I just finished up the Design Fundamentals video. Excellent video and it really helped me think about and see design choices.
I did struggle to follow @ryan’s logic when determining the direction of a tree’s apex. Either I missed some specifics that Ryan mentioned or different criteria matter in different contexts and I didn’t follow. Any pointers?
I sketched up these four hypothetical apices, absent from the rest of the tree:
#1 definitely moves to the left. Here, the high point is on the left side of the apex, and boundaries are roughly level
I think #2 moves to the left, but I’m less sure. The high point is laterally equidistant from the right and left boundaries of the apex, but the lower boundary leans the tree that way
#3 moves to the left as well. High point is on the left side, and the left boundary leans down too.
#4 I’m less sure about. High point is laterally to the right, but the left boundary leans down. Maybe this is a bad theoretical example and I’m just confusing myself
Is this something that just takes time and practice to see better? I’m definitely a beginner and trying to train my eyes to see design better
