Talking To keep it or to...... Not

Here is a swirl I did recently with the House of Kolor neon paints and some purple I threw in too. You guys decide whether or not its hideous or a keeper. I can't decide.

Nah, that's a do-over.

An interesting look, but I'd probably try it again.

It's cool in it's own way. Maybe Ibanez can start a splatter JEM series.

I'm leaning towards hideous...

As I said a few times before, if it does not look like a swirl in the tub, it will never look like a swirl on the guitar. Don't dip if you don't like what you see in the water.

Unfortunately, it looks nothing like a swirl at all.

Re: To keep it or to...... Not

Gotta say no here...the colors have potential but the pattern isn't so great.

Re: To keep it or to...... Not

I'd go the other way, it's not a swirl, but this kind of pattern or design does have some potential, perhaps not in clashing neons though...

It looks like a Jackson Pollock in the making. Perhaps you should explore this and not try to emulate swirls.

Re: To keep it or to...... Not

im the only one who likes it?im glad to see some neon collours mixed and wich is different to the normal swirls.i like the strainge splatter pattern.the fender splatter isnt it for me.
the fender bowling ball is cool and very different.and the dna's looks very much the same(from a few meters)so maybe you can make some better things like this but it is not that wrong for me.
