Thanks for the feedback

I love love love the Jaws idea- maybe with a sunrise or moon backdrop to keep the tee color the same?

Good idea. That will help it be a lot easier to print.

Version 2 - Very very rough vectoring

A lot of work to be done. I already hate the line work compared to my original sketch.

bortwein
bortwein profile pic Alumni

are there any good sun rise over water illustration out there that I could learn from for doing that part on my design?

ChrisDB

Concept 1, version 1!!! Looks amazing!

Manupix

Wouldn't that concept work better with one of those "italian" machines with a lid that opens jaw-like?

ok, that is the low res sketch. I will have to figure out a way to make a higher res rough drawing version of the idea so it feels the same.

ChrisDB

Honestly, I think it looks better without the vectoring.

ChrisDB

That sketchy boat looks so cool! The vectored version looks sterile to me

Pyne

Spitballing thoughts- good God I want this shirt.

Maybe the sun only above the horizon in graduated ombré lines like you did on the pot? Dunno if that would throw the weight off and take away from the pot, though.

Also dont know if there's a way to work it in, but maybe a liiiittle shooting star (for the Jaws nerds).

Agreed. I hate to lose all that work I did last night but I'll probably try to redraw the whole thing by hand so I can get a closer finished product to the original sketch concept.

Shopped but I like the feel of this one-

I redrew the Boat over my lunch and it came out pretty nice.

and the Pot

The latest boat and pot are looking really nice :) - much better than the vector ones

ChrisDB

Love the new boat!

Thanks. I'll keep working on it tonight and hopefully pull this one off in time to submit it. Not sure about the sunrise part of the design but we will see what happens once I get these drawings put together on a high res art layout.

Ok I am working out the drawing style art but I had a Quick layout question:
Should I go with the 1st layout with the White Upper?
or go with the 2nd "Layout" with the Sunrise?

Manupix

Sunrise.

Also the layout might be more dramatic with big waves and pitching boat.

ChrisDB

I do like the white and brown of the first layout. But I'm worried about the way it 'splits' the tee. It just looks a bit odd having 3/4 the shirt brown I think. Could the brown not extend all the way to the bottom and across the tee?

Picture the lower half of the sunrise you have as bigger, brown and with less defined edges. More fading out. It's not really a sunrise but just the area that is brown to visualise the coffee ocean.

This is a test of my coffee drawing in a mug shape on a brown tee.

ChrisDB

Looks great! I only think the 'grain' size of the texture is a little too big on the pot

Pyne
Pyne profile pic Alumni

YES!

I'm not sure I'm a fan of the pale yellow bits extending past the sun on either side, but I love how it's looking!

Seriously, I need this shirt.

Ok. Not sure how well I can adjust the Grain texture size. I end up scaling the file I have that makes it each time and then It ends up just a little different each time. I'm lazy. :-\<br>
Consider those pale yellow bits on the side of the sun gone. Just for you. :-)

Anything else I should attempt or need to fix before I submit this?

Switching it up. I haven't gotten a selected print using Dantastic yet. Plus I love the crazy hyper over caffeinated look that Joe has in that photo.
