Re: Foxfire



"Foxfire"

Edit: Didn't think I had to explain this because it's very obvious to me, but I'm kind of a lore geek so in case it's not common knowledge...

1) Foxfire (Kitsune-bi) - By rubbing their tails together, a kitsune can make lightning or fire. The kitsune can also, to a small range, breathe out fire. Kitsune can also make small 'fox lanterns', by producing small balls of fire to float around them, and guide their way. This fire can be used as a weapon, or as a toy.

2) Foxfire - the term for the bioluminescence created in the right conditions by a few species of fungi that decay wood.

My thoughts were kitsune playing with foxfire (the burny kind of fire) could be responsible for foxfire (the glowy mushroom kind), and that while they're playing with the burning foxfire they could singe the mushrooms and cause them to glow the way they do. That *is* a fireball coming from the dude on the left. It's just green. :P

A resub. The old one was more cutesy. I think the pure art version is much better.

Re: Aurora Vulcanis



This looks cool, and I totally appreciate an artsy piece in the Fog, but it doesn't remind me of fire that much... Maybe a more reddish tone?

My only point of contention is that when I showed my significant other, he insisted that the dragon passed firey flatulence because of the starry pattern under his cute little behind, despite the clear clue from the dragon's cute little nostril indicating smoke.

Could you clear this up for this cute little significant other?



rofl!! yeah, your better half has a point. however! if the dragon were to stand, you would see the earth would be cleanly unmarred below his bottom. so there, significant other! :p

I like the way you think. I'm the year of the dragon, and since I was little I would kind of wish to be a dragon. I may still wish for it now and again ;)

Re: The Fire Burns Within



It's neat and all, but it almost looks more like I'm peering out the Death Star observation deck than into a chest cavity. Still really cool though.

Re: Fire Extinguishers Are Bullies



good colors looking keen on slate gray & nice character work. sorry you're getting the gradient axe. sometimes they mean the placement element? not sure why!

Oh no, no star wars! That didn't even cross my mind. I just wanted a round window. lol It was originally a cathedral style window but I didn't like the way it looked on the shirt.

Re: Foxfire



YAAAAAY, Fable is here!! So happy to see you once again. :D This is a super cute entry. I don't know what it is about foxes. Everyone loves them...must be because they're orange :P.

Welcome back, lady!

Re: Dragon at rest



very peaceful for a dark tee design. the pipe glow is nicely reined in and not overdone. just the folds of the dragon's face are lit. the other side of his face is just implied. very keen following a halftone tut!

When you post a design, I always make myself comfortable and spend extra time looking over your designs cmdixon. Really like the way you create a tender moment out of a funny concept. The drawing and finish are sweet.

Re: Solar Eclipse



Woot, my last shirt was rejected because of gradients or lack there of in the comp. I believe I fixed it yet I am new to Photoshop and attempting to learn. If this is rejected for the same reason please give a little more info to help me. Thanks!

Re: The Djinn



The Djinn is said to be made of smokeless flame or "The Fire of Scorching Wind" Thought it fitting for the theme.

Re: The Foxes Fire



I like the concept... I just kinda wish they looked a little more like foxes. I'm getting kind of a raccoon-y vibe.

Re: Baby Dragons Equal Flame Throwers



Awesome concept! Very good execution! Two minor criticisms:

The fire feels a bit flat. I think some highlights would have added contrast and shape to the flames coming out of the dragons mouth.

The halftones being at 90 degrees are going to create moire patterns when printed. Tjost has on several occasions pointed out that an angle of 22.5 or 67.5 degrees should be used to get the best results.

They don't want you to use gradients. They want you to use halftones instead in order to give the appearance of a gradient.
