This is actually a finished piece, but it was rejected for the main section. I'd like to see what's wrong so I can step up my game.

    Not a fan of the text or the big white background for the text or the bendy lolly.
    But if it's a comedy sort of shirt I suppose there isn't much you can do to it
    not sure what to suggest

    The text was done to emulate a garbage pail kids card. The popsicle is bent because they wanted it to look phallic. Apparently straight ones don't look enough like penises.

    I love this idea, but I would only want it without the text and on a black shirt. I think it would look awesome

    the illustration is cool, but I do the type think needs a lot of work, the black outlines kind of make it harsh. as you can see on the cards, the text doesn't have any sort of outline on them.

    Yeah the stroke does suck, but I wasn't sure how else to separate the green and white. The green wasn't dark enough to do it on its own. Any ideas?

    I think that's actually the problem... it's underwhelming. *sigh* I need to take some illustration classes.

    yo.. what if you take the shadow of the pig skin, and used it as outlines around the letters.. less than black but darker than the green against white... it may do something .
  • RustyEight

    I'll try that personally. The shirt is already in print.
