Re: De Sol


My second entry, and this week was a fun week. I can’t wait to see what people come up with.
Also let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks

Re: De Sol


Maybe I'm miscounting, but it seems there are more than 6 colors here, or did you use halftones*? (1 red, 2 blues, 2 yellows, black, white eyes, blue eyes, and possibly transparency on both the blue and yellow rays?) Entries can only have 6 colors.
*oh wait, I see the closeup of the halftone now. It still looks like you used a transparency with it though.


Hope you don't mind some feedback on your design, I'm proud of you for entering (it's intimidating) and hope you continue to improve!:
The blue and yellow of the sun/moon stands out well on a red shirt. Maybe consider not putting rays on the moon part to give more of the suggestion of Luna? Also, the cheek line next to the sun's mouth and under his eye are kindof strangely shaped. Well, the one under his eye wouldn't be so strange if the cheek line was gone. I'm assuming the sun is supposed to be smiling in contrast to the moon who is not, you might want to keep the upper lip higher and bring the lower curve of the lip up to meet it, rather than curving the upper lip downt to meet the lower and then curving them both. You also might be able to get rid of the blue eye color by using yellow eyes on the moon and blue eyes on the sun, or even stylizing them a little bit and not having an iris color.

It would actually be, "Del Sol." "De" es inconrrecto.

Oops, sorry about that. Is there a way to change it on Woot? Or just leave it the way it is.
Again sorry to any it may upset or… yeah.

By the way, I posted a second shirt a little different than this one, due to feedback. Thanks guys.

are you trying to say "the sun" or "of the sun"? The first one is actually el sol, the second is del sol.

that being said, I don't think the title is really that important to people voting; change it if you like, leave it if you like! the only way to change it would be deleting this entry and re-submitting it.

Ah, I see. I wanted to say "Of the sun" Jatravartid internet translators... well I will know at least how to say of the sun from now on. I think I will leave it this way though. I am lazy.
