Spidey in Three Point by Hoabert Spidey in Three Point by Hoabert
This was a three point perspective study with Spider-Man. I did it for a technical drawing class. It started with a design of a city corner done in orthographic top view, then it was translated into 3 point using some insane translation method with lots of rulers compases and paper. Then I drew/translated the buildings into perspective. After that I designed several different super heroes to go over the picture on layout paper. After getting the Spider-Man pose I wanted (in the middle of art history, when I should've been taking notes), I put graphite on the back of my building sheet and transfered them to a fresh sheet, and did the same with my spidey pose. I then copied it at kinkos onto a decent quality paper that I colored on with Tria markers.

Today In photoshop I croped the image so that it would print on a 11.7" x 16.5 (A3) epson paper for my friend's bday. I also masked out Spidey and desaturated/tweaked the background a bit, as well as change the color of the roof that was originally red and confusing by spidey's left foot, and the coloring on the buildings on the left.

*edit* wow I just noticed the lighting is way off on the building behind spidey (it's lit from the left...) but I"m too sleepy to fix it now... will fix in morning....

CUrse you! Your station point seems to high. Or something. Well, technically you can have infinite station points, but maybe we are too close to the cone of detail. I like spidey's pose, but his left leg seems a bit broken, maybe pull it in more or more foreshortening.

That 3 point was from one of those deals where you take an actual orthographic and use some crazy calculations to trainslate it to scale in 3D.. but I didn't have enough room to put my vanishing points at appropriate spots off the page (I was taping paper onto the desk but ran out of deskspace!). And I haven't noticed the leg being broken, but the head definitely is... (don't tell anyone!)

This looks slick. I still need to work on ym 3 point perspective, any tips?

Thanks. I haven't done that many 3 point pictures, but I can say that if you want a fish eye disorienting sorta feel then keep the vanishing points closer together, if you want it to feel more natural then keep the further apart (sometimes this means taping down extra sheets of paper on your desk).
