squirrels and stairs

Project 3, Uncategorized

Stairway to heaven guarded by the squirrels in the park. I Had to change my idea as certain laser cutters do certain cuts and i had to many lines in my original for the laser cutter to cut. I looked at other plaques thinking of ways to simplify my idea.

I lloked at how i could simplify and combine the squirrel and stairs together and after a few drawing i instantly came to find merging the tail and stairs together gives the same effect as the squirrel. It will be completely cut out of the ply wood.

This is me adding areas using the scissor tool to cut out lines to place other lines in to create other shapes.

This is what it should look like after it is cut out using the laser cutter onto the 3mm plywood. I really like shape of the plaque as it changes from the centre outwards to match the stairs and the squirrels characteristics. I definetley want it cut onto wood as wood comes from trees and the squirrels come from the trees.
