Chapter 2. Creating Objects

Chapter 2. Creating Objects

Everything in nature can be represented as a combination of geometric forms. As the painter Paul Cézanne once wrote, “Treat nature in terms of the cylinder, the sphere, the cone; everything in proper perspective.” He also is reported to have said, “One must first of all study geometric forms: the cone, the cube, the cylinder, the sphere.”

Today, 3D artists use geometric forms called objects to create and animate entire worlds. Starting with a foundation of the cone, the cube, the cylinder, and the sphere (Figure 2.1), you can combine and manipulate basic objects to create highly complex and realistic scenes.
