Damn........you are rocking the derbies. It's the best one I've seen so far.
How about a 3peat?
Best of luck!

*YAWN* Another one of these? I am so bored of the greek god/mythology thing. I'm sure you'll do well though, beautiful lines.

Re: From the Ashes



I do enjoy the design, just wish it was placed in another spot on the shirt.

More towards the right side with it coming up across the chest.

Regardless good job and GMV :P

Would like it on a different color shirt a lot more. But good design.

It's nice, but blue on black means that the lineart doesn't really stand out that well.
How about orange on red or something brighter?

We tried a lot of different color combinations for this, but ultimately decided that something more subtle would be more effective. Maybe it would be nice if it were a bit flashier, but I think that this way it makes a more wearable shirt (at least for me).

Take a little of this

add a little of this

and come out with

It just seems that the bird meme is very overdone.

Otherwise, great artwork.

I'm not sure what makes this similar to the butterfly image, other than the fact that both have an upward flow. The main point of this image was the design elements of a bird that is composed of other birds, so that it creates an appealing composite image. I feel that dismissing the image just because it contains a bird is a bit unfair.

That's fine. Like I said, great artwork for a tired meme. I am sure it will do well, but just wanted to point out that this has been done in some way, shape or form for the past year and a half.

I am sure, if it gets printed, it will sell well.

Not seeing the "other birds" you mention. Just looks like fire to me (which is not a bad thing).

This and seki's butterfly shirt both remind me of The World Ends With You, and that makes me happy.

Eh, I must be blind. I see parts that I think are *supposed* to be birds, but they all look distorted and more like flames than avian creatures.

Yes, I have seen tons and tons of "fiery birds made up of other birds (a woodpecker is easy to see) all out of one line" shirts before.

As far as I'm concerned, the only thing to complain about with this design is that there are other shirts in this derby that look very similar, but I can't be bothered to figure out date submitted and it's a style, so I'm not saying style was ripped off or anything.

Re: From the Ashes


This is a great design. So simple and elegant. Leagues beyond the typical overly flashy and elaborate graphic t trash you see today. I'm very impressed.

To all the "anti-phoenix" comments: Phoenixes are awesome. And while the phoenix may be over-done, it's usually poorly done. This is a beautiful shirt. I want one!
