Re: Wanted in the Woods


Good idea, really dig your sketch of Robin Hood.

Hope you don't mind friendly feedback. I would have used a brown shirt since I'm guessing this is supposed to be on a tree or keep the same shirt and make the texture look more like stone. Would have also been a nice to have the arrow throw a shadow down onto the shirt (look at Fee! Fie! Foe! Fum! shirt in the fog to see what I mean).

Good luck to you.

Ya know, after reading so many of the ugly comments on the forums lately, this helpful, constructive criticism almost made me want to cry in relief :-)

To the designer, I'd very likely vote for and buy a resub that implemented the above suggestions. I'd be more in favor of Keelmy's suggestion to make the shirt brown over changing the texture to stone, however. As the wooters so often complain, I'm sick of asphalt in general and only buy it now when I really love a design. Also, we have very few good brown shirts.

Agreed. The suggestions are good. I like your style. It's a good illustration.

Thanks, I like the good criticism. The only reason I didn't put on a brown shirt is because I'm not a big fan of brown shirts, although I'll give it a shot and see how it looks. And the shadow fro the arrow, I actually intended to do that, and well just forgot. Thanks for the feedback!

I agree with the comments above - really nice illustration of Robin Hood! I think the cast shadow for the arrow & brown for the shirt would be good changes too. This is one of the few shirts I'd wear, even if it stays on asphalt. But I'd re-vote & buy it on brown! Nice work!

Thanks! I think it may be a bit too late to make changes for this derby, but maybe for another one I'll fix things up and make it a bit more fancy with the shadows and what not

Love the style... very nice drawing too. I like the perspective on the arrow. Have to agree it may be more effective on a brown shirt. But I'd still say this one is really great.

Really love the design on this one, but i do agree that it does need some tweaking. Brown shirt would definitely help. And, just brainstorming some more ideas, maybe you could like do a hole in the tree showing an owl peeping out or maybe a robin hood's hat hanging from an arrow or something. I dunno.
Either way it's GMV. If it gets Re-subbed i'll totally vote for that too.

What is this?

I actually like the use of asphalt here because it gives a feel of being in the woods at night during a full moon. Methinks its great!!!

P.S. I tried clicking on your signature, but there appears to be no link.

Thanks! That was the reasoning behind the grey, and mostly because when I paint my trees tend to be more grey than brown. That link doesn't work sorry about that
