Wow. This one took a while. Really fun though. Looked through alot of old movie posters to get the feel of this right. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Hope you like it.

He's wearing a shiny metallic space suit. Skintight of course. You won't get very far in this universe if you don't wear futuristic skintight clothing.

My only nitpick is with the scribbly shadows and highlights on the male figure - they look great on the crab since he's distant, but the closer figure seems like it should be a little tighter in the rendering, like the lady in red (who I think is perfect). The colors and halftones are spot-on, though. definitely GMV.

Wow CM, you continue to really impress. I love retro Sci-fi stuff (I've been to the Science Fiction Hall of Fame and History Museum twice since I moved to the Seattle area). I think you got the tone of this one just right.

Thanks T! Really appreciate it.

Thanks Jasneko! I agonized over the colors. I wish I could have fit some green into it though. Stupid 6-color limit.

Yeah, I wish I was thinking more clearly last night, because I really want to call the tour the "Get Infested Tour - 2009"

Infestation of space crabs is more likely in adults than in children. Infection of a young child or teenager may indicate alien probing.

^ first thing I thought of when I heard the term "space crabs".

But the illustration is amazing!

I could see this becoming one of my favorite shirts. Way to knock it out of the park.

I really hope more people vote for this one. This is probably the only one that I would actually buy from this derby, becoming the second shirt I buy off this site.

Great job!

Agreed, I really love the colors and the retro sci-fi look.

Best shirt from CMDixion without a doubt!

I'll bet any quantum mechanic in the service would give the rest of his life to fool around with this....t-shirt.

I could do without the woman in the red dress, but I love this design. I'm a mad chick for old sci-fi flicks, and any band that uses this as their tee is a winner in my book.

Some of my friends and I have written a song about a galactic rock band of space animals, the drummer of which is a "magical space crab".

I would kill a man to own this shirt. No lie.
