Re: Who will build their Jem's after the Competition?
Thanks for the nice comments but in my own defense, the competition said to use the template provided and put your design on it, which I did by hand with a thin and thick artline sharpie. I have no talent at using photoshop let alone 3D modelling that some of the other artists have. I just used the template as they asked of me. After seeing the presentation of the other entries, in hindsight, I wish I did embellish it a little and fancify it up but in the end, I believe it's the initial design that matters and with all the entries going in, mine may be like a breath of fresh air with only the guitar and the simple description included for them to have to look at without all the other fluff.
As for color, I specifically didn't want any. I tried to do some variations on it with color but it looked really strange and in the end, the plain black and white with Gold hardware really just pops for me. The wood engraving bit you mentioned sounds great but who and how the heck would i get that done?....... if you have any ideas there I'd definately contemplate it.
