For the next version of the relief we started where we left off yesterday. To begin adding to that version I created a small circle vector and then duplicated it three times. I aligned then using the various ALIGNMENT tools, making everything accurate.
I resized the circles to fit in-between the second and inside ovals.
Here's a closeup of the circles all lined up nice and even.
Then I used the WELD JOINED tool to unite the circles into one relief.
Then I was prompted to I selected the second from last oval, then pushed the green apply check mark..
When I hit the render button the rope mesh appears red. I dropped down the the front view and because I had aligned the original relief to the bottom of the plate the rope floated above it.
When I selected the rope mesh it turned green.
I used the down key to nudge it into position, just a tad higher than half way into the base relief.
To get the APPLY MESH TO RELIEF button to become active I had to select both pieces. I opened the box and selected MERGE HIGHEST... then hit apply.
In an instant the mesh shape was applied to the base relief. When I hit render bits of yellow peek through the red mesh. This tells me everything is peachy keen. The mesh is still there, unaltered. I can either delete it or move it to an inactive layer.
This version of the fish plaque is now complete and looks extra snazzy.
