To do a graphic that was spurred in part by cbullitt and part by McGoo – I tried to find a needle.  Not just any needle but a cool looking one.

Alas, unless you want to steal one, you have to use crappy pics as photo-fodder.  And I didn’t want to do that.  I wanted an antique needle (hypo).   So what is to be done?  Don’t got a time-travel device, obviously, since Hitler didn’t go away – that option is out.

So I’m modeling one.  Here’s the initial model.  Next put some knurling on it.  Then import it into blender and do a raytrace.  THEN pull it into gimp and post-process it.  Simple, no?
