These were the 2 sketches I came up with.
After consultation I realised I was too ambitious. So I changed my design into something more minimalist and simple. I’d like to think of it as a dragon’s egg.
I started with a small scale prototype.
The stand looks really extra so for my full scale model, I decided to take the stand out. Also, taking out the stand made it look more like a dragon egg.
Made the base have rounded corners, to complement the gentle curves of the egg. Also made a slight dent so that the round base of the egg sits nicely.
