    How to Draw 1-Point Perspective: Train Tracks, Train and Platform: Narrated

    November 4, 2019


    Hi, Tom here, in this week’s video I’ll
    show you one way to draw a train track and a train in one point perspective,
    first draw a horizontal line across the middle of your page, this is the horizon
    line, the height of the eye of the viewer in one-point perspective, next draw a
    cross in the center of this line and this will be the vanishing point, the
    vanishing point is the point where parallel lines, that are going away from us,
    will look that they meet, next draw two diagonal lines to the left for the rails
    of the train track, now draw a series of horizontal lines
    with bigger gaps as they get closer to us, we now have our first train track in
    one-point perspective, we can now draw another
    train track to the left, in the same way as the first train track, draw two track
    rails and then we can copy some of the sleepers or ties from the first train
    track to the new track, just sort of reading them across from the right to
    the left, next draw two vertical lines from one of
    the train track ties, this will be for the front of the train, I would make the
    top vertical line for the train higher than the horizon line, so it goes up, now we can erase the horizon line here,
    as we need the train to be in front of the horizon,
    therefore the horizon is not necessary in this point, next we can add some basic shapes to the
    front of the train engine, again using the vanishing point to find all of the
    side lines that are going away from us, this train is based on an Indian engine
    and it has quite a box-like shape, but you could design your own engine
    front for your own train, now we can divide the back lines of the
    train into a series of carriages, basically draw a gap between two
    carriages several times, a vertical line with a curve, and these gaps get smaller and closer
    together as they recede from us, going towards the vanishing point, we could divide the side of the train into a
    series of windows and add some small details to the train engine too, we need some space for the wheels, but
    the wheels are not very visible, you can just imply them,
    they’re sort of hidden, next we can add more detail to the train, and then once you’re ready and you’ve
    got as much detail as you would like, we could add some tone, you could add some tonal values, for this drawing I’m going to have the sun, the light source, on the
    left, although I’m not going to draw the sun, but that’s the direction of the
    light, which means the shadows will be going towards the right, remember to leave a gap between each
    shadow of each train carriage or car and that should work quite well, now we can
    draw another train on the right, this time I’ll make it so the train is near
    us, but we start with a diagonal line from the vanishing point again, because
    all of these train tracks are parallel to each other and they’re all going away
    from us and we’re looking straight ahead into the centre of the picture, we can read across the size of the train
    from the first train, so in perspective if something isn’t further away or
    closer by, but is just side by side, we can just read that across with a
    horizontal line at the base, in one-point perspective, if something,
    for example a train carriage, is a certain height, we can copy that height
    to another part of the picture, just by moving it left or right, but if something
    becomes closer, we need to make it bigger, and then if it’s further away, clearly it
    needs to get smaller and we do that by using the vanishing point as our guide
    lines and drawing two lines from the vanishing point, two diagonal lines, to the
    top and bottom of the height of the thing that we’re doing and then anything
    that wants to be the same height, as long as it’s between those two diagonal lines,
    will be in perspective in this drawing I’ll make the tonal values quite strong on the train, we could shade in these gaps between the
    carriages on the right, to add a door remember the vertical
    sides of the door or any vertical lines need to be, they need to stay vertical
    and not lean to the left or the right, so I tend to look at the edge of the paper
    or another vertical line that’s already in the drawing and just copy that
    vertical line, the next stage in this drawing
    to add some windows to the train as these windows on the right of closer
    than the windows on left we could add a little bit more detail to them, we could
    add some shadows inside the windows and maybe some bars on the windows too, you could add some darker tonal values to the train if you want, as I want this drawing to look like it’s a very light and bright day, I need to make the areas of the shadow quite dark, next we can add some people to the platform, the train platform, which is a triangular shape
    between the trains, first read across their height
    horizontally from the train door, that would be useful, in this way we can be
    confident that the first person that we draw, if they walked to the train, if they
    didn’t walk towards us and didn’t walk away, but just walked directly towards
    the train door, they would sort of fit in the door, there’d be the right proportion
    to fit in the door, I will draw three people I think wearing
    clothes of draped fabric, as the light is on the left we can add some shadows on
    the right, some cast shadows on the right, once you have the first people we can draw more people further away, first draw
    a line from the feet and head of the first person that you have already drawn
    and draw these two lines, these diagonal lines all the way to our vanishing point on
    the horizon, any person will be in perspective with the first person, if they
    are between these two diagonal lines, that’s the easiest way to find out how
    to draw people in perspective, once you have some people
    train platform we could draw a vertical structure, a column, in the middle of our
    drawing, in the middle of the platform, for this column we could make some
    structural shapes towards the top of the column, to hold up a roof above the
    platform, so once you have some structural shapes, for this drawing I’m
    just going to draw some triangles and circles and make them symmetrical so the same on left and the right, then we could use our vanishing point to
    find the edges of the platform roof, again, because it’s in parallel to all of
    the other lines which are in parallel to us, again we could add some structural
    lines to the platform roof and then for my drawing I will shade in
    and make it quite dark, for this drawing I’m using a 4b pencil, there are many
    ways to draw, if you’d like to be the first to know about my online drawing
    courses please visit my website www.circlelineartschool.com and sign up to my email list
    and then you’ll be the first to know about the new courses that I make, for
    this drawing I think I’ll add a shadow cast from the platform roof onto the
    platform, which is below, but because the lights coming from the left I’ll shift
    the shadow towards the right and put the shadow on
    the side of the Train on the right as well, I hope you like this video and find it
    useful for your own drawings, if so please leave a comment and suggest what drawings you’d like to see next, I read all the comments I receive, thank you very much for your support:) keep drawing and see you next time with
    another drawing challenge!

