I just whipped up a pencil sketch today for an idea I have for a "Toe-Tag Hefe" for my annual halloween party. I think I need to increase the tag size a little, and might even put the "toe-tag hefe" on the tag or just a name there (maybe Frederick Miller ) I dont know as of yet, but before I ink this in, rescan and start adding color and text on this I thought I would toss this scrap to the wolves for feedback and ideas!
Thanks guys!

you have TALENT. that is wicked!

I would definitely put Toe-Tag Hefe on the tag.
my only critique is that right now the death's jaw looks like it is way too over extended. also, the head as a whole looks a little odd just floating there.

awesome concept though.

agreed on the floating head thing, if I ink this one and move forward I will be adding something for background, shoulders or something, maybe pull the "smoke" thing like my other ones. as for the mouth I too am torn on the huge gape but it does follow with my original reaper (take a peek at the original in my first logo post) Thanks for the crazy fast responses too!!

I've told you in PM and I'll say it here...your **** is SICK!! I love the toe tag but I wouldn't go any bigger with it. And I think Beserker is on to something, maybe just a tad skinnier on the lower calf to bring the jaw bone back in line with the upper teeth. Although honestly I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't read his comment....

i see what you mean about the jaw in your original logo, it does match very well. if i had seen that first, i dont know i would have mentioned it. by the way, PM sent, cause you have SKILL

the name on the tag seems to be a good idea, but do I put it on vertical or horizontal?
might get squished if its not sideways....

as for my art skills, I wanted to be an artist but the pay blows and I'm color blind! I have a friend do the colors after its inked and scanned and I repay him by letting him scoop the profits from any swag that sells with the art on it.

And while I'm at it... I'm in awe of anyone who can "just whip up" something like this.

I'm beginning to think that I should name my brewery Stick Man Beer to equal my creative abilities.

I would put the text tilted on the tag, with ABV etc below it
