This was a very fun project for a new ride at a local theme park. It’s a drop tower and we proposed the name Cloud Buster. All of the other rides feature a cartoon character and for this one we came up with the idea of a porcupine shooting his shotgun at the clouds. The porcupine’s name is Buster. I did a quick sketch to clarify the ideas in my head and to also establish the typestyle we would use on the sign. This quick scribble was about 6″ tall and only took a few minutes.
When I was ready to proceed with the sign (later that afternoon) I opened the vector file in EnRoute once again and created the outlines for the sign. But before we could go further the design needed a little tweaking.
I then selected the base relief and the lettering to modify the base relief once more. I again entered a value of 0.3″ and hit apply. Once again I did a render to make sure I achieved the result I was hoping for.
