning this has helped make my drawing overall better because I allowed more symmetry to flow in my drawing as all the objects in my room didn't just look like objects but more like pieces of place giving the whole drawing more complexity. If I were to do this assignment again I would definitely take more time to draw each object out so that I would have more detail and an overall better piece of art. Some advice I would give to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective is to always measure things out so that things look more concise and well plotted. The resource that helped me out the most was my peers. Each one of us had our own weaknesses and strengths while drawing but when working together we were able to get the best of both worlds. This was especially shown while I was attempting to draw a table and couldn't get it to come out right but with help from my peers I was able to overcome the obstacle

Quarter 3 THenry

We drew from a online tutorial that helped practice slightly more advanced techniques than in the previous quarters.   Again, I ended up drawing some things that I normally wouldn't have. In the end I'm glad that I was able to draw some of the things that were listed, like the Bee or the Human leg.  Normally when I thought of insects, I payed no attention to the level of detailing that they actually hold.  After the tutorial , I realized how complex they can be. The same thing with the leg.  I think that these two drawings specifically have helped me improve my shading and hatching techniques.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
One thing I learned before that I did not know now is how to use an orthogonal coming from the vanishing point. I thought perspective drawing was accurate and really easy in beginning, with no measurements involved. It turns out though, that you need practice.


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

It made my drawing better because I was able to put my walls in perspective with my stools and tables. I was able to make them look like they were proportionate. Without learning about orthogonals, my whole drawing would look unrealistic.

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

If I was to do this drawing again, I think I would manage my time more efficiently. I was on task during most periods, but some periods I only got one thing done. I would also be more accurate with my measurements because there were many times where I didn't measure properly, and my drawing didn't look right.

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

My advice would be, use measurements no matter what, and don't just "eyeball" because your eyes will make mistakes. Also, make sure you know how to use the terms orthogonal, parallel, and vertical lines. Measuring is very important in perspective drawing.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resource that  helped me the most was the powerpoint on this project. I would have been lost otherwise if I didn't have the powerpoint to get me started. I made a lot of mistakes in the beginning, and if it wasn't for the powerpoint, then I would have made even more dramatic mistakes.

Final Perspective Drawing

​I have learned how to use orthogonal lines to connect everything I draw to my vanishing point. I have learned how to use math to center objects in a room while drawing. These techniques have made my drawings better by making the objects look realistic and 3-D. If I could do this project over again, I would try to erase a lot less, it made my paper look dark and unclear. I would also take more time on things to make sure they are perfect so I don't have to go back and fix it. My advice to anyone who has not drawn a one point perspective drawing before is to take your time, its worth it! Also, start with the end in mind; if you start the drawing without knowing what you want it to look like in the end, it'll be hard for you to space everything out evenly. The resource that helped me the most was the slidshow Ms. Hull made for us to look at while drawing the room. It helped me because I could see how someone else was going about the same drawing I was.

Final Perspective Drawing

​I learned how to male 2D features in a 3D format. Using orthogonal lines, it made made flat lines into actual tables or windows.

With learning this tricks, it has made my art more realistic and fun to view. Now when I'm home drawing, I can easily draw a room or a comic book cover as a gift.

I would make the stools and the floor a little better. I would make the lines a little more spaced out so that they are squares, not rectangles Also I would make the back wall just little smaller. My back wall is very big.

Some great advice for new comers into One Perspective drawing is use the vanishing point as a guide. It helps make every line on the page straight.

Mrs. Hull. She has supplied me with most of my knowledge and she helped me draw my back wall. She also helped me with drawing the stools. I had a bit of trouble, but she put on the right path.

Final Perspective Drawing

I learned how to determine which lines should be parallel or go to the vanishing point depending on a line's position in real life.

It helped my perspective of how to draw and it gave me an understanding of drawing 3D objects based on the object's position relative to my eyes.

I would probably make the windows smaller and put the table farther back since the apron of the window is too low to the ground if I had to do the assignment again.

I would tell someone who has never drawn first perspective that it is easy if you know when to use the vanishing point and when to make lines parallel to each other. Also, I would tell them to pay attention in class and know the definition of key words like parallel or orthogonal.

