Shape Composition with Mike Mattesi
it would be super helpful to have an assignment for this like mike mentioned his students doing, is there anywhere we can find that?
A great reading about those topics is actually the book “picture this” by the Molly Bang which I am reading again triggered by this section of the course
If there are more detailed courses on improving shape design and composition, I will definitely sign up.
The Death Star is pretty interesting. It's a base so a "friendly" place to the empire's troops, while at the same time looking grey and lifeless. It's clearly a military contraption being effective in design and having no unnecessary artistic flair. It's also indestructible unless you hit a very specific spot, so it's about as stable a construction as it can be. The circular shape fits very well in this case. When it fires its laser. The beams converge into a point creating multiple triangles or, when looking at the general shape, a neon green tip that protrudes from the grey circular shape. Since it destroys planets, it's as aggressive as it can be. Funny how simple old Star Wars is in its designs.
