Re: Trio of Takoyaki


Takoyaki is basically japanese fried octopus (technically it can be grilled too but for this I went with fried).

(Also, the colors are bright like on the shirt, not faded like the background image. That was a weird mistake on my part. ^_^*)

Five colors on royal blue, thanks for looking!

They look tasty, and I've never had octopus.

So cute! ^^

I'm not so sure about those blue lines ending so abruptly at the ends, though. I think they'd be better if they were faded in and out.

How about curving the ends, like this?

Feel free to use my suggestion! ^^

I actually did spend time messing with those lines so that they weren't so abrupt. But after everything I just wasn't happy with them. Probably because I had a specific shirt that I used to have in mind that I liked a lot and it had lines very similar to this. Oh well. I don't want to re-sub because I think I'd end up just losing votes. But I will keep your suggestion in mind for future entries! Thank you for the feedback!! ^_^

I like the cute octopi but not too fond of the stripes. I wonder if you replaced them with bubbles if that might look better. maybe even making them boiling oil bubbles?

Bubbles is something I hadn't thought of before. Darnit, now I wish that I had because I like that idea. That may have been worth re-subbing for but I don't have time to re-work it. *sadface*

I've done quite a few other designs that either flew under the radar or just weren't quite good enough design-wise as I'm still learning how to make a good t-shirt design. I think you can check past derbies. I've been entering as much as I can over the last couple months. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm!!

Walmazan - I adore your work so a comment from you is fantastic. Thank you!

For some reason, I want to eat these. They just look like tasty little morsels to me.
