Things are heating up. :)

Things are heating up in the real world, too. I'm in the last two weeks of the semester before finals. Too, much studying to do and not enough time. Additionally, a week after finals I head out to the middle of nowhere for close to a month. I've never been camping before but I'm really looking forward to spending a lot of time away from everything. I'm just hoping I don't run into any bears, mountain lions, or rattle snakes, but it is mostly the bears I worry about.

Bjorn's got several decades worth of experience backing him up and a giant power boost. Ordinarily he wouldn't be able to do anything near this magnitude.

Glad you like the page! XD

Oh great page Zartala!

I promised I'd share how I taught myself perspective.

First you need a light table (or a reasonable facsimile) and a b&w printer.

All I did was decide to reverse engineer the perspective of photos of farms homes and cityscapes etc. I put the picture on the light table and then go through the exercise of using a ruler and a pencil find the different angled lines by lining up doors, walls and windows and such. I was looking mostly for two things; the vanishing point, and the horizon line. I would trace these lines on a separate piece of paper. On this paper I would go to my drawing area and attempt to recreat the picture I used by using the perspective lines I found.

I've been soldiering for the last 32 years, I have a lot of experience camping. If you are camping with a group of people, the likely hood of animals coming around not very high. If you want to avoid animals snooping around you at night, make sure that you sleep away from your food and snacks. Hang your food in a bag from a tree away from your sleeping area at night. Don't sleep on the ground without a foamy or air mattress. The ground will suck the warmth out of your body, and make you so cold you can't get a good sleep.

You'll be fine. Oh! Make sure you get a chance to look at the sky at night. It's so beautiful at night!!

Have a fun and safe trip!

That's a really cool way to learn perspective! Thanks so much for sharing! I don't have a light box but I think I can replicate your technique on my computer.

What's the likely hood of encountering an animal when only around one other person? From what I know of the class, students are paired up and sent off into the wilderness during the day to get measurements and what not.

The sky. I completely forgot that I'll be able to actually see stars. I'm so looking forward to camping.

Also, I didn't know that about the ground. I've never been camping before and didn't think about the benefits of a mattress. All I have is a sleeping bag at the moment. I'll need to add a mattress to my supply list.

Thanks again for sharing! :)

Even if there is just two of you, so long as you're talking and making the normal sounds that come with work and moving around, you should be giving the poor animals plenty of warning to stay clear of you. Which is what they prefer.
