I'm not sure what's going on with the colors here. There's black ink on the big image, but on the shirt template there's no black ink? Unless I'm not seeing this right...

Re: The Illusionist


This is a just a notice that the shirt color you're using doesn't quite match the color from the swatches provided in our templates. It may be just a subtle change, but please check to make sure you have the latest templates and use the colors provided.

I think the shirt is black so it's negative space.

Ah. Yeah, it looks much closer to asphalt than black to me.

Re: The Illusionist


Not much of a rework of your midcentury modern design submission, and I'm still convinced your main character is simply a trace of an image. I'd be willing to guess if anyone spent some time looking a character from a movie or poster that had a tophat and a cane, they'd find your source.

No. Yes.

Hey just wanted to say thanks for the awesome feed back. Oh and no this is not from some movie poster or cover, but by all means you go right a head an look at every movie poster, cover ect. that you want. And best of luck to you in the derby.

Re: The Illusionist


This is not bad, but the opacity and sharp edges of the shadows doesn't gel well with the thickly brushed background you have going on. If you blend them in as the shadow recedes it'd look more natural.

The halftone shading on the figure also seems kind stylistically out of place since the background dominates so much of the image, and is rendered in a completely different manner. And shouldn't there be some light on his face, his arm holding the cane, his hand, etc?

Re: The Illusionist


Really cool design, though the shadow coming off of his right leg going left is incorrect (doesn't extend to his foot). Unless he's got a stumpy left leg, but then other shadows don't work, so I dunno.

Definitely had to stop and admire it to take it in. Great collab.
