Re: T-Rex Sword Fight


With the descending arch of his blade, Dino-Atsuko dispatches with his enemy, Busu Baka. So begins the Age of Crux as the Dark Lord Atsuko bends the Kingdom of Saurus to his iron will.

BIG VERSION HERE.

Colors = dark shade of violet & light yellow on royal blue.

But...their arms...they're so long!

Fantastic design; I don't know how this isn't fogged.

I am blown away by your skills! Fantastic. I think it might do better if it only had either the top T-Rex or the bottom one by itself. I love them both, but not as much with the composition of them together. But then again, I never get any votes. That is just what I thought when I first saw it. But once again, I can't tell you how much I love your skills!

Re: T-Rex Sword Fight


Personally I think this would make a stronger design with just the upper t-rex. And a chainsaw instead of a sword... okay that might be a bit much, but it would be really cool.

Oooh I didn't realize that was your shirt! I don't buy many t-shirts at other places than Woot but I had to buy that one for my son who just started watching Dr. Who a couple months ago and is now totally hooked. Thank goodness for Netflix! And what a great design. I bet he'll be the only 5th grader in his school with a Tardis tee. hah

Awesome! I'm so glad your son liked it. Dr Who is such an incredible story that can be enjoyed on so many levels by so many people. The main hero constantly revolves faces, bringing in fresh new actors, we have our favorites... lady companions, aliens new and old, arch enemies. The expanse of the stage includes the entire universe and Beyond! I could go on forever about Dr Who..

I like the subtle use of orange in this one, so much that it's almost a one-color shirt. Great stuff.

Re: T-Rex Sword Fight


Great design, but am I missing the use of complimentary colours? Just asking, I skipped over the rules fairly quickly. Might need some orange...

That's some crazy good anatomy you've got going on here. I'm not big on t-rex's with swords, but I have to give props on the clean execution!

  • 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.
  • On a hippie trail, head full of zombie.

Made me think of that too. Specifically, T-Rex's in F-14s.

Nothing out there that can't be made more awesome by the inclusion of a T-Rex.

^^ What styles said above ^^.

It just a little misleading since there is a great use of the t-shirt color, the blue. However, the design is still abiding by the rules. Two colors are used and they are complementary.

I really like your design. However, the rays from the rising sun (the background reminds me of Japan) can be extended much further. As it is, the design looks boxed in. It bothers me, but you have my vote anyway. I hope I didn't offend you: good luck.
