Adjustments

Tried to do what I could in the time I had! :) If you end up going with my design, you can always let me know if you'd like something minor changed in the final file~ Thank you!

Bird

Instead of a drop at the top (you can leave the one just right to the tree), would you see a silhouette of a bird flying from it, like reaching out in a metaphorical sense? Dunno what you think... :)

Re: Version 2 Sketch

Thanks, I really like it; the bottom with more jagged branches/roots and also the top, but I'm wondering if the drop is a bit feminine (?), maybe could be a little airy or something... In any case, it's close to perfection! Also, I really like how the inside of each loop of "infinity" makes a kind of wave that moves away...

Version 2 Sketch

I also posted a slightly revised version, in which the top incorporates more liquid, fluid forms, while the bottom has more jagged branches/roots. It adds another layer of duality/contrast. Let me know what you think~

Hi there! I am actually finishing it up within the next hour. :) I'm sorry I didn't have the chance to post it earlier, it's been a busy few days---

And thank you for taking a look at my site!! :)

Re: Suggestions

Hi again tzolotareva,
As there are only two hours left in the contest, I wanted to know if you think you'll have time to finish? It is very important to me since you are in the top 2, if the information can encourage you to continue! I hope to hear from you soon! Thanks again for time and interest!

Re: Suggestions

Hi tzolotareva,
Do I have any suggestions... mmmm hard to say since I can't put the concepts in my head into images, but you seem to have this ability :). Obviously I am open to continue with, for example, the continuity of the branches (top and bottom) that opens / turns into something reminiscent of time, evolution, cosmos, mankind (etc. etc.) (or something dual like your winning entry for "Life is short, hour glass theme"), while continuing to use the subtlety of your concept. I think subtlety is the key of your sketch. But if you don't find inspiration or you think the concept is already self-sufficient, maybe we should not strive either, because for now, I really like your sketch, the lines and all! Really good job. By the way, I went to your deviantart site and you do great art! Thanks.

Re: WIP

Hi tzolotareva,
Thank you for submitting! I love the simplicity of your design, but its strong symbolism at the same time! I encourage you to continue your work! I really like the shape of the design, honestly! Thanks!

WIP

Hello! This is a WIP sketch, just wanted to run it by you first. :)

I tried incorporating as many concepts from your description as I could in a concise manner. Some of the lines reaching out from the tree are intertwined to suggest DNA strands without being too obvious-- they then unravel. The overall shape of the infinity symbol is also suggested within the design, but again, it is more dynamic and not completely contained, as the other lines provide a jagged contrast. I tried establishing a good ebb and flow within the design, focusing in on dualities while creating balance and exploring cyclical representation. Please let me know what you think! :)

If you are okay with the shape of the design, I can go ahead and ink it in solid black~~
