Jake! Great redo. Done!
Chuck! I love the Meteorite idea. A great team name. I’m worried that this looks like the SM is on fire and not that it’s screaming through the atmosphere. I want more speed and more space. You feel me? Great start!
Derek! Love seeing old faces around this new contest. I really love me some sailing designs and I think this one’s solid. Try this for me. remove the mast let the flags just be up there and let us fill in where the mast would go. Then, smash it. Designers don’t realize how wide the front part of a hat is and a tall design like this one has to be so small just to get it to fit that you lose a lot of the size. Smash it!
Kim! Another alum. I think about your awesome “Brontos” design from time to time and it always puts a smile on my face. I love me a good Rueben Sandwich. I’m a Katz man myself. I love the marbled rye. I love the Statue of Liberty crown. I want you to try and beef up the rendering style your using for this character. More shadows, more heavy lines. Even a symmetrical design could be great. I’d like you to get the rendering so tight that you could use 2 or 3 colors and still get the sandwich/liberty crown effect. Do it!
David! This is David’s first time using Illustrator and I think it’s a great first outing. I’m proud of you for trying something new and teaching yourself a new program. That’s very admirable. I like the idea of an NY making up a skyscraper. It’s tough to tell it’s an NY though. Keep trying some different arrangements to see if you can get that clearer. The top of the Chrysler building is a great tower topper to use as your inspiration, but I want more detail in there, more shadow. Great start!
Scott! Yes! This is a great way to do a New York themed entry. I love that he’s a lizard man and he’s so full of life. I like the idea of the nail up the nose but I think it doesn’t read right away. What about making him a sword swallower? This guy in this position but with a sword hanging out of his mouth could be amazing. Do it!
The entries are piling up over here so thanks for your patience. We’re pedaling as fast as we can. Keep em coming!
