I thought I'd throw this in the crits to see what you guys thought. Feedback appreciated, Cheers.
Another great Fatheed sub...
Love the arms by the way =)
Thats a pretty good response over 10 minutes! Thanks guys. I'll leave it sit in the crits for a bit before submitting it.
I think their bodies should be closer together, they are way too spread out on the shirt. Green is nice.
Thats kerning that you're talking about. very technical. I have tried to balance the characters, and make it so that the distance is suitable for the letter size. I think its ok at the moment, but if other people express an opinion, I'll make changes.
I have 3 emo-related shirts from here.
this could be #4. :P
Awesome, but perhaps they could have slightly different oufits or hairstyles? Or is it the same guy three ways?
haha i like this one.
Cheers guys. I wanted the focus to be on the YMCA style arm shapes rather than the characters. Like it is - with one character, it can be read several ways. Even as a chronology of events... 1) emo styles emo hair 2) hair goes wrong - cause of anguish 3) anguished look gives way to desirable emo myspace photo.
Its open to interpretation - and also, if I do different characters, it looks like they are all standing next to each other and that changest the dynamic.
I feel like I have an excuse for everything.
oh my gosh. i just noticed the ymca arms.
Some changes made. I thought I'd try to bring it together with a background. I added the Bleeding Heart tee as a bit of a tongue in cheek gesture. It's a little bit like Threadless eating itself - but I think it's cute. Let me know what you think. Thanks again.
love the new tee, not so much the bg
before subbing, change the title to E-M-O
I love your work man.
Bleeding heart is a nice touch.
The "e" is hard to make out, which I think is a problem in terms of being able to recognize what's going on. If it weren't the first letter it wouldn't be so bad.
I don't know if it would spoil the symmetry to much, but maybe if he were leaning over just a bit more the "e" would be more apparent.
Or maybe you don't want it to be too obvious...
Yeah the 'e' is a little hard to make out, but if you know it says something, THEN you see it. If that makes sense..
Oh, and +++++++ for the checkered shoes and... is that a threadless shirt? LOL
Thanks Wee straggler. Interesting point on the 'e' and thanks also L.T. and Khol.
I think I'll scrap the BG. Watch this space.
For the record I quite like the background. Isn't emo all about texture? V1 feels too smooth without it.
i think its awesome... the texture adds dimension and the "bleeding heart" tee is a nice touch... banana is a nice color for it but it would probably work on anything... i'd submit ASAP...
stilts... not exactly sure the colors are working but right now i'd focus on the execution and explore colors later...
check out my critique:
theory of contradiction
*** ummm, ignore the whole "stilts... not exactly sure the colors are working..." part... that wasn't meant for you...
even better with the background...nice!
oops that was meaant for V2 :)
I scrapped the b/g and bent the 'e' in as much as I could. I accidently deleted the master file so I have to do it all again - but I've got this to submit in the mean time.
haha...he's wearing a threadless shirt! I really love the character and the story. It's witty, and although it is definately poking fun at the stereotype, I don't think it's at all offensive or exclusive :-)
lol niko. I get the feeling that even if some like the background, too many others will not like it.
thats it you got it on v3 fosho!
take a look on my work please...
this is superb! $5
i'm on strike until you bring the background back... ^_^
haha. Thanks guys. I think I'm gonna sub as it is. Cheers!
actually you are prolly right, more people will vote no on the b/g......
I am digging V3 :)
you make designs from sketch to sub really quickly. if you ever wanna do a collab with a noob... i'm always... ah who am i kiddin ill never have an idea as good as yours.
here's to a fututre print
Cheers for your help guys. This is now subbed and can be found right here.
I went with your E-M-O title suggestion, L.T.
love the background, but I won't punish you without it (in scoring)
you have my intentions......
i like this version best
!!!! love it!
