QUESTION for Lesson 2, Form Intersections Exercise: CAN I HAVE TOO MANY FORMS?

10:33 AM, Saturday August 20th 2022

I've finished the first page of Form Intersections from Lesson 2. I know Comfy said to fill the page up and fit as many forms as possible, but can you have too many forms? You can see page 1 here. I drew a lot of boxes and I'm wondering if I've got the density okay, or if I should lighten up for future pages; page 1 is pretty hectic and I haven't even attempted to add the intersections yet.

so from my experience of doing the excercise a few weeks ago and from the examples given on the website, i'd say, it's better to vary the sizes of the forms a bit and add around 8-10 (12 would be fine too) forms in a page. too many can be confusing and make things more difficult.

Okay, thanks for your feedback, Blue_Winters.

no worries.

PureRef

This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
