can anyone help coverting to dfx

Postby Xxray » Thu Feb 02, 2017 5:03 am

Kinda rush job, going to do it for material cost only considering the recipients here.

2D probably edge lit, no intention to go 3D. Put a few hours into it and still coming short ,,, Text am not worried about, but details like the eagle/shields are coming up pretty badly.
If any of you wizards [which I should be after 5+ years] feel like gibing it a go, I'd be much obliged.

Doug, I'd be willing to help, but I'm just not fast enough at creating vectors yet.

Have you tried to contact the organization and see if they have a copy of the original art work. I'd bet it was done in Illustrator or other vector based app.

What is your deadline?

Doug,
Decided to give it a try. Haven't fixed some of the open vectors and haven't built the center shield. Thought I'd see if I was going in the right direction before continuing.

As for the eagle drawing I googled for "Eagle Drawing" and came up with this https://www.google.com/search?q=eagle&b ... le+drawing You may find a suitable image. I would try googling for any of the difficult images.
Hope this is helpful.

HP nice job. Only thing I would change is to elongate the beak a work it over a bit. Rest looks superb.

Thanks Dwayne,

Finished the eagle at 4am this morning, was getting a bit punchy, had to hit the sack for a bit. :D :D :D

Think you're right looking at the eagle again now.

Dwayne,

I reworked the eagle a little bit. Still no work of art but a bit better.

HP much better. I actually touched the eye just a bit. :lol: :lol: He just had that kind of death stare. XxRay should like that it will look tight on an edgelit. :lol: :lol:

Dwayne,

Nice touch. I'm not too sure how much all this fiddling with the eagle is going to help though. Unless Doug plans on making a very big edge lit sign the eagle is going to be just a smudge :D :D :D

True I was working on a 12 x 12 piece lastnight when I crashed my drag bit. Was a sweet piece too :shock:

Thanks John and all, won't have the time to mess with it until later but I'll post back ... I know the eagle is somewhat of a mess, size will probably be in the 12x12 area, am confident drag bit can pick up every bit of detail there is [which can be both good and bad]
Did this mayan edgelit some time back, drag bits are capable of very fine detail if the vectors are in order

Very pretty piece Doug. I have edge lit signs on my list of things to get Round-To-It.

Design a little more complex than I had thought, this is what I came up with.

Will post back if/when I make it, looks like a go at this point - Any criticisms welcome.
