3-d Twirler

Using 3-D TWIRLER, make a symmertical shape and give it a twirl. Create the outline of a shape and rotate it on an x, y, or z axis, then spin it around to see it from all angles. Bring it closer to you and then push it away. Cover the shape you've made with a pattern skin and notice how the lines and shadows change. Now try to draw the same object with a pencil on paper. How can you make it seem solid and round? Learn how artists make some of the same shapes without a computer.
