Pick your favorite. Or “none of the above.”

I think I like #3 the best.
February 29, 2012 at 5:17 pm
I like #3 best with #2 as second favorite. I like the subtle red on the #2 skull, but the blue tint on the moth throws it off a bit for me.

Definitely the third from the top.I like the subtlety of the ‘bug’ eyes. When I first saw your earlier post I didn’t pick up on it right away. Only after a second look did I appreciate this little mask.
I like the grey tone a lot too. Gives me a sense of loss and misery. I dig it!

Ranked: #1, #2, #4, #3. Whatever it ends up being, I want a poster sized print!

Two is best. :)) Also, I can see the brush strokes on the black background of each pic. Just FYI. These are just samples afterall and you probably already know that. :-)

I vote number 2, with number 3 as a pretty close second. I have blue eyes, so that I might be biased at the wings hinting at blue eyes. I don’t think you can really go wrong with any of them, though. Great work.

#1 or #3
February 29, 2012 at 7:53 pm
#3 for me
February 29, 2012 at 8:27 pm

3 for sure
March 1, 2012 at 1:28 am
4 for me!

#3…… or #4

I like the red, but think it should match with the red in the title more. Would it offend thee were I to offer my own for the running? (I’m in “Use words that sound pompously ridiculous more” so please excuse me!)

Hell yeah, Tiamat! Let me see what you can do. I can send you the orignal PSD when I get back home next week, if you want all the layers intact.
March 1, 2012 at 10:55 pm
For the record, many of the colored ones look too much like the skull is wearing sunglasses, which makes the image something else altogether.

*ponder* That would be sweet, assuming GIMP can handle Photoshop files. I think it can, yet it seems to be able to!
March 2, 2012 at 5:53 pm
I’ve been playing around a bit for my own amusement. Not quite like this one, but I tried to leave some of the aspects similar, just quickly tossed stuff in as part of my GIMP self-training.

Wow! I love how different the skull looks. And the moth really pops for some reason. The skyline is really cool.
I think the text needs to be different. All one font and across the top or something. This is amazing stuff.
March 2, 2012 at 6:02 pm
The more I look at this one, the more I love it.
March 2, 2012 at 6:19 pm
I was thinking the same about the font, but by the time I thought of it, I’d accidently merged the layer with the font into the one with the crown and so could not move one without warping the other.
March 2, 2012 at 6:20 pm
When I go back and look at mine, they look horrible by comparison.
I’m starting to like the font staggered, just might play with a different font for the word “Zombie.” The position of the “I” is brilliant.
I love this.

Also, thanks! :D

#3 The gray looks the best if you stick with the colors of the sky line and title
March 4, 2012 at 12:34 am
I played some more, the skull is smaller, the crown larger and the title is all on one line. the font is different in two of them and in one I’ve removed the crown, though I’m partial to the crown being on it. :)
I have no idea which one I like of the 6 so far.
March 4, 2012 at 6:51 am
I think I like the second and third out of this last batch.
And like I said on FB, you really don’t have to be doing this! If you want to send me some files, I can play around when I get home. I’m feeling guilty and like you’re underpaid. ;)
March 4, 2012 at 12:26 pm
LOL, strangely enough, I was feeling guilty and like I was over paid!
Odd to get paid either way for something I had so much fun doing. (The skull in the first place.) This is just more entertainment for me.
