Just a bit of fun with some white and black vinyl on an old worn out puzzle from my collection.
I've no idea, if it's been done before - my apologies if it's in the wrong forum.

I'm not sure what the official Shepherd pattern is, but this will suffice. I was hoping it would make the Skewb extremely difficult to solve. It's certainly more confusing, but not quite as much as I hoped for.

I also experimented with Shepherd style arrowing on a Pyraminx but with radial arrows rather than horizontal and vertical arrows. In this case, 2 faces would have outward arrows and 2 faces have inward arrows. I only got as far as a rough mockup using masking tape and a felt tip pen. It still seemed quite trivial, so I didn't bother taking it any further.

Oh man, that's mind-boggling to me. Well, since i've never really held a skewb before, a skewb is mind-boggling still. Nonetheless, excellent job with the stickers. I haven't seen this before, so i'd say you're the first to make a shepherd skewb.

I've never been able to solve these things. The maze, the shepherd cube, now this. Very nice.

I really like how the arrows on the middle are thicker. :D
