What do you think of my logo ?

I was thinking of putting this on a T-Shirt, I have used the 'Blood sweat & Gears' on T-Shirts before but this is a new picture.

Not selling anything here just wanted opinions

One is for black or dark shirts the other for white or light shirts and these would be quite small in center of chest

The rider looks exactly like "Beavis" from the Beavis and Butt-head moronic pair on TV!

I wouldn't wear anything that said Beavis to the world. Like, look here I'm a moron!!

Thanks for the feedback.... maybe needs more work.

Makes cycling look miserable to me, and I know better.

Too Flat. No sense of depth. Except, under the chin. That needs to be wider though. break up the rear wheel where the foot is to help this. Other places too.

Fine lines too fine. you'll probably have a hard time printing the finest lines. Rework the area between the front leg and wheel, helmet, under the chin, and teeth.

Font choice is too white-bread for what you are trying to say. +1 Looigi

The guy looks like he's crying in pain, not grimacing from the effort.

needs a tail-ectomy.

negative space in wheels is too large. Find a way to break it up

Head is pretty cool (with minor rework) but you need to work on the hands & feet to have a similar feel to it. Perhaps fillet corners like you did with the nose & chin.

Good luck. With some work, it'll get there.

Oh. and you're fork's bent and it's not a drive-side picture...

Now that's some proper feedback there.... thank you for all that, very helpful.

Only been doing it a few hours so will look at the points you mentioned... thanks again

It looks too sinister! Like cycling is a form of devil-worship, or something...

Conflicting levels of abstraction - the bike is simplified beautifully, but it clashes with the fiddly detail level of the eyes, teeth, hair. Can you do a grimace using a single short straight line, about the thickness of the wheel? The font is fine for me.

Nice idea - keep going!

Thank you all for the comments, it does need some more work, I think its the expression on the face (and his butt) that's the biggest problem at the moment. Like I said before I did not work long on it. It was just a daft idea I had for a shirt.... I will tinker with it some more and post it up here
