Then I deleted out its white areas, leaving just black texture, which I selectively copied and pasted over the samurai and his stuff.

Thanks

See, I tried to mess with the saturation and thought of using a photo to overlap for texture but it didn't look right. Great job though, and thanks for the advice.

I really like the egg on this one, but I'd like to see more definition to the street area, like a curb drawn in - it is hard to tell the egg is frying on a street/sidewalk.

Here it is step by step- select the area you want textured on your artwork, then drag the selection over to the texture-pic. Edit, Copy. Then, go back to your artwork. The selected area is still selected (as long as when you dragged it earlier you dragged it all the way onto the other pic). Edit, paste. Then image- adjust- desaturate the pasted texture layer, adjust brightness and contrast 100%, magic wand the white, and delete. good luck!

Re: hot sun



take this as constructive criticism: make an object *or centerpiece in this case) something more identifable, and well, more appealing

It got rejected and rightfully so. Very funny and creative, but it has several strikes against it, the biggest being GL's legal team.

GMV, I just wonder if the red and the "cranberry" tee actually contrast as much as they do in the image. I have my fingers crossed

My thoughts exactly. I love the design and would consider buying it if it weren't for the shirt color itself. I feel like the trucks get lost on the cranberry.

I'm not crazy about the whole killing cute things either, I think it has been overdone. Great talent though...like I need to say that.

Re: Jump in



I think this is a fun summer design, I just wish it were on a colored shirt. The black on white seems a bit washed out for something as awesome as jumping into a huge body of cool water on a hot summer's day.

ah....uh, very nice design, but i'm afraid the "heathered grey" shirt won't sell it.

Pretty but watch where the edges of your picture cut off. It would be awesome if you just redrew it so that it wasn't just a square but a whole picture.

I agree, it doesn't look like a rip off, but they did reject a shirt for having the same idea as a Far Side cartoon during the revolution derby, and it looked nothing like the original. But then Far Side would be more likely to sue than an indie artist...

Vote!

what would be the point?



They were suggesting a different shirt color since creme is not widely loved here. you may get some attention on lemon or baby blue (with some slight color alterations) Also, putting it on lemon could really free up anyplace you currently have yellow, allowing the design to breathe and stretch a little.

And as for size, well many of us have explained. It's the amount of ink. They may not have to do a base layer for the design, but it will still be quite heavy as well as the design just is too large overall to be incredibly comfortable.
