I did a couple of colour options but it was too cramped to include them all on the page click here other colours to see the pale blue and ash version.

damn it! someone has always done something similar, I searched under all mermaid submissions to check no one had done it too. curses! hopefully the style is different enough. sorry about the link, don't know what's wrong with it, try pasting this:

they aren't that different, just an ash and pale blue option. thanks for your nice comments so far.

I think the styles are so different that it doesn't really matter. Great Minds think alike:)

Nice design

Links never seen to work in the description/1st comment, i normally just post them in the comments when the design is through pending.

thanks for the tip, I didn't think it would work but I'm not very techi, I had to get a friend to help.

it is better slightly tilted like the main image, that's what I intended it to be like on the t, it just doesn't show up so well on such a small visual of it.

I actually like this one better than the similar design. gets the sardines reference across better when they're lined up than one mermaid peeking out, in my opinion. and I like the monochrome

Great illustration work- especially on the 3D look of the top of the tin. To have the drawing be more visually interesting, you should move the roll of the tin away from the direct center. I'd suggest it going more towards the left, thus having more of the MERMAIDS word showing. It bothers me that all you see is the MAIDS part. 4

I did try the rolled lid on more of an angle but to reveal more of the word it makes it cover up the end mermaid so I changed it back. I think it's fairly obvious what the rest of the word 'maids' would say, given the visual.

great illustration and colors, I love the water droplets in the bottom of the can.

cute. i like cleavage

ivywillow

I love both of them, but the detail I love on yours is that the can says "mermaids" That is awesome.

the design is the big one on the left. I know the bottom one is hard to see but that's just for an idea of the placement.

Luke...

nice water drops

You'll be pleased to know I'm not going to give you a hard time this sub. Excellent.

I like this idea better than the other one that there is a link to because this one is clear mermaids are in the tin to be eaten while the other one just has a mermaid lying in it. Though I think the mermaids need to be a different colour so that they stand out from the tin more.

truemidge

I love this! Don't really like the idea of anyone packing mermaids up for consumption, but they're so sweet that no one could possibly eat them. Just in case, send me your models and I promise to give them a home free of harm. $5.

Vindemiatrix

I don't think it's certain they're for eating - it could just be that they get stroppy after a certain date! ;)

And "Best before end" is fine, I see that on lots of products.
