Question 1: What is Pictorial Space according to Le Corbusier? (Maximum 100 words) Le Corbusier mentioned that pictorial space is a space that cannot be entered or circulated, and can only be viewed from a distant perspective. Therefore, people’s perception of image space is totally limited to the foreground. Le Corbusier made it clear that the pictorial space limits the ability of an object to express its interdependence with other objects in the space.
Question 2: The Flatness of Le Corbusier’s painting’s are attributable to two properties. What are they? And what are these pitted against?(Maximum 100 words) These two attributes are pure extensions. In addition, these two features are related to textures and colors. Instead of using black to create depth and 3D space, he used white color pigments to display textures.
1ST MARIOâ€™S WORLD
For the first hand drawing, I found the most difficult part would be perspective. Many features are hidden behind the rest of the objects. I need to find out clearly where they are arranged. Moreover, in the process of painting, the T-shaped always slided and caused graphic errors. Finally, the angle of this operation is special, so I need enough space to transform the flat image into a three-dimensional object.
COMBINED MARIOâ€™S WORLD
For the whole structure, I add some features that not appear in the given pictures in order to make the world more abundance. In the beginning, I add some small features, it caused the space littery, so I changed them to bigger one. Furthermore, floating features can meke the whole picture more hierarchical. As the upper things are plantiful, I used a simple bottom. The idea of the bottom is from Apollo Temple.

Question 1: Explain the difference between Pictoral (in this case perspectival) space and Projection? (Maximum 100 words) The pictorial space is very limited in its creation because it is limited by materials such as canvas and paper. The concepts related to 3D space and human use of space capabilities cannot be fully created. Comparing pictorial space, projection trends build an unexisting view. In addition, it contains a limited space. While projection allows the designer to create an infinite space, the consistency between the pitch and projection of the image is not lost in the image
Question 2: Where did Axonometric projection first arise, and why? (Maximum 100 words)
Axonometric projections originally came from abstracts and first appeared in ancient visual practices. Their earliest recorded use was in the military context and was very successful due to their exact nature. Soon afterwards, he taught in engineering schools in the 18th and 19th centuries and was closely related to mechanization and industrialization. It is a relatively new concept of mapping real measurement results, not drawing.
ILLUSTRATED MARIOâ€™S NEW WORLD
Tracing and coloring may be the most difficult part of this work. I was not good at using illustrate, so I made many mistakes and had to work again. The curves are the hardest part, it was not easy to fit my original hand drawing. Additionally, color theme was also difficult to comfirm, for it should be based on the original picture and I add my own thoughts to make it more creative.
There are the instruments for me to drawing. They are tracing pad, T-square, 45 degree set square,pencil,rubber, adhesive spray and unipin fineline set.
This step is sticking the given Mario World and the tracing pad together to the 45 degree. It made it easy to make graphics one to one. I use T-square and set square to determine the location of each feature, and draw the 3-D model.
Drawing the section and bottom.
