    SON OF A....forgot all about it! looks great as usual, but I did notice that the "ric" in American gets cut off by the barrel ellipse. Top Notch!

    watched live one till half but couldnt stay anymore eyes burnt ,but glad to see it turned out sweet so far,also do you always work from zoomed out view? because seeing this live i didnt notice u zooming in,and i like that almost every stroke u pull is from one pen move,which adds up to the personal feel of the piece more.. and dont kill me but i think that "rye whiskey" kinda doesnt fully fits with the rest of the type style wise,i see u intended it to be diffrnt but maybe it needs slightly more connection to the rest..just suggestion

    Thanks guys! Thanks for all those who tuned in for the broadcast!

    @Jason Carter doh! Haha sorry man, yeah... looks like I have my layers a little out of order. I've still got a ways to go on this design. Thanks man!

    @Nemo Jovanovic aka Fracturize as for the "zoom" someone else asked me that and I went into a long explanation, the short of it is yes I do, I didn't some much on this piece particularly because the final print of the crow itself will be so small, like 3x4 inches or something like that. I was afraid if I got a lot of detail in there, at that small of a size, the illustration would get muddy and the details lost.

    For the "Rye Whiskey" type, and thanks for the critique by the way.... I research a lot of old Whiskey labels and the real challenge was to create a label that looked authentic and has been around for 100+ years. I personally think it achieves that. If I was going for something a little more modern and hip, I may have made a lot of different choices. But anyway, thanks for tuning in man!

    Thanks @Keith Tatum for checking it out! Appreciate it all!

    nps man,as far zoom out thing goes,i recommend u working with two windows in ps
    for instance on one itz zoomed in on other itz zoomed out that way u have both windows updated in same time,thats what i do atleast and helps me focus on silhouettes compostion more since i see both views instant.
    Just go to Photoshop-Window-Arrange-at the bottom u have option new window for ..your psd file name and done :)
    and thanks for explaining thinking behind that rye whiskey type that sorts it out :)

    Yeah buddy! Nice one, I don't know how you refrained from dropping a "R" and "W" in those circles (or something similar).. I never can.
