Quite some time ago, i posted the following image:
I said it was more about the joke, because my modelling skills were still very low. And now that they’ve become a bit better, I thought i’d give it another try. Here it is, rendered in yafray, a few hours modeling:
For me the first version carries the idea better. Maybe because the “men” part is really simple where it has some appliances in the second version. And the explicit marking in the second leaves less room for fantasy. And, finally, I like the typeface in the first :-).
I’ll try to wind me out of this: The overall effect of a script type on an old fashioned technical gadget attracts me more than some sans serif at a polished current device. Er… I think i would like to see some real script, handwritten, with irregularities.
Only thing I’d do is remove the obvious “MEN” and “WOMEN” labels and replace them with something subtler… like the universal male and female symbols, smaller, in the corner. That way the joke’s funnier. At first glance, you’re like, huh? Then, after a second, you see the symbols and make out what’s going on.
that’s why its funny: it’s a stereotype. geez. :rolleyes:
I personally hate the default blender text. ANYTHING is better than that. I recommend you label the switch on men “on” and “off”. I kind of like how the original was more related to complexity instead of volume. Everything on the second one seems to be related to sound.
