So I went to a comic convention this weekend and it shared the convention hall with a gun show. I blame the influence of the two and a little fast food on this design. To be done in white castle colors so hopefully it would take a second to register. Comments and critiques welcome.



Thanks!

    I'm assuming this is a Punisher reference. Looking at the design, I can't tell. There really isn't any way to connect it to Punisher unless you know him through the comics or movies. Just my opinion. I mean no offense in this. Just trying to offer constructive criticism. Maybe put a Punisher skull on the castle to connect it for people who aren't as familiar with the character?

    Lol. A skull might be a good idea, but I worry that it would detract from the White-Castle-ness.

    ...Never thought I would worry about something being less white-castly.

    Thx for the great feedback and for being so pleasant about it too. It tells me that I need to tighten up the art I was trying to show bullets in the background roughly in the shape of the castle. I will try a version with the skull too. Will post later tonight.

    Definitely would have to be on black shirt to maintain the punisher-ness of it. I like the concept..Im a punisher fan...at least the older comics anyway and as much as I like it something is nagging at the back of my brain that I just can't place, that there should be 1 more element to it...probably just me, but yeah on black id probably buy it.

    Wish there was an edit...sorry...but yeah I definitely think the punisher skull needs to be there, its the most distinguishable aspect of his character

    You could do "Frank Castle Gray-Skull", that way you could have both the castle and the punisher skull referenced as well

    Do the punisher skull behind the text, and make the castle more white castle themed. Boom

    cool love the bullets and the typo. About the punisher skull. You can use is below your design but not full. Maybe just nose and teeth part can be shown below the bullet/castle thing.

    haha not that easy man try to use the 3d effect of the white castle logo. Try to stylize the skull and maybe you can do the eyes and the nose by using the typography elements.

    Awesome. I saw the sketch & LOLed.

    I prefer the right-side-up skull hands-down, but if you want to mimic the look of the White Castle logo, maybe give him some kind of crown?

    OR--

    Restructure the design so that it more closely resembles Frank's symbol, i.e. w/ the really long teeth, and then you can use some of that space for the actual "FRANK CASTLE" words. So the eyes/nose/top edge of the teeth are all above the text.

    I think I'm gonna shy away from messing with the font too much. I did a couple sketches and think right side up work a bit better. although I will try the more dimention treatment on the teeth later. thx!

    Thanks a bunch Lexavian! I'm gonna avoid the crown cuz of the BK overlap but I really like the long teeth with centered logo. gonna try that over the weekend.
