Does this design make sense for a T-Shirt?

posted by shandsy • 5 years ago

This is my first time submitting anything to DBH, and I would appreciate any constructive feedback you have to offer!

I made the design with traditional media (pigment liner and alcohol-based liners) and later scanned it in.

Here is the artwork:

Here is the placement:

Is this a decent design for a T-Shirt, or is the background too bare?

I like it. The all over art is done amazingly. Great work!

Looks Good, Don’t worry about plain backgrounds it’s fine.

Would you consider using a different medium or going over a bit on the computer? I like traditional media a lot – but in this particular case, some of the texture in the blue and purple areas is a it weird and distracting from the image. The hair looks great.

Good luck with it,

It’s a cool design and you obviously have skills in drawing and design but I wonder how many customers would actually wear this tee. Designing for t-shirts is tricky because it not only needs to be technically well designed but also work for an audience who are going to part with their hard earned cash for a tee. The idea/theme/concept is as important as the ability to draw/design. Lucky for you you have the skills all you need now is a very appealing design idea. Take a look at the Top 50 Most Wanted for inspiration, after all they are the most popular pieces of art here. Good luck.

Very nicely done, I agree with Wotto, it’s only a matter a time for you because you’ve definitely got the skills to make it happen. Good luck.
