Doug isn't like anybody else I know. By his own description he is part artist, sculptor, painter and mad scientist. His current logo is a rocket blasting off of a moon. Designing his name plaque is a snap. the font had to reflect his character. If you study it real hard you can even read it. :)
To create the moon I started with a simple domed relief.
Then I added a new bitmap, which will be part of the new TEXTURE MAGIC COLLECTION which I am currently working on.
Then it was on to the lettering border. I first created a flat relief 0.4" tall. The height is arbitrary. I then created an offset vector I would use to modify the lettering border. I didn't change the settings from when I created the moon relief and so the lettering border curved in the same manner.
Before I merged the lettering border to the moon I modified the moon relief by adding the lettering. It had to be higher than the lettering outline relief to show up.
I then merged highest the lettering border to the moon background.
The moon was then ready to be tool pathed and sent off to the MultiCam to be routed from a piece of 1.5" thick 30 lb Precision Board.
I'm thinking that since I only see my good friend Doug rarely a blue moon might be just the ticket.
