    @KeeganS That's fantastic. How long did they take?

    If I focus solely on working on it, half hour on average to do one. I usually have netflix or youtube on while I'm working on these so i may pause to enjoy what's on for a moment.
    That includes drawing out the lines then going over it with the wood burner. Figuring out/choosing a design beforehand is another story because I'm trying not to do any repeats and that is definitely more of a challenge than I originally thought.

    It all comes from experience drawing. I have a video on here and Youtube showing how I work on wood burning tamas. Not a true tutorial, just a time lapse video.

    @KeeganS I had a look at the vid. I like the playing card trick, clever.

    Me too. I had a hard time controlling the height of where I have my pencil when scoring the lines and used some cards one day and it hit me how much control the deck gave me with the amount of cards used

    Here are a few more "low poly" versions from Christine. (Check here for her Instagram.) There was actually a Chinese manufacturer trying to buy Fractured Sun. They were very persistent even though I had told them it was already sold. :rolleyes:

    We were at an event the other day and one of our players, Brittany Erika Joson, brought in some original art kendama stickers. Interestingly the 8-bit disappeared the quickest, I'm kind of partial to the takoyaki myself.

    I'm afraid the links I provided are the only thing I know about them. The Ken Blood link takes you to Rakuten which is a sales site.
