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.

    Looks really good, can't think of anything to improve upon. Seems that a lot of good designs are getting tossed back and can't really figure out why.
  • litoQ

    Just updated my website. its still a bit buggy and the main featured image is supposed to be a slideshow. Looking for critiques on aesthetics and functionality. I know most of what's in here is design crits but I would really appreciate any and all feedback. Or even just a visit :)

    Thanks in advance..

    Hey Raz I just wrote on your flickr page: "I like it but he needs his tongue wagging out and eyes bulging out of their sockets"

    litoq - your site looks solid. only thing is that it is a little logo heavy right now, with the featured post being about the background download. i see the logo 4 times in various sizes when i first open the page

    Justin: Thanks for the feedback man! yeah once I add more blog posts the one in the middle column will find it's way to later pages. And if/when I can get the slideshow working that'll cut it down a bit too. Totally agree on the logocentricity ( I think I just coined a new term ) If over branding my biggest problem Im happy.

    Thanks again for taking the time to check through and comment. much appreciated!

    I'd drop the bleeding cowboy font and go with something hand drawn, and if thats the band's actual logo... I'd tell them to drop it.
  • Benjiman

    thanks, anything besides the logo?
  • smatherton24

    i think it looks real sick, have you tried anything with color? red/blue might looks kinda cool
  • Benjiman

    Thanks, and no i haven't tried that, i might try it tho...

    Weird that your other work got approved and this got rejected. I don't see a reason why this is any worse than your other pieces. I think its rad.

    My thoughts as well.
  • Brock May

    Yea I know, I already had a few folks critic it before I submitted it (and there was several changes typography wise) but I'm not sure what to do. Perhaps something with the mock? I was kinda lazy with mocking it, doesnt look as snazzy as the others. idkkk haha

    I don't see anything wrong with the mock up either.
  • Brock May

    submitted it with a new mock, and all that other jazz and it still didn't get fucking approved. So if the mod who keeps shooting this down could explain whats wrong with this piece, I would appreciate it.

    I honestly like this one. Like everyone else, I'm not sure why it got rejected. Hmm.

    Very hard to read. Honestly, if you didn't tell me what it said, I couldn't make it out. Using all caps with a script font is usually a bad idea as it makes it very illegible. The font choice seems lazy and the kerning/leading is also very bad. The idea could be alright, but it needs a lot of work.

    If amazing work like this is getting rejected my faith in Mintees is drastically diminished.
  • bleet

    its cliche, zombie chick with a gun.....its applied well yes, but what I have noticed about mintees is that the concept is king and if there is none then it wont be seen.
  • Brock May

    sooo, heres another one. Working on it now, so I guess any feedback would be nice.

    This looks great so far! I'd like to see if you could add the red to the creaturethingy on the top right side. Also, there is too much texture on the top left of the first "O." Spread it out a bit. (:

    Yea, that part I was trying to do the shaded moon thing, but a tad bit more realistically rather then having just half a moon. I'll definitely need to re-think the color scheme, I wanted to keep that kind of trademark color with Ash, blue shirt, brown pants and blood haha. But I'm not totally sure how to incorporate that scheme into earth worm jim, mainly because the closest matching color is ashes skin, but I really dislike going beyond 3 or 4 colors.

    Well I love the color scheme honestly (and the piece). I just feel that top right corner could use some color; keep up the good work Brock! Your latest work has been fantastic. Like Pitch said, I don't know why your other one got rejected. ahaha

    maybe change the details in the hands so they arent exactly the same finish framing in the bottom behind the image even if its just faintly, just ideas from my first impression

    My goal was to make the hands basically identical, but changing it up wouldn't hurt. I'll try out the framing idea as well. Cheers man!

    I'd like to know what's wrong with this piece, not sure why it was rejected...
    It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I don't think it's crap.

    Thank you in advance!

    Yeah, I tried something like that but I dod not like the result, will try again something similar, thanks for the input.
  • Brock May

    re-inked with bolder and clearer lines, more shading and detailing, I also realized you really couldn't tell they where boarding a ship, so I I'm fleshing that out more. Still working on it though.

    I like the characters, I was a huge fan of both franchises growing up and never in a million years would have thought to put them together. Pretty funny rendition.

    As for a suggestion, I know you have a certain style and do skewed figures but the anatomy is a bit too off. Doesn't need to be perfect of course but the arm holding the gun needs some re-working, especially the forearm. It's far too long. Other than that, I like it. Great job on Earthworm Jim without biting on the original.
  • Brock May

    thanks man! Its funny you bring up the arm, because I just started fixing that. I was procrastinating on that all day, but I got to the point where I had to fix it in order to move on haha.
