Re: Inspired by Snail Shell -- TMBG

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS
"Snail Shell"
Listen on YouTube

Sir hand
Or is it ma'am
I fell out of my right place again
And you
Considered me
And now I'm where a snail has to be

I want to thank you for putting me back in my snail shell
I want to thank you for putting me back in my snail shell

Was it something you would do for anybody?
Was it what you'd only do for me?
I need to know because you see
I want to thank you for putting me back in my snail shell

Friend
Look what you gave
And how can you ever be repaid?
How may I give you a hand
From the position at your feet where I stand?

So let me thank you for putting me back in my snail shell
I'd like to thank you for putting me back in my snail shell

Was it something you would do for anybody?
Was it what you'd only do for me?
I need to know because you see
I want to thank you for putting me back in my snail shell

Snail Shell
Thank you
Snail Shell
Thank you

Ah
Ah
Ah

Was it something you would do for anybody?
Was it what you'd only do for me?
Or was it something where you acted when you saw the need
And knew that there would be a way the act could be repaid
And so it may, but for today
I want to thank you for putting me back in my snail shell

___
Someone needed to do this song!
To be printed as outrageously large as wootably possible.

Hey, that looks really nice! gmv.

I'm a Christmas Unicorn! In a uniform made of gold, with a billy-goat beard, and a sorcerer's shield, and mistletoe on my nose!

I was scrolling through the new entries, not expecting much, when this shirt hit me like a ton of bricks. I would totally, totally buy this shirt... and I'm not even into snails.

Thanks schrob, artulo. Nekko, sorry about the bricks – best wishes for a speedy recovery. Heartluce, narkus, monkeyboy, I’m glad you approve! In 60 days, maybe I can put him on a coffee cup or something.

Thanks superspryte! I’m not sure what to say about technique other than I wouldn’t have guessed the snail would turn out like it did. I’m new at this – if you’ve been watching shirt.woot, you’ve seen my entire portfolio. I tried a couple shirts by mouse/corel draw last year, did a couple by pen/ink/scanner/mouse a few weeks ago, and got my first tablet a little over two weeks ago. The tablet makes a lot of things easier, but there’s definitely a learning curve. Hopefully you’ll continue to see improvement. This shirt was inspired by the rabbit (character design) and the lobster (character and texture). I had a bunny foofoo as one of many sketches Thursday night, but he was mean looking, and more anatomically correct than the foofoo in the fog – completely uninspiring. The maniacal bunny in the fog is far better than I would have done a week ago, but I’m learning! I like the texture of the snail, and will use that technique again if it seems right, but I’m definitely in an experimental mode right now.

The shell on this one is amazing... the angles and feel are awesome. Feels like something out of wonderland.
