wow. the details are a little indistinct but it's really nicely done. it'd be amazing if the girl and horse were just a bit easier to seperate, and i don't think the halftone adds anything. otherwise awesome.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I see some mixed feelings on the halftone... I thought it looks good without, but the background kinda makes it "pop" a little more.

As far as the details being "hard to separate"... I tried everything, trust me, but with such a limited pallet, I'm not sure what can be done. Hopefully it can be appreciated even though some people might have to look twice at it to see what's going on.

i dont think you need the halftones behind the image. something else back there might be cool.

Funny Leon commented here, because I thought this was him for half a second when i saw the design, lol. Agree with Leon regarding the half-tones, at least less of them and smaller...

Amazing idea, I too had trouble distinguishing all the pieces of the girl and horse but I kind of thought that was your intention, to make the whole design blend together but on second look, you see all the distinctions between objects.

cool design, halftone is a bit too much, imho, but very good!! :)

After the third look you can see both figures nicely and I like the halftones it helps it to have more of a burlesque feel.

I would only change the colour of the horse leg to yellow like the rest and that could help to separate the girl from it.

Good work there!

Alright! So the halftone is too much seems to be the consensus... am I able to upload a version without it... or is this it?

Thanks for the compliments on my style... if you want to see more of my work, visit my DeviantArt http://nosredna1313.deviantart.com/

great! you got my 5!)

really really nice 5$

so to your question, normally this is it, but if you make some big change in your design you can upload it for scoring again, but i don't think that remove the halftone is a big change (you can see it on my monkey design, i uploaded it twice, first version and than a really revised version.)

i would be very very interested in some step by step pictures how do you made this design. :)

Thanks!

Actually... it'd be the most boring & amateur tutorial if I ever made one. EVERYTHING but the sketch was done with a 4px hard brush in Photoshop, larger brush just to fill in large areas of color. What WOULD probably be interesting to see is my vectorizing process of an image like this... that's actually a little more complex. What you're seeing here is 100% Raster, but if it went to print I would vectorize it.

MajorM

You kidding me... you did this only with a 4px brush in photoshop without illustrator or any vector program? How did you get that clean lines? It looks like you totally did this with an vector program... :)

I tried drawing with a wacom tablet in photoshop but how it's possible to get THAT clean lines and that clean style?

(Sorry for my bad english.)

Yep, just the brush, that's it... no pen tool or anything else... linework like this would take SOOO long using such tools and would lack personality.
