    Default I'm bored...

    We have a lot of car cruise-ins around my area...probably not so much this year, but I thought I would practice modeling some plaques.

    Looks like a good start. It's digital so lets play. I'd pull the cars apart maybe tip them down a bit to match the oval slope and give an aggressive stance. Make them a little smaller. Move the diamond center and larger put the checkered flags on the diamond maybe half height of the diamond. I would move the letters to the top and find a banner ribbon for the bottom or create a place for a brass nameplate. The reasons for the letter changes and centering the diamond are branding the Diamond Shine sponsor. The negative (un-3d carved) areas will show off the wood.

    Thanks, that was a nice distraction. Just my 2cents

    I appreciate your input. I've just started down the 3D path, and compiling reliefs.
    I'm just messing with the modeling, and this isn't an actual brand, or for any particular event.
    I cut the door from the other post, yesterday. I did it out of Poplar (the only thing I had on hand), and I'm not pleased with the outcome.
    However, it will still be used for the project, since it will just go in the flower garden as decoration.

    Whatever you do, do not get into 3-d. It is addicting. 99% of what i do involves 3-d.
