Dumb Is Coming To Get You

I made a new banner- please tell me what you think! I kept changing it like 5,000 times before this one, probably so fast no one saw! :p

Here's some the stars of it, my only characters really, Maude Macher and Dumb Dumb Duck.


I really need to bring them to life, I think they hate my neglectful ways.

Update! I figured out the mystery of the missing banner- I saved it with CYMK settings instead of RGB. So no wonder some of us could see it, Safari is a smart browser and still could read it, but Camino and others looked at the code and said, no way!

I feel so much better now.

Hi Kali, your new banner doens't seem to be showing up. I'm sure its awesome though!

mbs said...

That banner is busted!

Lester Hunt said...

Excellent banner! Both characters are cute, funny, and original. More more could I ask?

diego cumplido said...

your new banner is nice, but the older one was even nicer.

Tim said...

Banner doesn't load for me either.
"my only characters really"...
Dude...TURPUS!!!

AWESOOOME!!

Kali Fontecchio said...

Wait what????

Hmm, well Lester and I see it, and so can some of my friends online can. Maybe refresh your browser or clean out yer caché? Oh the sadness!

Lester: I wish I could give you more! Most of my art now has to be hidden for legal reasons, haha. But I'll try to post a bunch of fun stuff this month!

"your new banner is nice, but the older one was even nicer."

Really? Poot. I'm sorry I failed.

"Dude...TURPUS!!!"

Oh ya..........

Haha thanks!!

Niki said...

I also draw a person in a suit... I'll change the colour. Oh God the banner's been stolen by the dessert theives!

Kali Fontecchio said...

You can't see it either??

Argh!

Great banner!

Molly said...

I can see it and I think it's adorable.

Shawn Dickinson said...

It's neat! Just like you!

Debra said...

love the new banner, of course I love all your art!

CMYK jpegs are the weirdest things ever. If they don't work, photoshop shouldn't let us save'm that way. Sometimes my Apple Mail views them as inverted black with neon-colored line art. So strange.

This duck is hilarious, and purple! Great characters for a fun banner.

Kali Fontecchio said...

Well the CYMK jpegs are great for printing- makes the colors look more brilliant, especially when printing, to retain the colors you see on the screen.

like it. It's got a great flow. I think if you changed the two hills on the left into just one hill, you'd get some eye rest from the wave form of the banner. Kinda balance up the background village sillo. Great silhouette in general.

This is all levels in photoshop I assume. You might try taking the big type headline even farther into the tree to the left. Get more overlap.

I couldn't see the banner earlier today at work. Blogspot gets glitchey.

Glad to hear you are hard at work on secret projects.

Kali Fontecchio said...

Yay Ellis!

That was an awesome critique! I might go do all those things exactly!!!

I should take yer class again, haha.

Nico said...

I'm in love with Maude!

How's the card coming along? ;)

Emily said...

Nice Kali! Maude is a cute one. I'm loving your backgrounds (in general).

Colter said...

Hey Kali, it looks great! Love the colors!

Niki said...

like the dessert people gave it back!

Kali Fontecchio said...

Thank you guys! I am very happy :)

megcasey said...

Geeze, that banner's awesome! Fantastic colors. I think the only thing I would change is that foot there - it's contour line is kind of sitting on top of that purple hill there. Otherwise, looks fantastic!

Kali Fontecchio said...

Oh crap! I have one where I fixed that foot hill touching thing- thanks for reminding me!

kellie said...

Very nice, and the lettering is lovely too.

Trevor Thompson said...

Love the banner!

Kali Fontecchio said...

THANKS! :D

Teagan said...

HOORAY FOR BANNER!

I know that's really not any kind of constructive critique....but I like it.

Marc Deckter said...

Love the new banner. Dumb Dumb for Mayor!
