planning to do something different about graphics .how do you think these look?
Like the second one but she may look better bow forward or some variation of that.
takes away from the boat.
Not very pleasing
I agree Keep working on them.
Put your best foot forward!
these are very quick works.I just want to get ideas about the concept.
shall I do smtng like that or keep it white with only name written on it?
Coming from a graphic designers point of view, I see nothing wrong with the images, more a matter of their size. I believe you can get the same impact with one of the designs if it were to occupy the last third of the boat. Jb hit it on the head, being so large it really detracts from the boat and kinda kills the lines of it. Try downsizing the same images and I think you will be just as happy and end up with a design that adds to the boat and not take away.
I call that kind of thing a "mural" graphic. My current boat had a giant "mural" all down the sides of it , cost the guy like 4gs for it. I came, looked at the boat and said "nice boat, but that mural will never see my driveway!" the guy was a little insulted, he thought it was quite cool. Anyway I made an offer which he accepted then got the painter to come over and give me a price on removing the mural and putting the boat back to white ($1000) and deducted that from my offer. So the mural ended up detracting from the value of the boat , not adding to it. the boat was redone and it never did see my driveway. That type of thing is intensely personal and hard to get universal appeal like a stripeing job but it certainly can be done.
There is an old Formula at a lot around here on consignment witha mural of a giant flaming metor all down the side of it and Ive been through two boats and that thing is STILL there. I asked the owner of the lot about that ridiculus mural on the boat and he just shook his head and said the owner thinks that is the absolute coolest paint job thats ever been done "can you believe that?" he said ........."ya notice I keep it in the back!!" Doug
in my honest opinion,murals belong on buildings and 1978 chevy vans.I believe that boat graphics should enhance the lines of the hull,not mask them.
Dear Oso friends;
resale / try to sell this boat is impossible here in Turkey.I never think this point.
here are some of the reasons why it is impossible:
-my country has very serious economical crisis
-99% we are going in to war aganist Iraq .We are on the same side with USA with pleasure but there is a forgotten point:we are in the missiles effective range.we share a border with iraq.
-put everyting to a side 1 galon fuel is 5usd here in Turkey.
-costs are too high ; I have to pay more then 100% of invoice to import boat parts. Ex:
4000usd bravo1+500 shipping+4500 turkish tax+500 import expenses :almost 10K for a 4k drive...imagine the cost of total...
I knew this when I started the boat so its ok there is no problem with that.
[SIZE=4]Last minute: ok.I understand; will kep it white...[/SIZE]
