Looking really good. I like the Gray-scaling a lot but some elements are getting lost or unrecognizable. Adding emphasized light sources has created a new/better atmosphere. Continuing working with the lighting/adding a little color could help with recovering the lost elements.

Nice, I agree with Musarter, the new version is too dark it`s hard to see everything. You should play with the lightning a little bit more.

Definitely add in limited color. Maybe do an image search for vintage magic show/side-show posters. Get some inspiration from the color palettes that were used.

Agreed, the pure black and white is too complicated visually to be identifiable without seriously reworking the light sources, but I can see how the brightly colored version isn't really working for a t-shirt either. Some slight coloration (I like Eric's vintage idea) would look awesome!

Also, the way the color just "stops" is really awkward. There's a lot of ways to fix that. You could go with a gradient bleed-off of the color, you could do a vintage "flaking off" of the color, you could find a way to close off the line art... hope this helps!

This is all kinds of awesome!

However there is something in the shading gradients that turns me off: I don't think they fit the style, there's too much of them and they're all the same all across the piece.

Unfortunately I have no idea for a fix :(

Just now saw this. No offense to anyone else I have worked with but this probably my favorite collab. The amount of time and effort you put in truly showed. I was stunned it didn't print and I'm thrilled you are redoing it.

Little update, also added the line art.

I can see the amount of work behind it but I think they are just too much elements in it, nothing really stands out, even if that's the point. It looks better in black and white, the color palette was too wide in the first one.

moInk

I agree with c-royal. the problem is that there are no elements that really stand out. you could propably play with light and shadows a little more to make the things in the front pop out... a next thing is texture. your lineart looks cool but when its colored it seems to be too clean, almost like plastic. lighter front, darker back, not all elements in front of the main characters, and texture could possibly make it a great piece pretty easy (not too much extra effort...)!

Another massive delay. I'm kind of done with the grayscale image. Next I'll add reflections of light sources with colors.

I really think, this, as with other shirts that this type of design is just too complicated for a t-shirt no matter how it's done. Having to study it to appreciate the artwork just isn't for me. Great for other applications. Would make a great poster.

I agree it's a little complicated but that was kind of my goal. I wanted the battle to end all battles with each competitor pulling out every trick in their book. I went a little overboard with my ideas but I could not be any happier with the result. It was without a doubt my most in depth and challenging idea and Ersin knocked it completely out of the park and blew away even my most outlandish expectations.

Thanks everyone for the great comments and I can't possibly think you enough for your amazing job on this Ersin. I am very pleased with the score now we just have to hope for the best :/

@mike.rodrick.7: Thanks! I get what you mean, but imo it works on a t-shirt too.

rossmat8: The score's great, now let's wait and see :/
