Do post shirts you want to have fixed.
Don't post shirts that took you no time or thought.

I can't help you if you have no understanding of what I am going to tell you.
Please have a basic understanding of the fundamentals and a willingness to accept criticism and the self motivation to take that information and improve yourself.

This is not a post to do your work for you and they are just opinions so please don't get butt hurt.
Also share and share alike please. No leaches. If you have something of value to add don't clam up we all have things we are really good at and things that we suck at.

Do describe what you are trying to get across and what you think the problem might be in your own words. I can't read your mind.
Don't just flood this place with crap and expect to get better. Your going to have to do all the hard parts on your own. All I can do is point out some technical mistakes and suggest improvements.

    I think this is great! The only thing that is off to me is that the hand in the top right grabs too much attention (probably because the left doesn't have anything as large colored in white) and throws the balance from left:right off a little bit but not enough that it wrecks anything.

    i think the drawing is great! the problem is the "just slapped on it" font - why not better try to handwrite this and have this integrated?

    I was really hopping the text would say Roosters gotta Roost.
  • justLowd

    I agree. It looks like you put so much time and effort into the rooster, but it's just an incomplete design IMO. The type isn't well-considered, and I'm not a huge fan of the background texture.

    And to be completely honest, the rooster is technically really nicely drawn, but there's nothing too interesting about it.

    Haha I think I will give a hand drawn font that says "Roosters Gotta Roost" on this. I will also get rid of the background texture.

    this submission process is excruciatingly painful for the ego; might be about time to find a job at a warehouse/factory:



    any help would be appreciated, I'm getting too old for this
  • Luke Tarrant

    website header text, basically just the base of the design, texture and colour to be added.


    I think the 'DE' is a little off in size, let me know what you think though

    EDIT: have done changes and added some texture etc. I'm not 100% on the 'E' though. let me know what ya'll think

    the rooster is incredible. but the type is crappy. i like the feathers but maybe they are too dark, as in they don't look like they came from the rooster. i don't like the texture behind the type either. also maybe fit the design better to the tee. if your design goes from seam to seam, its gonna wrap around the sides of the body heaps. Also the mock-up looks blurry as fuck. I love the rooster illo you've done man, but it doesn't look half as impressive in that mock-up. Let it shine.
  • kuwahara

    I need some help. With or without stroke?

    Hi guys... Any idea why this would be rejected? I used to be on Emptees, and am now new to Mintees, is Mintees not doing pop culture parodies?

    Any crit would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  • TylerBramer

    Not sure what I want to change in this one but I know something needs to be changed. I think I might have to go back and completely redraw the business man.

    Yeah I see what you mean. When I get the chance I'm going to go back and and do a hand drawn font, get rid of the texture, figure out something to make it more of an interesting design, and work on placing it better. But I could not get the mock up any less blurry for some reason. I think there was too much detail for it to stay in focus when I shrunk it down....But I'm not too sure.

    I think you need a better composite. Having a stagnant figure doesn't make sense, try to use an action pose, relative to the hand. Then dress it up with a suit and add the briefcase. If it were me I would create tension, or a pull.
    So have the man with his legs planted firmly like tree roots, being pulled by the hand strings, with one of the strings snapping, The snapping action would open the briefcase and release a flock of paper merged into birds.

    He was kidding, just so you know and don't spend hours on this design. He described a design from Dobi, for Fullbleed. Apparently Quakerninjas are not only stealthy but sneaky too.

    I don't' see anything wrong with these really. They look consistent with other pieces in your portfolio. Probably some middle of the road stuff, that was just a coin toss. If your clients like them, and your fans like them who am I to judge.
    Sorry I can't be of more help. Maybe try submitting them at http://www.merchantees.com they have less strict submissions.

    Bow tie could use some work, make it bigger maybe? Cane could be slightly longer? just my 2cent :)
  • quakerninja

    Align the image, use line weights, Generaly speaking outside lines are fat, inside lines are thin, so maybe trim down the cheeks. So you have more room for tiny hatch lines to simulate the curvature of his wrinkles, and general roundness. much larger tusk, make one of them gold, and the cain look's like a snorkel. Try one of those diamond top, round style ones. Or just have the snorkels coming out his mouth, they are aquatic creatures after all, it would make sense and be silly. You can fix the bow tie problem by adding a collar for it to be attached too. Or use an ascot, because it looks like you are going for fancypantsness

    It looks more like a poor composite of mismatched elements, styles then a well constructed cohesive composition.
    There are some cool things you can do with an extreme perspective. Everything is exaggerated, shadows and Some atmospheric effects. I think a high contrast black and white style would work better for this. Completely re work it. Make it clean, tight and sexy.
