Ramy, I'm so glad to see something like this from you. This is most definitely different. The colors are awesome (the way you've portrayed the light through the umbrella is awesome). Everything is just generally awesome. Great work.

I didn't recognize this as yours at first. I think the use of light and negative space is great. This is several notches above your usual fare, in my opinion.

I'm not completely sure because I did it in a lot of broken-up pieces, but I believe it was something like 5 or 6 hours in all to complete

Thanks everyone for the support on this design, I'm glad that you like it :D

Ha, good show, Ramy. I've got to say I'm flattered. Really, this is stunning work. Very well done.

I'll gladly take the blame for this one, but you take the credit, cuz it's good. Even Adder says so.

And you are definitely a man of your word.

(so do I even have to say that you have my vote? Well, OK......you have my vote, and I'm in for two of these come next Friday!

actually, that was not my intent. Ramy has shown in some of his work a great imagination and artistic potential, and I was eager to see what he would come up with.

I've liked some past work, but really enjoyed his "card design", and knew he was much more capable than designs like "You're Almost There" showed.

And I'm sure this will sell well, it seems to have had a very positive response from both from his regular followers, and also from people that are enjoying seeing a new style from him.

Ramy, thanks for flexing your artistic muscle!

Re: The Open Sea


Gotta agree with the rest of the sentiment. Your two entries last week drove me nuts- they were trite and poorly executed, and it absolutely baffles and frustrates me that they were so successful. BUT then this one, the one with Boots, and the melting heart one are absolutely terrific. I mean, those three are the opposite- they're inspired and very well executed well done.

This is lovely ramyb. The only thing that's throwing me off is the way the spoke of the parasol projects directly from the woman's mouth - it almost looks like a cigarette/cigarello hanging from her lip.

Woohoo! Awesome... black I love ^_^

(Either my monitor or my eyes are going wonky... earlier I was looking at a shirt that was on navy, and I thought it was a dark green)

Anyway, thanks for the clarification, because I'm 100% sold now!

Yeah, I'm more than a little disappointed that this is out of the fog at the moment.

Ramy kind of follows a different path, which is what he's be heckled about for so long, and the shirt cannot get printed. Wow, just wow.
