The Fairy Godmother waved her hand and a mirror appeared. Cinderella gasped. There in the reflection - standing in the same disordered kitchen, among the drying laundry and dirty pots and pans - was the most beautiful princess she had ever seen. Could it really be her?
My final project for one of my classes was to illustrate the above passage in two-point perspective. Here's how it worked. First I did a little sketch of my idea:
After getting some feedback from my professor, I laid out a two-point grid and started constructing the scene on top.
Next I drew the line art on top of my grid constructions.
After getting more feedback from professor and classmates, I started adding shadows. I established the top of the magic mirror as the main light source, and used measurements to establish where the shadows would be.
Then I just sort of experimented with the colors and textures until I got something that worked. And that's the finished image.
My professor really, really liked it, and I am quite proud of that, because he is notoriously difficult to impress. I'm looking forward to doing another Cinderella illustration soon.
