    Default I have a confession to make

    engraved_knife-PC-2.jpg

    I have a confession to make. The engraved knife I posted yesterday was not engraved. It was a test to see if Procreate and the iPad Pro could produce a design that looked like it was actually engraved. It took me a couple of hours to draw the design, which I think proves that it can work well as a prototyping tool for an engraving job, if you wanted or needed that capability.

    I started to, but then I figured you had enough girls chasing you already and I didn't want to add to your burden

    Very good Sam, but, for me, there was something not quite right....it's not as good as your actual engraving

    The other give away is the pixels when it's blown up compared to the rest of the picture

    Good though, all the same!

    Thanks Phil! I drew the engraving at a very small size, and it's apparent that it's not as good as an actual engraving. If I were to do it again, I would draw it 10x larger which would give me proper detail, then shrink to fit the bolster. Then I believe it would be even more accurate and convincing. Anyway, I can see possibilities for this being a good tool for producing the look of a finished engraving, although it's not something I require very often. I guess this is how I have fun when I'm not working :D

    A couple of friends said the same thing. I normally have closeup shots of engraving so they were suspicious when I posted this one!

    One thing you might think about... is that if the drawing is that good (and it is) - someone, somewhere, someday - is going to be able to couple these quality drawings with a CAD/CAM program that has yet to be written - and be able to take a nap for the rest of the day...
