Love is a Bumpy Road - Scoring Ended - thanks to those who voted

02/04/13


Sub finally went up :D Yay! heheh I was driving myself nuts hoping it would up up the 2nd half of last week. But Dan's been doing a great job of filtering stuff it must have taken longer to get to my submission.


Anyways it's up and if you all would like to vote or comment it would be much appreciated!
It's a bit of a new style for me... I started playing with the tablet in photoshop more and using the Frenden pencil brushes (which I really sort of love) I'm still having difficulty with the inking brushes in not getting a smooth "inked" line but I really love the simple and pretty effects of the pencil.

THE FINAL VERSION - Slightly smaller palcement on the shirt as suggested...

Any thoughts before I set this up on a submission template?
I was going for the super cute simple sketchy look.. :D


Text? No Text? Too Simple?

Great idea and cute design. Text is needed. I like the spokes but I would probably like them more if they were gray, or even black, so that they would be more subdued.

i think 'ride' fits better here.

Hahah did you guys see my file names from flickr? lol

Some images are called "Love is a bumpy road" and some are "Love is a bumpy ride" I wasn't sure which way to go. I was kind of playing off of the phrase "Life is a bumpy road" which is why I went with road. But maybe Ride is more apropos? since it's a bike?

Twiggyhall

I think ride is better, too

Good call, Nestor :)

Ride fits better, otherwise you are blaming the road (other people outside the relationship, for how bumpty it is) by saying Love is a bumpy ride you aknowledge that a relationship might have it's up and down but it's still work the try . . (sorry, kind of got really into the message there)

no totally I completely appreciate it :D thats why I do these blogs. Critiques help alot.. especially when I'm on the fence myself over details. I'm totally into the message and want it to come off the way I'm trying to get it to. Ride fits better hehe I'll fix it. No worries! I appreciate all the help.

Now I just have to try to finish my East meets West sub. I got sidetracked with this since I was feeling "inspired" lol

Looking good. I might make the placement slightly smaller. Besides that, I think it is good to go.

pyr4lis

Thanks. I'll tweak the size a little bit on the submission template and get it sent in. :D

I appreciate your help and critique... and everyone else who took the time to look and comment too!

I agree with the placement being slightly smaller- but its the large bike that is bothering me, not the text above it :) If you could make the bike a little smaller on the shirt I think it would be better. Anyways I really love the design.

Blogs are a bumpy road, so much spam

pyr4lis
pyr4lis profile pic Alumni

Haha yeah.. So much trash in the blogs these days. Seriously... between the spam posts about battery chargers and hacked movies :p it's almost ridiculous.. If it wasn't so obnoxious

thank you!

So I got a 2.98 ... I had hoped perhaps this might be my first 3.0 but whatever :) It still seems like a good score even with the lack of zeros to pull it down.
