My inner animal is a Dove
The dove is known for its simplicity, symbolizing new beginnings, peace, and harmony. I grew up in a quiet family that handled matters in a calm and collected way. There was no shouting or yelling in the house, and everyone is wary about each other's feelings. We also moved countries, so we are always looking for new beginnings in our lives, which means that my family is now spread apart globally, but we continue to aim for order and solitude. I hope to possess the dove attributes of inner peace, affection, innocence, and love.
In the making of this 3D object, I was attempting to embody the reserved, calm, and simple qualities of the dove. Initially, I wanted to create the dove in flight, but I ultimately decided that it takes away from the symbolism. It was challenging to get used to the software. I watched through and practiced tinkercad's tutorial on how to use certain features and shortcuts. It was also helpful to refer to other tutorials available on Youtube. Overall, this project seemed simple and straight forward, but it definitely requires knowledge and skill when using the software. I would like to create more 3D objects using this software and printing them out on campus if students are allowed access to the printer. This opens new avenues of art making that I didn't know was possible.
