did he get run over by a steamroller?

or is it some kind of cookie monster crab?

Also what's that dried white residue behind him?

not getting that at all from what i'm seeing.

maybe add a cup or something? and the milk i drink doesn't break apart like an iceberg...

It just doesn't look at all like what you want it to look like. I'd be happy to give you advice, but my only advice would be this needs a complete redraw. Unfortunately, judging by the fact that this is what you submitted already, I'm not convinced you're up to the task, artistically speaking. Maybe you could put the idea out there and get a more established artist to do the illustration itself.

this is pretty dreadful. spend more time sketching and less time computering.

Yeah, i wasn't sure if it was clear, but the people I showed it to before I submitted it got the concept correct. The milk was based of an illustration of water I saw on a shirt, using grey colors instead of blue. I guess I should have gotten more opinions first.

But melmike, I think you're right, I just started over. Here is take two! Better? Suggestions? I added the cup. I wasn't sure if it was necessary to get the concept, but I think it helps.

how about taking it one step further, and doing the classic nirvana album cover feel, with a cookie on a line. then instead of "got cookie" you do something in the font of nevermind.

or just avoid the typography altogether. Unless you do it properly its just going to detract from your finished design and typography isnt as easy as most people would like to think.

one more thing in regards to the type

the whole "got milk" campaign is super old and overdone. it's not popular anymore and loses any credibility.

lose that whole part of your concept.

ha its a cute idea its getting better don't give up and right now jus looks like he's in water .. make it thicker like he's actually in milk. He might even have the milk over him a little bit play with the opacity of him behind milk... you could go even further add a hand gettin ready to dip a cookie or a plate of cookies :)

Cookie monster floating in a glass of milk with a cookie life preserver ring, dunking a cookie in a glass of milk. Make it happen!

richard.muller.370

Okay, so I didn't want to give up, but it wasn’t working, and there wasn’t a way to try and save it I could think that was good enough that I would want to buy the shirt (although the cookie life preserver ring, dunking a cookie in a glass of milk was a great idea), so I started over and did this. So here’s a whole new sketch that I’m submitting, so if you have any constructive criticism before the days end, please let me know. Thanks!

Title: “Watching Reruns of the Old Days”

“There have been many characters in television history that have found the comfort of posting in front of the television: Homer Simpson, Al Bundy, Peter Griffen, Bill Cosby, etc, etc.. And now Cookiemonster finds himself among the roster of all American characters sitting on the couch, enjoying a cold beverage (with a cookie) and catching up on his shows.

taz-pie

sorry, but this really isn't great imo. it looks half-assed.

Deathbycoleslaw

I like the couch one. It looks "bad", but it looks like you mean for it to look that way and therefore it's a coherent design. As for the actual content, personally I like it because I like simple, weird, non-sequitor designs, but I doubt it would be very popular. I'd wear it, but I'm a weirdo, I guess is what I'm saying.

it looks like cookie monster's head is ripping open... because you have depth to everything but his mouth... try adding some black in there

heres an idea you can have for free. 'cookie MOONster'

cookie monster... but he is a MOON.

you're welcome.

i like the glass pic the best, the other 2 have a big drop in quality compared.
