    Lightbulb GO NUTS! Tablet Illustrator Design Draft

    Hi Guys and Girls,
    I just finished this draft the other day for my band logo, i'd just like some Advice/Ideas/Constructive Criticizm on things like:
    ~colour
    ~Background
    ~detail
    and overall thoughts of the design.
    My band is called "The Skin We Live In".
    we are a Hardcore/Metalcore band based in australia.

    Also, i realise there are quite a few uneven brush strokes, im working on fixing that up now, i was too eager to get the image up.

    The border of the letters are a little thin. It's makes the letters coagulate together and the lines hard to read. Maybe thicken a bit?

    Reduce this to 1 x 1 inch, can you still read it well?

    The point is that if people see the CD cover or t-shirt from across the store you want them to go "Hey! What's that thing? I want a closer look." So the thumbnail test is more important than you think.

    Good point. i'll work on thickening those strokes and possibly working a background into it. i was considering changing the colours of the image to represent brains, but then again, that could make it look a bit dull. i might have a play around with some more vibrant colours then draw up a few ides for a background. maybe changed to look like a zombies intestines to tie into the name of the band. any other critisizms are more then welcome! i haven't been doing this for ages so im always looking to progress!
