Re: He Wanted to Fly So Badly


I while I've been laid up on the couch from being sick, I watched this show about parasailing (god I was desperate to find something interesting). Anyhow, I wanted to do something with a jellyfish in a new way. Now the starfish seems to be the star of the piece, but the jellyfish and the devil ray both complete the scene.

Enjoy!

Re: He Wanted to Fly So Badly


Being the noob...I had to look up kawaii.

Not going there in any language...no boxing helmet handy!

But for me the colors are rather stimulating.

I am finding that I can get into a shirt for different reasons. I bought the often scoffed collaboration of Boots and Ramy based on color and theme. Here it's color and more color.

I'd feel better if, only 5 hrs after I uploaded, my computer's power supply hadn't just fried itself. ::sighs::

Jaden, I love this one. I think I want to be the little starfish. He looks like he's having too much fun. I was hoping for a really strong entry from you out of this derby, and you did not let me down. The colors, the idea, everything is great.
Now, if I can rally the troops into voting for this and putting into the Fog...

Thanks, A. Rally those troops! My power supply blew up this morning, so I'm running on a lappy right now. Last week was being really ill and since the derby theme wasn't important to me, I slept most of the week. Now the power supply... someone is trying to make my birthday week crappy XP.

but hey... I got a starfish to parasail with a jellyfish and have it all pulled by a devil ray... I'm glad I didn't disappoint in the strong entry area. ;)

This is stunning, JK! The pink and purple may be a bit to feminine for some of the males, but I just love the contrast in this piece.

well it's basically teals and purples. It looks like pink and purple, but those colors aren't that far from one another on the pantone chart... so the 'pink' should look more purple. I've noticed purples are the most difficult colors to work with from photoshop's pantone list to the actual color (I've been doing mardi gras designs for 2 yrs now and it's been amazing how companies don't come up with the correct purples).
