I never started out with the intention of doing a series

It all started with Dayhiker's Chalice. so a big thanks for that!! The oringinal was a tad small for me, so I stretched it out on the computer to get the "Trekkie Chalice".

From there I squared of the top and sides and added some finger grooves to get the 'Goblet'. Now known as the Opus I

Next came the the 'Alabacore' with a little more support for the fingers. Now known as the Opus II

so I ended up with two great designs that I figured would do me. Heheh but there's something about these bloody slings, that you keep tweaking them. The last two are slight variations of the 'Albacore'. The Opus III and the Opus IV

Opus IV.JPG Opus IV -2.JPG

It wasn't until I was finishing off the last one that I realized I had created a series. Hence the 'Opus series' or Dayhiker's guide to the galaxy!! ;p
The only problem now is choosing which one to shoot!

Looks like you're starting from a Chalice and working toward a Sharpshooter. I like your work a lot, Womby.

Love the design evolution you are taking and the attention to detail on palm swells!
