PROPORTIONS: Identifying the Ideal Solids

Dylan Murdoch

Emma O'keefe
Last night we discussed Proportions and the measuring technique called "sighting". The first thing to consider when addressing the proportions of things is style and genre. The proportions for cartoon characters is very different than the those of realistic or even idealized proportions. That said, our objective was to develope accurate proportions of the still life objects. Dylan's drawing (top) effectively relates and compares the various parts of the vase. Notice his use of vertical lines enclosing the negative space. Emma's drawing (bottom) reveals a sphere located within the structure of the pitcher. Locating and rendering the ideal solids will increase your drawing speed, because they are easier to draw, and strengthen the volume because they help define structure and placement of values.
