The mail carriers and other deliver people can never find my parents front porch. Packages get left most everywhere. My dad asked for me to wood burn a sign for his birthday, with a tree on the side and an arrow.
I drew the arrow and letter and they all matched stylistically...but then when I drew the tree, I made it too detailed (that's how I draw...), and I fear it draws attention away from the arrow and the two styles match.
I can't really undo anything, but I'm wondering if there's a way to make the arrow and tree match better.
It keeps uploading upside down. I'm posting it twice in case one of them is right side up!
I think the sign looks great the way it is, but if you want to connect the tree to the font you could try treating one (or more) of the tails on your lettering or arrow the same way you drew the branches on your tree. Just take care that they look branchy and not feathery.
I don't think the tree takes away from the rest of the sign. It's absolutely gorgeous and will draw the attention of any delivery person who dares come within 80 feet of it!
If you wanted the arrow to be a bit more obvious, could you just fill in the first gap of the arrow head, the one between the outermost bit of the arrow and the next one in? Kinda like this:
"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
First I will say that it is lovely! But you did ask for ideas... so here goes. To me, the arrow looks as if a wind is blowing it, but the tree looks as if it is totally calm. Since the arrow is "sending" the delivery man in a direction, the "wind" feeling seems appropriate and a good thing. Is there any way you could add that same sense of movement to the tree?
