Back again IMAGE PHAT :D

Post by AbbieLaZe » Fri Jul 23, 2010 2:47 pm

Hi All.
Ok,I've had another go at dreads again this time.
Because I sucked hard at the regular synths, i thought i might give the style of meme's a go as Im always so inspired by her work and LS-7 :) Just like everyone else.
heheh
OK, so i re-used some of my dreads from an earlier showoff in black and turquoise and gunmetal grey.
let me know what you think.

What do you think?
Are hey cool or not? hehehe.
I kinda love them, and making dreads this way is awesome fun, i love it :D
Do you think if i continue practicing, I'll be able to start trading/selling?
Im seriously diggin this style :D

Thankyou lovely ladies, and as always CC welcome :D
cheers, Manda

maybe you should try installing them on yourself first to see how well they hold up before selling.
or install them on a friend if they are happy to be a guinea pig for you!

it would be better than selling them to someone and if they dont hold up you would have to refund them.

I think they look great ! With a bit of perfecting I think these would look awesome. Just work on evening them out a little more, thats all I can say really! Well done!

TYhanks Lovebunny!
I have been trying for years, on and off, to get into the flow of dread making. And i have never been able too. I've always had trouble in getting it right, but this style seems to be a winner!@ I've only made these ones, and I plan to finish this set. Make about 60 ?? or 50? is that a good size set would you think?

I was thinking of this. I might put up a reuest for someone to post them too, give them a run for their money for a few weeks and see how they turn out. I might install some myself too, I'm just not too sure how work would like that :D
Thanks for your kind words too a i really appreciate it :D

Thanks missy :D
I really like it too. It's my favourite so far.
Do you think they look ok though, not in unform swirl? I like them like this, not all the same.
I love the random color change in them?
A few other comments have suggested though that I try to make them more uniform?

Cheers again :i2:

Very nice! The colors are lovely.
Like someone previously said, I'd practice some more, install them and see how they work out before selling.

They are looking really great and pretty dreadful is right the gun metal gray is really gorgeous.

Cant really see the ends properly but i think in the first pic you can see them a little and they look a little chunky. I think maybe they could be a little more tapered at the ends so they are more skinny? Thats just personal prefernce though. x
