Thought this was quite a neat idea, although I have a feeling it has been done before.rnrnWould love any advice, especially on colour choices.rn
this is cool! I would say to keep this colors fir the design, and change the tee colors for a more flashy one. good luck!
Seems too simple...
How about 2 fish looking at each-other on each side?...
The shirt does need colour, that's for sure!
What do you think of mine?
I like the fish idea, I'll give that a go!
Added some fish in quickly. Still rough but you get the idea. Any better?
I'm not sure what else to offer... tiny details perhaps - in the fish and glasses. Try making the fish similar but different in a way (2 eyes are never exactly the same), defining them with details and shape - maybe a little angled like a smiling-moon (that might resemble closed eyes)...
i'm a little unclear why there are fish...
i think it needs some tape in the middle if you want the "nerd" message to get across...
I agree with Ornaart about the fish, also maybe make the black a more solid black instead of the kind of graininess it currently has. Its an awesome idea though.
Please come score/vote for my design: Astromen
Yes, the title doesn't work so well with the fish, it makes it less about nerd tears. I do feel the fish add something to it though.
Will try adding some tape to the bridge.
why not take away the fish, add the tape to the bridge and maybe some cracks on the glass :D ?
If you have the time, please comment on mine :) Hamburger Typo
that's a great idea, i could then add some drips coming out of the crack.
Ok, I think we're getting somewhere here.
Haha! i like it very clever!
You should try out some different colors! I think this design would fit nicely on a bright yellow or some greens.
Would you mind sending a critique back my way as well? I'd appreciate it!
I believe I can FLY
yes! i luv it
please critique me also at
So sad but cute, lol. I think this version makes the most sense. Definitely try it on a few different colored tees though. Critique mine?
Much better, this would work real well screenprinted for a gig poster or something too...
looking good this version is the best so far, in a way i think there still might be something missing, idk maybe have D&D dice for the eyes, just an option, though keep up the good work :)
let me know what you think of my design
Thanks people. Should hopefully get a chance to work on this tomorrow. Will try out a different colour scheme and generalyl try and polish it off.
In the meantime I have another design in the running, maybe you would like to vote on it?
Oops. Here is the link.
nice idea...i would lose the white ribbed section and mak it all black, perhaps you could put a small goldfish in the left glass? just a thought...
if you could comment on a few of mine id appreciate it greatly
I think this version is a winner. It's very good looking. Though I would not want to project such a sad image of myself nowadays, I certainly might have if I was a young, moody hipster.
Please give me some critique: http://www.threadless.com/critique/83366/Trusted_Companions
Ok, so what do y'all think?
Even better. Were did you get the wear-and-tear texture? It's awsome.
Thanks man. I got it from the Computer Arts website, on a tutorial on making things 'retro' or 'vintage' or some other sort of bollocks. Can't find the link for you, but it is on there somewhere.
Although I did kind of like version 2 with the random fish in the lenses, I think this version is definitely the best! As for t-shirt colours that it could be printed on, how about a light or dark blue? ...Or even a red?
it's brilliant! I think it's ready and that it has a big chance to get printed..
I would honestly score this a 5 if I saw it. Nice work!
Any thoughts on this puppy?
Well, I have an other shirt in the running right now, so will probably submit this once that one is over, still not sure how the voting process works and don't want the two designs to clash.
Plz check mine if you have a minute
Ha--I gave your current one a 5 earlier this morning without knowing it was by the same artist. Nice!
now you're cookin'... this is loooking fantastic. i say even get rid of the teardrops...
I'll try it, but I quite like em!
Thanks for the 5 Adam Joe, much appreciated!
I really like this and think that its ready to go!
I do like the fish in the glasses too - i think that could be a seperate submission if you worked on the fish a bit. Perhaps fish in goggles instead of glasses? Good luck - i'll be watchin' this one.
I think one drop is all you need on this. 3 is just redundant. Nice work!
way cooler that the previous versions!
i say submit!
iÂ´d be nice to see the placement, but i thik you are in good shape anyway
Swing by my "GREENER CIRCUITS" sumbission if like.. any feedback is more than welcome
Not really sure if it's working as a shirt.
I'm happy with the design, and all of you're help, but maybe this would be better off as a screen print, as I believe someone mentioned earlier.
try on a real tee template it's always better!!
Oh fantastic, thanks for that! It's already looking better.
haha very funny!! Submit!!
yeah I agree try it on a real tee and see how that fits maybe enlarge the image too, your almost there to submit, nice work!
let me know what you think
So here it is on a t-shirt. Would you wear it?
I love it good work, looked through the other designs and i thinks its tweeked to itb best. Love the idea, maybe im drifting from the fear thing, but how about blue tears in the eyes? Like a comprehension of the inevitable... could you look over mine please, Those Little Piggys, cheers. check mine out!
Ignore the comment, sorry bud, confused with a different design in another tab!
