Glad you decided to go with this version. The simplicity is really elegant.

Thanks a lot for your input BootsBoots. Ultimately, I agreed--I felt the line work alone created a better mood than the color.

Thanks also to chumpmagic, Blanked, Saix, thatrobert, paigeg, midgerock, and mindputee for their valuable inputs!

Very cool. I didn't see the other versions mentioned, but I like how this looks.

@violentoceans: I tried lots of different color choices, and while I'm not a huge fan of cream, I definitely felt in the end it gave the design a "parchment" feel, which I think adds a lot.

@markh27: scroll through this thread for other versions, including many with color.

But when all was said and done, this was the version I was most happy with.

Thanks!

Nice illustration, kevlar. (It has a little bit of a Chrono Trigger feel to it) :-)

No problem! And again, this is an extremely clever take on this week theme. I am truly glad to see it doing well!

I'm so glad you went with this version! It made me really happy to read that too! I hope it gets back in the fog, it's really beautiful line art.

Awwww man...I want this to go back into the fog.

I like the line work on the robot and the general steampunk feel, and the brown lines on creme shirt give off a thanksgivingy/home for the holidays feel to me.

I really don't know how the submission guidelines work, but can this be re-subed for the double take derby?

Re: Homecoming


This makes me think of that movie 9...ya know with the robots n stuff. They're not really aesthetically similar but they both give me that same warm fuzzy feeling about the link between a scientist and his creation. I really love this GMV!
