Design Rejected

posted by Lucas501 • 4 years ago

I uploaded a design and it got rejected by because of “quality”. The rejection mail said: “Quality: Your design does not meet DBH’s quality standards. For example: pixelation, blurry lines, distorted images, lack of concept, poor artwork.”
I would like to improve my design so it can be approved, but the mail didn’t specify what part of the design didn’t met DBH’s quality standards.
So I could like if you guys could tell me what can I improve on my design, as well as tips, advice and critique.

This is my design:

Thanks in advance!

Hey Lucas, regarding quality I think a good thing to do is take a look at some of the printed shirts and notice the quality of illustration and rendering they display. Your work here is not showing a sold grasp of some of the fundamental principles of art. The linework looks uneven, the drawing lacks dimension, volume, depth or any consistent sense of perspective. The shark is 2 dimensional while the rainbow vomit seems sorta 3 dimension, it’s kind of jarring. And water does not blend with the shirt well.
I recommend just practicing art in general, do some life drawing, pick up some books on color theory, and look at as much art as you can to start gaining a better sense of what successful artists do. Good luck.
