Since I dig anything red on black, I had to vote for this...

I like the art, but the placement doesn't seem right...of course, I can't figure out where it should go...

There's something very intriguing about the white cracked line down the middle of the ground and the figure. It reminds me of calling a mad person "cracked."
Quite nice!

Looks rather phallic to me.

First thing I thought of too... A big red engorged... The colors scheme is really cool though.

I -didn't- see that, but now I can't un-see.


But really though, it looks pretty good. I like the off-kilter placement and the subtle-yet-striking white streak makes it very interesting to look at. It balances out the dark tones -just- enough, while still adding to the feeling of desparity achieved by the rest.

My first thought was 'Whoa!'. My second was that the placement is wonky. My third was that the central figure looks heart-like enough to warrant a place right over the heart. So, I'm right back to 'Whoa!' :D

I like this, but it is too small on the shirt. I think that is why some people have mentioned the placement seems wonky. If it was scaled up by 25-50% it would get my vote.

Re: The Madness of it All


The composition, colours, placement and style of this shirt all really appeal to me. However, I don't really 'get' what's going on in the lower part of the design, below the character's feet, and that sort of bothers me - any explanation as to what that's meant to convey?

No, not sarcasm, the reaper is there, on the shirt. You have to kindof 'upside-down' your brain, or literally turn up-side down to see it. The reaper is the shadow/antithesis of the angel that's the main focus.

Haunting design, and a great representation of insanity. I'm curious, are the right-angled fractures intended to represent a cross? Regardless, nice work. GL.
