Suggestions? I got other ideas but need a couple days.



hahaha wow that is messed up, I have no suggestions for you, I like it the way it is!

okay Edit lol: I took another look for another laugh, the feet make me think of elephants, since pigs have hooves maybe change the feet and the hands - have you ever watched Sponge Bob? (yeah okay I'm a dork) I say that because I like how you gave them fingers, but I think you could do something with hooves into fingers like Sponge Bob's Mr Krab's does with his claws. Sometimes he has magical "fingers" from his claws, but it works for the cartoon, and I think it would work really well for this design too.

I think the blue guy should have a different face....maybe more menacing or hungry?

The boy pig comes across as a little "elephantish"...maybe make him a little rounder. I think the girl should be plump and juicy (more appetizing)

Isn't he gray?

I think his expression is fine. He looks bored... just waiting for those animals to cook so he can finally enjoy some food after a long day of terrorizing the countryside.

ha.ha when I was little I watched this video tape with lots of singing and they sang that song, and then the monster appeared and all the kids were scared of being eaten, and the monster said "no I only eat purple people!"

unfortunately I have no recollection what color the monster actually was in that tape, only the silly bit of humor because its the type of joke my dad would make (okay not about eating people but a play on grammar and bad puns..)

I actually love his bored look. It seems to me like he had some great disappointment and went all nihilist on his forest home.


Great job.

I think this might break the text rule... but If I made it into a 'bar and grill' sort of logo would it be ok?

when skewers are in such close contact, there must be a little eyeballing/flirtation going on...
At first I was going to make everyone all flirty with everyone, but then I changed to maybe just a few. I was also going to do 2 skewers, but then I liked the one on its own. Any thoughts?
Undecided on the shirt color/coloring.



Ooohh I really like this one. Orange or kelly green.

Knowing me though, I'll get away from it for a few hours and end up deciding you are right as always, boots.

edit: this is on RED, the only color I think i'd consider after going through them all...



Red looks great! I really want an orange shirt, but this looks so good on the red. I would vote for this!

As for the question someone else posed about the eggs staying on the grill... maybe a hot plate on the irons? but that's a loose technicality.

I love it.



How can it look like a yam? It's green. I knew immediately what the reference was. Keep it as is boots! I want it.

Here's an idea that only just pitched for a daily this week... I don't know if you can do both?





Out of all the versions you posted, I like the original the most. I think it's predictable that the fox is thinking about eating Mr. Piggy, but it was unexpected (at least to me) that the pig was thinking "King me"

dankstick wrote:I have a few ideas to give...

1) Grill Shaped like the death star... with the Millennium Falcon flying around... but the Falcon is actually a hamburger. It looks like a burger anyway, bacon sticking out, pickle kinda lending to its shape. Grill is a spherical model, with wheels that is obviously the death star.

2) Ninja posing with grilling utensils as if they were weaponry... next to a grill.

3) Items on a grill that form a happy face, like hamburger eyes and hot dog mouth.

4) Some hot dogs trying to rescue another that slipped between the grill and is about to fall to the embers.


Otherwise, here is my only attempt. I can do so much better, I just have no ideas that match my amateur skills.

The top ones are still blisfully unaware, but the bottom ones start knowing what's coming...
again undecided on colors... here's two.
Also thinking about black, orange, red, cranberry and grass!




I love this better than the other one you posted. Especially on the kelly green.

This just made me think of a friend of mine who got a new grill, and long story short, singed his eyebrows off. It was hilarious!

Start of a design still in progress... "cabbage roast"... any thoughts? Or shirt color suggestions?

It made more since to me when there was Captain Ahab standing there. That being said, I like the ones without all of the extra color.

And just in case there's any confusion, I have 2 skewer designs up (I plan to submit both), the scared vertical veggies over a grill, and the flirty diagonal ones, no grill: )



Don't submit both b/c then you'll split your votes like on the dance derby. Just do the green scared veggies over the fire. The 2 designs are too close together that ppl will just pick their favorite and not vote for both.

There is something very endearingly Edgarish about this. Notsure about the gray, but everything else works great for me.

Thanks godslinger.
Actually I have 2 different skewer designs up here for feedback (planning to submit both as long as there is interest), and that includes the kellygreen one (with the scared veggies) you like!
Here's the updated other skewer design though, if you have any feedback on that:

If I could go back to my sketching stage I could experiment, but I'm not really good at adding onto an image once its done :x I'll keep it simple this time around and see what happens.

Also, I totally wanted to slap something hilarious on his apron but I was concerned with breaking incidental text, and also messing up the image's visual balance. (Not to mention that I couldn't possibly think up a G-rated beaver joke that hasn't already been done to the point of corniness...)

Moreover: Color! But I need input vis-a-vis; BBQ sauce outline- Yea or Nay? For some reason it really changes it the look of the shirt, but I'm having a hard time deciding between 'em.






I like the outlining and love the concept and art. This would be a must buy for me.

Really, do you think so? In the dance derby, they were the exact same design with different colors so I see your point - I didn't really want to submit 2, but a lot of people were asking me to submit the rainbow one.
In this case though, these are actually 2 independent designs with different themes, but the same subjects/style/coloring...
But the idea behind the shirts are different - one is supposed to be flirtatious skewers, and the other is the skewers approaching a grill.
Do they not seem different?:/
