Default Unveiling the New Boat! Wanna See?

Here it is, guys! This is the preliminary paint job and we still have some tweaking to do. We're thinking of lightening up the green a bit. Also, we might do away with most of the white and use all green and yellow. We don't like the big chunk of dark green behind the capsules.

Anybody want to play with it in Photoshop? I've been working on it a bit....I'll post more as I get them. And by no means did we do this ourselves, APA Labs did the ground work.

i'm no good at photoshop but if you could fade the yellow to green on the engine hatches that would be pretty cool.... looks good though

It does look alittle too 'busy', IMHO I would make 'Popeye's' more pronounced. Definately lose the solid green on the hatches. Blend more color in over the tunnel, maybe a faded yellow.

it's busy stan, almost looks like the inside of the store. too much food and people i would stay away from the solid break points in the color, more fading .

Thumbs up Re: Unveiling the New Boat! Wanna See?

It was designed in 1 day by A.B.A. The people who do the walls inside of the stores. I am definitly going to change it but I needed a prelim for a sponsorship package. I know if I can get everyone to chime in I can get some great ideas. Thanks for the opinions. I know I need help. I need it to get the sponsors message out but at the same time I do but don't want to look like a billboard.

Take the green off the hatch. Do the side in vinyl so it will peel off later. Both side are plenty for Popeye's and leave the hatch for another sponsor.

On the rear dark green hatches, I think fading it from yellow to the orange on the back end would make the most sense. There is already enough going on, so those hatches dont really need to be a different color.

Yo Popeye!

This isnt the greatest photoshop job in the world, but its the idea that was rattling around in my head.
