My mother glasses.
Well, it happened that I had a lot of trouble with the administrator who ignores about this technique. I defended my point of view and explained a lot of things about it but his pride as administrator was too big to let him accept he declined my work not because it was bad but because he was ignorant about these kinds of drawings. At the end I was reported by him and his 2 friend by harassment. Who can believe this? Though, some peculiarities in the language of the 3 make me think that they are the same person and he occupies 2 places as administrator of the same group. It is very sad since I am making these 3D drawings just for fun. In special, in the 3D drawing of the cup, many persons made very funny and intelligent comments. It was real fun. Cortázar, an Argentine writer said that Art is a game and that a novel does not exist until someone plays with the writer the game by reading it. I think it is the same here. 3D images donīt exist until someone watches them. Thatīs why I love all the persons who kindly watch my 3D drawings and all my works in general. :hug: s all of you.
Talking about this drawing, I accepted on the one of the marbles that it was a kind of mistake choosing an object that has and ideal shape in our minds. Besides, I think it was a kind of mistake using multiple objects. But I watched the works of the greatest anamorphists and I found the same happens to them. Unless the sphere is just on the center of the image, it will look always as an oval. So, I think, there is nothing I can do about it.
By the way, as I said in my first 3D drawing it took me about 2 years to understand the basic idea of this technique so I hope many may forgive me for being jealous about the secret. I donīt want to say much about it but it is necessary to say that for my 3 first 3D drawings I used a technique and that for this one and the one of the marbles I used 2, let us call them, tools. Yet, I made the drawings in the same way I made portraits. I mean, I used the tools in a stage previous to the drawing and not to edit the image in any way but the usual to make the image clearer of darker and so on.
IMechanical pencil HB and graphite pencils 4H and 7H on opalina A4 aprox.

Very nice sir, I tried to do such drawings and I think I got the basic concept understood well, whatever the "tool" :) anyone uses it is about drawing a distorted image then viewing it from the correct angle.

Distorted in what way ? Well, place an object within the visual boundaries of a paper from a stationary point of view ( not moving head or using a camera on a tripod ), you only need to think of the object as a projected image from your eyes ( or from the camera ), and around each border try to find where the imaginary line - that comes out of your eye and crosses the border - hits the paper.

You need to have proper understanding of vanishing points and perspective in general.

The process of self-learning is a lot of fun, carmenharada would agree too :D

Great Job again, just felt it is nice to let people know where to learn from, it's not a secret but it's that one should figure it out himself.
