Hi folks. I'm about to embark on my first partial mash... a stout. I thought I would use this label to commemorate it.

Great label I love the background, however the words stout and the text at the top is kind of hard to read. I would suggest a different type of font but still use something with old script.

Yea, I'm not entirely happy with the way the font looks. I was going for the "age of sail" effect. I'll have to hunt around for something better.

The design is great.

Lose the serious pixelation though.

Did you draw this in paint or just way over-resize it? If it wasn't so jaggy and jpeg-compressed then it would look great.

Really like the name and the label minus the font as everyone else has mentioned. What program are you using to edit it?

Thanks for all the comments, here's the newest itteration:



I did most of the basic work in Corel Draw 9.. the main shape and the text. The background was done in Photoshop.

On the finished, hi-res image, the jagged edges are gone.

Much improved, if it really is the compression causing that then it looks great.
