Marcus Aurelius: 1) I did not have to log in or register or give you the size of my flacid penis to see WTF.That's an excellent first impression.2) Looks at artwork.Did your father force you to drive a maroon Taurus station wagon on your first date by any chance?
vossiewulf: Subby the basic concept is good and it's executed skillfully. But the patterns are too busy and detract from the shape of the elephant and (I assume) what is supposed to be the focal point, the text. I'd either make the elephant bigger so the text is completely contained, or I'd make a series of elephants (much smaller) surrounding the text, so the eye loops around them, then is drawn into the writing. Right now with the text kind of contained by the elephant but extending outside an arbitrary distance here and there the connection between the text and the elephant is ruined, making it look like you made a cool elephant and then stapled a random piece of paper on it.But like I said you have a good idea. It just needs to be fiddled with a bit to be really good.
douchebag/hater: That's PAPER CUTTING?!?!?
nmrsnr: What's the Reader's Digest version of the text?It's a ketubah
EviLincoln: So how long did that take you to make?
nmrsnr: EviLincoln: So how long did that take you to make?Roughly 15 hours of cutting, about two weeks with an hour or two of work most nights.
EviLincoln: Nice. Is that paper you used or vinyl?
nmrsnr: Subby here. Thanks, yeah, when I started the design I asked the recipients (this is for their wedding) if they wanted clean (just the outline and some broad detail lines in the elephant, like the lions), busy, or super busy, and a swatch of what each would look like, they chose "super busy"
Thudfark: I guess now would not be a good time to point out 3 typos?/I keed
nmrsnr: Thudfark: I guess now would not be a good time to point out 3 typos?/I keedYou joke, but the couple who are getting married gave the wrong name to the person who did the calligraphy (John Smith vs. John son of Jim sort of thing) so they will have a big fancy piece of otherwise worthless paper, and another hastily printed but religiously significant piece of paper at their wedding.
