I couldn't resist... I'm not much for art but I can copy and paste :sm



Now what do you think I should do for that strawberry SP? :)

Mmm might be putting cart before the horse here... Well it's bubbling away - so maybe not :)

I just know I need to say something about the appearacne of that lemon.

But out of the respect for all the ladies in here, I will let someone else get in trouble.

LOL!

Just not going to do it! Oh, I know I need to!!!!!

Innocent until proven guilty, and all appeals exhausted.

I like the colors but the water droplet on the skeeter looks odd.

That's pretty neat. Great job capturing the skeeter so well for the overlay. Is there a way to tweak the contrast of just the skeeter, it seems a bit too transparent.

I love it overall. Good work.

You mention strawberry SP, do you have a recipe? Is it just the SP recipe using Strawberry Slurry? Can you post the recipe for strawberry SP?

Little more than just strawberry slurry... Not sure if I should share before it's even really started fermenting :) But just kinda winged it...

Basically - got 4 of the 425ml tubs of frozen strawberries in syrop from safeway (used to be in the tetrapak - now its a tub) added to ~6cups water, boiled down to about half, strained out the good stuff, used it as bottle #2 of the SP recipe. Don't know how it'll work, probably end up using more strawberry once fermenting has finished for a bit more body and sweetness...

I'm itching just looking at the label. That does look really cool. A great conversation piece.

I agree - the skeeter almost appears to be pasted on the picture rather than appearing as the skeeter is on the lemon.

Other than that - nice work!!

Yup it is just pasted on there :) Will play with it more later - unfortunately I'm no artist; and just barely passable with GIMP - but I might see about changing the contrast on the mosquito layer and play with that water drop a bit (I see i missed a couple areas to erase too...) - transparancy of the mosquito - not sure what to do about that one...

the trick with cropping is to go in really close, leave extra around the cut and then blend it after it's on the page to look good. you have to get down to making it look pixelated.

i wouldn't make it transparent. the edges need some though and that's why you blend it in.

Yup, that's pretty much what I did - Paste in new layer (skeeter) then went at it with the big eraser then worked my way down to the smallish one with the spraypaint pattern...

Thinking whats throwing it off is the different focal points and the different lighting sources; I could look for a differing mosquito - but that one was perfect with the waterdrop rolling off it...

image sources if anyone wants to play...

Once its printed very small on a label and through the printer I bet you wouldnt even notice. Good job!
