So, here is the question,

Ques. A caterpillar is sitting in the basket of a vegetable vendor. The vendor is sitting on a pavement waiting for daily buyers with the basket placed on the floor. Draw the view of the caterpillar in the space provided and render in pencil.

 

From the question, we can ascertain that this is neither a 1 point nor a 2 point perspective.

The student has to imagine the view from a caterpillar’s point of view

It’s more of an ants eye view.

 

But what makes it more difficult, is the fact that the setting is in the open, rather than the interiors.

Also there are close to no constituents in the question which resemble a geometric shape or form.

So taking a vanishing point will also not help here.

 

The most important thing to keep in mind while answering this question is the accuracy of the perspective.

Since there are no grids, nor any guidelines to help you in this case, the students have to fully rely on their observation and memory to compose the drawing.

 

For this question, we are featuring three different attempts of varying qualities.

I’ll be analyzing the answers on 7 parameters, which includes:

  • Composition
  • Accuracy of Perspective
  • Rendering Skills
  • Proportions
  • Neatness
  • Creativity
  • Innovation

 

Let’s move to the first attempt

And let me provide you with the feedback

 

Option I

 

The first attempt looks amazing.

It’s well composed and beautifully rendered.

 

The perspective view is accurate.

Apart from little mismatch in vegetable proportions, I don’t have much to complain.

 

 

OPTION II

 

When we come to the second attempt here, we can see some serious problems, especially with proportions:

  • The proportion of the hand to this vegetable, which is most probably a carrot, is not correct.
  • Secondly, in the background, we can see a partial human figure standing next to this house, but the door of the house is shown, even smaller to this human figure.

The above two are the most glaring mistakes in the drawing, which will take away most of the marks.

Apart from this, the drawing is just average or less than average in terms of composition, details, drawing quality and other factors.

 

 

OPTION III

Now, we come to the third drawing.

Here, we can see a lot of problems:

  • First of all the drawing is incomplete in terms of background, vegetable basket and the human figures.
  • The vegetables are scanty. Assuming the vendor is there to sell, there should be at least a few kg of vegetables in the basket.
  • The third and the biggest mistakes that will take away majority of marks from the drawing is the inaccuracy of the perspective. As you can see the basket is shown from a top view, as if the caterpillar is somewhere above the basket and not sitting inside it.
  • The vegetables look more 2 Dimensional similar to paper cutouts.

The student will not receive passing marks in the above question.

That’s all we have in this article
