I like that one!
You’re definitely getting closer, but that right leg is just a bit too large and long relative to the left leg and body. How soon do you need this project completed? I have an artist friend who could help, but she’s on vacation in Aruba. I’m sure she could sharpen it up for you next wk if that’s not too late.
Thanks for the offer. I think our problem is we have too many “artists” working on the project. I think we will get it soon. I appreciate the input. Fresh eyes become important when you look at something so many times.
I agree have a pro bring the concept to completion.
Front legs are disproportionate, the one just looks “stuck” on. I also do not like the bump coming out of the stifle. Is it supposed to be another foot or plumbing? Either way take it away, not needed.
I’m sure that “bump” is his left foot, but because he is slightly turned to the left, it’s not a perfect profile, as usually seen in classic silhouette images. I think I’d like to see a little more of that left foot so that it would clearly be seen as his other foot, rather than an odd bump.
Overall, I really like this picture very much. The slight rotation doesn’t bother me at all; I think it makes him look more lively. Sometimes, we take away so much that an image can lose that and just look like a logo. Of course, it depends upon what you’re trying to achieve. I think you’re almost there!
I like this one better too (vs. the others in a previous post).
Specifically, I think the biggest improvement is having the shepherd face right (makes a more positive initial perception). The angle of the head is just perfect!
In addition to the previous comments, I would make the head every so slightly bigger. I agree with Beverly that the “plumbing” is the other leg, but initial perception will be that it is “plumbing” 🙂
Where will these t-shirts be available for sale?
Thanks for the input. I also think we are almost there. Will never have perfection and I believe if we keep tweeking too much we will loose more, if that maskes sense.
What we arelooking for is that the dog represents what the quote says and I think the expression in this dog does.
Our goal is to sell these at IKC as a fund raiser. A portion of the proceeds will go to offset costs and a portion will go to GSD rescue. If they sell, we are considering selling them at our shows this year as well.
