Re: Color to your world



I wanted to show a contrast between the bird (which is from out of the world) and the egg and its surroundings (which are of the world). Hope you like

edit: If you have something you want to say about the design, and you want to make sure I read it/respond, then send me a PM.

Re: Mission From God




The Bluebirds Brothers are back...they are on a mission from God. The most dangerous combination since Bird and Shot. They'll never get caught.

Been tryin' to get to you for a long time...

Re: Even frozen hearts can burn



A nice pocket design with a frozen heart in ice burning with a blue flame. Inspired by a chem class where we had methane ice that looked like a snowball but would burn this really large flame. And drip water. Weird.

Really great design and layout. I do however wish that the blue whale was a tad larger and the goldfish a tad smaller so the whale at least had the appearance of being at least a little bigger than the fish.

Re: Dance of the Deceased



Yet another design that if prints I will purchase but I sense another 4th or 5th place finish because well, that's what happens to the good shirts.

Re: Little Boy Blue



I like the warped perspective. I also like the way the whole design looks on the shirt. I'm not too keen on Mr. Moon's expression, but overall nice design.

Re: The Old Blue Whale



Nice. Is there a reason it looks more like a beluga than a blue?

*BLINK*
"Where did you go?"

"Come Back little metal doggy! I'll be your friend, I'd make a great companion!"...

"Sigh..."


Later...

"Hello There... What mazing flowing locks of gold you have you must use lots of conditioner... and you must work out at the gym a lot... Oh my, are you drunk?"

*BLINK*
"Where did you go?"

Later...

"Good morning little guy how are you?... you look like a little green doll... I could just hug you and squeeze you and call you george... My you have a lot of wrinkles... whats that? 900 years old? no way!"

*BLINK*
"Where did you go?"

Re: The Old Blue Whale



Well what else was I going to do?

Some extra explanation...
It's a take on Picasso's "The Old Guitarist" (Blue period, +1 blue) done with a blue whale instead of the old man (+2 blue) and he's playing the blues (+3 blue). So lots of blue here. I love blue.

Re: Color to your world



just to clarify, is this a Phoenix? It sort of looks like one, but they reportedly come from ashes, not eggs.

Re: Color to your world



I read your comment about wanting to distinguish between the egg and the bird, but I feel just looking at the design as a passerby would on the street, I would think that since there is so much dramatic highlighting on the bird, the egg looks rather bland. I would've liked to have seen some more attention paid to the egg as well, just so from a quick glance one would see continuity between the entire design.

I guess you and ramyb are really utilizing the glow effect lately! :p People do seem to like how it pops off dark shirts.

re: blue soup



This is my design for this week. As you guys may know Gargamel, counter character of smurfs’, lives Tom and Jerry life to make blue soup with it.
Calling back my childhood memories, I always felt sorry for those enemy characters, Tom, Sylvester, Gargamel, and what else, argh.. I don’t remember the counter of Bugs Bunny.
Anyway, here’s finally a day for Gargamel! I am very excited as I don’t feel pity for him anymore!

Re: Blue Moon



The glow effect is nice, and it helps set the mood of the piece nicely. I like the largeness of the moon as well. My only quirk with this picture is the woman. She looks rather stiff. Her hair is flowing alright and has some movement, but the woman herself looks like she's really rigid. People normally stand with some slack in their legs, and especially women - they usually favor standing more to one hip than the other. Arms are very rarely completely flat against one's side when they are relaxed and standing as well. I guess I feel for how relaxed and calming the entire piece is, she would've had a much more loose standing position.

Anyways nice blues.

What does this have to do with "Blue" besides being on a blue shirt?
