Sketch models and masking tape ヽ(・∀・)ﾉ
For our first lesson, I worked with the cardboard boxes.
I found it pretty therapeutic, being able to use that much masking tape at one go. I felt like the world’s most proficient tape-tearer at the end of the lesson.
Anyway, I ended up creating three preliminary models with my assortment of cereal boxes, contact lens boxes, and milk carton boxes scavenged from the supermarket near my hall.
I also got my word – XYZ-Axis. Honestly, I was super stuck on where to start (っ˘̩╭╮˘̩)っ I told myself to keep calm and work through the word, though.
The first thing that popped into my head, was maths – more specifically, vectors, a topic I had to do in Junior College. The XYZ-Axis, to me, are very stable: they help me place points on a plane and understand what a vector looks like. They are always reliable when you start doing a vectors question.
Even though the task required us only to have the D, SD and SO be clear from 4 out of 6 angles, I thought about how the axises don’t change no matter what, no matter how u could rotate a model (or how you do a vectors question), and decided to take it as a personal challenge to have my D, SD and SO be clear from all of the 6 views – like the XYZ-Axis: constant and never changing.
