Re: My Lucky Day
Heyyy. Cool penguins! I like the activity in this design a lot -- as people I'm sure have stated, it's very different from your usual. The overall shape of the artwork is working really well for you. But you seem to be stuck in this imaginary boundary box.
For instance, the height of the meteors is just about the same as the helicopter on the left. What would it be like if you staggered them? Maybe to the same slant degree as the lasers from the robot's eyes? The background is really fun -- the waves are great for the depth you were dealing with -- though, did you try to space things out a little differently?
The mushroom cloud could be larger and billowing up and out of the design instead of competing with all that detail. How would it change the composition if it were fading out into the color of the shirt? Or what if it was larger/higher/wider/etc? The top of the heads of Reptar (I want to call him Reptar) and the robot is at the same level of the top of the mushroom cloud. By breaking that line, you might come up with a more dynamic composition. You might not. Who knows.
Another strange visual discrepancy I came across was the horizon. It's staggered kind of confusingly to me. Lowest on the left, highest in the center, in between those two on the right. It might just be my own preference, but it seems like the horizon should be pretty constant from left to right, even if there are elements moving forward and backward in depth. The hard line from the ship on the right wants to propel the eye straight across to the left, but it's instantly broken because the horizon is uneven.
Fun design, though. The choice highlights are great and the value is, as always, very well distributed. I don't know if comments like these ever get read, but I hope it makes sense and maybe makes someone think of how to experiment with shirt designs in the future.
