Here is actually a label I designed for my Mead.
If you guys don't mind rating it, critiquing it, telling me what you like, what you don't, etc. I'd greatly appreciate it.

This one is for a batch of dubbel that I'm pretty sure fermented too warm, and will as such be a bit off-tasting for a while:

I'm lovin those pinups, especially the apple bottom! It seems to me that while the classic pinups weren't actually made for beer labels, the could have been & should have been; they go together like bread & butter, kids & dogs, malt & hops!
Regards, GF.

I like it. I love images like that. That old handwritten, hand drawn type stuff. I find da vinci's sketches far more interesting than his actual paintings. This reminds me of that in a way.

A minor suggestion, not sure if you want to hear it. I think the beer information blends in too much with the background. May not be a bad idea to use that brown color as a background in the lower 1/4 of the label and make the text a really light color, like the color of the parchment. It will create a bit more contrast and help it pop a bit more.

Just my thoughts. I love it either way. Nice Job!

Yeah, I had put some blank space around the beer info, but I like your idea a lot! Thanks for the comment!
