Re: Stanley's Totem


We vacationed in Vancouver BC when I was little and I loved Stanley Park. I started this on Friday at work, drew it and colored it there from pictures of this particular totem. Scanned it and have been trying to get it to look halfway decent since then and finally discovered Vector Magic, amazing what that can do. Still not great but presentable at least and I just didn't want to give up on it ... Jaden also did a Stanley Park totem which I think is better... check it out

Stannley you're too sweet! Thanks for the nod. While I was working on mine most of Friday afternoon through to this evening, I noticed your lone post in the threads (I don't read the threads much when I do my pieces). I'm glad you like mine, and yours is really nice too. I wanted to make sure mine was discernible from any other piece while also making sure that people knew I put some (ok, a lot) time into making the totem make sense.

It's kinda like making a Japanese inspired shirt and then slapping characters on it. I want to know what I'm putting in the design makes sense before I put it out there. thanks again!

BTW, sent you a PM!
