Bass guitar custom design - 4 string by PtolemaiosLS
Bass guitar custom design - 4 string
Now taking in consideration I'm posting more guitar related work, I find ok posting a picture or two about my proyects.

this is a 4 string guitar, metal style oriented (as you see from the shape)

laurel body, enzino drop top (9mm thick) MM bridge pickups and P-bass neck pickup, active 3 band-EQ electronics, multilaminated 5 piece neck (not in picture)

I'll post pictures likes this as well as the finished products, it need less than a month this proyect.

(you can order a guitar from me, but I have never made work for someone outside of my country, I'm still more than capable to)

(I sign my luthier work with my real name, PtolemaiosLS is for the drawings)

if you read my last journal, I'm arranging a brony proyect for a guitar I'll craft and I'm gonna giveaway in a contest.


Rainbow Dash electric guitar project (giveaway)
(I would be grateful if you share this journal to pony related websites, I'll do what I can myself)
In this deviantart I'm known as PtolemaiosLS (or just Ptole for short) and I have a brony community project in mind.
I craft electric guitars/basses for a living and I want to craft Rainbow Rocks dashie guitar and give it away on a brony guitar contest (Dashie themed of course), but for that I only have the means to actually craft the guitar, I need a lot of help with exposure of the project, organization of the contest as well as funding.
This will be a real, playable, professional level 6 string electric guitar that I will give away in a music contest.
I will be the one crafting the guitar, but I want it to be a community project, I need to arrange a working team for a better result.
so far I need:

-animator/video editor for the different videos I'll post for the updates & the contest itself (commisioned work of cou
<details in here

for updates, I wanna say the designing stage is close to 80%, I need to get the wood in order to start working on it, I still get to post some designing progress on this dA, later on pictures of the actual process of the build, it's weird to post this on my dA, since that one is mostly for drawing, but it ain't bad changing a bit from time to time, right?.

also, an animator added to my team that might work with me with the proyect for videos, I'm eager to start working with him.

I still need to add a guy or two to my working team, remember this is what I need (copy paste from past journal)

--------------------------
so far I need:

-animator/video editor for the different videos I'll post for the updates & the contest itself (commisioned work of course, I can help with drawings)
-a youtuber for holding and organizing the contest (need to discuss the options on how to hold the contest)
-funding. (paypal: PtolemaiosLS@gmail.com)


If anyone want to offer himself or suggest someone they know, you can send me an email for contact at PtolemaiosLS@gmail.com

that's it, enjoy the sketches giveaway.
RD guitar proyect design stage: body chambering by PtolemaiosLS
RD guitar proyect design stage: body chambering
"Chambering" is when you take your guitar body and make holes in it, later on you glue a wood cover, so you have cavities of air inside the wood, not just a solid slab, with that you win more resonance, a more warm sound and a lighter weight, sometimes its used just as a weight relief.

I need to evaluate this, as an already lightweight wood gets muddy with tonal chambers, a heavy body is recommended some heavy chambering (second pic) and a middleweight body will need less chambering leaving more wood behind (first pic), it all depends on the species of wood I want to use as well as the density of the tree where the slab of wood comes from.

(I'm so used posting this explanations on facebook, where I have my guitar works, for most of you it should be mostly mumbo jumbo, but you are welcome to ask questions)

RD guitar proyect design stage: body shape by PtolemaiosLS
RD guitar proyect design stage: body shape
different body shapes, from the original Rainbow rocks shape, to several adaptations, I'm more inclined to the last one.

My focus is to make the guitar looks authenthic to Rainbow rocks version, but adding ergonomic and modern elements, as the original shape doesn't either balance or feel nice from a guitar design point of view.

and dashie sketch at the final, look quite nice for my surprise.

update: RD was a blanflank for a moment.

perspective practice explained by PtolemaiosLS
perspective practice explained
this isn't an actual tutorial, but an explanation on how I practice perspective, for a more detailed tutorial you can search on dA, there is ton on info about 1, 2, 3 or even 4 perspective point from beginners to advanced. (lol, if you understand perspective, you can have infinite number of focus point and still be a real life scenario)

this might be quite advanced for someone who is not into perspective as much as I do, but you can get an idea on how it mightworks.

I'll update the first full sketch later.

(hey, there is even a category for perspective tutorials, good)
