Re: On the Prowl


Collab with sekiyoku, we each worked on half of the image and then connected our lines in the end :D Resubbed with a lot of changes (a good amount of cleanup, slightly modified placement, and new colors)- hope you guys like it, and will definitely be posting detailed shots later if anyone is interested

Re: On the Prowl


Wow... I was actually just finishing up a design with a tiger and the exact same color combo (a slightly more saturated blue, but not by much)... I'm not sure if I'll have time to get it where I want it for this derby though, so it may end up on DBH.

This is really well done--awesome work!

Spectacular. You two make a good team; I like this far more than any of your other entries.

Well it certainly took longer :P I'm sure that the woot public won't appreciate it so much though, unfortunately.

Wow, very impressive you guys! I'm kinda noob around here, and I'm interested in doing some shirts for the shirt.woot derbies. Do you guys have any suggestions on how your work flow goes. Do you 1st. Draw it on paper 2nd. Scan it to computer 3rd. Trace it in Illustrator? Or something like that. I'm always impressed at how good everyone is on here, and it's seems like you get them out so quickly.

Thanks so much I can't really speak for many other artists, but I sketch with a drawing tablet directly and then lineart over it (in this case stopping at the point of lineart) Hope that helps

Looks seamless to me. Hmm.... the tiger's right ear is less filled and the right eyebrow seems thicker. Clearly that means ramyb did the right side of the tiger (left to the viewer). Don't ask me why it's clearly so.

Edit: Or is the split between top and bottom? I think ramyb did the rear. ramyb and rear both start with the letter R - a very clear correlation.

I'm uncultured or something so I had to look those names up. Are you suggesting that they're the same person? Are you a fan of Kaufman/Clifton and thus giving them a compliment?

When you sketch do you sketch right into Illustrator using the brush tool or something? Then do you go over it with the pen tool to get the lines and everything how you like? If you don't want to give out your "secrets" that's fine, I'm just wondering how you put out such awesome designs! BTW I voted for this shirt!

Actually, I use a program called open canvas for my lineart (from portalgraphics.net) for both the sketch and the lineart (no illustrator involved here)- and thanks for the vote :D

Cool. I noticed that the program is in Japanese (or Chinese or Korean). Does it have support for English?

Theres a button on the site that switches everything to English for you (just look for the word English in the bottom right)

Re: On the Prowl


cool design, but why did you make the comp of the tigers butt? I almost didn't click on it, just looks like another crazy line drawing from the comp, but its clearly much better than that!

I don't know, but I think that's partially the point. The back looks like a tiger.

The front, however, looks like a tabby cat. I don't see a tiger in the face, really.

I think this shirt would be way closer to the fog if the comp was of the face.

Hey Artists! Post your favorite design to my wall from your Facebook page. If I use your image I always link back to you.

Absolutely love the idea. The face isn't big enough for a tiger and the front leg is too big. I have no room to criticize art since I can't draw sun, but there you go. Love the idea though, and really appreciate the effort.

I concur. I almost didn't click on it but was curious since it's listed as new. It's an outstanding comp and would be unfortunate if it didn't make it into the fog.. i thought it was a bottle or something... good luck!

How was it listed as 'new' nearly 20 hrs after it was posted? Do you simply mean it was listed in the hotness?

Ok, so given the images in your signatures, I'm going to guess that sekiyoku did the tiger's rear and ramyb did its front. Am I right? Do I win a prize?

Haha good job, I was going to reply to you earlier but wanted to see if anyone would just figure it out based on the clues we left

I don't know how the previous poster has such a great snake/cat but none of the designs available at the linked sites are nearly so excellent.

I'm happy that your artistic talent is greater than your psychic talent, (Although the low voter turnout might give credence to your foretelling). Congrats on the win. Again.

Still struggling over whether to buy or not. Not a big "animal shirt" fan, but the single line theme implemented so well keeps drawing me in. (Pun not intended, but that won't force me to erase that line (now that was intended).

I liked it enough for it to be my first shirt :^) I've been watching for a while but this is the one that made me click the 'I want One' button.
