Hot diggety, this is outstanding! I like this one best of all. Of course, that was my reaction with the last one, but this time I'm serious.

A very strong and creative concept. Well executed. The only thing i'm not sure is the color. For me it look like blood. Why red red? I think that a nice blue can look as good as red. And the blue will be your sky over the skyline.**What do you think?

%5E I think it reads as Paint the Town Red, and from that perspective, it has a great recall factor.

I am shocked this is not in the gallery...%0D*%0D*The only thing I'd mention is that the top edges of the lines that define the buildings do not 'curve' to match the perspective of the can. Other than that, it's fabulous. %0D*%0D*I totally get the 'paint the town red' part of this concept. Wouldn't change it, imo.

@brandsimplicity: thanks man, you made it happen! :D**@tass, lefty %26 molly: appreciated!**@cseven: thank you, it's been a fun ride :)**@bouchardoli: yes, I tried different colors, but then I was introduced to the expression %22paint the town red%22 and decided red was the way to go!**@chirp: thanks bud, I also had that reaction to the last one, but I'm more excited with this one as well.**@relate: WOW thanks man, that's such a nice thing to say, and regarding the perspective of the paint, that's what epsilon said in the pevious one, and I agree, unfortunately my attempts to achieve it have resulted in total crap, need a little more practice :(**Thanks guys, for taking the time to comment!

Although this got my first comment and vote, I still think that the city line seems flat and it doesn't follow the perspective of the can. Probably the only thing that should be adjusted to make it a master piece.

JF Jul. 04 '11

Agree with Type08. Line of the city buildings needs to curve to fit the perspective of the can. The type already does this, so the buildings need to match the type's perspective imho. It's a great concept%3B would love to see that all finally fit together so this can get into the gallery.

Reply
cnasshan Jul. 11 '11

I think this is top notch. floated and faved m'man. Would like to see some kind of stroke or highlight to make the paint come alive, but it works as is. My initial reaction to the buildings was the same, it's not complimenting the can. I hope this makes it to the gallery :)

atomicvibe Nov. 19 '11

Hey Reno, while I do agree with others' comments that the city skyline should conform to the three-dimensionality of the can, I think that conceptually, this mark is brilliant. It cleverly says a lot with very minimal forms. Really superb effort here!
