I don't mind at all... just PLEASE get a good professional parlor to do it... and I suggest going fairly big with it. It's an extremely complex design that could easily turn into mush if you got it done too small. Thanks for asking and I'd love to see it if you do go through with it!
I completely see your point. And believe me, I would NEVER work with a cheap artist on something like this (or ever). It's too beautiful. And go big or go home, right!? Haha. Thank you so much! I will definitely contact you if I end up getting it.
Hahahahaaa!! Oh my goodness this one made me laugh XD
Have you thought about printing on Redbubble.com? You don't get 100% of the profits like you would from printing them yourself and selling on Etsy, but you do make 20% and you can put your designs on a wider variety of items as well.
Your stuff would definitely sell well that's for sure. You could also try out the "tee-a-day" sites like Yetee or TeeFury.
Limited colors are a lot of fun for me, plus it keeps me from going too nuts on things... pretty much fell in love with it since that one piece I did for Lithy. [link]
Linework... yeah... pretty much been working on that for ages and didn't get good at it till a few years ago. Easy as pie now though! There's a lot of weird little nuances to doing it... if you need some pointers, let me know.
For me it's more of a "how the hell do I shade with four colors?!?!?!" problem XD I just discovered the joys of half toning though. Hopefully that will help me out some.
Is there a specific brush or tool that you use for your lines? Usually I work in Corel Painter for all of my stuff, but you can't have transparent backgrounds on that program, so hello photoshop! LOL Still trying to learn all the nifty things that you can do with it.
