It's starting to get there. The problem with the green background is it's a bit overpowering and makes it so you can't really see the Geico Money too well. And while we're worried about copyrights, I guess what we can do is try a few things. A badge saying 'SMOKE' was mainly for AMVS2, with that funny running gag. So better yet would probably be that character's face or him in the background saying 'SMOKE' but probably too much trouble.Warlike Swans wrote:So, I tried to add more stuff to the idea without making it too busy.
When i brought the new sketch to photo shop to resize and add "happy meal" text I went kinda ADD which is why it's colored...
I don't want to add anything that would tread on any copyrights in this (at least not too blatantly)... and I actually think a Pedobear would be more likely to see print than something saying "Smoke". I don't think the emoticon will be tied too closely to the "I'm in Ur Stuff" since its an emoticon and integrated into a pseudo Jolly Rodger.
I think in a final copy the lettuce should fill the background... an explosion of lettuce, if you will.
Actually instead of lettuce in the background, I think the whole box should be right in the middle of a big Caesar salad or something. Maybe even just grab an image to use, or use an image as reference. Sort of to accent the complete dichotomy of the two. The salad and the unhealthy happy meal. Right now the lettuce background is too saturated and makes it difficult to know where to look, even if you did a good job of making the lettuce lines pointing all toward the center.
I'll take a stab at this myself, actually. I'll go with your basic idea and see what I can come up with now that I have a bit of free time. And we may as well just use the real face. It's not like anyone owns it. And if anyone claimed to own it, we could flip them off and laugh.
