A tenacious, one-lined fire flower sprouting from rock. It's pretty feisty, for a weird-looking plant!

This is beautiful, I keep going back to it. xD I think this is the only shirt design that I would wear that I've seen. (I also like the colors better than your blue on brown design.) This theme looks like it was made for you. :D

Ahaha, I'm glad that I could create a wearable design, and that you like the colors on this one. It's a much more intense color scheme, that's for certain. I still can't decide which combination I like better, but I suppose I'll just leave it up to the voters to decide for me. I did get very lucky with this theme; it was a good one to come back to. Anyway, since I was gone for your appearance, welcome to woot! (Super belated~)

And heartluce, thank you again for yet another kind comment, each one means a great deal to me.

Hey, what happened to staying up late? You disappeared on me.

Yours lines are crazy, Ms. Hapa. Seems like you've had practice - did they make you do this stuff at RISD?

Oh my goodness, fog. Thank you so much for all the votes and kind comments, everyone. I was shocked to get such a response on my second design (which was really meant to be more of a self-indulgent design than anything)! But honestly, I'm very glad you guys like it; thanks again for all your support.

Congrats on the fog! Well deserved. I need to practice more with varying line widths so I can do stuff like this too! GMV Mito.

This is pretty bad ass. Do they correct "ass"? What about Rollerball (2002)? Dark Helmet? koi? I apologize, I know this comment makes no sense by now.

Great design.

Re: Ablaze


Very nice design. This would go lovely with your other shirt I have "Against the Sky". Believe it or not, but I am wearing it right now. haha!

Re: Ablaze


Congrats Mito on the fog! If this places, I will hopefully have another great shirt of yours (I love Against the Sky and the one from TeeFury which is gorgeous - what was the name? Something about Daydream?). I'm so glad you came out of "retirement". Just kidding, hope school is going well. Now you make me wish I'd gone to RISD instead of Brown ;-). It's an amazing school.
Love this melty fiery flower. I would never know this was for a derby challenge:it just looks hella cool.

Absolutely beautiful design. I like this better than the bird that's also in the fog. It's fresh, good composition, and it's not some tired meme. Tired of seeing so much dragon/mythic/sword type stuff, this is nice. LOVE the color combo even though i'm not usually a fan of black. Like this GMV

Re: Ablaze


I guess its nice becuase of the complexity of it, but honestly I do not think it should rank in the top 4....nice, but it seems that similar "ideas" have been done over and over.

Ahaha, I understand what you're saying. "Nice", but not very interesting or original, correct? I often have similar thoughts, especially concerning my own work. As I mentioned earlier, this design was a self-indulgence. As of late I've been drawing whatever my hands want to, which tends to be undirected, idea-less subjects. It's something I have to shift away from. At this point, I can't present this design as anything more than what it appears to be. The fact that people seem to find it aesthetically pleasing is something that I appreciate greatly (though lately it seems that "beautiful" and "cute" have been dominating the derby, which I have mixed feelings about), but I also respect your take on it. I'll try harder to produce something more thought-provoking next time.

Still, I'd like to thank everyone for their wonderful comments/votes this week. That people still like something of mine despite my lack of cleverness...well, thank you all so much!

"Fire flower" from rock---look up the LEHUA flower from Hawai'i. It is a red flower which blooms on the 'ohia tree out of volcanic rock. These trees look so impressive when they grow out of that stark black lava landscape near Kilauea Volcano on Big Island. That's what your design reminds me of. There is also a myth:
