Looks good to me, midgerock. It's often a plus to go with a simpler idea so long as the art is nice and the joke is good n' clear. Which is true here.

@SkekTek, that looks waaay better with the new eyes and the tongue. Very cool. ^_^



Thanks, man! I love it. It's one of my better concepts in a long time.

Are one of the fun things a drop shadow or a jackal in the background? Can't wait to see the final today since I'm a sucker for anything mixing Ancient Egypt and technology!

Now that you mention it, it does look that way! Thanks for the heads-up!

Not a fan of concentric circles on an LP...IMO the line should swirl out to in, but I understand it from a design standpoint.

there are a coupe designs about the cassette tape being tread upon or defeated, but i have to say this is my favorite of them. i like the simplicity of it. if you were gonna change anything i thing you can maybe make him look a bit more sad with the eye brows, but i kinda like his expression now, and i really like how you treated the unspooled tape.

Just for accuracy, WA, there should be a slot in the middle of the cassette's bottom. Although it needn't be added, I always used a razor blade or scissors to cut the tape (maybe instead of the pen).

I really like the little ear horn he is holding to hear the music. I like the inclusion of the notes transitioning from the smoke. My only crit would be that maybe have transition more gradual from smoke to notes as they disperse.

the pen is to roll the tape back into the cassette via the wheels. i used to use pencils cause they grip better but pens worked in a pinch. ;)

The Navy looks EPIC with the green! do the blue! I like it better with the arm too.

hehe, doesnt it all just seem so primitive now? im gonna be sitting down in front of my grand kids someday saying, "when i was young we didnt have these fancy ipodmajigers, we had these things called walk...man's....and they played these other things called cassettes...yes we had to have two things to get to our music! and if we wanted to rewind, we had to find a pencil, yes a third thing, to manually stick into the cassette to wind it back. ahhhhhhh those were the days.....now get off my lap im old."

Just gotta say - this design is much more wearable! I'd wear this, it's great:D Loves the blues and white on baby blue too. My one comment would be move the design just a little higher on the shirt.

Thanks leprechaungirl, I think I'm going with the navy and the arm Final version I think:

I wasn't going to have a shadow because the mummy already had a soft bright outline, but he really needed grounding. Thanks Skek' for the nudge. ^_^

I would like to commend all the designers on this forum from not giving us a reel-to-reel design over the femaleparts...

Notwithstanding, I am going to do on a reel-to-reel design of a more safe nature, but it won't be done until Saturday

I like the concept but it wasn't clear to me at first that the CD is a CD or that the tape was angry until I noticed the tape's clenched hands.

Tentatively titled "Don't Mess With Analog"

(It's not finished really. I got this final idea while scanning - there'll be an mp3 player beneath the LP's feet).

It looks SO much better with the color. Send your obsessiveness a thank-you card.

I have to say, in your original drawing it looked like his bag was transparent and the notes were inside, like the cassettes were leaving little musical surprises all over the sidewalk. I actually laughed at that and thought it was really cute and clever, but now it just looks like a note-patterned bag.

Maybe that was the intention all along, and I was just injecting my own weird sense of humor into your design. Just wondering which was the intended effect.

Here's my first pass at coloring Meg's drawing. I'm waiting to hear back form her, so this may seriously change before it goes up for voting.
