Re: The Raptors Are Coming


When birds re-evolve (or devolve, I guess) into velociraptors and other thunder lizards, there will be a revolution on our hands. Perhaps it will be bloody and we'll have to wage a war against the reptiles. Or perhaps it will be a revolution in transportation. A velociraptor would make a fine and fiercesome steed!

I believe in a world without velociraptors. Screw Velociraptors. cool shirt though, minus the velocirapot, but then that'd make the shirt lose it's meanings, so uh... yeah.

There's also an archaeopteryx. =P

So... I was worried about submitting this because it's on RED. I read a lot of bad things about red images artificating. Looks like I'm doing something right?

Thanks! I'm actually very proud of this shirt because I didn't use any references for either the raptor or the bird. I googled for an artist's rendition of the archaeopteryx, but mine is very heavily stylized to get the simple shapes. I hope it is still clearly an archaeopteryx. =)

I like the minimalist design of the shirt. When I draw, which is basically doodling, that is what I like to do. I think everyone needs a red shirt to brighten up their wardrobe. I liked your other shirt designs too :o)

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm not sure if my design detail hides the fact that it's on red. The majority of it is the darker red, which looks like cranberry. =P

I made another design that isn't in my signature. I hope to make a few more... I know I won't win, but the grunge/distress/fatigue technique (not sure about the official name) is rather fun. It makes the design look ten times more professional. ;) I also have a few more red fist jokes in me...

I'm not a paleo nerd, but velociraptors are cool (even if Randall Munroe fears them =P).

I'm a paleo nerd, damn dead animals followed me all the way to college...and it is because of Randall Munroe that I know how to calculate the best way to escape from a pending Velociraptor attack, more than I ever got outta any physics class...x3
