So whenever I attend someone’s birthday party or I have some gift to give, like at Christmas, I always make a card. They are typically inside jokes or contain content that specifically applies to the person I give the card to, which is why I generally don’t post them. This time of year is always hugely busy with finals and the several cards I have to crank out, so these cards are each made in the order of a few hours (say 3-4) + rendertime (though I always wish I could give more time). This time I thought I would just post what I created since I have like a packet of them
This was to my sister, my gift to her was designing a business card for her to use in a conference later this month, hence the cards on the card
Having recently moved to a home with a little beach in front, a friend of ours said we should name it Crawford Cove, with like a little plaque, hence I created what it might look carved into a piece of driftwood (hopefully you can tell it’s driftwood…)
My grandfather builds detailed modeled ships, even bends the wood to fit the hull! (makes me wonder where this modeling hobby comes from) There was now ay I had time to create a ship to be comparable with his work, and I wanted him to appreciate the ship on the card, so I had to use a model from blendswap. Which by the way, FANTASTIC job Radoslaw Kurczewski! It’s incredible work.
