[3D] My interesting earring

  Laying Down The Fundamentals (ノ´ヮ`)ノ*: ・゚  

In our first class, we learnt about the Dominant (D), Subdominant (SD), and the Subordinate (SO). We are asked to bring along an interesting 3D object, and we discussed some of them in class.

Here’s my object, one of my favorite earrings. (Excuse the fingernails, I was painting beforehand).

We also learnt about some design principles, such as proportion, symmetry, and texture, as well as finishes, opacity, mass and voids, and how all these affect the viewer’s visual experience.

It’s gold in color throughout, hence the identification of the dominant, subdominant and subordinate was wholly dependent on the sizes of the parts relative to one another. The rule of thirds is also reflected in the lengths of the dominant and subdominant.

We also learned about the Gestalt principle in the second lesson, where my earring was used as an example to show how the individual rectilinear volumes in the dominant make up the overall shape.

It was a fun start to the module! ٩(◕‿◕。)۶
