Pay no attention to the title. It's just how I feel. Although there is some light bulb correlation there. Tricky.

It's funny, but it didn't. I was burnt out before I did this. I spent the least amount of time on this design ever. Weird, huh?

Re: Burnt Out

Just a suggestion, boots. I like the dark color of this, but when I think of moths to a flame (light source) I think of it being lighter: pale yellow, bright yellow, white. Something much brighter to give the the full effect. I understand the name of the piece and why it's dark, but I saw you were possibly considering a resub... that's why I'm suggesting this.
It is really good though.

Re: Burnt Out


Bootsx2, somehow you've managed to add your whimsical charm to this as well. Bravo! Also, I like the idea... While I think many designs here are well done, and as an art exercise it's awesome... I have to think about what I would wear on a shirt and this is something I would. I would love a lighter color too if possible. If not, you gmv either way as I love it <3. Rock on Ms DoubleBoots!

I am not a fan of yellow on asphalt (or asphalt for that matter) but w/e you decide Boots. I still would love to see a "lighter" version.

I'm hesitant to post a lighter one now since this one seems to be doing ok. I will say that I did try the yellow on asphalt, and while good in theory (it was my first instinct), it didn't look very good. Maybe later I'll post some different colors in the forum.

Thanks for the support guys!

I like how the colors do make it a subtle design. If you resub, you still gmv. I look sickly in yellow so that's not my first choice. (Even though Lemon is the New Asphalt! ahuhu) Still a great design

I've bought cooler shirts than you.

Change of color might do it for me! GMV on a resub!

Ok, ok, guys. I put some different color options up in the forum here: http://shirt.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=2872157&PageIndex=10&ReplyCount=362#post2875640

If enough people want a resub with a light design on a dark shirt, I'll do it in the morning. Happy now?
