2-D Sketch: This is a 2-D sketch I did of a figure with a parabolic curve. I did this on a smaller scale first and then made it into an 18 X 24 drawing using tri-color tone colored pencils and a 2H pencil.
Bringing the 2-D drawing to a 3-D model: I first taped the wood sticks together and played around with the shape using tape to link the sticks together. After a few tries at modeling the 2-d drawing, I finally created a successful model. To put my first model together, I used wire. For the final model, I chose to use brads and a hammer to join the model together. For the final step, I added a base that enhanced the 3-d and parabolic curve effect of the figure.
