Need to re do the design for a few reasons:
1.Didn't check to see if it was at 300dpi when working.
2.Meant for large scaled print, but is by far small, and all color work was done in Photoshop.

But aside from that, me, and my friend will be releasing these after the limited edition line work one used to raise money. After that were releasing this colored design along side the alternate color, on both black, and white shirts for our release.

We're working on many things, and getting ready so we can hit hard with this.
We'll be releasing many other designs, and merch.

We also have a few posters in store after we do some shoots with the release. Much fun, and many great things to come.

Would love some critique for sure though.

Hope everyone is well

    Photoshop coloring doesn't make any difference in the print. You just have to have the colors on separate layers. Definitely shouldn't mess with a stock font with perspectives and curves and shit, it makes it look very amateur. That being said, the illustration is not strong at all. Its 3 colors for no reason and will cost you more to print. There's no texturing, the background is really weak and obviously brushes you slapped back there for a quick fix. the placement is too low as the design runs off the mock. The stroke is unnecessary and the anatomy is pretty off. The line work is pretty bad as well. Practice practice practice.

    Honestly you'd probably be wasting more money getting all that printed than raising money. Especially since you didn't check the file size, your clearly unexperienced (and most likely young) and shouldn't rush to print stuff thinking people will snatch it up. There's plenty of brands that start using established artists and don't sell their stuff quick. Not everyone is going to like everything. Its not a fast cash making process and takes a lot of money and research. You may think you know people that will buy it, but what happens when and if they do? Who will be next?

    Do a little research and ask questions if you can't find the answers yourself, the community would be glad to help out as long as your trying.

    Stock font's noted, thank you! And thank you for your critique much more what I was expecting compared to a few people who went at it in the post section. Me, and my friend are holding for a while before we release anything, we are re doing the work do to our miss hap. But we are working on making it stronger, I would love to add texture, and many things to my work, I just happen to have trouble with textures, not sure how to go about them, and how to make it all work nicely.
    If you can point me somewhere that could help or give me some tips it would be very much appreciated.

    Were not printing until we have more stuff prepared such as other designs for after our release.
    I'm glad you are able to see that, everything I'm doing is self taught, so I'm doing what I can, and learning from others who are nice enough to give me a minute.
    I don't think people will snatch it up, but we know we have potential with all the people we are marketing towards, our connections, and our plans to get people to come back, and interact with us.
    We have a lot of content in store to provide when we launch.
    I am well aware of that, we are gonna be putting a lot of money, and time in this.
    I've also been studying things for sometime, my only fault zone that I'm aware of is my knowledge in apparel designing (Textures, effects, line work).

    I would, and will, but sometimes it seems like people previously from emptees have their heads very high in the clouds about things or are just to sour to talk with.
    It seems like some people have to be experienced for any respect with some people which is just quite unfortunate sometimes.
    I really appreciate your input, so thank you very much for your time, and feed back :)

    I was curious if you could tell me what's wrong with the anatomy, and as well as, the line work?
    Right now those are the two things I wanna concentrate on.
    As for the strokes, Color, Brushes, and Text. I'll make not of that :3
  • justinjuno said:1. Brand Name is to long.
    2. The over all design is poorly illustrated and the line work is inconsistent.
    3. The type/font is also poor in choice.
    4. Lose all of the splatters and dripping blood, liquid, whatever.
    5. Once these are fixed, rework your placement.
    6. Realize the concept isn't visually appealing or one that is interesting to sell (toss it).
    7. Research, save, and start from scratch.
    8. Communicate your ideas to a professional and hire them.

    1.Okay
    2.I'm very un experienced with apparel work, self taught.
    3.Noted
    4.Most likely will, me, and my bud are gonna make it much stronger
    5.Definitely will, it bugs me
    6.I guess, but we will make it better, it was weaker by far earlier
    7.we are saving, I've done a lot of research in certain areas, and we have tons planned out for when we officially launch
    8.Don't have the budget, and I'm stuborn enough to want to become a professional in all the areas of art that I work in in, plus I need to do to my limitations. This way I get what I want 100% :3

    Sorry if the last part came off cocky ^^:

    If you don't have the budget to hire an artist and this is the work you can do yourself, save your money and don't start a brand. Printing shirts like this will only result in you losing money. Save your money until you can either afford to hire an artist or until your skills are good enough.

    Little rude, but I wasn't aware there were approvals for critiques. It could just be timing or file quality? Just what I'm thinking considering this place does things exactly the way emptees did.

    I apologize that my work isn't the best it could be yet, but no reason to complain, it's just for critique for a reason. Now if it was up for sale or anything else I could see why you would bark about this.

    But oh well, sorry bud

    There is no approval process for the critiques section.

    You've been around since "actual fuck" and you don't know there's no approval for critiques?
