I have spoken with my student, he says he'll get back to me. It depends on the item - some are tagged and others are placed in cealed clear bags with labels.

Ought to have a response for you tonight/tomorrow.

just a suggestion - could the gun be laying on an oak table/floor or something more realistic than the chosen back ground?

I don't yet know what else you can put in this image. Maybe a medal or something of fallen soliders.

Maybe even an RCMP officers badge - something so horrible people will surely react

ok my RCMP source, says that your TAG is actually more detailed than what they would use when collecting information. The only suggestion he said to make it more realistic would be in the AGENCY section write RCMP/GRC but frankly I prefer Special X there.

My suggestion was to create a STAMP that could say RCMP/GRC either in a circle stamp or a straight text stamp that could be stamped onto that tag. Entirely up to you.

Basically what you have there is awesome my contact says.

I can photograph my sidewalk out here and use that instead of the current background.

I love the idea of putting a stamp on the evidence tag, what about that RCMP seal that TBLightning found? I could put it in one corner and make it look like it was printed on the card.

Also on the card, I think I'm going to X in the boxes for DNA and fingerprints too, considering the gun is splashed with blood.

I'll get these together sometime this afternoon. Thank you for the help, and thank your student for me too!

Edited to add:

What about the color of the tag, keep it red or change it? I thought about a yellowish color but it looked like a shipping label. :)

Also, should I put more engravings on the gun?

I like the gun as it is - subtle and not over done. The color of the tags are red he tells me so you are fine in that way. Sure tick away. Putting the gun in a life like environment will certainly portrait the realism of the image idea.

I used a photograph of a seam in the neighborhood street for scale...

How's this:

the street adds realism, now to work on the blood shading - needs to be darker and try to have a variation of texture. Sorry dude to give you so much work, but I am sure this is only building your skills

might you be able to find a piece of road with a yellow dotted lin or something to try as well?

Not a problem. Here is one with darker, textured blood. I kept the texture subtle because I didn't want to go too far in the other direction.

I also pushed the blood into the seam in the road a little.

The yellow line thing is a bit more difficult... In Dallas County the drivers like to play a little game call "Kill the idiot standing in the road with a camera." To get a yellow (or white) line I would have to use a main road... which is where they play that game. :)

Now if it was just dodging cars it wouldn't be so bad, but after the first few miss they start working in teams to distract you. If that doesn't work they start shooting. :)



BTW, I couldn't get the logo to fit. Once I shrink it down to the right size it loses so much detail that it looks like an ink stain.

I know you mentioned that you'd played with the blood. I am thinking that if you darkened some spots it would give more realism to it.

As for playing Frogger - I suppose you will just have to get Strong man powers or NEO Matrix abilities to stop the on coming traffic if you should care to take on such a grueling task for the sakes of Slade.

Technical question... How do I make the image larger for viewing?

Thoughts?

It's larger when we click on it. Or do you want it real-size in this thread?
