The first design is the one I submitted. The second is touched up and given the worn look. I submitted the first one almost a month ago, and am wondering if I should resub the second or make any other changes and submit.



Also looking for critique in general to help with future designs. I feel like this is instantly recognizable, there haven't been a lot of Kill Bill or Charlie's Angels designs, and it's a good parody crossover. So, I'm wondering, is there something wrong with the execution of the design? Any comments are appreciated!

    Green with her kitchen knife, O-ren with Hatori Hanzo sword, and Elle as the nurse with the syringe. Being a silhoutette, I guess the eye patch is out of the question.

    Well done, good idea, and nice to see the 70s logo. Universal HD is showing the old show: because the filmed it on 35mm film stock, converting it to HD widescreen was easy for them.

    Very cool design. I like the scratched up look of the second one, but maybe tone it down a bit? Maybe 50% of what it's got now.

    @jackpot: I thought about adding a gray tone or something to show some detail, namely because the eye patch would look cool. But I decided to keep it close to the iconic Angels logo.

    @Zerkaboid: I agree, as soon as I posted it up I thought I overdid the scratch, if I resub I will tone it down. Glad you confirmed that.

    Thanks guys, I will make sure to comment on any critiques you post.

    Couldn't you just subtract where the eyepatch would be that way the yellow would show through? Pretty sure that would work

    That's what I was going to suggest.

    Great idea though, and I really like how it turned out. that would put it over the top though.

    Thanks again for the comments. I hear you on the eye patch. I'm still not convinced for two reasons. For one it's a side view, so you don't really get that great of a view of the patch. And two, if there was a detail for all three deadly vipers I would be all for it, but I don't know if it's worth breaking the pattern for one character. Even if the eye patch is awesome.

    Anyways, I've tried it out and would like to hear more opinions because I should probably listen to you guys or there's no reason to post critiques. Here's less scratch and more patch.

    and this one just has the reduced scratch:

    I have to say, I kind of like the one with the eye patch...

    I think the eye patch adds to it nicely. I think it works without the other two having that extra detail, since they don't really need it.

    Either way, i really like the work

    Sounds like most people like the eye patch so I will go with that. Plus as this is a planned resub after its month expires, that will be an extra change in addition to the worn look. And maybe the gods of TeeFury will admire my tenacity instead of being annoyed.

    JoJo,
    Could you explain why it looks like Clip Art? Is it that it's a simple design, because the design that inspired it is also simple? I have it linked below.

    Or is it that the execution of the design isn't perfect? I'd appreciate anyone else's thoughts on this too, especially if they are specific.

    Also I plan on fixing up the eye patch, that was just for testing that design.

    I know I'm outvoted, but I prefer it without the eyepatch. I think it preserves the integrity of the silhouette.

    I think it's awesome!

    Gotta keep the eyepatch! It makes it pop, besides its not Elle w/o it. This is SO Awesome that i would have to buy one for all my friends as well, Great idea, I really hope they print it because i need this shirt! (P.s yay for a yellow shirt!)

    You need the eyepatch! That's what let's you know who it is . Without it that would be like drawing captain hook without the hook.

    One suggestion though I don't think you need the black part in the middle of the patch. Just scoot the patch part itself to the left a bit and leave the bridge of her nose only cut off by the band. Does that make sense?
