Re: Threads



Thanks qetza and missmelis, I'm glad you like it.

Here's a bit more information on the significance of other colors in African weaving, if you're interested.

Black — maturation, intensified spiritual energy.
Grey — healing and cleansing rituals; associated with ash.
Maroon — the color of mother earth; associated with healing.
Pink — assoc. with the female essence of life; a mild, gentle aspect of red.
Purple — assoc. with feminine aspects of life; usually worn by women.
Silver — serenity, purity, joy; assoc. with the moon.

I love the effort you put into the shading. It really shows on a plain white t-shirt, and looks great. I hope it prints! +1

This is great. Not sure how people can say they don't like it because the moon isn't realistic enough, I mean you are allowed some creative license. Not to mention if realism is your thing, visible music notes should probably bother you more than the minor moon detail.

I'm a sucker for lions.

Oh and tigers too, but mostly lions, especially if they have crowns.

Thanks for all the comments and votes everyone. I had a hard time coming up with something I liked for this derby. This was sort of a last minute thing but I like how it turned out.

Oh no! You're right. I even used the same color T-Shirt! Now I feel like an ass. I don't want to remove it because of the time that I spent. However, if I am asked to remove it I will. Respect

This just raises another question. . . .

Bad ideas free; brilliant ideas by derangement.

Also the front view of the copyrighted cookie-monster is likely not parody or vague enough to pass by the rejectionator.

You're right I'm probably gonna get rejected and I see that other design is in the fog! I will buy one for sure if it wins.

Re: Intimidated



The design of this tshirt is awesome. I have to agree that I wish the lion itself was a little more yellow/less gray, but that didn't stop me from voting. I'm hoping people will notice this and vote it up quickly - if not.... Redbubble baby! I WANT this shirt!!!

It's adorable. I love the way you cartoon. I do wish the shadows were a bit more asymmetrical and unpredictable. Still, gmv.

Yeah, I can't argue with ya there. I see a lot that I would like to do different. Knowing it was already a late entry, I was mainly focused on finishing it. Honestly its chances are pretty slim so I can go back and fix some things later.

At the risk of sounding like an booooo, I thought the symmetry was pretty weird because I didn't see the face at first. Now I see it and it's awesome- gonna be a rough night for the monkey though.
