I chose this image to adopt an iridescent color palette for my model. The idea was to create an effect of a holographic “snake”.
Continuing my workflow from Week 3, the following snapshots capture the steps involved in creating the above model.
Overall workflow (Week 3 and 4 combined):
The parameters that can be flexed:
- The radius of the arc used to create the surface
- Number of cosine curves and the period of the cosine function
- U and V input values for creating the panel grids
- Radius of cross-section of the structural framing elements (tubes)
