Re: thinking together artwork to 'Wheezy'
I like this dark swirl layout very much as well.
I'm especially fond of the simple glossy-effect you put on the swirl. I
would just skip the 3d-part of it in the background. In my opinion it
doesn't help the great effect but contradicts the interwoven background.
In my view it would be even better without it...
Maybe you want to add a somehow brighter variation to your proposals as
well because it's very, very dark - at least on my notebook.
