Re: Pure air, Crystal water (Version2)


Lagbert suggested I try this on other colors, and although blue wasn't a good match I found that Navy worked very nicely.

In this version I've given the image more contrast and made the characters and layout stand out more. The background redwood trees and underwater weeds are a halftone effect now.

Please vote and comment if you prefer this version! The original design on a green shirt is still here.


Here's a close-up detail:




Thanks for your feedback, :^)

I think it does pop as more earthlike on the navy, but I prefer it in the green; it's a softer presentation, and I like the lighter/brighter shirt. Still, I think it's wonderful either way, and I'll GitMV on both.

Thanks so much! Yes, vote on both, that would be ideal. ;)

I'm not trying to literally represent the planet hanging in space, the blue and green are more intended as symbols of air(/land) and water. The idea is that this version offers more contrast overall and that maybe makes it easier to appreciate the kingfisher and flying fish within the layout.

I do like it on the green too...

Got my vote again! I really like your use of the halftones. The plants have that great ephemeral feeling they had in your rough.

It would be cool to get both versions of this. Get them as a couples set and complete the whole yin yang paradigm

Glad you think so, japanesefrog. I really just present this one as an alternative because it was asked for, and because the other changes made it different enough to be worth a resub.

It's hard to say which of the two I like best, but I would probably want to wear it myself on the original green. (if I were so egomaniacally inclined :p)
