is scott robertsons method of building forms useful or is it a bullshit overly complex waste of time for anyone not going into industrial design
seriously going through his videos makes me want to find him and shove his ellipse guides up his ass
Once you know how to do this shit it makes eyeballing perspective on objects easier. Usually draw cross sections when I'm sketching so it works, but I tend to skip most of the extreme perspective measurement. Doing it was helpful in the long run, though.
You don't have to use the whole procedure for every little drawing. All his exercises teaches you one main thing:
The ability to eye ball the convergence of paralell lines in perspective. When you can do that to a reasonable degree, construction becomes so much easier even when you're drawing figures and other organic forms.
With that said, it really helps to practice all the steps. It teaches you how to thing spatially on paper.
You're a scrub for not being excited at all the tools he gives you for modelling form correctly.
But yeah, if you don't like drawing inorganic stuff like cars, robots, spaceships in perspective, guess what? You don't have to.
Unless you live in best Korea, then maybe you do if the govt says so.
