Re: Atomic BBQ


I don't feel like I'm "qualified" to say anything, but thought you might like to hear something from somebody rather than nothing from anybody. ;-)

The colors in this design make it hard to look at, and actually hurt my eyes. Maybe if you were to try and use colors that compliment each other more. It's quite a challenge, for me, to be limited to only 6 colors - but I've seen amazing designs that only consist of one or two colors. Using the color of the shirt to the design's advantage really helps with that factor.

As for this design itself; there is something lacking... (I feel the same way about my own designs, so don't take this the wrong way please). Simple is a good thing, but sometimes small details go a long way. I would tell you what I think it needs, but I haven't figured that one out for myself yet.

I sure would like to be able to make a design like THIS

*sigh* Someday...

I feel the same way. This design was my speed over quality thursday night design for a noon friday submission. It is still rather plain. My biggest problem has always been the details, but I am working on that. I tend to get the gist of the design and call it done, when I should really spend more time adding the details to finish it off.

I really like the shirt you linked. It's designs like that that I pull new ideas from. I know how to do the things done in that shirt, but I would have never thought to combine each detail together to get that overall look. The same goes for someone like Draxx, who uses techniques I know how to do, but does them in a way I wouldn't have thought of.

I am going to have to start doing a design every week where I just go above and beyond, and do something out of the box for me. That way I force myself to think outside the box. Right now I do a thursday speed type design, then a second one where I actually spend a bit more time, but use basically the same train of thought. Next week my second design is gonna be something new.
