    Default a Unique Flower

    An idea by Gary Bouton - drawn in Xara.
    It was quite a challenge, but, I have to say a big thanks to Gary for the creative idea in the first place.

    Folks, all I did was a simple model. The person who did the real work is Rik.

    Never in 1,000 years would I attempt to do his drawing in Xara...I just don't have the skill!

    I modeled the thing. Compare the two renditions. My final render was much better, but that's not the point. Rik successfully and artistically reverse-engineered my sculpture there! From image, to wireframe!

    My Best,

    I get invalid attachment Gare... Awesome drawing Rik!

    Without knowing better... I would have guessed a 3d render.

    Yep, looks pretty incredible. When I first saw this I was sure it was one of Gare's 3D renderings.

    dutchim posted that he could't see the attachment of the rough draft upon which Rik drew the goofy flower:

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
