nice work, the colours and layout all work together nicely.

Not sure about the toothpast though, looks abit rough compared to the rest of the elements on the screen…

cowpiesurprise

Don’t be a pixel? Fluorescent toothpaste? I’m lost.

It is visual delicious. I like this piece a lot, but I agree with inVZbi, the toothpaste image bothers me somehow.

What does the toothpaste, and pixel mean?

Nice work ing eneral^_^

Beerad

Cool piece, I think this is going to be a good theme.

I’m sorta sick of the word Pixel, in any context. But, I like the image overall.

soul8o8

ok, i feel i have to clearify “pixel” and the general idea of this piece..

well, a pixel is generally in the shape of a square, so pixel = square, don’t be a pixel = don’t be a sqaure, so it means “don’t be boring” (yes, cheezy.. : )

also, as we all know, pixels have limits, a bitmap image have a limited amount of detail. but vector graphics does not. so i tried to visualize what boring lectures does to us by showing that the girl becomes “pixelated” with boredom (and thus limited). at the same time i tried to visualize that our inner mind and our creativity is limitless by showing that the girl’s thoughts are in vector graphics..

so the whole idea of this is to encourage people to “fight boredom and stay creative”, erh.., kinda silly but hey! that’s me :-)

ah yes, the tooth paste - i don’t know why, but i felt that just the two main texts themselves wasn’t enough - sure the message might get through but i just felt that the viewers need a little something to spark their imagination - to start their creativity - right here, right know.. and, erh, i thought that doing somehitng irational would be the best way - to make people go “what?” - cause then you’re starting to think and find a reason and then you’re away!

ok, hope that explains my idea well :-)

bharper

so what you’re saying is I need to think outside the vector?

drink more pixels?

expand my toothepaste?

commudesmax

deep thought soul8o8…^_^ ho ho ho

Beerad

ahh, pixel.. square I get it. Good Times

fashionvictim

even with the explanation about the toothpaste, just doesn’t make sense. it really bothers me cuz i love the image and would have given it a four.

it’s just so unconnected and random. and i know that was part of your point, but i think you could have just left it out. i don’t think it needed anything else.

anyway, that’s my two cents. ;)

inman

That’s it. From now on you’ll be known as fashionpixel! ;D

Here we go… Vectors, pixels, whatever. When I’m bored I start daydreaming…

..ok, im glad we’re past that tooth paste issue!

this looks interesting..

hmm, i see a girl - is she crying? no wait! i see two girls, no! three!!.. a palm tree and two dudes walking under it.. hmmm.. some birds, a map.. i feel a treasure hunt coming on!

btw, did anyone see that movie “Cannibal women in the Avocado Jungle of Death”?? i might just use it..

nice how you used those two “fruits” under her eye..

i’ll be back!

Diamantis

Whoa, I dig this image! The layers make me think about getting lost deeper and deeper into a daydream. I just wish there was some sort of contrast or … something to pull the image on the right side of the image a bit more, like a tunnel looking thing or something!

Diamantis

OK I know that probably didn’t make any sense. I was just thinking about how you could show being “sucked” into another dimension or something!

Is there an echo in here?

Lincoln

you are bizarre.

hbruce

Lincoln - did that comment refer to me? Diamantis? soul8o8? Or even all of us?! :D

If it would happen to be to me I take it as a compiment. ;)

Lincoln

well, it was for diamantias really. but if it makes you feel better, I think you’re pretty weird for asking.

sorry, I’m always popping into threads saying insignificant things…I totally agree with diamondmantis though. ‘s a good image. needs contrast.

airdrome

Hey how did you make that vector effect on the corner of design 1 the pink and orange one
