Hand Motion Drawings
My motion is an upward motion that includes dramatic finger movements and wrist twisting.
Animal Skin Patterns
The two animals I did for pattern research were pangolin and fugu, blowfish.
I elaborated on pangolin’s scale pattern and created some sketches of how the glove will look like.
Once I got a final design of my glove, I mapped each part of the glove on a photo of my hand in Illustrator.
Paper cut Trials
I tried out different paper fold techniques and different ways to connect papers together.
The Process of Making
The process was frustrating at first, but I found out an easier and more stable way to connect my paper scales after trying lots of different connecting methods.
