A New Question…for your comments!

Our textbook, Rapid Viz, breaks down the Rapid Viz Process into three stages:

  1. Stage 1: Thumbnails
  2. Stage 2: Transparencies (Roughs)
  3. Stage 3: Final Drawing (Comps)

Now, we have worked with principles of the textbook, but have not worked exclusively with the textbook. Can you tell me- What are the goals and key concepts of each stage? How much time do you think should be spent in each stage?  Why? And finally, is it better to work collectively, in a group, critiqueing or alone? Share!

    the purpose of the Thumbnail is to get a loose and very basic lay out or what could be, the time spent on it should be minimal but with room to come back to.

    The Rough level is where you have an advanced Thumbnail taken to a bigger and created into a better copy. also taking that copy and repeatedly drawing it over and over, to fine tune it. this step should take a bit more time than step one but not to long to loose track of your main goal.

    The final level is easy and explains it self you put all the fine Tunes on your project, making look presentable. this level takes the most time, making it look good

    As far as working is concerned, I think having a group at least for critiqueing is very beneficial. I enjoy working around other people to draw off of their creativity. It is encouraging to see other people’s work.
