Thanks to a friend who is talented in woodworking, sculpture, and god knows how many other crafts, I am finally creating a custom stick.
I thought instead of the traditional printed artwork, I would cut an electroluminescent plate to size and overlay a couple of printed transparencies on top of it underneath lexan to create a unique glowing design. It would naturally look best in low-light conditions, however it should still look cool even in daylight.
I’m using 3DS Max to design the stick and create the templates, and have so far come up with this design:
That image should be fairly accurate to the overall actual design and look, although I may change it to a pure rectangular case. (The ball top was bubbled, however those took way too long to render. Not sure what happened to the buttons, too lazy to re-render tonight.)

Any comments? Suggestions?
I’ll post any updates to the design/progress as I go along.
