The first name plaque is a lot like the file I did for the last sign we made last week but we'll add some hand sculpting to make it very special for Philip - a returning guest from Australia.
I imported the driftwood bitmap and then traced around it to get the vector I needed. If you look close you can see the blue vector line.
I then used the dome tool to get a slightly rounded top.
The driftwood bitmap texture was then applied to the relief.
I then created a separate flat relief using the lettering border vector.
Lastly the board relief was modified using the letter relief by adding to it. That polished off this relief and made it ready for tool patching and sending off to the MultiCam.
Next up was Darrel's name plate. This one was a little more formal. The lettering was properly sized and kerned and then a border added.
I then modified this relief by doming up the center. Don't delete this vector yet as we would need it to define the shape where the texture would go.
I then imported a star texture (from my bitmap collection) and applied it to the base relief using the inside oval vector as a mask.
That's two of twenty-two name plates. Stay tuned for more...
