Re: Egyptian Amulet


This design is inspired in ancient egyptian amulets, where the scarab was considered a symbol of luck. Six colors on asphalt t-shirt.

Beautiful, Chunk, and I would definitley wear this. But, my monitor isn't helping me - are you using gradients, or just really good halftones?

Glad that you liked it. I´m using halftones, and have to thank the guys at Media Militia, who just released a great set of halftones that I edited to get that effect. It was the first time I used halftones in a t-shirt design, but was quite pleased with the result.

Def looks awesome on the shirt. Bit too tribal turtle tat for me to wear though.

While doing some research for this, I looked at luck symbols fom different cultures, african, native american... and so the tribal look started to make sense with the kind of graphical aspect I was aiming for, with this design. I´m not a huge fun of wearing tribal designs myself, but I really like the graphical aspect of it in terms of composition and shapes.

Really cool and maybe I'd wear it except that I remembered I hate bugs. Ick.

On the other hand at least it's not another clover or rainbow... *sigh*

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • I've got my heart set on anywhere but here.

Thanks for the award. You always manage to make someone feel good about being a "loser".
