MY ART

HERE ARE SOME OF THE ART I HAVE CREATED BASED ON THE HUMAN BODY, MY MAIN FOCUS WAS TO RECREATE THE HUMAN HEAD AND ITS FEATURES, THIS SHOWS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO UNDERSTAND THE HUMAN BODY AS IT CAN AID YOU DRAMATICALLY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A 3D MODEL.

QUESTIONAIRE FOR 3D STUDENTS.

Why is anatomy important to you as a 3D designer?

Eiisu’s answer:

“Knowing anatomy is important when creating the 3d characters. Whether you are creating a cartoon character says a computer is speaking to you, you have to make it looks like he is alive expressing his emotions with realistic facial movement. Same goes to the body proportion as well.”

Olu’s Answer:

“Is to understand the structure and the movement of the human begin, which can applied to the model or 3D character to bring it to life.”

Ant’s Answer:

“Anatomy is an integral part of 3d design, as without it, we would be unable to achieve realism with character models, nor would you know how the body moves to animate it. This goes for the anatomy of animals, insects etc.”

Nathan brown:

“Depends on what you want to create, if you want a realistic result then anatomy is rather important to stick close too. However if you are aiming for a cartoony animation then I think it is not relied upon as much. But I think that anatomy in a way restricts people with their work, that they are forced to stick to a strict guideline.”

3d printing in medicine

while researching into medicine, this topic caught my attention, it is about the uses of 3d printing to aid people with hearing problems.

I applaud all the attention that 3D printing has been getting in the media lately. But, I’ve also noticed that many people are now thinking that 3D printing is something that was invented last week and will be relevant in five years.  I’ve asked the two biggest experts on the 3D printing industry Terry Wohlers and Phil Reeves to provide us with some information to redress the balance.

Did you know for example that the 3D printing industry, according to Wohlers report 2010, had revenues of $1.068 billion in 2009? Terry Wohlers told me that just the medical and dental part of the industry was doing $157,000,000 in 2009.  We’ll skip all the news from the laboratory and concentrate on what’s been happening right now in patients with 3D printing medicine.

3D printed Hearing Aids

How many 3D printed hearing aids do you think there are? According to Phil Reeves best conservative estimate, there are “10,000,000 3D printed hearing aids in circulation worldwide.” 3D printing dominates the market for In-The-Ear hearing aids (also called ITE). So if you are wearing an In-The-Ear hearing aid right now, then it is very likely that the outer shell of this hearing aid is 3D printed. So how come you don’t know about this? Because the hearing aid manufacturers didn’t sell the technology but rather told patients about the increased comfort. 3D printing makes hearing aids more comfortable and this is why over the years the 3D printed variants have replaced non 3D printed hearing aids. That simply put is what is going to happen in many industries.

Writing styles

‘Writing a dissertation is a personal research journey.’

  • Stating why/ how you come to choose your question
  • Outlining your interest
  • Drawing links between your research and your practise
  • Personal reflection and examples
  • Considered use of the word “I”
  • Visual inclusion of your 3d work
  • Using different ‘voices’

NEW STRUCTURE OF DISSERTATION

Today was my 3rd time speaking with our dissertation teacher, we all discussed what we had researched, as i only had two chapters for the structure my teacher recommended to have atleast three chapters so i basically had to re-organize the structure.

HERE IS MY NEW STRUCTURE, (hopefully my final one)

STRUCTURE OF DISSERTATION

QUESTION: ‘Why is Anatomy so important for 3d designers?’
CHAPTER ONE

  • INTRODUCTION (WHAT THE QUESTION IS AND WHAT I INTEND TO FIND OUT)
  • ANATOMY (THE ORIGINS OF ANATOMY)
  • ANATOMY (ANATOMY ART & ARTIST)
  • ANATOMY(TOOLS USED AND METHODS)
  • ANATOMY (EVOLUTION OF ANATOMY)

CHAPTER TWO

  • ANATOMY & 3D DESIGN (3D IN MEDICINE)
  • ANATOMY & 3D DESIGN (METHODS LIKE 3D ULTRASOUND, RADIOLOGY)
  • ANATOMY & 3D DESIGN (USE OF 3D FOR MEDICAL EDUCATION)

CHAPTER THREE

  • ANATOMY & 3D DESIGN (IMPORTANCE OF ANATOMY STUDY FOR A 3D DESIGNER)
  • ANATOMY & 3D DESIGN (POLYGON FLOW, 3D ANATOMY LAYOUT)
  • ANATOMY & 3D DESIGN (3D ANATOMY USE IN THE FUTURE)
  • CONCLUSION

 I still need to think of titles for my chapters.
