ad astra per aspera (wip) v4 new question

ad astra per aspera is Latin and it means; through hardship to the stars! this is a design that I wiped up and it's meaning is very personal to me, the duds and briefcase signify hard work and hardship, him stepping on the papers signifies him going through the thought times to get to the stars! this is just a very rough draft that I used with a sakura pigma sensei marker, of coarse the final version will be neat and clean! I plane on making this in minimalist style. hope you like it, if not, tell me what I can change!

This is pretty cool! The man's figure is great. But the briefcase kind of looked like a nun-chuck to me at first. It could just be me, I'd probably just make it a little thicker. And the hat doesn't match the suit, it looks like an amazon adventure hat.

^what she said about the brief case. besides that, the rest looks ok to me since its a rough sketch(i like what you did with the paper trail also)

This is great chuck. Maybe if the case was turned a bit so you can see inside it with a stack of papers , showing more clearly that they are blowing out of the case. The pose on the guy is really good. I especially like his foot for some reason, haha. I saw your site btw and your stuff is really nice, especially for your age.

i like the b/w cause there isn't as much contrast between him and the background. that's just me though....i'm a fan of subtlety.

i'd even tone that black of the suit down a tad if i had my way but again, that's just me :)

It was too many subtle even for you, subtlety fan.... :)

I like the hybrid version, bt agree, you can make the black less contrasting

I must say. In the first view, I perfectly saw the nose, but now I can't stop seeing a Threadless happy face on it...

here comes the noob " what is a threadless happy face?"

thepapercut

Looking good, the hybrid background is nice, but I'd darken it up a tad.

Yea that darkening really made the moon illuminate and character lift off the surface. Good job, can't wait to see this on a T-shirt.

The text placement just isn't doing it for me where it's at, maybe try moving it around a bit. Design looks great though man.
