I´m trying to convert a cartoon sketch into a silver pendant. This is an order from a client, so I can´t really improvise with the look.
I´m mostly familiar with creating jewellery of my own design. I work less with organic objects and more with symmetrical shapes. So, this is kind of a challenge for me.
I´m Using Rhino 5 with Rhinogold 4.0 and Clayoo 1.0
I am familiar with Rhino and Rhinogold but have no experience with clayoo
I added the original picture and a version with higher contrast and some changes, my client asked for. How can I approach a project like this? Does it make sence to use a CAD program for this pendant?
I know, a lot of you are using Rhino for organic designs and even very realistic skulptures.
So, maybe somebody has an idea for me?
So far, I have tried to devide the drawing into seperate segments and then extrude the segments one by one. The hight of the extrusions varies from segment to segment, to create a more realistic look. Once I have the basic shape, I remodel the segments and round the corners etc. In the end, I connect all the segments via boolean and add a loop for the chain.
With Rhino tools it is possible, but it seems to be very time intensive. And it would be difficult to get a “natural” look.
Are there more options to work on this? Does it make sence to use clayoo? And if yes, would it be possible to learn the use of clayoo, to the needed extend, to create this model within a week? I would like to learn how to use clayoo, but I´m not sure if this is a good project to start with.
The pendant should have a diameter of 30mm. Maximum hight 4mm.
Thank you very much for your time!
