The color contrast between the blue and gold really makes this piece.

While I really appreciate all the details you put into this, I feel like the overall piece looks sort of flat. I don't personally care for it, but I'm also not really familiar with this style of art. Was making it look.....sort of like cut outs of textures....intentional?

I really like this shirt, I voted for it last time and was heartbroken it didn't print. Voted again and keeping my fingers crossed. I love the blue&gold and love the theme and detail.

Hey, now, what's this about the bags? Is it a shirt or bag? Now, if it's a bag, I'd like to see how it looks... woot? wootbot?

Bags are next week. This week, shirts.



DF, black's pretty much invisible on navy. You've used rather large blocks of it here, so maybe it'll show, but I wonder if you couldn't have put the extra colour to better use (assuming you're at 6 already - it's kind of hard to tell). If this prints, I'll be looking forward to seeing photos. Maybe black will turn out not to be entirely useless on navy.

Re: I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.


I was really disappointed when this shirt didn't get printed the first time. Here's hoping it happens this time.

My only complaint is that I think it would be better placed on the bottom right as opposed to the top right as it is right now. The best placement, IMO, would be on the left side wrapping around, but obviously that can't happen.

Regardless, I'm buying this if it prints! Helloooo, black box.

Heh. you'd be surprised how much sex people who like this stuff have. Same goes for the rejected hero piece from last week.

If you're not getting any, it probably doesn't have anything to do with what's printed on your $10 tee shirt.

Exactly what t shirt design would make someone want to jump your bones?

Personally, it's not what you wear, but the attitude, morals, values and all that attract.

And here I thought it was what you *don't* wear, and how you look without it, that attract. (Or maybe I'm just shallow?)

At any rate, I'm not likely to leap into bed with anyone who insists on keeping his t-shirt on, no matter how well or poorly designed it may be.

I think whether or not the black shows on the navy is largely irrelevant. It will look somewhat different than displayed, but should maintain roughly the same look.

Re: I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.


First of all, I love this design and I cannot wait to buy it. But I'm curious: This phrase, "I am become death, the destroyer of worlds," was made famous by Robert Oppenheimer, the Father of the Atomic Bomb. He said it following the first successful explosion of the bomb. The phrase is an interpretation of a line from an ancient Hindu text, where it was said by the God Vishnu. IS the design meant to be an interpretation of Vishnu? Or maybe an abstract rendering of Oppenheimer (very abstract)? The phrase was also quoted in the movie Hunt for Red October. Is that Sean Connery in the design? Regardless of the intent, I love the design. GMV.

Since it first appeared, I liked this drawing but not as a shirt, and I just realized why: Three Wolf Moon. Although I don't think this design itself is tacky, it really reminds me of those very tacky semi-tie-dyed big-animal-design t-shirts.

Anyway, sorry it sounds like I'm hating on the design, I really would like it a lot on anything but a t-shirt. Good luck to all those who want this, maybe I'll get lucky and they'll print Rain Dancer too.

if they're not feathers, then what are they?

i deff think the design is awesome, colors are eye-catching and cool. but i gotta ask, i don't understand the title of this shirt, and what it has to do with the design. i mean, is this like the ultimate warrior of doom? still, awesome design though. very detailed.

So wait a minute. You are hating on this but like Rain Dancer? They are similar ideas!

Scythes, thus a personification of death using well-known grim reaper imagery. It takes a closer look to notice, and is one of the things I really like about this design.

Xanthis13 wrote:So wait a minute. You are hating on this but like Rain Dancer? They are similar ideas!


Sortof... I was trying to not really hate on this because I like a lot about it, just not as a shirt. I think maybe it's the color choices, maybe just a personal issue of being reminded of those other types of shirts. I like the idea and the line work plenty. And yeah, Rain Dancer is the third shirt I would buy in this derby, after Air and Steamworks Operatica.

Though this quote is well known because of Oppenheimer's response to the detonation of the atomic bomb, it was originally from the Eleventh Chapter of the Bhagavad-gita (Hindu scripture) in which Krishna displays his "Universal form." I think this is what the art is trying to portray. You can read more here.

DF is capable of great work. I see it so rarely from him, however, that I can no longer even try to respect him when it does come out.

His shirt in the fog this week was a last-minute hail-mary when he realized people were dead set on getting his Pandas rejected in the quote derby. He could have worked on the artistic idea first, but he went for an overdone one, with no discernible difference from a million other shirts except the style, which was used in all his prior wins. All of which, like that one, illustrated something 100% as it was, without added creativity. By submitting an artistic piece, he would either prove people liked his work both ways and get a print (or else get pity votes because his pander idea was axed), or he would lose, and could say "SEE!!! I can't win with these ideas! I am such a victim, and I need money"

It is true I've liked his work in the past. But he is long past the point where I'd ever consider buying anything of his, like it or not. I think his design and art ethics are far too low to support.

Design and art ethics? What are you talking about? You make designs on a COMMERCIAL website to SELL THEM. You don't need to maintain artistic integrity when you're trying to SELL THEM FOR MONEY. Seesh.

Plus, I really like this shirt. I just wish it was on black instead of blue. I think the gold and black combo would be a much better representation of a bringer of death. But even still, if this wins I'll probably buy it.

If you cannot both make money AND have ethics, then you are not worthy of my respect. They should not be mutually exclusive.

All art should be bound by ethics. There is not some moral void that comes up when money is involved.
