Simple Cubes in 1- and 2-Point Linear Perspective

 

Using the techniques of linear perspective covered the videos below, lightly draw two sets of nine transparent cubes (three above, three on, and three below the horizon line). Draw the first set in one- and the second using two-point perspective on separate pages in your sketchbook. Note that for one-point perspective, the plane closest to the viewer will be parallel to the picture plane. In two-point perspective, an edge (where two planes meet) will be closest to the viewer. For this assignment, vanishing points may exist outside of the page. Leave the orthogonals intact, but darken the lines marking the edges of the visible planes of each cube.
