SPACE ‐ TIME ANALYSIS Movement Expression

I'm trying to learn 3ds Max to help me this year to produce some 3D animations for my final film. I may still model in Revit and try to import into 3dsMax, as those 2 programs have the best link, so it will be easier than using Blender or Cinema 4D. Above is my first attempt at modelling in 3ds Max, the model is based on the movement vectors in the drawing series.
