    I am begging someone with skills to do me a favor, could you take the image below and make the entire thing anodized black except for the bottom cap top mouth piece clear window and middle small tube section, make those pieces anodized crimson red and the clear window have a crimson red film tint? I'm trying to get an idea pitched. Anywhere you think anodized red will make it pop would be awesome.


    For the guys that don't know this is the finest e-cig on the market.

    People normally provide a little "incentive" for this kind of work ... like credit, or a hearty pat on the back ... sweet compensation like that.

    What do you offer?

    Sorry I couldn't get the finer details to stand out because once I'd done the above it turned out like the image below....

    You've got to be realistic, you're pitching this to someone so it's for a job, we don't do 'work' for free

    What you're asking is a tad on the unreasonable side.

    If you check out the following there maybe a tutorial that *might* help you, because I doubt too many designers would help out someone free of charge for what is in essence a commercial enterprise.

    If you don't have Photoshop the I'd suggest GIMP.

    The addition of the "Lost Cat" poster in the background is awesome although these things usually get a Pedobear stuck in there somewhere.

    I don't read specifications, but I think this is more appropriate.

    Oh my gosh, you're right and I totally overlooked part of the instructions. This should be more appropriate.

    Brilliant.

    It makes me want to ask for some free Photoshop work just to see more twisted humor! ("can someone please retouch the cold sore off Sarah Palin's mouth for this promotional poster, please")

    You guys are wild! LMAO, I'm sorry I dont have any money to offer, I'm not affiliated with the company that makes this so please don't think that. I'm getting ready for a deployment with the army and I was trying to get the owner to think about making a design. Sorry for this guys.

    Honestly I'm not even sure what parts you are referring to. But maybe this will actually help.

    That's awesome and will deffinetly help, I'm looking for the top tip,the bottom cap it's about a 1/4" thick and the button, the part you have red I'm looking for just the glass to be a red tint, the red color is perfect that you chose. Any other areas that would look awesome with a red color will work I'm sure your judgement will be better than mine.

    I know you're trying to be specific, but honestly I have no idea what you're talking about. e.g. 1/4" isn't a useful measurement when I don't know what scale anything in the image is.

    I was going to do this for real tonight after family time, as payment for the fun I've had at his expense, but now you're on it. You are almost there. The small indent area just below where the hand/arm crosses needs to be red if I understand him correctly.
