Revised Logo: Almost there...


Here it is. Rough drawings, rougher type. In addition to this, my wife had the brilliant idea of taking certain panels, blowing them up and putting THOSE on shirts. For example, taking the panel I use for my avatar, putting that on the front at about 3" by 4" or whatever, and then putting the logo on the back.
Whatdya think? Comments please!

Hey Look ! Rough drawings ! What a GENIUS idea !! ;D

I think this is a definite step in the right direction . I would probably play a little more with composition and negative space, to tighten things up. Your wife is super right ! A lot of the panels, especially the ones with really strong expressions, are what you need for your tshirts. If I may add something...I LOVE the foul-mouthed ducks. In one of the strips there is a panel where they unleash a torrent of profanities...while smiling like angels.
I think you should consider that for a shirt (your choice to keep the profanities or not). Just an idea.

You're totally on the right track, dude. Love the panels idea.

awesome, can't wait for the shirts =]

Blow up the panels! Chunky = Good! I love the ideas of panel shirts. Then you can add the blog address somewhere on the shirt.

Any other requests for panel ideas? I have a few in mind, but I'd like to hear from all of you!

Paul said...

I like the one where the stripper is holding her boobies.

Is that wrong?

RoboTaeKwon-Z said...

There is nothing wrong with that, Paul. It just means you are ALL man!

Yer dern tootin'.

Love the blown up panel idea...give the little lady a see-gar! As for the logo, you might consider lettering the names of the characters by hand instead of a font. Again, to match the looseness and spontenaity (sp?) of the strip.

RoboTaeKwon-Z said...

Hey Spock!!! Done and done!! I re-lettered the names by hand, using the font as a guide. It looks much better. I'm still taking panel requests, so lay 'em on me!

Yo Bro! I like the cuss'n ducks, but I don't think I could wear it around your nephew. He'd start sounding like the ducks himself.

RoboTaeKwon-Z said...

I was thinking that myself, so I thought I'd do a "censored" version, with asterisks in place of the middle two letters of every swear word.
Hey, I'm not completely without a sense of what is appropriate.

You watch, here I sit in my control center reading all these and I'll get busted for looking at inappropriate websites.
Why'd you get fired?
I was checking out my brothers blog!
Cool, Huh?
What about rough model sheets of some of the characters? Just an idea from a non-artist type.

RoboTaeKwon-Z said...

Innappropriate? Why? There's no naked chicks. Well, except in Strip #3, but she's got a g-string on.
I'd do some model sheets, but as I've stated before and as all of the artists who check out this blog have already figured out, I never draw the characters the same way twice. I guess I could try.
