May 3 work in progress
I want to clarify something about these images that I'm putting on this gun. Though the subject matter was chosen by the CCA, and I was sent some reference photos, the compositions here are entirely my own. The ovals, the landscape, that's all me. The grips were actually sent with sample engravings that I could transfer on and copy if I so desired, but I didn't want the images to be just floating in space, and I wanted to somehow tie the two sides together so I ended up kinda starting from scratch with preliminary drawings (in Photoshop this time). I think they look super fabulous, props to me. :-D
I think I'm on track, time-wise. I have not worked on the knife for a couple days, since the gun is a little more urgent.
