Re: Veggies are SO METAL!


So your buddy wanted to start up this awesome death metal band, and use a vulture as the mascot. Effin' sweet, right? Except he's a vegan. Can a vegan truly channel the spirit of metal? With enough tomato juice and badassery, it can be done.

NOW TOURING AT VARIOUS GARDEN CITY LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE USA.

This design is okay but it looks like most other band t-shirts...though I do like the vulture.

Beautifully drawn. The only thing that bothers me is that it looks like you forgot to color his legs. Did you do that on purpose? I mean, I guess it works, but it kinda sticks out to me...

Anyways, still GMV.

That was on purpose. They were shaded before, but it ended up making the text hard to read, so I left them as a solid tone.

Great illustration. He looks so sad though... vultures shouldn't be vegans.

The illustration is awesome and the design is so clean. This would look great on a shirt. I'd have to pick up one for my sister who went back to vegetarianism from veganism because she couldn't resist cheese any longer hoho

It is a truly beautiful illustration...but [for me] the impressionistic style its painted in makes it too pretty for death metal. Vultures and buzzards are VERY messy eaters they rip and tear and pull...so perhaps some more violence with the strawberries - that red juice is a perfect parallel to blood. Some squashed strawberries grasped in his talons and some juice on his beak maybe? Or maybe have those talons grasping and slightly puncturing the type! Even if you don't want to go with the blood thing (because of the vegan element) I think you were a lot closer to traditional death metal with your pencil sketch and it kills me that you lost some of the detail from that sketch. Take that sketch, refine your original line-art, grunge it up with some stippling and texture and you've got yourself a hard core death metal shirt. See an example of what I mean in this LINK Of course this is all just a matter of opinion. You've obviously got mad skills and you are a great artist so please don't take this to mean that I am not a fan...cuz I am! And I apologize in advance if I horrified anyone with my suggestions.

Please submit this someplace else. Even without the fake band theme, it would look great with just VEGAN VULTURE on it. Let me know if you put it up elsewhere, I'll vote/support and buy it.
