3-D Modelling in art is a process by which the forms of a sculpture are built up piece by piece out of a plastic material like clay, wax or plaster. It is opposite to glyptic or carving.

2-D Modelling is the device used for the rendition of solid form and receding planes in a two-dimensional representation. It relies on the use of gradiation and the subtle transition from light to dark in the painting of the object. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
