I'm working on these designs. Most are unfinished, but I'd like to see which are popular so I can decide which are worth finishing. Most are low resolution images; I'd get a high resolution one when we print.

Egyptian scarab - I would redraw it completely so it looks like a flat illustration, instead of a photograph

None of this lot - all eye sores and an affront to sartorial elegance.
post #3 of 5

I quite like the squirrels one in the other thread.

 

Most of these don't have enough of a border to look full resolved as a hank. I've seen Mughal-ish squares which are quite lovely, but they don't cut off the design at the edges as much. If the butterfly ones were like a full chart, instead of looking cropped, they would be a great idea.

 

Naturally, that means my favorites are the tapestry ones – the Bacchi and the Elephant.

Brussels Ommegang 1: too similar to Hunt of the Unicorn

BO2: Good

Tea Ceremony: too vivid

Flower vase: not my cup of tea, but it's different from a lot of what you carry, so that's definitely a good thing from a stock point of view

Bacchus 1 and Elephant: I really like squares with borders. Adds versatility. But Elephant looks pretty interchangeable with Departure Herald

Bacchus 2: inferior to 1; lacking a border

Tres riches heures: nothing good or bad. Pass.

Peacock: good. Not great. Color-wise, it's probably interchangeable with the existing Neptune square as well as Along the River

Along the River: most versatile square of the lot. I think similar in application to your Neputune square, but since that's one of your most versatile squares, having another which is similar is probably a good idea.

Butterflies: the first is better than the second as it has more variety in scale.

Jerusalem: everything it can do, View of Edo can do better due to its inclusion of blue. Still a neat image.

Mughals: you should carry one of these two as lavender doesn't have much of a presence in your current stock. On one hand, the first gives you blues and browns at the center of the image. On the other, the second looks more complete (the image isn't awkwardly truncated)

Some of them do seem redundant (not that that matters to me) as Clags said above, but these are a few I quite like:

 

Mughal 6 (though perhaps sans black horse...could see that being a blotchy look if I puffed it)

 

Jerusalem (Clags is correct, but I'd get one of these regardless of another having greater functionality)

 

Along The River

 

Tres Riches

 

Flower Vase

 

Tea Ceremony (I would rock the shite out of this come summer)
