Perspective in a Pumpkin

Remember Cezanne's three basic shapes?

  1. Square
  2. Triangle
  3. Circle

When we add a 3rd dimension (depth) to these shapes we get:

  1. Cube
  2. Cone
  3. Sphere

This video shows us how to realistically place eyes and a mouth on a pumpkin, and rotate it in any direction.

A fantastic video from the master of perspective - Marshall Vandruff. This is the guy I talk about in most classes who teaches perspective with chalk and a blackboard.
