Boundaries & Color

Doing tests for a custom comission, today I tried to push the limits of the metal inlay…more or less succesfully…

On one hand, I tested an idea I had around for a while, adding a bit of color to the metal inlay. In this case, a little red in the form of copper inserts…

On the other, doing some detailed work…wich proved difficult to achieve…

Can anyone say what the number “4” symbol tries to be?


Well, finally, the number “4” symbol got dumped…they where suposedly, four starships…but the Metal inlaid technique doesn’t allow for the finer detail needed for doing a recognisable starship silhouette…instead, I remembered how much do I love starmaps…so I did this:

a LOT better, don’t you think?

  1. I’d guess sea weed?

  2. I don’t think I get what #3 is (or why it represents 3).

    • I’ts a circuit board with three components…I might move one of the pathways to clarify it a little…

      • ok, I can see it now.

        I think you need to remove _2_ pathways.

        It looks (to me) like you’ve got a resistor (the long and narrow component), a capacitor (the round one), and an integrated circuit or multiplexer (square/rectangular one, where all of the pathways converge).

        Between the pathways to the capacitor and the pathways to the resister are 2 pathways that don’t connect to anything. I would remove those two, as they just serve (in my opinion) to clutter the image. Removing them would, in my opinion, make the 3 components stand out more. Plus, you might be able to enlarge the 3 components slightly, giving them more emphasis over the pathways.

      • Agreed ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I like the spacechart a lot ๐Ÿ˜€
    As always, really cool dices ^^ Grats!

  4. I love #5, Good idea for a die with scars!
