These are my first 20 rectilinear composition models.
Things I’ve learned so far:
- Each piece should be moving in its own axis. Pieces that are in the same axis take away from the appeal of the model as a whole.
- Waiting for the rubber cement to air out before sticking the pieces together creates a faster bond.
- Negative space should be taken into consideration when making each model.
- The dominant piece is not always the biggest piece.
- likewise, the subordinate piece is not always the smallest piece.
Second Set of Rectilinear Forms
What I’ve Learned:
- I have incorporated the use of wedging, cradling, and piercing throughout these twenty models.
- These jointing techniques are much more visually appealing than simply doing a butt joint.
- Varying the thickness of the foam is essential for distinguishing the subordinate, subdominant, and dominant forms.
