Genii Backs

Postby Chris Aguilar » July 4th, 2019, 5:17 pm

Was playing around and am genuinely on the fence about whether I like these or not. Of course, this is just for fun, they're not official or endorsed or anything like that. Call it fan art. :mrgreen:

They look good to me. You've put in a lot of work.

Thanks!

It might look complex or like a lot of work, but (due to a lot of practice creating various backs) this one took less than an hour to put together. And most of that was making sure the seamless pattern worked correctly.

The all-over back designs are not viable because they are one way. That can't be avoided because of problems with registration control.

Yeah, pretty unavoidable unless one wants to throw down a bunch of cash to carta mundi or someone with the proper quality control right? Hah, now that they own USPCC, perhaps they'll tighten up their quality control for bikes.

I think if the pattern is a bit more complex/busy (like this one, as opposed to a bee type back) the registration problems might be a little less obvious.

I've always like the look of an overall bee type (or any nice pattern) back, even though I don't ever really use 'em.
