Subject: STRUCTURAL DRAWING


Week 1

Lecture: The importance of craftsmanship. (again!) They are really pushing this, guys. Think about how your name is on the project and it's a representation of you. They don't want half-assed or sloppy things. Straight lines, straight cuts, neatness counts!

Assignment:Took notes:
Linear Perspective
  1. Convergence - parallel lines get closer further away and eventually intersect.
  2. foreshortening - how lines change (become longer or shorter) when objects rotate in space.
  3. size- - diminishing size creates depth
  4. position & overlap

ATMOSPHERIC PERSPECTIVE
When things are futher:

  • line weight is lighter
  • less detail
  • less color and more gray, dull colors

Plan Projection Method-Precise, blueprint, usually architectural perspective drawings.

Direct Perspective Method-"Make it up as you go / eyeball it"

Station Point-Position of viewpoint, eye level, horizon line, or height of station point.


Homework: Research 1, 2 and 3 point perspective. Find examples of each (perferably from magazines) and label the vanishing lines, vanishing points, and the eye level of each example



Week 2

Lecture: There was a demonstration on how to create a floor grid. I found a similar lesson here.

Assignment: Practice drawing basic 3D shapes in perspective on the grid. (A cone, a cube, a rectangle, a circle -[not a sphere])


Homework:Practice more structural drawings, do 4 each week.
