really brings home how effective the photo background is for presenting the idea. Almost which is real and which is sketchup :)

How about a couple of tables?

The one in the foreground is from Italy, c. 1950. The one in the back is from Austria, c 1929.

Those are amazing, dave.

Make's my effort of a pagoda roof on Roger's post, positively naive in comparison!

Thank you Malcolm.

I saw your drawings and they look like they did the job. Who could ask for more?

That's kind of you to say, but, as I said, naive.

Nice drawing Dave - I like the Austrian one, not sure about the other.

The chairs and sideboard not my taste.

Interesting. The table and chairs are a set from the same designer. In fact they share some of the same parts.

The chairs look uncomfortable. My preference is better seat padding and a higher back.

In a minimalist house should go well but hopefully more comfortable than they look.

Am I the only one who can't tell the difference between your drawings and a photograph? :)

if images are not visible on my posts it is because Photobucket withdrew their free hosting service. I will reload images to the most recent threads in due course. Please drop me a PM if you would like to see anything before then

How about a chair kit?

Or, for those who like to tinker...

I did the second one while I was waiting for a guy to get online for a tutoring session after he asked me about how to draw the spools with the holes around the perimeter.

Like the airfix kit chair :)

Next time I draw something I must have a play with lighting the scene. The shadows add a lot to the depth perception.

edit
Actually, now I look again... do the shadows match for the chair and the parts? directions look different. Still effective though.

Hi Robert.

The shadows do indeed match. Both the assembled chair and the parts on the tree are in the same model space. :)

Nicely drawn Dave but it looks a bit like a trestle table to me.

Thanks gentlemen.

Rod, it is a trestle table except its got four splayed, tapered legs. I guess that's the way the Italians made trestle tables back in the 50s. :D
