    Default Small piece for a German Shepard

    A close friend ordered a dog tag for his canine family member. He paid up front and said to use a pretty script and maybe a little scroll but the overall design was up to me. All that's left is to finish the background removal, shade and blacken...Dan

    I like it , will you be shading the leaves? Just wondering what metal was used for this trinket.

    Very nice and a lucky dog.
    You said you have the main shading and blacking to finish.
    Just a friendly heads up......
    It look like you missed the shade on one pair of border leaves at about 8 o'clock.

    Roger B, thanks. He asked for nickel silver and luckily I had a spare piece laying around. He also asked to put his and his wife's phone numbers on the reverse in script.
    John B, thank you too. Funny, as I was shading I just happened to notice the unshaded leaves, thanks for the heads up...
    Blackened and ready to deliver...Dan

    That is not bad, Pretty good but do not be deceived by the word stainless. All stainless is not equal. You can run into a bear on guns.

    Thanks Don, my shading continues to be a work in progress. I'm finding that each and every shade line needs to have a purpose or it's a waste of time and effort. I feel I got close with several of the leaves but they all could have been improved upon with a little more forethought on my part...Dan
