I've been trying to make a few fantasy-like sinks. Comments? Critiques?

Those would also make nice tray lids.

A slight drop shadow would be nice.

I'm not sure how to do a drop shadow. Are there tutorials anywhere?

Here are a few more.

Are you going for historically accurate or fantastical?

The problem with historically accurate sinks comes with the whole idea of indoor plumbing. Sinks didn't really switch from basic tubs and fancy bowls until the last century. Drain plugs were also usually on the front side of the sink so it could be emptied into a bucket.

You might want to take a look at some "farmer's sinks" or apron-front sinks. They're mostly deep square or rectangular white ceramic, but some are copper. I think they might give you a suitable fantastical feel, and might even pass for historic, even with a center-bottom drain.   

Good luck. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

There are some great tutorials in the Tips forum.

I usually use "Outer Glow" from the Layer Style options in Photoshop CS. I don't have any hard and fast settings, though. I just tweak it to suit each piece. Just remember to change the "glow" from yellow to black!
