Very nice design Heracles! Seawise and I like it. It is looking good and thanks for starting this community contest off. I like the fact that you were creative and used a mythological creature that works with the winter season. :)

I think that the bottom snowboard with just the foot (the back of the snowboard) needs a little something extra. There seems to be just a bit too much white space. Could you add a little something to it? Great job!

One small question. A tweak to a previous design is considered another entry?
Like in Heracles's case. If he/she adds, lets say snowflakes (white-gray, i'm sure youll find the color, with a deep foot blue margin :)), is it considered a second entry?
Thanks

Tweaking the design is not counted as a second design. It would have to look unrecognizable to the first to be considered a new design.

Very cool design, but isn't it too warm for a snowboard? I think a snowboard like this will melt all the snow :) I like it anyway!

Thank you very much resurepus for your feedback . :)

I thought that Red color is more "eye catcher" against the white color of snow.

The theme of the " oiseau mouche " - I really cannot remember it's name in English now :( – ( which can stay stable in the air for about 5 min ) gives an impression about how much the skier can control his movement while jumping in the air .

That is the main concept of my design, and I hope that you like it.

Thank you very much.

Try Photoshop, I think it should work :)

I agree with Resurepus! Very nice design and I am liking this one too. You guys are off to a great start. "oiseau mouche" means bird fly I think. Very nice design AK-Sultan. Could you please try a cooler color for it please, maybe mixed with some other colors. I'd like to see things with really nice vibrant cool colors and pretty shading if you'd like to try that out too. Your shading is pretty nice AK-Sultan. :)

As _Redrum said, photoshop can be used. Illustrator can open it as well as it is a vector file.
