OBLIQUE SKETCHES. The front face or view of an OBLIQUE SKETCH is drawn the same way as an orthographic front view. Using the same wooden block that was sketched

Figure 5-70.-Basic isometric forms.

isometrically for a model, you should draw an oblique sketch following the basic steps shown in figure 5-69, view B.

The first step is to draw a rectangle of the front view (using light lines). Then, second, draw an oblique base line at a 45-degree angle starting at the corner (intersection) of the horizontal and vertical base lines. Third, sketch the remaining horizontal and vertical lines parallel to the other base lines. Fourth, erase any unnecessary lines, and fifth, dimension and darken the completed drawing for easier reading. Remember, place the dimensions so they are parallel to the axis lines. The final step is to check the sketch for completeness and accuracy.

In the above procedures for development of pictorial sketches, a simple rectangular form was used. All objects may be simplified to their basic geometric forms. These forms are the first consideration in the pictorial sketch. Basic volumetric forms are shown in figure 5-70. By carefully analyzing any object you sketch, you will see one or more of the forms shown in figure 5-70. However, at times only a part of a form is present.

Before attempting detailed sketches, practice sketching the basic forms. Then look for these forms in the object you are about to sketch, and concentrate on the basic form representation. Enclose the object in a basic form, or build it up with a series of different forms, depending on the nature of the object. Details are added or "carved" from these forms after shape and proportion have been determined.
