First time attempting a challenge; I think it will be fun. Anyone that drinks as much soda as I do can't envision missing this challenge.
.. XD I have to think of a name for this darned soda.

Final work (sort of... made a small edit after uploading but not that much) at the end.

"This is definitely a cheap generic soda, the varnish used on the cans probably tastes more like cherries than the actual soda inside. But hey; what do you expect for $1.50 a 12-pack?"

barcode can fill some empty space and give authenticity...  otherwise, its a pretty witty piece. My husband got a good laugh out of it.

This means, you have to create you're own Font.


Font is:

ABCDEFG
ABCDEFG
ABCDEFG
ABCDEFG


You have to make your own. Draw your own letters. Does this help?

Actually, by existing fonts, it means you shouldn't use, say, the distinctive coca-cola font, as if it were a parody.  Pixelling your own font goes without saying, of course.

Ok so this is the first challenge I'm trying.
This WIP label is intended for a tall bottle of a lemon drink.

Does anyone have any opinions?

actually no not "oasis juice" Juice is part of the name, as in Juicy Juice. Thanks for informing me of that though. I don't think that should be an issue though, because the name is just one I thought of and it doesn't match any current marketed product.

Sorry by twice Post
I want to tell you that I was forced to remove the picture of PJ, because the idea of "fizz" was used ¬ ¬ (there are people who do not read the forum)
Because of this, I had to make another picture.
Want CRITICAL TO RESPECT.
THANKS
New Picture

Taquito: it was not sent back because of the word "fizz" - there's nothing wrong with that word at all. It was sent back because you need to spend more time on your pieces before submitting them... same as this current one.

EDIT 8 : In my previous image, not shelved by what I said pixelblink, but that another had already used that word .. and I do not want to "copy" to anybody.
Because of this I rush to do another label, but also fails, is still trying to now put this in the forum before Post, so you tell me who is missing, and things relating to the .. so I can improve 100% and then post

Thanks guys. Crits?

@Jaeden, i imagine that's okay. If you reference it really heavily though i'd suggest linking to the font in the submissions' description to avoid confusion. :)

I liked the green font more for 'crunchy soda' the aa of the orange  font (the red) looks funky on my moniter and out of place. however, if you were trying to cut down on your color count i can see why you did that. 
 
it looked like a soda label befor, now it reminds me of poprocks :-D

Thanks! I'm having problems with choosing the right colours for the right stuff on this pic, as you can notice from the WIP anim. I'll stick with green for the mo then. Every now and then i suddenly feel like an older palette is better and so change it then change it back and blah blah blah.

@Blick, f**king love that.

Ive done that about 10-15 times myself already. Im ALMOST done though if I can find happiness with my antialiasing.
 
Id share mine but.. I think it would kill the comedic impact.
 
from the moment i saw 'label' something somewhat gross came to mind. I hope ya'll end up liking it lol

Based on the 'new' clip from Tyga ft. Travis McCoy - Coconut Juice
I don't know if that is against the rules, but I'll finish it anyway.
I kinda need help on the background, it's way too dull.

Cool man. I love the beach, so you won my heart with this one. I suggest some very faint outlines of palm trees maybe.  or super faint mountains, using a very light shade of blue, only slightly darker than the blue you have here.

What you should do is adjust the color of the sky and sand. They are WAY to bright. It is important that you make the actual coconut and writing stand out. They need to be the center of attention. So dim down the sand and sky, try to add a couple silhouettes of some palm trees or something.

Cool job so far
