Here is my collaborative effort with the talented Miss Zenne.
As you may know Zenne did the colors on this design, and I did the line art.

The idea was inspired by the musical number in The Last Unicorn about the sea,
and I created the initial line art with the the film in mind.

Thanks as always for your support and votes!

This was inspired by tLU? Fantastic. This turned out so beautifully despite not having any purple. Beautiful work you two. My favourite design in this derby, for sure.

Wow, this is gorgeous.

Absolutely fantastic work, Drakxxx and Zenne. I'm sure there is plenty of time for this to get to the fog. It's truly worthy, and I'll be saving $10 for it.

Best collab. Drakxxx's ability to compose a great scene with Zenne's fantastic coloring = awesome. Good call you two.

Re: Sea of Dreams


Drakxxx, Zenne, this is wonderful. I think the only thing I would have suggested would have been to leave off the arm, but I love the whole piece. You can really see Zenne's influence in the project and yet it maintains Drakxxx's style. I'm very in favor of the strong, crisp lines (even though I'm obviously a fan of Drakxxx's raw linework), but in this piece, the sketchiness could have easily distracted you from all the added detail. It came out superb. And I am SOOOO glad you two got the mirror area spot on!

Awesome... simply awesome.

It seems that the sails are pointing the wrong way, that is, if I'm correcting assuming that it is the stern of the ship I'm seeing. Other than that, neeto.

Wow, impressive! I was hoping to see a little more of Zenne's halftone magic, but oh well :/

Is it just me or are the yellowish/greenish fish a little too dominant color-wise? Unless that is intentional?

Great design nevertheless, GMV.

Why? And isn't ahuhu'ing out loud redundant? :D

I really love how this came out. It is beautiful! The only thing I would change is to take out the arm. It seems out of place with the flow of everything else. Other than that, it is lovely! Great job!

Best in the Derby.

I think it was just too late, though

I guess the most we can hope for is an HM and printed at a later date

Great job, again, Drakxxx and Zenne !!

You need to sing the meow mix song through a couple of times.
That will cure you!

the last unicorn is probably the feyest movie I've ever seen. You're really missing nothing.

And the songs... god, it's everything I dislike about hippie folk, mixed with most of what I hate about fantasy lit.

Lol. For some reason it's the song thats come to my mind constantly over the years whenever something aquatic is involved.

I've always found The Last Unicorn to be a quality source of fantasy inspiration. I think it's got the right amount of whimsy and seriousness all at the same time.

Thanks everyone for your support on this one, and a big thanks again to Zenne for the amazing color. I really am fond of this design.

This shirt has a pattern that flows, but doesn't crash with too much. I like it very much good job.
