I'm an IT guy, doing an open source project, but my skillset is not in graphics. Can you create a metallic pin, as shown?
- I need only one pin
- The fun part: Make the main line between dark and light (1) a Bezier curve, and point me to the parameter, so that when a dozen of these pins are lined up, I can make a gradual change of the reflection/the apparent lighting, so all pins are not identical which gives a natural look
- I would also like to adjust the shadowy projected rectangle (2) horizontally, for same reason, and (2) points to the darkest example
- I like the shape of the points shown at (3) the best
- I would prefer some curved shadow of (4), but straight shadows of (1) are OK too
I did the main body of the integrated circuit as shown, which shows you the level of realism (and shows you how much of a fail the pins were) - [login to view URL]
