This is indeed asphalt, as someone mentioned

However, I hope the design fills more of the tshirt. The wings would look beautiful if given room to spread. I received Music Pirate in my random 3 shirt package today and I was disappointed in the size of the design, Ramyb. (not sure if that's your fault or woot's, however, so shame on whomever)
Wow, thanks a lot I believe in terms of filling up the shirt, it depends mostly on what size you're getting. Generally with smaller men's sizes, the design is really large, and as the shirt gets larger, the design appears smaller (they use the same screen size for all men's shirts, so the same size of design is just printed on a much larger shirt so it takes up less space). With a design like this, I'd expect the wings to extend from shoulder to shoulder on a men's small, and then fill about 3/4 of the front horizontally for larger sizes, etc. It's always hard to tell though, ultimately woot makes the decisions about how large a print will be (although I'd ask them to print as wide as possible for a design like this)

Thanks a lot
jmmbell1987 wrote:Anyway, good on the halftones. I still don't care for the design, but that's definitely a good decision.
I had originally included the halftone because the grim reaper's color was blending in with the shirt too much I felt, but I found a better solution to the problem and got rid of them.

think outside of the box
Thanks- I've been trying to get people to realize this for a while now, but most just wait until I post another cute animal so they can say I always do the same thing and ignore whatever is in between :P

All-told, this is much, much better.
I hadn't noticed it until you mentioned the issue with the scythe, and then got a bit obsessive cleaning everything else up in the design as well and I think it definitely came out much better as a result Thanks for pointing it out.

Goodness, this was unexpected- thanks, even if you don't vote, the consideration means a lot to me coming from you

I wanted to go for something different in terms of placement and wasn't sure if it would be well received- thanks though

The way it looks now it looks like there are 2 eyes and maybe a nose for a skull. I don't know if it was intended or not but I think making it a fuller image would fill more of the shirt and deal with the 'negative space' that others were complaining about.
I considered extending the skull downwards, but decided I liked the ambiguity more, and also liked the way the diagonal structure fit on the shirt. I'm not saying it was the best decision, but after debating, it's what I ultimately thought I liked the most (although it was a tough call)

It's good to hear things like this, and I'm glad to hear that you like the design.
Anyway, thanks everyone for the support, glad to hear that some people like how the design turned out
