Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica

Since this is really my first shot at graphic design, I didn't think I'd even be able to come up with an idea of what to design, much less design it. But so far things aren't going too bad and I'm happy with where the design is headed. 

The band I'm designing a poster for is called 'Gang of Youths', they're an up-and-coming rock band out of Sydney with kind of a U2 meets Fleet Foxes sound. They don't take themselves very seriously (here's their facebook page 

https://www.facebook.com/GangOfYouths) but they totally should because they're amazing and I can absolutely see them making it all the way. 

But anyway, the only thing I had to go off of was this shirt I saw someone wearing on their facebook page:

So they like bears, I guess I'm gonna draw some bears. 

Inspiration bears: 

This one's adorable

I think this one's taking a poo

I don't even think this one's a real bear (is he wearing braces??)

So after sketching some stuff I came up with this (it got ripped a little): 

I know, I know. I'm not the best at drawing, but it's looks awesome in my head, plus I'm a web designer by trade so cut me some slack. 

I wanted to give it a rock-ish look (whatever that means), but also make it kinda funny and informal. I think the main way I'm gonna do that is to show at much emotion as possible in the bears' face, and maybe have them doing something offbeat like smoking or drinking. I ran with the initial sketch, so here's where that went:
