Somebody That I Used to Know (Finished) by samanthamuscaria Somebody That I Used to Know (Finished) by samanthamuscaria
Finished calligram of "Somebody that I used to Know" by Gotye feat. Kimbra.

I love how this came out. I was originally going to do the background the same color as the album cover (since the colors are from the album cover as well), but the colors were too light to show up on that background, so I figure it works well enough on black. Plus, it gives it that kindof ominous feeling that comes with a breakup.

I love this, and I can't wait to tweet it to Gotye on Twitter!

Edit: Holy wow! A DD! I am so proud of this! Thank you to EVERYONE who favorites this or comments! I promise you will get a comment back and/or a llama! <3

New edit: Wow! I.. uh.. underestimated the power of a llama promise. There's over 900 favorites in my box right now, and I don't think I'll ever get through them.

Just know that I appreciate all of the love, support, llamas, and favorites I've received from everyone on here :heart::star::heart:

Daily Deviation

This is an awesome picture! And, by all means, it needs to be a Daily Deviation, but I have a problem with it.

It's an eyesore, for me, to read. It took me about three minutes to figure out what it had to do with the song! I guess that's the price for having to fit letters into a shape. I understand, just pointing out something I didn't like.

The thing I do adore, however, is the shape. I see a plain as day that it is a side profile of a man and a woman. Very clever, I give you props on that. Although, I would have loved it more if there was hair. You Could put the song title there, along with the band name, "Fun.".
The change in color. Very unique in it's own way.
One thing I think would be awesome, is if you sent this to the band's producer/editor whatever to maybe use as a poster, cd cover, whatever. That would be amazing! But don't get your hopes up. I've tried something like that; a poem with a friend about one of my favorite T.V shows' drama. No reply. :(
But this is about you, not me. This is amazing, and I can't wait to click that watch button to look out for some more amazing work from you! :D

I'm only docking you half a star on the vision, like I said; It was hard for me to read. If others found it simple, GREAT! Coo-dos on the great eye sight! Otherwise, I thought it was amazing. Great work!
What do you think?

>w<!! Thank you! I love both, too--the way the musical glitters and the way the book portrays Oz as a gritty, New York-esque city. What's not to like?

I think this is amazing. It is a fantastic tribute to one of my favorite songs. Using the great shapes of the letters fitting into all those spaces... What a feat!!!!
