The Semantics of 3D Form

  • see and translate natural and human-made forms through various mediums
  • develop 3D forms which have meaning and are aesthetically balanced and composed
  • stances
  • correcting angles
  • roundness of shell
  • work with 1 planar view at a time
  • checking different angles
  • shell termination(tendriles, tail, etc.)
  • top view(push the ridge up)
  • blending of the spikes(flatter/wider)-use bone folder-narrow squares
  • add more clay to the overhang(think tube of clay to give illusion of depth
  • cold plasticine is slightly easier to work with(holds form better)
