Lesson 6: Applying Construction to Everyday Objects
3:43 PM, Wednesday January 13th 2021
There's 3 objects which I specifically want to talk about.
the gaming mouse: It's a experiment of constructing by using 3d curves in perspective. It turned out to be a total mess and I completly lost myself in all the clutter. The proportion turned out to be a fail, too. In fact, when I think about it now, it would definitely be better if I used the ortho method.
the mild jug: the initial box was a bad one. It was supposed to be a square for the top face and the bottom face, but as the construction went on, I quickly discovered that it was far from that. Also, the method I choosed to simplify the structure turned out to be pretty dumb. Orthos would be a better choice on this, too.
the lantern: the initial box was a also a bad one. The vp on the left side is signifigantly higher than the right one, which made the box not really a box. So when I moved on to the ellipses and the hexegon, things very quickly fell apart.
I think the keycap was my best construction. The black rectangle behind the charger was supposed to make the object more popped to the foreground, which turned out to be a bad choice, it hide a fair amount of construction in the right side.
For the form intersection, although things started to pop a bit in the third page, the first two pages are petty bad, I'm doing these in my warmups to try to understand them better.
That's all of what I want to say. Thanks in advance for the critique!
