View Full Version : Two pictures for letter J

05-19-2003, 02:13 PM
Here are two ideas I came up with for the letter J. They turned out OK. Not my favorites.

The first one is just called "Jester"


This one is called "One Eyed Jack" As I stated in CP the colors didn't scan quite right. The yellow should be more Goldenrod and the green more Lime.


Hope you like them.

I will try again.

I like yor creativity pretty much :)

These r both so COOL! I really like both, but I like the Jester 1 the best 4 these reasons:

1. The black & blue diamonds
2. The bells hanging off the J
3. The collar 4 the Jester is really lovely against the dark blue - looks really good

Now having said that I like the "Jack" 4 these reasons:

1. The colors!
2. The design u have in the J
3. The chain of card symbols hanging off the J

Aren't u glad I narrowed that down 4 u - LMAO!!

Thanks for the comment BJ.

Hey Jamie. Leave it to you to narrow it down...heheh LOL. I like the colors of both but just not happy with the Jack's face. Oh well, I can't be mawvelous all the time....LMAO

Howdy Sharon!

I like the top one better of the two. The diamonds, the bells...Yeah...If I HAD to pick I would go with the Jester. :)

Yup, I'm for the first one too - the Jester.
I really like the patterning on the second and the intricate detail but - I hope I don't offend here :confused: - the second one called to mind bait on a fish hook! Isn't that dreadful! Sorry jjsangel... no comment on the brilliant artwork, just the positioning and overall shape made me think of it.
I think because most of your faces have 'filled' the letters - or are a part of them - and also have the majority looking at the viewer, the first fits better with the series you are doing as it tends to blend in to the shape and design.
Don't hate me!!!:(

Hey Danny, I agree 100%. I don't like the second one. I almost didn't even post it.

Manda, Manda, Manda, of course I hate you....ROFL hehehe. No, I actually agree with you. I don't like the second one. I like the colors some and the design of the letter but I hate the face. It just doesn't go with it. I redid it about a half dozen times and never could get it to look right. Like I told Danny, I almost didn't post it, but thought, oh what the heck, go ahead. So I did, just for the heck of it. So, I actually don't hate you. Don't care for you much, but don't hate you. hehehehehehe:evil: :angel: Just kidding.... hugggggsssss...:D

I really like the colour combination on the second one!

Anticipating K :D

05-19-2003, 10:15 PM
Hey Sharon! I'll vote for the first one too, but I also love the detail on the second one! You are almost halfway there with this alphabet!! Keep it up, you're doing wonderfully!!

:clap: :clap: :clap:

Wow, two for the price of one!

:clap: :clap: :clap:

You must like making work for yourself!;)

Thanks Axl. Me too.

Thanks alot Mel. I'm getting there slowly but surely.

Thanks Chris. Naw, it just keeps me busy.

Thank you rapolina. No actually I used colored pencils for the color.

Hi Sharon......must agree the first fits better with series and is one of the best. Glad you posted the second it may be second but it has beautiful work on the letter and I like the way the face fits in the letter.
Keep going:clap: :clap:

05-20-2003, 07:13 PM
Two very good "J" designs!! I like the first one too :) I think the second one would work if the face was bigger :D:)

:clap: :clap: :clap:

05-20-2003, 07:23 PM

hi -i'm new. but i had to comment on your work. i love it! as a matter of fact ,i have some drawings with the same feel to it-amazing color! both are great...... if you're so busy looking behind you,you can forget to look ahead.......me

Like the design work in 'Jack', like the face- But somehow they don't seem to me to work together as well as they might. Just my two cents, of course :) IMO, all the elements in 'Jester' come together well, and 'Jester's an obvious keeper. Nice work!

Woah, I hadn't seen your work before, it's fab!
I really, really like your second J better. Perhaps if you made the face a 3/4 view, then it wouldn't blend in with the lines of the letter so much & would work?

05-28-2003, 12:44 PM
Hi r4cord. Glad to have you here. Thanks for the nice comments. You should post your pictures here so we can see them.:D

Thanks Mark. I agree 100% on your comments on the Jack. Not my favorite. I think the Jester turned out pretty good though.

Thanks so much Prairie Painter. Glad you like it. I sure do appreciate you looking.:)

I can't believe I missed this one Sharon..... you know how I love your luscious lips and dreamy eyes :D

I really like the jester....excellent design.... love his hat and bells.

I really like Jack too.... simply because its a different style..... but maybe it would'nt fit into your alphabet as well as Jester does.

Way to go girl..... you are doing a fantastic job:clap: :clap:
