Step 1: Step 1: Research the Meaning of My Name
佳/jia/ (simplified version is the
same as original version)
Structure of Chinese Character: Left-Right
Radical ( Simplified version):亻,means people
Method of Creation: ideograph
The original meaning is good, beautiful.
Step 2: Step 2: Innovative Interpretation
佳/jia/ is formed by two parts, one
is 人/ren/ means people. The other part is 圭/gui/ means jade tablet of high value which comes deep from the earth. So 佳 also means beautiful jade. But in my opinion, i think 圭/gui/ is more like person, and apparently the one on the top is more outstanding.
Step 3: Step 3: Design
I applied the outstanding person as my design concept. To express that, a Chinese phrase a crane standing among chickens comes to my mind, it means standing on head and shoulders above others. I applied a lot of people set off the particular person, and therefore the one on top must be the one who is outstanding and excellent.
Step 4: Step4: 3D Modeling
The 3D model has to show a image of a crane standing among the chickens, and also it has to look like the character 圭, so I applied the image of shooting graduation photo. Those who are excellent and outstanding are always standing in the middle and they stand look like the character 圭.
