Not Completely Sure That I Get Convergence (250 Box Challenge)
4:42 AM, Thursday November 30th 2023
I've been making steady progress on the 250 box challenge (~box 95), but as I've progressed, I've been unable to shake the feeling that I don't really get how to get my lines to converge. I understand converging lines in theory; as parallel lines go back in perspective, they meet at the vanishing point. What I'm struggling with is actually getting the convergence rates right. First, I tried to eyeball it, but I'm not great at judging convergence with just my eyes yet. After that, I tried tracing my finger back to about where I believed the lines would converge. While that is generally more accurate, it's pretty tedious and it doesn't work very well on sets of lines that converge slowly. Does anyone have any tips for judging the speed at which parallel lines will converge in perspective, or is it one of those things you just get better at by doing a bunch?
