Creating a sign post
Mar 19, 2013
I would like to create a sign post to use in a course I'm creating. I have a sign post image but, unfortunately it looks like its tilting backwards because of the perspective of the image. I decided to buy something but a search for images didn't render anything usable either (this surprised me) as everything was either shot from the ground looking up or is shot straight on but the sign post doesn't touch the ground (i.e. the image is only of the top half of the sign).
I then decided to create a sign post myself, thinking it would be easy enough but everything I create looks entirely one dimensional. When I used shadowing to create some dimension the whole sign itself still looked flat. A search for tutorials also left me empty handed. Does anyone have any ideas regarding building a simple sign post? I'll share anything I create on the forum (if I succeed)!
