I got inspired by the Bunnay's latest tattoo and thought the retro Sailor Jerry style art would do well as a beer label.

Great image, but the font is fairly hard to read.

Keep the gradient on the lettering, but pick a cleaner font.

Nice!

In the full size version the font had a clear glow around it to help differentiate between it and the background. But yeah Flickr makes it hard to read.

Looks very nice. Like others have said, kind of hard to read due to text style and text color where interacting with image.

I'm a big fan of vintage pin-up art, airplane nose art and such, thusly this is right up my ally!

Schlante,
Phillip

Yeah the full size version has a glow around the lettering that made it a bit easier with the overlap. But the reduction in Flickr all but obliterated that. I am going to make a few adjustments tonight to see what I can do about the readability.

Thanks for the feedback.

i also think the "E" in pale is interacting with the image too much, plus it gives a bit of an off-balance feel since the "A" in ale is outside of the skull. other than that it looks awesome... i like the girl's arm up by one of the "N"s. looks almost like she's hanging off of it (although it does make whatever is in that hand pretty unclear)
