Hello, I'm trying to figure out how to take the fish scale pattern that I have made (out of ovals) and transform it so that it not only fits the shape of the three sections of the outline, but also that the scales stay aligned with each other once the blue design is wrapped around a real (3D) object.
I'm trying to make a decal to go around a model airplane. This is what the real airplane looked like:
I plan on hand painting the rest of the fish parts, but at 1/144 scale (about 25mm long) the fish scales are a little small to paint evenly!
If anyone would like to play around with the actual .ai file, I've uploaded it to my server:
Thank you for your time and help,
Perfect Jet, thank you! The link to the file was a little messed up, the Adobe site put part of their address on your link, but I figured it out. Thanks for the finished product in the file, but even more thanks for "teaching a man to fish" so that I can use this on other projects as well.