    Bernie Sends Protesting Miners Pizza

    August 27, 2019


    >>There’s another promise that is deeply
    important to me. And I know it is deeply important to you. We are going to put our coal miners back to
    work. Wrong, that is not what happened. In fact, more coal miners have lost their
    jobs under Donald Trump’s watch. And one example of that, we covered it earlier
    on this show, is Blackjewel. This is a coal mining company that recently
    went bankrupt, leaving its workers unpaid. And so as a result, these coal miners are
    protesting because they want their pay. They did the job, they deserve the pay. And just to give you an idea, they have yet
    to pay over $4.5 million in back pay to their workers, okay? Now, with that said, they’re protesting, and
    one of the ways that they’re doing it is by blocking a train track, which sounds very
    dangerous. But hopefully, they’re staying safe while
    they’re making a point about how they deserve to get paid for the work that they’ve done. And something really nice that Bernie Sanders
    did, he sent them some pizza. So local news reporter Sydney Boles posted
    that photo of Pizza Hut boxes. The Vermont senator and Democratic presidential
    candidate called the local Pizza Hut Friday and sent a pie, or several pies as you can
    see from that photo, to the miners for each day they’ve been blocking a train full of
    over 1 million in coal from their former employer, Blackjewel, according to local NBC affiliate. So I love that he is paying attention and
    he is trying to do something, anything to help. So a couple of important things here. So why are they blocking train tracks? Obviously, they’re owed $4.5 million. Not only were they fired, they said, we’re
    not paying for the two weeks that you worked already. It’s an absolute outrage. They know that if they go to bankruptcy court,
    rich people are gonna get paid first, they’re gonna get paid last. So they’re like, well, no, I want you to sell
    this coal and pay us, and not your other creditors, cuz we know we’re gonna get screwed. We’re at the bottom of the totem pole, we
    don’t have any power. So they’re trying to use whatever little power
    that they have. Now, by the way, truckers have started showing
    up to back up the coal miners. I love that. And Republicans, they’re protesters standing
    in front of a vehicle. In the past, Republicans, including legislators
    in the Dakotas, have said, you should be able to run over protesters in the way of vehicles. So I wonder if the Republicans are gonna be
    in favor of running over coal miners. Are you kidding me? They’ll steam roll anyone, I mean, including
    Republican protesters, which is why, look, I get that we’re very divided, we’re in a
    very difficult time in America. But at the same time, I think it’s important
    to protect constitutional rights regardless of what your political ideology is. Because if you think it’s okay for people
    to run over left-wing protesters, you think they’re not gonna come for you? They’re gonna come for you. Yeah, now I wanna talk about two of the people
    that are missing in action. So Bernie Sanders is with the coal miners. And Governor Matt Bevin, who I can’t stand,
    a right-wing Republican, at least has enough common sense to say that he supports the coal
    miners. Amy McGrath, running against Mitch McConnell,
    has gone out there and supported the coal miners. Now if you’re running in Kentucky, all of
    this makes sense, right? Mitch McConnell, hidden in his shell, doesn’t
    give a damn about the coal miners. All that talk about the coal miners? No, it’s the coal mine owners that Mitch McConnell
    cares about. Now that the miners are pitted against the
    owners, which side is Mitch McConnell on? Of course, the owners. He never cared about the workers. He used you as a tool, a gag, a prop, while
    he took money in campaign donations from the owners. So now, while other politicians who actually
    care or are even savvy enough to pretend to care, McConnell is like, nope, my donors are
    on the other side, run them over. Now, to be fair, he didn’t say run them over,
    but he’s totally missing in action. Definitely, he’s abandoned them. I mean, not that he’s ever really fought for
    them to begin with. Of course. But they’re always used as props by Republicans
    when it suits them, when it’s convenient for them and when it can help them politically. Otherwise, they’re left high and dry, unpaid
    for work that they’ve already done. School is about to start, these families need
    to have the resources to send their kids to school. Yeah. It’s disgusting, what’s happening to them. Last person missing in action, of course,
    Donald Trump. Now, think about it, guys. How easy is it for Trump, even if he doesn’t
    mean it, to go down there, and if he stood on the tracks with the workers, it’d be a
    giant political win for him. But he doesn’t care enough to do it. And remember, his donors are not the workers,
    they’re the owners of the companies. So the easiest political lay up of all time,
    and he won’t do it cuz he never cared about the workers. The Republicans, they never, look, progressives
    run on higher wages, higher wages! It’s built into their platform that they care
    about the workers. The Republicans, they talk about using you
    as a talking point. But at the end of the day, they never have
    your back. And the proof is right here, right in front
    of you. If you’re interested in helping these coal
    miners, a lot of them are in financial trouble because of what happened to them. There is a GoFundMe page set up for them. Just go to tinyurl.com/supportminers. tinyurl.com/supportminers. Now look, for example, real quick. West Virginia and Kentucky voted overwhelmingly
    for Donald Trump. If a progressive wins, are we gonna do the
    same thing Trump did, where he raised taxes on blue states, to punish people who voted
    against him? Hell no, we’re gonna raise the wages of coal
    miners. We’re gonna raise the wages in West Virginia
    and Kentucky, cuz we actually care about all Americans. Because if you’re not wedded to the donors
    and to the corporations, then what are you doing? You’re running to help Americans. And then the great thing about the Warrens
    and the Sanders and the AOCs, etc., is, they don’t take any corporate PAC money. So they don’t have to work for the corporations,
    they can actually care about the average American voter. It’s so easy if you just see what their actions
    are.