The slide show helped me the most because it showed me how to make the sizes accurate and what to do on some confusing parts like drawing the apron of the window and spacing objects.

Final Perspective Drawing

I learned how to give my drawings perspective and depth. Before we did this assignment I had no idea how having a vanishing point could make a drawing look realistic. Knowing all this helped me improve not only my artistic skills but the nature of my drawing. If I did the assignment again I would want to save my coloring until the very end, by doing so I could have easily fixed later found mistakes. My advice to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective is to be mindful of where your vanishing point is, because it is the most important part to your drawing. The sources on Moodle were a major help to me, also Ms. Hull for her artistic direction.

Final Perspective Drawing

​1. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
One thing that I learned that I did not know before was orthogonal lines and all the names for specific lines and stuff. I knew what they were and how they had to be done but I didn't know what they were called.  

2. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?
Learning these things made my drawing better because now I knew the right way to draw them and I became really good at doing one point perspective stuff in my opinion. 

3. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
I would probably fold my drawing differently and draw my lines a lot darker because they are hard to see in my picture. 

4. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
I would tell them to start small and practice before they try to do something big. Also they should try to be really precise so that they don't have to erase a lot of things.

5. What resource helped you the most and why?
The resource that helped me the most was my brain because I have a pretty good eye for this stuff, I didn't need a lot of help. If I did have a question I would go to moodle to see the presentation Mrs. Hull did so that I could see what she did.

Final Perspective Drawing

​A. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before.
I learned how to apply a vanishing point which helped me a lot with keeping my room in proportion.
B. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better.
It helped me a lot with my drawling especially with the two walls on the side. Without my vanishing point the walls would be uneven and out of proportion.
C. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
Next time I would work on the positions of the table more because the middle table was a little off. I also messed up with my floor tiles because I forgot to draw my orthogonal line so some of them are rectangles.
D. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
Make sure you draw the basic parts of the room first but do not draw the floor tiles until after you draw everything else on the floor. It is easy to draw around the objects and will save you a lot of eraser marks.
E. What resource helped you the most and why?
The resource that helped the most would be the one point perspective room that we drew with Mrs. Hull (here). it introduced the basics of one point perspective and I referred back to it a few times to make sure I did not do anything wrong.

Quarter 3 Art- Julian Makarechi

​My name is Julian Makarechi, a sophomore at Science Leadership Academy. This year I have decided to take a more intense art class taught by Ms. Hull. Lately her class has been focused a lot on shading and she has been able to give us techniques to how to do it well. The sketches posted below are the ones that I have been working on through out the duration of the 3rd quarter. I used drawspace.com to help me figure out the steps to each of my sketches. For my outside project, I decided to paint the Philadelphia 76ers logo on a ceiling tile (a picture of this is also in the slideshow below). With the help of my classmates I was able to complete this piece of art pretty well. Overall, I am very proud of my work this quarter and I feel like I am improving.

Final Perspective Drawing

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

One thing I learned that I didn't know before is that all aspects of a drawing are connected by vanishing point. It keeps your drawing in proportion. Without this you can't figure out your lines and it makes your drawing perfect.

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

I had to redraw my windows and some other things. I'd definitely pay more attention on my tables, and stools were kinda difficult for me to do. 

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

If I would do this assignment again I would definitely add some colors and make it more attractive by adding more details in every part of the room.

d. 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 before is that make sure your vanishing point is clear and every line is connected to this.

e. What resource helped you the most and why?

The resource that I helped the most were the guide lines on Moodle because  I was doing the same wall as on the moodle it helped me with how to accurately create a perfect room.

One Point Perspective Drawing

  1. One thing that I have learned that I haven’t learned before was it’s ok to erase because it’s a way of improvement and it’s the best way for you to learn your strongest points and and the weakest point that needed addition work. 
  2. Learning this really made my drawings better because I recognized my mistakes and changed them for the better. 
  3. If I did this assignment over again I would not procrastinate, and spend every ingle minute of time given to work on this. 
  4. My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing is to draw as if you are looking at the thing you are drawing. You just don’t see a flat surface but you see 3 dimensional surface so draw in your point of view. 
  5. The resource that actually helped my out the most was observing other people’s drawings and trying to craft them into mines.

