Keys To Drawing With Imagination
Exercise 2 - Algorithms
There were a few choices of algorithms to choose from, I did start on the 'shape clusters' but found them mentally challenging in that I just couldn't think of shapes to cluster. I think the reason for this is that it was a concious decision and I am not good at making decisions, I get too technical...The shapes have to be related, look believable, acurate...Obviously, this particular algorithm brought the inner control freak alive and I decided to turn my attentions to a choice that involved less thought - 'Tangles'.
Exercise 3 - Building Blocks
In this exercise I was instructed to create several unbeliveable structures from building blocks, starting at the base just as if I were laying the bricks.
This was a more enjoyable exercise for me.
Exercise 4 - Shape Clusters
Arrrgh, just when I thought I had escaped them!
I decided to try not think about the actual shapes to get through this exercise but to think more about then even spaces I should leave between the shapes, this way the shapes formed by themselves.
