###### Asked in Sculpting

### Can forms be organic or geometric?

Yes
forms usually are either organic or geometric. Organic shapes
resemble shapes usually met in nature; the gentle curve of a tree
branch, the floral or a rock for example.
Geometric shapes are easy to draw and measure with rulers and
other devices. Usual geometric shapes are symmetric like circle,
square, triangle, cross... for example. Geometric shapes can also
be asymmetric.
