Some Perspective

So, we had this assignment… a perspective drawing using Conte’ crayon and charcoal, combining one-point and two-point perspective. Other requirements were some sort of grid or pattern, vanishing into mountains in the distance, at least one building and an amorphous shape. My first attempt was way too ambitious with tons of figures, shapes and a building with windows and doors. No way. Then, I thought I’d put a rocket on the moon, greeted by blobbish locals, with multiple moons orbiting. Again, too busy. So, I arrived at this abstraction of the axis of evil and their quest for the bomb.

    I love this. I like the “retro” feel of it because it also has this futuristic-thing going on at the same time. The colors are great too–not-quite-red.
    Good job–keep posting ’em.

    Thanks, Sadie. Yes, Conte´crayon is the choice of amateurs, because it’s very forgiving. I think the piece would look nice in your living room and, for only $595, I can get it matted and framed in time for Dan’s birthday.
