What needs to be changed? More simpler? Features further pressed in?


Sorry, I realise I wasn't clear enough. On the bottom of the base is where I think the problem area is, on every single BD model the base is flat.

Like the bottom bottom the underside? That is flat I thought does it not look flat in my pictures? I can fix that.

Huh? But isn't that the only way ?? See I'm mainly doing this as a fun project but I also live in a very strict home where my life and money are monitored closely :sniffing: so It would be cool if it was picked im not saying it's any good like there are some really good ones currently in the labs but it's a nice thought at the very least. It might not be very good but at least I tried :)


Oh, no, it's not the quality of the toy at all! I was thinking more to submit it to a different company to design; the toy itself is amazing, which is why I think it would be best to submit it to a place it's more likely to be made and to have all of the colors along with it!

Question should I make the features a bit more blended and subtle I don't know if it's too much maybe it should be closer to the shape. Does it look like it would hurt or anything? :psyduck:

Do you mean the texture on the base, or the texture on the shaft? Because I personally love all of the texture everywhere. The interesting and uniquely textured shaft is what drew me to this design, and if it were more subtle / blended, I don't think it'd be that exciting, or that it'd be that interesting to me.

I just hear people complaining about other designs being too textured and making them raw, and I was worried mine was just weird and not comfortable looking but If you say so lol

I think it depends on the person. Some people are more sensitive and dislike texture, whereas others (like myself) find more plain toys boring and bland. I would complain with greater frequency (and have a greater chance) to complain about a toy with little or no texture than I would over the toy being "too textured". So it really just depends! I don't think it's possible to make a toy that everybody likes or will enjoy, as everybody is different and likes different things.

I agree .... One can not make something that pleases everyone . I like it textured by Mary or Bob may not. Stay true to your idea of design ,if others like it ... Great . if not it was not for them . some like fords , other cvhevy ... You can not make a "forhevy" . stay true to what you sent to design . I personally like it and would still buy it .

I think the texture people are referring to is the printer texture, not the texture of the toy's design. Crackers (esp in small) has a really sandpapery texture just from printing that wasn't smoothed as much as it should have been. Design texture us always a hit! :widesmile:
