Re: Defying Gravity


Was waiting for something like this. Physics geeks and musical theatre geeks should hang out more.

Would possibly like it more without the fence and ground portion. I think it would be a tighter design.

I was thinking skateboarding when I decided to design this one. The bottom portion is supposed to be the top of a halfpipe and a fence behind it, she's using her broom for a skateboard.

I wasn't sure how it was going to play like this, or if the idea would work without the bottom portion.

Odysseyroc, very nice! The witch shredding the half pipe is a great concept and expertly executed!

My only criticism (minor one) would be the harsh edges at the bottom of the design. The sharp corners and edges steal focus from the witch.

Good Luck!

Yeah, that was another choice that I went back and forth on. I tried it several different ways, and with ragged edges or whatever, it kind of distracted me from the more graphic style that I was trying to achieve here. Maybe I'll wake up in the morning tomorrow and the perfect solution will hit me like a flash of lighting. More likely I'll figure it out on Thursday afternoon, when the new derby is announced.

Ahhh...I get it now. I feel dumb. I was grumbling before about how the ground looked like wood. I guess that was probably a big hint. Still, I don't know how I feel about a half-pipe across my stomach.

I had better start doing some sit-ups in advance of next Friday.

Lol! Gotta have this if it prints. There are SOME folks who might think it's all too appropriate for me, but...

I agree with smirksy. Also, the head is awkward. Just need a ponytail with the hat covering her face?
