Flexi-tips part 1

flexi08 A: Flexi symbols: (1) normal state, (2) bend, (3) stretch, (4) twist, (5) squash.

B+C: The silhouette of twist is reinforced with overlap lines (also called “T’s”), indicating depth.

D: readable, feels like rubber.

E: not very readable (esp. silhouette), feels flat and weightless.

Applied to a simple character:
