First, I’ve got to send out some mad respect to Yimbo for beating me to a badass Candy Cane design this season, and being an inspiration to me for all of the rest of his original content as well. Rock on, man! I also need to mention that this design would not be what it is, had I not totally stolen his idea of using a diamond element to complete the framing of this piece.
In the making of this GIF, I learned that it is really hard to get certain radially symmetrical elements to look even half decent when you view them from a front view and expect them to have bilateral symmetry as well. I failed at getting the alignment to look right a frustrating number of times before I found this one that I’m finally happy with.
