Nice! I think that did it. The cord still feels tangled up, but not so rigid. Awesome! :)

Love it! I like the new cord positions, and I think they'd look great either floppy or taught at these angles. Good work!

cute! my only suggestion would be about the cord...you might try it wrapping down & around clockwise, ending up at the top left (going on & off the page as it goes) I kind of want it to be more twisty & organic like cords get. If you don't try that, then maybe just take off the two horizontal lines at the bottom? Just some suggestions, it's fun & the background is beautiful!

I played around with the cord in various positions and I still don't know if I'm totally happy with it. I wanted to give the feeling of the cord when it's tangled up and taut, more than loose and coiled...if that makes sense. :) I might keep fiddling with it.

love the texture, colors, speech bubble, illustration. i agree that the cord's not totally doing it for me the way it just goes straight across the bottom twice, but overall i love it.

Ok, I do get that feeling of it being taut & wrapped around something. Maybe if the bottom two cord lines intersect on the page a little to the left..& then rotate them both about 30 degrees-ish clockwise? Making them less parallel to the bottom of the page might help.
