The edges are too rough... but you don't have photoshop, so there's not a hell of a lot you can do about that.

Neat design though.

But seriously, you REALLY need to get photoshop.

It doesn't HAVE to cost $600.00... I know this guy named Kaz Ah, and I got him to do a search for photoshop for me.  He found this one store, called Freedown Load, which gave me a wicked deal on it.

heh.

or you could try http://www.gimp.org">the gimp. It's free (gpl), cross-platform, and almost photoshop.

good luck!

There are some great classes available that you can take, for reasonable prices, to teach you a lot of the shortcuts and such in Photoshop.

Or you can do what most people (myself included) do, and just fumble around with the program for months and months until you think you know what you're doing with it.  :)

Online tutorials, through adobe, or just googled.

However, I advocate the 'fumble around' approach.  I learn better hands-on.

Don't get me wrong, when I decided to get into digital painting/drawing in a serious way, I walked my ass over to the local compshop, with $400.00, thinking to pick up BOTH Adobe Photoshop, and Corel Photopaint.

Yeah, I didn't have enough to buy ONE let alone both.

So, I downloaded photoshop.  I could never get a downloaded version of Photopaint to work, but I had a valid copy of it at this one job where I did advertisements for the company, and in some ways I preferred it to Photoshop.

Actually, in a LOT of ways I preferred it to Photoshop.  But I haven't been able to use the program in a few years now, and I'm so accustomed to Photoshop now...

I guess I'm the only guy here who refuses to use commercial software, even when I can get it for free.

Linux - operating system
GIMP - raster graphics software
Inkscape - vector graphics software
Blender - 3d modelling/animation

always worked for me! maybe some of you should give freshmeat.net a search before you shell out the hundreds for a commercial equivilant. just a thought ;)

"You can't raise a baby on motor oil" from "Neighborhood #4 (Kettles)".

i agree with the above...photshop, or an equivalent graphics program, is a necessity for this sort of work.

as far as the design goes, i think you're getting too bogged down in making the lyrics literal. it's just kind of heavy-handed and busy. if i were trying to convey the same lyric graphically, i might try drawing a baby with a bottle in its hand with the world "oil" on it. then on the t-shirt, it'd just be the baby with its bottle, maybe an arcade fire logo done in baby block style letters.

just my thoughts.
