vergad said on Jul. 25 '11

nice fusion! Love the type too... perhaps just tweak one of the O's a little to make it different to the other. top work!

As simple and whimsical as this one is at first glance, there's actually a lot of complexity to the way its rendered, which is why it works so well. I can tell a lot of thought went into how to execute this so that the end result looks effortless. Some will not consciously pick up on this complexity, but I see it, and it's brilliant. When I first looked at this, I obviously saw a cow that doubles as a fish, but after studying it a bit more, I'm seeing that the cow's nostrils are also the fish's eyes, while the cow's eyes are also the fish's eyebrows. The shape of the cow's pink snout is important, because it also frames the fish's face. And the icing on the cake is the cow's udder, which is also the fish's pectoral or pelvic fin. very, very well done. My only nitpicky comment is one that Matt already pointed out: You should alter one of those Os so that they look truly hand-rendered.

Hah! Good one !

Thanks for the kind words and floats everyone! Really appreciate it as always. Just gave one of the o's a little tweaking.

@atomicvibe Wow, as Reno said, great eye man... Who'd have thought I could achieve all that without even knowing?! Haha, in complete honesty I didn't even see the other fish until you mentioned- but since spotting it I've begun to push the imagery further by aligning the various parts up (eyes, eyebrows) a little better. Well spotted! You are definitely right about it appearing simple but a lot of time going into constructing though :). You've provided great feedback on a few of my designs now, so cheers for that!

thst is really really nice ... !!

Atomicvibe said on Jul. 26 '11

If you were able to achieve all that w/o consciously knowing about it, that says a lot about your natural inclination towards design. Bravo!

Neat illustration. I like these colors.

rokis said on Jul. 26 '11

Great combo :)

brandsanity said on Aug. 01 '11

Haha, not so sure about that Jon!

Thanks all for the comments and floats.

@nick The colours were referenced from a palette on ColourLovers so I probably shouldn't take credit for them! Great website though for colour ideas and combinations.
