CGMA Itro to perspective course. Week(1-6)
Overview of 1, 2, & 3 point perspective. Cone of vision. Anatomy of the 4 basic primitives and the ellipse. Line, weight, and draftsmanship.
Week 2: Perspective techniques: Duplicating distance in space. Alternate vanishing points & lines. Transferring figures in space. Transferring planes and details with reference points. Angled Surfaces.
Week 3: Intersecting primitives. Plotting form intersections. Introduction to basic compound surfaces: curves.
Week 4: Compound surfaces continued; Using sections to make surfaces that curve in 3 dimensions. Reproducing curves with symmetry. Basic Car demo.
Week 5: Advanced compound surfaces: Emphasis on adding details. How to create basic geometry & draw complex shapes.
Week 6: Organic objects; Trees, the Grand Canyon, Rock Formations, etc. Focus on the “theory” of mathematical perspective. Over-laps and form intersections.
