Thanks!

Edit: This supplied image is a jpg...is there anyway I can change the color of just the shirt through photoshop?

1. Select the Magic Eraser and set the tolerance to about 10 and then erase the white background
2. Select the area outside the shirt and do Select > Inverse
3. Create a new layer and use the paint bucket and fill it with white
4. Right click the new layer and select blending options.
5. In blending options, change the blend mode to multiply. Select Color Overlay on left and change blend mode to multiply.
6. Now you can easily change your color in color overlay!

This is a shot of one of the shirts I created. (have a few more styles than this one) Looking for a little feedback on if you think a design like this would sell or not. I have about 120 of them already created.

I dunno where to post so I thought I'd post here.

I launched my line 6 months ago and it went very well (Based in London) It was all done online. Every design is hand done and I screen-print each t-shirt myself.

Within the 6 months I managed to get a shop in London to sell my gear (GShock East)

If anyone lives around East London feel free to check it out !

Heres how it looks like in store and some other random pictures.

Those last two shirts and the other various colors...crack! Simplistic and clean (although I personally dont do skulls). All the same, good job...especially since they're hand done.
Why's your website down?

finally got a logo, sort of. It is in the works. What do any of you guys think? Also, what is the best software for this type of shit other than photoshop or illustrator? I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Photoshop and Illustrator are industry standard, although Illustrator is used for logos.

I know but the only problem is the price. Any way to get either for free?

I actually like the name other than the goods part but the logo sucks. The cooper black trend needs to stop and originality/hand drawn designs need to start.
Illustrator or Photoshop are the only legitimate ways to make any graphics. If you don't have the money, torrent it or download the free trial and reinstall your computer software every month when the trial expires so you can download it again. Or find someone with it that is willing to give it to you and then just get a serial number off the internet.

I appreciate the feedback, it means a lot.

I understand what you mean about people needing to start trying their own stuff, but I was really only experimenting with different things and this is what looked best. I will adhere to your advice and try to find someone with photoshop and illustrator, though.

I have some good ideas on paper that I have hand drawn, but I really just didn't know how to apply it, if you know what I mean. I really want to keep it simple, though. That's one of my goals.

And yeah, thanks for the constructive criticism! Hopefully I can make something better next time and hopefully by then I will have better software. Thanks!

I love a brand with good presentation. Those bags are dope, might have to steal that idea.

What does the brand stand for?
If it already dropped you need more social media. Blog only has 1 entry.
Not really my style but I would say work on getting yourself more established. Build a solid fondation.
having jackets, beanie and a variety of stuff is cool and all but you need to build a fondation first or you'll burn out to quickly.



Something to think about. If people don't know who Commonly Used in the first place how are they going to be able to determine who CMLYUD is. The term itself is not a "commonly used" term


idk about you bro but if you really wanted to know something what would you do? go online and search right? i know what you mean tho. to be honest, if people want to fuck with 'cmlyud' or 'commonly used' and want to know more they would go out and search. im not really the type to brag or im not really in this for the flashy lights and shit, but to me i love it when people do research. i mean look, if someone saw "CMLYUD" they would wonder what it is and maybe ask someone or go do some research. around my area, thats what people have been doing and ive been getting some buzz out of it... its a mystery my nigga. hahaha.. people who search more, those are ones i wanna target.. its all love man

dont get me wrong tho, i love hearing people's opinions. but alot of them love to push it to where they think they know better, but im not gonna hesitate to make my own mistakes. also something to think about, dont let anyone fuck with your dream blushing

I just feel as long as you're not completely ripping off from another brand and not half assing with your work, whatever your vision is will work as long as you're pushing and expanding is right. Every brand takes criticism, don't change what you do because somebody else with different taste than you doesn't like an idea you put out.

True. That helps single out the fan boys and the long term supports. The fact that you have your market pin pointed already is good.
I Google searched CMLYUD and your site came up which is a good thing.
I just didn't know if it was a common term you used on your site until now, or just something new you were trying out.
But by all means in no way was I trying to detour you in your dream though. I just like to play the opposite end sometimes.

Thank you very much ! And I appreciate the feedback.
Im not gunna lie, I'm a massive fan of Mastermind and I love Pirates and the manga One Piece so I went with the Skull. It was a tricky decision cause I know skulls are a bit played out, so I knew I had to add a lil twist to the design rather than just draw a basic skull.

The skull is a symbol of perseverance (thats why there is a tally on the forehead) because it took me ages to draw it how I liked, now every time I see that logo I dont forget, its an instant reminder.

And I have a website www.pirasy.com < but I really want to remake it, make the website cleaner and more user friendly.So now I just take orders via Twitter or my Facebook

I like all of them except for the Yo one, the Sticker one.... and the OG one is decent....


The logo is cool and simple. IMO i wouldve dont the logo smaller on the shirt, but thats just my preference.


The Happy and Unsuccessful one is on point.


I'd like to see more shit.
