SUPEREGO VS. the ID

the ID: the animalistic, instinctual dark part of our mind rises up from the depths. we try to fight or contain it with the superego...but sometimes it's just too powerful.



whatever! what started out as a doodle seemed to develop some semblance of meaning...funny how these things work out.



- i'm finally doing something with this design... and good thing, because I could never get it down to 4 colors. it was hard enough to get it to five....it's shown here on pacific blue,- and the blue of the body and tentacle highlights are considered negative space- the shirt itself.

The design would also work on yellow or gold if the yellow was made the negative space, or on a light blue tee if the light cyan was substituted.



for another view of the original sketch, go to my blog SUPEREGO vs. the ID ( to show how it changed and that I didn't just trace a lego image, too)

thanks! hooray five colors!

The composition is perfect, and the colours too. The only thing is that the meaning is too c0omplicated, so maybe it looses strenght. GREAT WORK, anyway!!
