Well im very much a vector guru and something like this would be a nice challenge.
The 3D sculpting part that is. I think i'll fire up the Aspire trial and give it a shot.
It's going to be a new thing for me soon so I'll be digging all I can.

Ronnie that was quickly made using the same technique as the trout. It is just a texture file but you do need to give it some thickness and use the smoothing filter on it. It won't work on everything but it is a powerful tool when used for it's intended purpose. |
If I was making a model of this coin I would make a set of vectors for each element and then create a component from the vectors. Then I would sculpt the items to add more detail. It takes a while to do something like this but once you have it finished you can use the file for all kinds of things.

|honesttjohn||Nothing on them except a couple coats of aluminum metallic paint.|

|marecat3||I have made a few of these, even a couple out of oak which stain wonderfully. I don't have any pictures because as soon as I finish something the boss takes it. lol. Did you put the black wax on them, it really brings out the details.|

|UglySign|| MEBCWD , that looks fugly. So tell me, if you were to go in there |
and make vectors out it, you would manually have to apply depth etc
to look like the coins John made?
Lol... when Rick mentioned scanning, I was in old school mode of scanning.
Not the new 3D scan methods. Those 3D scanners can be costly to get good
resolution and optimal results. I basically referenced that Trout tutorial
from Vectric. There seems to be alot of work going into making a 3D file,
your own that is. Man, I've got alot to learn myself here. Unsure if I'll be
using Aspire or Enroute. Thanks Mike I'll pay a little more attention to this.

|MEBCWD||Just a quick texture creation in Aspire but not too bad. This is not how I would actually do it but this would work for somethings.|
