Síntese do concurso

Hello! I am planning to propose to my girlfriend. My name is Joshua and her name is Shoshana, so people call us "Shoshashua". I want to get a plaque designed that will say "Shoshashua forever?" I was thinking of maybe doing it in a trippy style, and then printing it on metal? but I'm not set on that and I'm definitely open to ideas if you have something you think would rock! I do want a finished product though. She also really really loves tea, and really really loves scotch (and really loves the color pink). I want it to have a lot of detail and style. I am open to creative ideas. I uploaded some photos of some styles I like just from a quick google search. I want it to look super cool and detailed, and colorful!!

I'm thinking 11"x17" or 13"x19" size for the final product? I want it too look good if it needs to be blown up a bit, I don't want it looking pixelated. I'm leaning towards 13"x19" size, approx.

Thanks! looking forward :D



I have the perfect idea. The letters Shoshashua Forever? Will be very big, taking up the whole 13"x19" plaque. The font of the letters can be a cartooney style or any creative style you think would work. Now Inside these huge letters, that's where all the details will be. She loves whiskey- particularly scotch, she loves Big dogs, and she loves Loose leaf tea. Run wild with any creative cute ideas for anything that can go inside the letters. I will give big big preference to hand drawn, I mean actually done with a pencil and paper. Here are some things you can draw inspiration from-

1. Tushie temp. This is an inside joke where she checks my tushie temperature at night because I tend to get very hot. I usually respond tushie temp at critical level , and then she fans my tushie till tushie temp stabilizes.

2. Jaffar/Giraffe. Inside Joke where she got jaffar from alladin and a giraffe confused, when we were building a disney puzzle.

3. She loves big big dogs. She wants a horse of a dog. We always make fun of those tiny tiny dogs, we joke that they aren't real dogs.

4. We are Jewish and we both love Israel. Politics aside, Israel is a beautiful place. This can be incorperated somehow.

5. She is a tea snob, and will only drink loose leaf tea. We also grow tea on our porch.

6. She is a super organized person. She is a executive assistant to a tech startup here in Chicago.

These are all Ideas you can draw from when you are filling in the letters with detail! I know this is a lot but I hope someone out there will spend the time on this to make it a truly beautiful piece!

    I put a lot of info but it doesn't need to be anything from what I said. I am all for creative freedom in this project. If it will be too complicated then go with something simpler!

    Maybe the photo I uploaded, if someone can pencil draw that out in a zoomed out way, to make it look like we are cartoon characters in a cartoon, that can be the backdrop. And we can add different characters in there that are interacting. Like we can have a guy being taken in a strectcher, and someone calling out Tushie Temp Critical! and another couple can be looking at a tiny dog and saying to each other, that's not a dog, that's closer to a rat.. (because we always make fun of tiny dogs.) and it can say the words on top? I'm just throwing ideas out!

    Thanks, Don't need Tshirts. I want one heck of a custom art piece we can hang in our room for years to come! I want it to be evident that a lot of effort was put into this custom art piece. I want there to be layers, things you can only see from close up, etc just lots of detail.

    Some inside jokes that can be incorperated into the art - (don't laugh) she likes to check my butt because I get really hot at night, she calls it checking my tushie temp. So we joke when she asks me hows my tushie temp, I say Tushie temp is critical, or stabilized, etc. You can try to find a clever way to incorperate this inside joke into the background of the drawing. This is one thing but there are more inside jokes.

    Hello! I uploaded a photo of me and her, she said she really like this one when we took it. Is it possible to somehow incorporate this photo into the art? I'm not sure it would look good, just a thought.. If you have a creative idea, run with it!