Jiwon Choi- Final Perspective Drawing

Something I learned while doing this drawing was how to draw objects without any guide from someone. I learned how to draw something just by looking at the original picture and making an exact replica of it. By learning how to draw objects without a guide but with just a picture of it, I know that I can draw real objects in life without having problem with it. In fact, my skill of drawing a real object will increase now. The resource that helped me the most to draw this was the website’s steps on how to start it and our art teacher’s (Mrs.Hull) advices. She told

     Even though I believe that my skills increased in drawing, my drawing of this room was not perfect. If I had a chance to do this assignment again, I would make the center square with the vanishing point a little bit larger, and put the light that is on the ceiling in the center. My advice to someone who has never drawn a one point drawing is telling them to imagine how that object might look like if you were above, side, or below it and make the drawing. If one imagines it in this type of way, one can know how to make the drawing a little bit more realistic.

Final Perspective Drawing

a. One thing that I specifically learned was that all the objects in my final drawing are made up of little rectangles. For each item I had to draw, the base of the item started with drawing little rectangles. Also, in order to make something 3D you add more small rectangles. Before this project I looked more at the lines, than the actual shape I was making, but now I know that it's ALL rectangles. 

b. This learning about the whole concept of starting from rectangles really helped my drawing out. Instead of making random lines, I knew I had to start with a rectangle. This made drawing everything much easier. I could more easily create my objects, and also tell if I was doing something wrong!

c. If I had the chance to do this project over again I would make my back wall bigger. When I look at my drawing as a finished product, the back wall is so tiny, that some things were squeezed in and I could've made it more proportionate if I had had more room!

d. My two major pieces of advise that I would give to someone who has never drawn in one point perspective is to 1) start every object with a rectangle, and then add more rectangles to make it 3D. 2) Measure EVERYTHING. It's crucial to have straight lines in your drawing and if even one thing is off, it can mess everything else up. For every line I had to draw I would measure a distance on one side, and then measure the distance on the opposite sides, and then connect the dots!

e. The resource that helped me the most was Mrs. Hull's drawing guide. It gave you the basics, so that you weren't lost on what to do, but it let you figure out the details which made you really think (and erase a lot). It was super helpful going step by step in the guide, because I could reference the pictures, while making my own!

I learned how to make objects recede into and pop out of space.


By knowing how to do this I was able to create door ways and window frames.


If I were to do this assignment again, I would make sure to make the lines darker so that it is more visible in the photo.


Make sure that your lines are only either horizontal (up and down), vertical (left and right), orthogonal (to the vanishing point).


The olejarz website really helped me grasp the idea of one point perspective and how to make things pop out into space.

English Macbeth Project

1. My project is a thought map, or visualization illustrating my essay. It uses my essay’s ideas and illustrates them with a whiteboard animation. I thought this would be a good idea because it summarizes all of the thoughts from my essay, and allows me to show them in a short and entertaining way.


2. I first made an outline of all the important concepts of my essay, in order of where they went chronologically. Then, I illustrated each concept. After that, I filmed myself drawing the concepts on a whiteboard, fast forwarded it, and set it to music.


3. I had difficulty with deciding how to best represent each of my concepts with illustration. I had to choose out of a variety of possible ideas for each thought.


4. I am most proud of how entertaining/ interesting I was able to make my project. The responses from my classmates were generally positive, and they found it fun to watch. If it is fun to watch, that means they paid attention to it. If you make something that people want to pay attention to, they will learn the information that is being presented.


5. If I did the project again, I would make each idea more fleshed out. I felt like I didn’t explain each idea clearly enough, or had enough information with each idea. I would also add voice over to verbally explain the ideas I was trying to represent.


6. I learned that there are many creative ways to present information and ideas, such as song lyrics and tunes, sculpture and other image mediums, and rap.


7. I learned that I am able to make an effective, yet somewhat entertaining, and most importantly understandable presentation that people are willing to watch.
