Hello from Zuidland, The Netherlands,
I have been operating Aspire now since 2 days and I used the namesign example for my own design, a namesign for my mothers home.
My dad, who passed away 21 years agoo made a namesign for the house of just a plank of hardwood and cut the lettering by hand.
Now in the year that my mum will be 75 years old I like to give her a new namesign for her birthday.
The first design shows the name in Latin of a Gennet in the banner, a seabird living in the North Atlantic.
This bird is called in Dutch "Jan van Gent" which also happend to be my fathers name........
I need to work (sculpting) the shape of the birds head and tail a bit.
I personally like my second design more
It shows the head of the bird with its particular lines like in the picture below.
The name will be layed-in with leaf-gold and the birds will be painted white with the black wingtips, the birdshead in the 2nd desing will be painted accoring to the picture of he 2 birds.
I will make an example first in high density foam to see the result in real, after that I (or my mum) have to decide what design will will her 'present' ( the other design wil almost sertainly be made for promotional purposes in my workshop.
I'll keep you posted of my progress.
I really love the Vectric software so far
