Another nice illustration. not sure if they can print that close to the edge and neckline, but it'd look wrong if the lines ended anywhere else.

Oh snap, it's up already? That's like a 10 hr waiting period...
Anyway, had the drawing for something else, didn't work out, so I tweaked it to might fit the comp.
Birds and plane are undetailed/dif color to get em to pop and relate together separate from pole/tree.
Grass is there because it looked hell-a stupid just floating.
yeah grayehound, if they can't print to edges, I'm not sure what could be done.


The compositon and detail do a great job
focusing our attention on the utillity pole.
Yellow is good at grabbing attention
which ends up making the grass, birds,
and plane compete with the pole. My
suggestion is to substitute a cool color
with the yellow ( a warm color ). Light
blue would do the trick with the plane
and birds. I'm not a fan of the grass.
I thought it was text at first glance.
Maybe a contoured brown line of varying
thickness to represent the ground.

I really like how your design expresses
how man can dominate nature ( wires
and plenty of attachments ) for his
benefit without destroying it ( the tree
is still alive since its roots are alive
and kicking ).

Great design, danrule !


By the way, I like the design's
placement and how the locations
of the ends of the wires are not
floating in the air. They made
it to the edge of the viewable area
on the front.
