Hi! So for our very first project of 3D class, we learnt about rectilinear volume which consist of Dominant, Sub-dominant and Subordinate.
To put it simply, the Dominant volume (D) is the largest element of the object, the Sub-Dominant volume (SD) is the one that complements the dominant while the Subordinate (SO) is an interesting part that complete the whole design.
Then we all have to make 3 models from foam which each consist of one D, one SD and one SO. Follow are my 3 models:
For my Model 1, the SD is wedged to the D while the SO is pierced through the SD. It looks long and thick with a very very tiny SO, which is quite hard to see from far. However it is solid and able to be stand firmly.
Sketch analysis of Model 1:
To conclude, my Model 1 looks like a typical model for D, SD, SO which make it not so interesting and quite boring!
My Model 2 has the SD wedged to D and SO pierced through SD. It has a long, wide and thin shape. It consist of thin parts which makes it looks skinny in a way. This model cannot easily stand vertically like side A and side B. And when it does, the wide area of side A makes it topple easily when there is wind.
Sketch analysis of Model 2:
My Model 2 looks much more weighty and solid in the corrected sketch, I guess it is much more stable and sturdy (won’t topple as easily yeay)! Hence I think it can be more useful compared to before.
In my Model 3, SO is wedged to D and pierced through SD (cradling). Both D and SD have short and thick blocks, making it looks small, chunky and closely-packed. However it is really stable and firm.
Sketch analysis of Model 3:
My Model 3 looks really transformed after the improvement! It looks fresher and more mature somehow. The longer D and SD make it looks bigger and more sturdy. While the shifting of SD and SO making the model less compact and have more negative space. I decided to choose this as my final model!
