You have to vote to get this hot shirt.

If you are a lifeguard at a kiddie pool you can wear it to be cool, and the kiddies can learn the alphabet while splashing you!!!

Re: White Hot Alphabet


It is indeed white hot and I like the color combination. You're going to run into an issue with multiples of letters though, so maybe turn the under layers into solid spirals?

Thanks, but it doesn't matter much; it's too little too late.

They are shadows of the white alphabet. They fused together when I paint bucketed the colors for each layer under the letters. Each of the colors now looks like a worm.

The letters Do Not repeat. The colored spirals behind the white letters are melded together into one shape. But your right - the design background does not match the T. Live and learn.

Each layer has each of the letters, which constitutes repeats. You'd have to eliminate any likeness to letters to get it to survive rejection. ^_^

I'd prove it by showing the layers on my Photoshop design, but I accidently merged my whole design together. I am very new at this, as you can tell. But, I am having fun, and getting good advice. Thanks!

What I mean is by looking at the design I can tell that the shadows are copies of the same layer altered. That's one of the reasons it was rejected. I think even hints of repeated letters will be rejected (see the brown fox entry that got rejected twice).

So, if I had done solid spiral shadows with no indentations it might have made it?

P.S. Everyone - you can vote for my "Apha to Zany" design instead
