Re: Meatbull Madness


Resubbed because the first time I uploaded it I sent the wrong image file which resulted in ugly artifacting. My bad.

When the theme was announced, my first idea was to do a literal play on the term "spaghetti western." I later learned that Threadless had already printed a design with a similar idea. Too bad for me. However, I eventually came up with this design, with the focus being on the meatbulls. While still connecting with the original pun, this design also pertains to the bison hunts that nearly wiped out the species. I think the direction I took it in is quite different from the Threadless shirt.

One photo (taken by me) was used in this design. I just can't draw forks freehand with perspective.

Six colours on red.

I'm particularly proud of my use of colour for shading and highlights this week! Hi-res image (click for full size):



It's tomato sauce, by the way. Anyway, thanks for looking!


Oh, and those might be boca meatballs or something equally vegetarian.

And what of buffalo wings? Are those generally the tastiest and therefore quickest to consume?

I love that this has turned into a buffet of food comments! Too bad the banjos and meatbulls are keeping each other company way down here. Vote people!

@Patch - Saucy.

@AnnaJo - I would certainly prefer buffalo wings, but spaghetti and meatbulls have merit as well...

@dmkoo - Thanks dmk. I always appreciate your support.

@brydesign - Banjos have risen a bit since your comment. Thanks for your concern though.

Looks like this isn't my week. I had fun making this design though, and that's what counts, I think. Thanks to those who have voted and commented!

This is a good design, good thought, good execution - but sorry, disclaimers or no, it's just too gruesome for me.
