Comparison between actual bird and first iteration
  • Look at how the wings curve, convex v.s concave. Look at how they make some graphic shapes and use those as the form.
  • Use the plastic so that it maintains the structure/integrity of the wings — wings are not as sharp as ones in the photos
  • beak is a little bigger — doesn’t have a similar transition to the bird
  • make it out of three pieces, how to divide it up so that it isn’t d distracting — logical
  • three parts of dividing it up — look at the base, curves, and the plate
  • Has volume like the rest of the bird
