One second...

my 1st design for main threadless challenge- tell me what you think.

Sup guys! I decided to join the main Threadless challenge.. the free for all concept, so this is what my lovely brain gave me.. a "Mistaken identity" sometimes it's not all about fireflies, flies do overtime too. =D i already sub it.. but not up for scoring yet. So.. tell me what you think? ^_^

The art is super nice. I would prefer a more centered placement. For me, the concept is either weak or I don't fully get it, not entirely sure. You obviously got skills.

Looks good man, A little bit big but good but why the weird Tee location?

My Concept is all about the mistaken identity when it comes to fireflies.. you thought you always see fireflies flying around with glowing butts.. but some of them is just a hard working fly. =D lol thank you, Musater.

just experimenting with the placement.. and just thought that it would look great placing it there. i tried putting it on the center but didn't work for my eyes. XD

Is the helmet a photograph? Doesn't look consistent.

At first I thought it wasn't needed at all, then I wondered if you meant it to be a fireman hat? (which it is not) That might or might not be an interesting twist to the concept.

i just got reference on it.. but i made it realistic as possible so i would be noticed right away, it's a hard hat, more on industrial hat. i think i should made it yellow.. XD

Manupix

Far too realistic IMO, esp the reflection: there isn't supposed to be a light source up in the sky, amirite?

Nice, but a little dark. The lighting on the fly could have been stronger. And I don't like the placement either. If there's no real reason to put the print in the armpit, don't! Also halftones look better when they're made in some other angle than 90 degrees.

if i did not get the reflection.. the helmet would be so flat and wouldn't be recognize easily as a hard hat. =D Just to depict a fly that do overtime.

Your foreground and background images are overlapping and confusing my eyes. Can we see a large version without presentation elements? I agree with everyone else about the placement. I agree with goliath72, this is a cool piece, for me.

cool design just too dark. i would like to see the character more.

the character is flat black, the only thing that gives the fly dept is the projected light and environment light. i was after reducing my color count.. just 3 colors black, yellow and white. i'm just a new guy here and looking at the shirts that being printed here are just have few colors in it.. sometimes i'm confused how to render my art.. weather i'm going to put lots of colors in it.. or just follow the mainstream shirt that are being printed?

I like it. But agree with Manu: the helmet just don't feet with the general illustration style. Also it looks a bit "decentralized" in the head.

i Agree also, maybe i should have adjusted it more and made the white reflection a halftone rather than pure brush strokes. =)

Just throwing this out there. What if you just swapped the yellow and the black on the character?

it would defeat the purpose of the lantern. =D

I would like this design better if it were centered and the halftones were treated differently- definitely need to be at a different angle. Maybe introduce more yellow onto the fly to lighten him up some. I also like that you used only 3 colors- no need for any more.

thanks Mudge, your right maybe i shouldn't use the halftone for the yellow.. it was more clearer and lighter before, but i already submitted it. hehe.. =)
