Fail revisit: “Want to know more?”

If you have been here long enough, you know what I’m talking about ^^.

For the newcomers:

In the beginning there was a dicecreator full of dreams, with newborn techniques to do new dice finishes. But noone borns wise, and sometimes, the techniques backfired.

The “Starship Troopers” tribute was one of those. My first ever epic failure on doing a prototype. Just look at the picture. All the numbers are off center by a km.  and the main symbol just popped out the plastic…it was like the aliens 4 scene with the die quietly whispering: “kill meeeeeeee”.

So, flashforward a few months. The techniques have grown older (and wiser) and now I can do things a lot better.

Of course, I agree that the number font is just horrible, but for the sake of personal vengeance, I wanted to do it just how it was meant to be in the first place. If anyone wants it on the shop, I’ll change the font to something more readable.

You can see that now I have fixed the troublesome “complete ring problem”. It’s laborious, but now it can be done.

As for the previous prototype fate…after long hours of reconstructive surgery, it had a tumorous symbol removed from his face. Now it sits hapily between my other prototypes, wich take care of him, as he has lost his balance and has a tendendy to fall off. ^^
