I wanted to explore and play around with vases further, they were fairly basic vessels with a classical nature that i could eventually dive deeper into at a later point.
It did cross my mind, to throw some vases and 3d scan them. that would be nice. it would be preferable and a testament to the skill and art of vase making. sadly im a terrible thrower. it is not something i feel is impossible, but it is hard. and not easy on my schedule.
so what else?
I shall 3d model it.
best programme i found to use after a bit of googling, was Maya.
and yes, yes it was indeed good. almost to easy.
I created a column by extruding the top face of a cylinder. then i stretched each vertex to shape a vase.
worked very nicely.
shape and theme wasn’t terribly important at this stage. i just needed a shape to work with.
