"Love" and possible shirt

  • @Chip-Valecek If criticism isn't constructive then don't listen to it I say! This forum is full of great artists who support each other in every way with positive and fair feedback, even if they're a beginner or a professional!
    Keep going with your art 🙂

    @Ben-Migliore I am glad a few other people also responded to your critique because I too, felt that it was more of an attack on the artist than a critique on the art. One thing I have enjoyed about this forum is how willing people are to accept styles that may not be their own, and how they direct their critiques as suggestions rather than universal statements of right and wrong . You may not have intended your comment to feel dismissive, but that is certainly how it came off. In the future, instead of saying something like, "The background is lazily executed" which makes a negative statement about the artist's character you should say something like, "I would like more detail in the background." I would suggest that in future comments you try to focus on the art not the artist, avoid assuming that you know the artist's process, and recognize that your tastes are not universal. Learning how to give a helpful critique is an important skill to develop.

  • @Chip-Valecek such a creative take on the prompt and the shirt is too good!

    I love it

    Haha I could imagine that selling 👍

  • Hahaha I love this! As well as on a shirt! Actually I think it's perfect for a shirt ♥

  • @Ben-Migliore Hmmm I am sure you don't mean it the way you type but the words you say are pretty harsh to be honest. Art is in the eye of the beholder right?

    Update, I have the shirt being printed now as well as a different design I did during inktober. As soon as it comes in I will show you all the actually shirt.

  • If anyone needs convincing as to how positive and supportive this community is, just read through this thread. Amazing.

    ::Another Update:: I received my test shirts on Friday and I am 110% pleased with how they turned out. If you follow me on Instagram or friends on Facebook you might have saw pictures. If not here they are:


    I also added some more designs into my shop. I have been picking some that received the most likes on social media. Now the hard part, promoting and getting people to buy them.

    Here is the link to the shop: https://cshellmedia.threadless.com/

    Please let me know what you all think. What are the best ways to promote without feeling like you are spamming people on social media?

    @Chip-Valecek I think it is awesome that you are putting these on T-shirts. Do you mind if I ask why you picked the company you went though and how you like the quality? I've been doing a lot of research into print-on-demand companies and I'm curious what you picked!

    @juliepeelart good question, I did some contest's in the past with threadless and I know they are pretty popular. I also like how easy it was to use their site. I looked into Society6 but they seemed to be a little higher in price. I looked into local places as far as printing shirts but then you need to deal with shipping and billing. What I liked about threadless is at the end of the month any money I make goes right into my paypal. Now will I make any money? Who knows, but its worth a try.

    As far as quality, I was really happy with the look. It is screen printed so not sure how that will handle with washing. They say cool water and low heat or hang to dry. So we will see what happens there. What I was most impressed about was timing. When I ordered the shirts it only took 5 days for them to print and ship them to me. That was amazing in its own.
