Re: Old Relative

i like the idea, but i'm crazy about the brown background (but i don't have a creative brain to suggest an alternative).

This is awesome! I've always been a huge fan of archeopteryx, and the colors really pop!
It might have been nice to see it on a brighter shirt color - one that might be more reminiscent of a spring day at the bird feeder, but it's not a deal-breaker for me.

Yeah, the drab brown really clashes with the brighter colors. Baby blue or royal would match the colors much better and simulate the sky in the background.

This has my vote, but I do hope you try resubbing on another shirt color - the use of color in the design itself is perfect.

Re: Old Relative

I love the colors on this! Also the concept is great, I have always loved the look of the archeoptryx (or however you spell it)

Agree with a few posters above, the brown isn't my favorite shirt color on this, but I am not sure what would be a good alternative. Perhaps royal blue or sky blue.... I don't generally like sky blue shirts, but it might make the colors stand out really well against it...

Definitely don't use yellow, heather gray, black, cranberry, or green. Well, black might be ok if you change the birdfeeder to a lighter color, and probably the outlines too

Thank you for the opinions, I uploaded it on another shirt color (baby blue) over here:

I like this design. I think the problem that people may be having with the shirt color is being caused by the purple color. It's pretty similar in value and saturation to the shirt color. I hope you don't mind but I did a quick overpaint with a different color to show what I'm saying

I'm a bit of a paleo-geek, so I love this. I actually don't mind the brown background, but I'm horrible at choosing the colors for my own shirts.

Awesome concept! Absolutely love it. I looked at the version on blue and I prefer it on the brown.
