-Darl! Stop Flirting with the Customers!-

Darl had a job at a hardware store. A lot of the women who came in asked for his advice on DIY (in Darl's case, Destroy It Yourself), and he could drop in a few flirts at the same time, bearing in mind most of them hung on his every word, thinking he actually had some sort of knowledge on the subject. His boss got pissed off because you're not meant to flirt with customers and that's how he lost that particular job.

This looked better on my tablet laptop. Sadly the screen of that is darker and so when I put it on the main computer, the colours in the art are annoyingly brighter. But bearing in mind the lighting would be bright in this store, I guess it doesn't matter? It doesn't look so bad on my mobile devices anyway. So there's that. Yes, the details did kill me. This is probably the most detailed piece of digital art I've ever drawn. I'm proud of myself for that.

Nothin' ever (ever) happens in this town
Feelin' low down (down), not a lot to do around here
I thought that I would go right outta my mind
Until a friend told me the news
He said, "(Hey), you know that vacant lot
Right beside the gas station? Well, somebody bought it
And on the spot they're gonna build a shop
Where we can go buy bolts and screws"
Since then I've been walking on air (air)
I can barely brush my teeth or comb my hair
'Cause I'm so excited and I really don't care
I've been waiting since last June
For this day to finally arrive
I'm so happy (happy) now just to be alive
'Cause any minute now I'm gonna be inside
Well, I hope they open soon
I can't wait no, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When they gonna open up that door?
I'm goin' (yes I'm) goin', I'm a-goin' to the
Goin' to the (hard) ware I'm goin', really goin' to the
Goin' (hard) I'm goin' to the (hard) oh yes, I'm goin' to the
Hardware store
In my sleeping bag I camped out overnight
Right in front of the store, then as soon as it was light out
I pressed my nose right up against the glass
You know, I had to be first in line
Gonna get me a flashlight and a broom
Want a pair of pliers for every single room in my house
See those hacksaws? Very, very soon
One of them will be all mine
Guys with nametags walking down the aisles
Rows of garden hoses that go on for miles and miles
Brand new socket wrenches in a plethora of styles
All arranged alphabetically
And they're doing a promotional stunt
There's a great big purple sign out front
That says every 27th customer
Will get a ball peen hammer free
I can't wait no, (no I) I can't wait (oh when)
When are they gonna open up that door?
I'm goin' (yes I'm) goin', I'm a-goin' to the
Goin' to the (hard) ware I'm goin', really goin' to the
Goin' (hard) I'm goin' to the (hard) oh yes, I'm goin' to the
Hardware store
I'm goin' (yes I'm) goin', I'm a-goin' to the
Goin' to the (hard) ware I'm goin', really goin' to the
Goin' (hard) I'm goin' to the (hard) oh yes, I'm goin' to the
Hardware store

You can always adjust colours, light, levels, everything on an image without changing the original stuff by using adjustment layers if you work with PS (I use separate ones for print and screen to got get the right look for every media) and adding a vignette can also give a nice look. :XD: But yeah I will not whelm you with this blah blah, just tell me if you want to know more about that and I can tell you.
The view and the details look really nice there. ;)

Thanks for the tip! Yeah I really need to do that but maybe adjust it on my main computer instead of the laptop, so I can get the colours correct. I guess similar to how I adjust the colours of my traditional work.
I'm glad you like it!
