3-D Abstract Head
Last year, I was in a 3-D design class, and we had a project in which we were told to make a 3-D head using nothing but poster board and tape. My creation was an extremely simplified version of a head, created with five horizontal and vertical planes- no tape, which is something that I'm rather proud about. Just recently, I decided to redo it with more effort, especially in creating the pieces so that they were all symmetrical. And here it is:

This is pretty much the beginning, after I drew out all of the sections onto tracing paper, made sure that they were all symmetrical, cut them out, and arranged them properly on the poster board.

This is after I traced out all the pieces.

All the pieces cut out. From here on out, all of the pictures will consist of the "base" along with the next piece that will be put on.

And finally, the end product of my labors:

That's some pretty nifty paper cutting, well done!

Re: 3-D Abstract Head
Oh I hated having to do that in sculpture class. Mine kept falling apart, and we weren't allowed to have as many pieces to it that you have.

Are you going to cover it/build it up or something?

Re: 3-D Abstract Head
Thanks for the compliments everybody.

Fox- You weren't allowed five pieces? I thought that I used the least amount of pieces necessary to get it right. And my consolations for your collapsing work. This thing really doesn't. I toss it up and down and it's fine.

And for coverings- I may consider it, but not for this one. Poster board is fairly cheap, and I can get three heads for two sheets. And this head I can use to trace around. It's bound to be easier than the tracing paper for that kind of thing.

And I may consider a torso. I think that that would be interesting, especially if I can get the two together...

Re: 3-D Abstract Head
Yea. We only used 2 pieces, one for width and one for depth. I blame it on the fact that we had a totally new teacher who only took that job because she was laid off from a totally different job =_=;

Re: 3-D Abstract Head
That's insane! The first two pieces put together get width and depth, but there's no actual form. Without form, it's not really scuplture.

Re: 3-D Abstract Head
That is supercool - and yes, it would be great to make a torso for it too.

What kind of sculpture do you do? Got an online portfolio?

Re: 3-D Abstract Head
Actually, this is the only piece of sculpture that I've ever really done outside of class. Technically it was originally for class, but this was a redo, and so doesn't exactly count.

Although now I seriously think I will try to do that torso, although I have no idea how I'm going to get the symmetry worked out.

I believe in you!

(also I'd really like to see it if it's successful)
