A Study in Perspective

1. Describe the process you went through to change your object into the correct perspective to create the drawing. This is when you were in the lab.
First we found our picture online, then, using Photoshop, we transform,ed the picture so it was more elongates and stretched-out b y the top, and skinnier and normal by the bottom. We printed it out, then drew a grid on both the printed picture, and the blank page. Then we put the printed picture, grid square by grid square, onto the paper, scaling the image to fit and create perspective. We used colored pencils to create shadows and shade in value, to make it look 3-D on the paper.

2. How did distorting and stretching the object allow for you to create a drawing that would look different to the viewer?
The picture created by the stretching created an anamorphosis picture by stretching it to make it look like you were looking at it in a different way than straight on. The shadows underneath added to the affect, and it made my anchor look like it was standing upright, off the paper.
 3. What were the most important concepts in the project to make it successful?
To stretch the picture over Photoshop the right way, to stretch it so that it was way wider than the bottom parts, then to create the grid and transfer the picture over just like it was in the printed picture. Finally, one of the other most vital parts was to create value and the correct shadow, to make it look like it's coming off the page.
