Let's practice identifying modeling factors!
- The project files
- Either a printer and colored pencils
- Or your favorite image editing application such as Photoshop
- Decide whether you'll do this assignment digitally or traditionally, and download the project files.
If you do it traditionally, you'll draw on the printout.
- Identify and label all modeling factors by drawing an outline for each of them and coloring in the area. For "Ambient Light Intensity", estimate a percentage. 0% is no ambient light at all, 100% is extreme ambient light Intensity.
- Upload your labeled image.
This project should take 30–60 minutes to complete. Start with the sphere and if you want to challenge yourself, do the monkey afterward.
