I’ve been helping another DA-ist with some perspective views. Away back in the depths of time I took a lot of mechanical drafting classes which always seemed to include some sort of multi-point perspective drawing.
Well this will either blow your mind or melt your brain. Brace yourself...
This might need some explaining.
The first (mechanics) is what is happening when you look somebody eye to eye. Imagine if you will that (in this case) Leela is divided into several parallel planes, one above the eyeline and the rest below. As the planes get further from the eye line, more of it becomes visible. This is happening everywhere to everything you see. Even to the keyboard that your hands are probably hovering over.
So? You might ask.
The second (viewpoint) is how those same planes look from your point of view. See how the one at eye level is only a line segment? But as they are lower, they become more like ovals?
Oh, yeah, I tossed in a couple of extreme perspective bits. I used cones to define her basic shape.
What you need to be aware of is that as the view of Leela progresses down, you'll see more of the top of body parts (such as kneecaps, and tops of her feet).
The third (picasso-ie-ish) is the same pose but draw with blocks. The blocks are the same sizes as if I had used circles to draw her. Sometimes it's easier to see stuff like this is it's drawn blockie.
The fourth (isometric-e-ness) drawing is the exact same drawing on the same piece of paper. It’s just slightly reworked. Well, okay seriously reworked. I eventually erased and redrew everything. And it’s done completely free hand with no rulers, squares, nothing but a very tired eraser and pencil.
Alright, go for that aspirin now.
Now the silly bits:
Gulliver showed me a sketch of Kiff driving a ‘50’s hot rod.
Also based on another Gulliver sketch with “Framy” (from “Put Your Head on my Shoulders). I’m sure that in some other Parabox universe these actually happened.
