In Project 002, we would have to open up our ‘designer eyes’ a little more and to take note of diagonal axes and curved surfaces apart from just recognising D, SD and SO. In a short span of 2 weeks, we are to create a composition using 3 different volumes of varying sizes: *cones*, *spheres* and *cylinders* ðŸ™‚

**2D SKETCH ANALYSIS**

3D Sketch Model #1 Â Â **[Over The Top]**

SM 1 helps me to see that the axes of the volumes are diagonal and non-clashing (no parallel/perpendicular axes).

Length of **SD** is 2/3 of **D**, length of **SO** is 1/3 of **SD**.

Diameter of **SD** is less than 1/3 of** D**, diameter of **SO** is about 1/3 of **SD**.

Proportions are okay, so I proceeded with my model to produce this final model!

3D Sketch Model #2 Â Â **[Coney Island]**

SM 2 shows that theÂ **SDÂ **was slightly too long in its length and diameter, as it was almost similar to those of theÂ **DÂ **(the cone). From the analysis, I edited my thin cylindrical plate (**SD**) smaller in diameter, Â for its length to be 2/3 of **D**,Â and also to adjust the angle in which theÂ **D** pierces throughÂ **SD**.

TheÂ **SO** was originally too small instead, and theÂ **SD** could block viewers from seeing theÂ **SOÂ **at certain angles. Therefore, I changed theÂ **SOÂ **to be just slightly larger.

After amendments, this is the second sketch model derived from the sketch and edits:

3D Sketch Model #3 Â Â **[Ice-cream Man]**

SM 3 shows the arrangement of the axes of the 3 volumes.

I initially decided the cone to be theÂ **DÂ **and then the sphere to beÂ **SD**, followed by the cylinder to be theÂ **SO.Â **Yet upon looking at the arrangement from the 2D analysis, it looks really plain and common and lacks an interesting point to the composition.Â Also, the length of the cone is close to that of the sphere.

Hence, I decided to switch the roles of the volumes to: sphere asÂ **D**, cone as **SD** and cylinder as **SO**. The shapes were plainly stacked up in the original arrangement, so I also made a change to pierce the **SO** through the **SD** to give the final look like this.

**In Conclusion**

I picked *Sketch Model #1 [Over The Top]Â *as my final workpiece to apply textures and plausible functions to it. Details are presented in the PDF document uploaded to google docs ðŸ™‚

Interesting themes for your 3 Sketch Models. Noticed not much development between your 3D Sketch Model and the Final Model though. In terms of a ‘Final Model’ it was not quite of ‘exhibit quality’.

Innovative application.
