I am looking for a graphic designer/illustrator to generate a partially-scaling graphic which will be printed on a sheet of fabric. The fabric will wrap around a rectangular foam padded "sword" as a cover. The purpose of the graphic is to give a relatively thick object a fabric cover which conveys a more narrow and realistic appearance. In other words, I'm looking to visually shape something that is similar to a 3D rectangle into something more similar to a "2-dimensional" medieval sword using shading, contouring, or other visual techniques. The fabric area covers the "blade" only. The fabric will likely be sewn down one major edge seam instead of two or more seams. Some allowance will be required for the seams. Color should be RBG/Adobe RBG and pure metallic colors should be avoided as unfeasible. File should ultimately be producible in a PNG, JPG, or flattened TIFF file.
For the most part, the blade width and depths(flat) will not change. Only the blade length will change. Prototype blade is 30 inches long, blade flat 3 inches wide, and blade edge approximately 1.5-1.6 inches wide.
Please see attached graphics. As you can see from the attached graphics, the current state of my hobby is rather crude and should be easy to improve upon. The ultimate goal is to convert some of the thousands of swords currently used in my hobby to look a little more realistic than merely having a blue or black cover.
