Asphalt actually might work really well for this. Really cool concept, Infinityloop!

I'd buy an "evolution of man" style shirt. I think it was mentioned earlier on.

That looks so neat. I can't wait to see what he does with it too!! Definitely going to keep an eye out for this one.

I'd like some opinions on whether I should keep the notes or go without (any other suggestions are always welcome too:





Thanks!!!

Honestly, I do to. But I just want to make sure I'm not missing a good opportunity to have the smoke interact with the music.

But the notes feel forced.

what if instead of smoke you just had notes coming out of the pipe, likes its going into one and coming out the other. i would probably make the notes a bit smaller too.

I think I prefer sans-notes too. I would also like to see the edges of the smoke be less sharp, but maybe you're still finessing that anyway. I don't like that little "tail" at the upper right, the shape is bugging me for some reason.

Cute robot!

Someone may have already said - but make the smoke curl into note shapes. Also - have the negative space in the smoke (holes) be note shaped - so you go both ways in having notes in the smoke.

This is AMAZING. I love this design! I'm a practicing musician, and the blend of musicians and old-school music formats on this is perfect! Great colors too!

Any color preferences??








Seeing your post of questioning color made me think this - take the blue image from the top part of your post, put it in place of the gray in the lower left, and put all 4 on a red t-shirt. Your image/idea is cool, but putting on a shirt multiple times - cooler!

This looks killer as a shirt, and in a just world it will bypass the derby and print tomorrow.

Man - this would be awesome as a glow-in-the-dark shirt! Too bad Woot doesn't allow specialty inks very often.

I was hoping that someone is still awake here. This is only part of my design but I was wondering if there is enough here to make out that it is a record.

Thanks Chump, I wish the derby voters were as supportive of me, as the folks in the pre-derby threads.

Late night design strangeness... any good? Or skip?
On grass or maybe heather gray. Or not at all.

hey seed, i love this drawing and i almost feel bad saying anything because you stayed up so late but i think the cassette tapes are a bit dark, i think they could use a little more lighting up, and some more contrast. other than that, this is great! cant wait to vote for it!

EDIT: i think if you just make the cassette/dogs bodies the same lighter grey as the walkman it would work.

I agree, and thank you for your candor. It's a bit muddy to me, and I think i need to step away from it for awhile and come back to it. Cheers!

First, love the design and concept... Not only would it get my vote, but I could see myself wearing this shirt often. It has a lot of character to it...

I would mix up the colors a little bit. The greys being used bring down the personification level a little bit.. makes it seem still and cold rather than lively...

For the tapes, maybe use the greys for the whole thing, with halftones in the ribbon window for contrast? I think it would make the headphone/leashes and the ribbon feet pop more? With the tapes/ribbon feet/headphones sharing a lot of the same brown, it makes that side feel heavy.. Also, if you did that, you could use the browns for the ribbon in the window, eliminating the need for the purple, giving you another color you could use to make it feel less cold...

For the player, maybe switch the brown and grey.. making grey the button section and the brown more of the body. Maybe leaving the arms and legs grey though with a slight halftone transition.. as though the arms grew out of it? Do the tape side first though, as you might be right back to one side having a different weight than the other...

Final thought... on seeing this, it reminded me of the Yellow SPORT Walkman I used to have in the day, with the outdoor activity, etc.. If you did free up a color with the tapes, maybe giving the walkman a main color would really make this jump?

Once again, I love the concept, drawing, and execution so far.. I'm just feeling like the tweaking the colors would bring you a lot further. Best of luck...

Here's what I came up with

Or

It's a simple story of boy meets girl, or cassette meets compact Disc, and they fall in love only to find out that their parents are in a feud with one another over superiority.
