Perspective revision

Just revisiting the perspective theory around ellipses. So the crucial things are:

  • Decide on a horizon line and the vanishing point.
  • Make sure you know where the centre line is throught the object.
  • Make sure the ellipses are equal on both sides and the peak of the curve on either side horizontally aligns.
  • Remember you see more of the front half of the ellipse than the further half.
  • The curve will get flatter the closer it gets to the eye line.
