false dormer (eyebrow shape)?

I am looking to add some architectural relief to my roof (needs to be reshingled anyway). I want to construct a false eyebrow dormer on my roof. How do I frame this? Dormer roof is curved radius, how do I sheet this and shingle it? Roofline of dormer will be arched, height of the arch will be 18 to 20" max. width of the dormer at the base will be approx 6'.
Any ideas or better yet any sketches or drawings?
Thanks fo your help

Have covered it or sheeted it with 1/4"ply this will make the bend a little glue and another 1/4" on top of that. If code put another 1/4"on . Most of the ones I have done we used copper to cover it hope it helps ED
