Variations On A Theme

Postby Dave R » Mon Apr 07, 2008 4:17 pm

On Friday my brother called and asked me to design a sort of Arts and Crafts style doorbell cover to replace the ugly plastic one he had. I sketched out a few otptions. Thought I'd show them here.

Larger version here.

He built the one second from the left, bottom row. I like the one in the lower right corner.

I like the second from the left, top row, though his and your favorites are sorta tied for second best. ;)

May all your dimensions be the sum of their total.

Lower right corner is my favorite too. Nice Dave... maybe this will bring my machines out of hibernation soon and I will build my own. :)

I gotta tell ya, I'd also go for the second from left, bottom row.
Beautiful stuff, Dave.

How did you make the picture? It's got such a beautiful "recently discovered DaVinci sketch" to it.
I hope you don't need Photoshop or anything like that. Can this be done purely in SU?

If you don't know where you're going, you're never going to get there.

Thank you Gidon. That was sort of the look I was after. In this case it is a combination of my Old Paper style which I posted in the Styles section and one of Ross' line styles from Form Fonts. the only post production was a bit of auto-contrast in Picasa to darken things up.

Dave, I like the way you display your projects. Beside the fact that they are always very nice, they also have very attractive styles.

Thank you Luca.

As Roger has discerned, I have access to some very rare paper for these images. :roflmao:

I was thinking that I need to find the photo of the one my brother actually made and post that.

Thanks Ron,

This was originally posted about a year ago. I keep thinking I'll make ne but I haven't done it yet. I guess since I did these for my brother and he did build one, it was successful.

Oops, one of these times I'll have to look at the submitted dates to see when the thread started. Color me red!
