Threw this one together for a Porter I made. Named it after a hunting buddy of mine. I am on the fence with this one myself. Not sure if I like it or not....

It may be better if you lightened the background color, that green is way to dark, and seems to clash with the pic in the center.

That is a lot clearer than the original. Very nice set up. Love the recycle line, very important (no bottles=no beer). As a fellow duck slayer, I think this pays a great homage.

Now I would change the text from black to a lighter color so it reads better. Otherwise I think it looks good. I like that there's a consistent theme/layout/style to all of your labels.

Killing a little time tonight and decided to tweak this one a bit more. I lowered the opacity of the text on both sides. I also toned down the ducks and calls on both side. Last, but not least.... I changed the front font. Think this one looks a lot cleaner.

Any better?

I think you need to mess with the balance of the center image, but I'm worried that b&w or sepia will make him too camouflaged! Some kind of effect would be good...

Actually it is beefed up with the cartoon a bit. I played around with it some and found if I go to far with it most the image went to far black. I also tried oil-a-fy (or what ever that is called...lol)... that was a big mess....lol

I wonder if I darken up the ducks a tad more maybe that would help balance it some?
