Cubic designs – Drawing, sketching and designing (6/19)


We’re going to use that cube activity
to make some more complex shapes. Start exactly as I started before
with this Y shape here and use that in order to help me
construct a cubic form. Those and those and drop that down. I want to make that
into a double vertical cube. So I can simply take the dimension
from there to there and I do that
by estimating on my drawing where that comes to.
Just used my pen as a guide. And just as I used that line
to help form these two lines, I’m going to use that line
to help me inform that line. And I’m going to use that line
to help me guestimate that line. So what I’ve done
is create a new Y shape immediately above the previous one. I can now produce that line there
and extend that line. And using that one
I’m beginning to extend them. So I’ve created a guestimate
of a double cube there. And that works
exactly the same as before that you could have
any Y shape at all. You would be
sketching those in like this. So it can be quite fast.
Project that up. Make sure you’ve got the top one
the same height as the first one. Project that across,
that across to there. And you can get rather fast but effective illustrations
of double cubes. It works
the other way around as well. If I want to put one side by side, there’s my starting point,
the Y shape. There’s the shapes for that. And I can project
this line forward now onto here. And estimate
where the front would be, project that through,
project that back, project that back. And we’ve got
a cube projected forward. Let’s try and demonstrate that again. Project that line forward. I’m just estimating
where that would come to. Project that back,
project that back to there. And so we’ve got double cubes. And of course I could keep adding on,
three cubes. I could have one going back here. So we begin to get
quite complex shapes out of putting cubes vertically
or horizontally. I’m going to use both these
techniques in the next activity.
