Introducing my first attempt at a mechanical watch. Still needs some polishing up but im pleased with where its at. Thank you @mikeoday for your patience and help with the HR needle coding.
ok, Unless you think differently, I think i’ve now captured the depth with my limited shadowing, glowing & lighting skills. I hate it when you learn something new or a better way of doing something and then have to go back and apply it to all previous watches that could benefit
Very nice, I love the gears.
I will say the numbers along the left are a little hard to read they need something to make them pop from the background more IMHO
Yeah not sold on the numbers either. I’ll see what I can do
How about something like this, possibly need to be a shade smaller?
Or something different completely.
That definitely helps. I think the size is fine, If anything you could go even lighter with the background rectangles. But as is it’s way more readable.
The difficulty is trying to maintain the ancient machine look without it looking too polished so to speak. Trying to avoid any print text (just noticed the E & F battery statuses…Damn). I want it to be interesting though.
Very nice, looks wonderful!
