Kick Flip Contest: Pierce the Veil no 1 by complecontra Kick Flip Contest: Pierce the Veil no 1 by complecontra
Edit: Fixed a minor thing, but unfortunately my computer keeps crashing photoshop when I try to save as a .png file. So for now it's a .jpg unless I can solve this before the deadline time.

Helping the gallery kick off with an entry for the Kick Flip for a Cause Contest!

Now I listen to PTV and would say I'm a fan, but that's nothing compared to my sister and her boyfriend. They both are huge fans. So of course I HAD to make a good entry for this. I'd love to give them a chance to get to meet the band honestly, I owe my sister so much for the help she gives me.

I did research to try and see what the band was really about according to the members wanted to incorporate key aspects that I've gathered. I remember something that stood out to me was an interview in which they said something along the lines of "the bad parts of us aren't really bad, they're just part of life and you deal with them". Thorns and white roses seemed appropriate.

-----Materials-----
There's a variety of rose heads and several types of thorns and those are done with india ink and a pen nib with an ink wash.
Some home made spatters with red ink.

The text is the Logo of the assets pack and the "Forget Regret" isn't a font. I took and edited letters of the logo to make sure it fit and was within contest rules.

For fear of this taking too long and exceeding deadline time, the file is now a .png instead of a.jpg

At first, I thought, BANDAIDS!!:iconteyuplz: Cause the shape.
Then I clicked and read the description and saw it was a skate board, even more cooler than bandaids.

I really must say, you're quite good at the whole skateboard graphics thing. Daresay it wouldn't be that hard for you to land a professional gig doing it.
