The 3D Wheel Disaster

As you have noticed, creating a 3D object is not as straightforward as it might have appeared. The good news is that mapping to an object is pretty easy. The bad news is the rest of the wheel!

What can we salvage from the exercise?

Lines – straight, dotted and dashed, thick lines, smooth lines etc…..

Lines are the first design principle we are going to have a look at from the exercise.

Oblique Drawing
What is it? Exercise 1
Exercise 2
Exercise 3 

If we have time we will make a cute monster in Illustrator (this is much easier than the 3D wheel, I promise).
