I did some custom cue renderings for a few members of the German billard-aktuell (http://www.billard-aktuell.de) forum recently. What do you think about it?

Well, thanks for your nice compliments. :D I did these with Paint Shop Pro 9. Yeah, it took me some time to attain this quite acceptable result. While working out the sketch of my own future custom cue I could practice a little bit.

...there are some more renderings I have made. One of the first two was supposed to realize but it broke my tight budget a little... ;)

Very nice work, especially using a lower-end software like Paintshop Pro. You may have gotten youself some jobs doing things for cuemakers on here.

Well they may want you to make electronic versions of their cues or work with customers to create a visual to use. Pictures work nice on already made cues but when explaining how something should look, unless you are a good artist, can be tough. These pictures can help someone see what a cue would look like before the first cut is made on actual wood.

Yes, you're right, of course. When I mailed Kenny my renderings, he said so, as well. Actually most renderings I did for billard-aktuell (http://www.billard-aktuell.de/modules.php?name=Forums) members to show them how their cues may look like.

If any cue maker wants me to do something for him, feel free to contact me.
