Bomber Dragon Skirt is here

For all those interested, the much anticipated Dragon Skirt is here.
I am very proud of this skirt and will state that it will not only outperform any other skirt on the market but is also by far the coolest looking.
I guarantee it.
Yes the skirt contest is still on. Please keep sending me your designs.
Check out the video presentation on the skirt.

Here is my kindergarden-esque design. Upon review, I realize the tunnel is a little too far forward. the squid arms could be pushed up onto the tunnel to make some room.

put some suckers noticable and make it so the arms "pop" out and look like they are moving. make his head tilt a little bit and make him red orange with orange highlights. blue graeen background for contrast and pull him out of that pic. sick doodle redpaddle. them giant squid are a crazy creature. you could keep the head design as well just put some life into that beast.
instead of those blue things you sould have its giant tenticles with suckers and saw teeth. maybe make one of his tenticles crawl up your skirt.
i don't think i will beable to top a giant squid.

the squid design looks like a big ol pecker and the two things on the sides look like a pair of pants with the fly open...
Cool design but I think it needs reworked

Sorry if it offends anybody But thats my 2 cents

Thanks for the input, you are both so right: a) it was way too 1 dimensional and b) the blue flaps definitely do look like lace up pants!

so here is attempt 2: more dynamic and less phallic!

the remaining tentacles would be wrapped around the tunnel in a death grip!

getting closer. needs to be more vibrant with the colors use shades of the same color or mix it with some yellow to make orange for the light and darken up the redish orange for contrast. the more color the better as long as you stick to a color scheme not just some random mixes. sometimes adding a little green will pop orange out or same with your purple back ground. here's some color of a living giant squid. very colorful. also notice how the tenticles fold.

make him bigger damn near the size of the skirt and have the tenticles fatty style(bigger) it will help with the realistic feel. make him look like he is grasping on to it and is unable to pull off. or he's sitting underneath your seethrough skirt suctioned cup to your sack.

i dig the bomb.

Just want your thoughts before I order. I assume I need as S-M, but as usual for my size I am right on the edge. My boat cockpit is 32" X 18.75" and I have a 30" waist. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
