    Valery,
    Hello, such a long time.
    I learnt a lot from your drawings and that's the reason I'm so curious about this drawing I do know something special is hidden in it.
    I can't realize what things were made with mould tool I'm sure you made something fantastic and difficult to achieve.
    Best regards and thank you very much.

    There are no difficulties in my idea.
    When we wish to show some cylindrical character of form it means that front surface looks on us and side ones turning from our sight. Other words, details in the middle have real proportions and side ones became shorter in one axis. Mould tool (envelope) can to do this work for us. (pict. 1)
    Same changes we can see on reflect surfaces, so we also can to use envelope tool, but in this case we have to take some reflect map. (pict. 2)
    It is my idea brifly.
