Total size is 48" x 36". 26 animals. Approx +/- 800 pieces. Woods used was walnut, cedar, cherry, maple, oak, gumwood, birch, pine, alder. Elephants came from a 23-year old recycled cedar fence.
I either traced the vectors using Adobe Illustrator and/or used AutoCad Raster Design which can create a vector from selecting a pixel line. I then bring it into Aspire as a dxf or an ai to finish with its edit tools which is a whole lot easier to use.
One problem I had was I started modeling them using Very High Resolution. Because of the size, my computer crashed, so I had to bring the resolution down to Standard, which caused the components to be jagged. To solve that, I started copying the vectors into "Cut Files" and used Very High Resolution, which gave me a nice, clean component. I spaced them about 0.5mm between vectors.
Pattern came from Judy Gale Roberts Studio.
