When you sketch an object, most of the time you can’t possibly draw the full set of Perspective:
- Horizon line
- Vanishing points
- Converging lines.
However, it’s SUPER ESSENTIAL to always keep in mind the perspective rules to make sure that your sketch is correct.
With practice, your brain will end visualising the converging lines intuitively. Make sure to train your perspective skills drawing many simple shapes such as cubes from different views.
VERY IMPORTANT: the converging lines are one of your Best friend !!
The lines looks parallel, but they are not. They slightly diverge. If one day, your sketch looks “awkward”, and you wonder why ? Check your converging lines. It will solve a lot of mistakes. Without them, you can’t possibly imagine to draw in “3D” from your imagination. So, each time you get to practice, visualise them or draw them with a light pressure with your pen.
Hint: as we can see the top of the razor head, it means the razor is below the Horizon line (also called the Eye level).
I did this sketch with the software Sketchbook Pro, with a Cintiq 22HD. If you also love sketching on tablet, I warmly recommend you guys to download that awesome and light drawing software (Free trial). Product and transport designers love it! The lines looks natural.
Note that you can get it in any platform”: Mac, Windows, Ipad, Android. The Samsung Pro note 12.2 include Sketchbook Pro by default.
