Re: Muddled Whispers v.2


Version 2 (I took the jump and added color)
Here's the story again.

There is a story told by the villagers about the Wood Sprites.
The Wood sprites tend to the small insects and creatures of the forest. They spend their days whispering incoherent messages to the denizens of the forest floor. This keeps the creatures confused, lest they become intelligent and leave the forest and invade the village. Sometimes, when a person enters the forest the wood sprites, being mischievous will whisper into the person's ear, disorienting them. People have been known to wander the forest for days in a stupor, mumbling to themselves with their mind completely muddled.

Way better! You always use a wonderful color combination is your design.
I do believe you have surpassed Mr. Cho and Jimyo from Alabama as my favorite artist here.

I like the subtlety of the first design, and I like the colors.

color me wishy-washy. you've got my vote for either design. good luck! I'm sad my little monsters can't give me your monsters for mother's day!

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

Very nice work. I've been a fan of several of your entries! This is wonderful, the story makes it even more so.

Please win. :|
This has a great flow, composition, and colour scheme. Not to mention an interesting story behind it.

Wow Sokowa, that's beautiful! Might just have to frame it. I didn't know I was going to be "detaily inclined" until I saw them -- I'm really glad you posted those. Now I hope I get the chance to buy one!

don't sell yourself short. this design is original and beautifully drawn. please don't cater to the crowd. continue to make shirts that YOU would like to buy and that show your own unique ideas and style. Keep up the good work. I hope to see more artistic stuff from you in the future.

I don't think that's why it doesn't have the votes. Faeries aren't as universally loved as dragons and such. Also the individual elements look nice but the overall composition is hard to spot, which is critical for a shirt. If it doesn't win, at least you won't have to cut a check to Brian Froud.

Had to look him up, didn't recognize the name. Cool stuff. I'm not big into faeries, but i had the story first and wanted to come up with something.
"artsy" stuff doesn't tend to win here though. Happens sometimes, but not as often as cartoony humorous drawings, which is the nature of Shirt.Woot. Not good or bad, it just 'is'.

Thanks I look at your stuff and am amazed every week that you submit. You add an amazing amount of detail in just the right spots. They take time, but they are truly works of art.

Sokowa- I must have missed this one. I love it. Quirky fun and very creative. Not the whimsy spooky style that I usually associate with your designs. I really enjoyed your description! grate job. Just added my vote!
