    It doesn't matter if you can change the colors of the design, the problem we have is that the lighting on your instagram style designs doesn't look like real life. So no matter how much you change the colors, when the shirt is printed it is never going to look like your mock up because of the filter you put over it. It is blatantly misleading to your potential clients.

    You'd think that a design for such a high-profile client would be at the top of his portfolio, but alas, nowhere to be found. However, I have no doubt that they are of the same caliber as this timeless banger for none other than The Beach Boys:

    Yes I've created some designs for both of them based on my drawings and also photo manipulation work.That was ages ago(Looking back, those designs look pretty terrible honestly) .And they were rejected except just one design.I have the emails sent to me by their "Creative Director".

    it was more of a joke than anything. you'll probably have to send them a hightail link or something anyways so why not just link them to the original?

    look, there's nothing legally wrong with what you're doing, but it is lazy, uncreative, unoriginal, and embarrassing. it'd be different if you used that image and did something creative with it. but literally all your doing is finding something, and then charging someone for your efforts in finding it. please keep us updated on if anyone buys this found picture from you, i'd like to email the person that paid for it, show them that it's free for anyone to use, and we'll see how they respond.

    But I was just wondering about how did you find that image
    http://www.mintees.com/tees/358572-jellyfish/

    Maybe you also downloaded a copyright free image from somewhere.

    So I guess I'm not the only one who uses copyright free images.
    (And I don't see anything wrong with that,If it's copyright free material)
    Just pointing out that.
    Cheers man.
  • cmeyers

    to be honest, that design is just as lazy. well... he put in a tiny bit more effort than you but same principle.

    go ahead, continue to do it. but you won't get very far and you won't be taken seriously.

    it's obvious that you don't understand. it's not a matter of legality, it's a matter of taking yourself seriously as a creative person.

    Rush job. Band asked for a jelly fish on a t shirt. I put a jellyfish on a t shirt. It got approved. I got paid. Same thing I guess, but my entire portfolio isn't based of of random google images. Not gonna lie and say that incubus design isn't lazy, but i wasn't asked for something hand drawn or overly complicated either. I'm not slapping random pictures on shirts and posting them for sale. I think there is a bit of a difference between the two. I can find a t shirt right now that has 50 plus likes that is literally an image off google with text as the top from a " heavy hitter". I'm sure everyone has done something like that once. It's just hilarious that you are saving images off of google and selling them online for " cheap" as " designs". I don't do that. Was that incubus design posted for sale on here? Get the fuck out of here.
  • justinbryant

    Although Daniel's Incubus shirt is just that jellyfish photo with their logo over the top, he still did more work than just finding a free for commercial use photo and slapped it on a shirt. Like Corey said, not much more work, but my eyes he at least created something "new" instead of just slapping the purple jellyfish on a black shirt mock. There is a difference.

    Being a designer means creating a product, not searching for that perfect legal photo to sell to someone who didn't want to/know they could do that themselves.

    You did absolutely nothing with the image besides slapping it on a mock up. Why should a potential client pay you for a copyright free image they can download themselves?

    Maybe its just me, but if a client contacts you about pitching designs but none are accepted, can you really list them as a client? I wouldn't. I feel that it is blatantly misrepresenting yourself and your work by listing them as actual clients.

    I know I hardly comment, post but whatever. Regardless of what everybody thinks or is actually saying about starryeyes, what I hate about what's happening here, is somebody calling out somebody and yes rightfully, but now everybody else is using that opportunity to speak their minds of what they we're thinking all along but never had the balls for to say. If it was a matter of ripping, okay. Now it's mostly a matter of opinion. Person A to B:'hey you suck at this'. Person X:'yeah person B, I always thought you sucked but now that A mentioned it I thought I mention it as well, ya know... just so you know'.

    Kinda lame.

    I didn't think I had to specify, but if someone pays you a kill fee, then I would be fine with listing them as a client. I personally probably wouldn't do it though. But looking at Starry's other posts, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he pitched stuff for free and didn't get a kill fee on any of his designs.

    He already explained his design. He didn't literally take an image off google, do absolutely nothing to it, then pass it off to the client. Sure, by his own admission, he didn't do a lot of work on that design, but he still did something with it. You just slapped an image on a mock up and are trying to sell it. Incubus couldn't just take that jellyfish photo and slap it on a shirt and have the same exact design Daniel did for them.

    2.If you take a look at that image carefully,I did not take the full image for the design,I've changed it's colours before put it on the T-mockup.
