Re: THE TRUE father TIME


My first thought was to do something with Time. A few hours later I had this guy. I felt father time would be more properly portrayed as a tortious... enjoy!

Here's and un-croped version. The colors are bit muted /altered since this image is compressed, but I gives you a better view of the overall design.


Images are broken so HERE is a link to the uncroped image.

I think this would look better on another shirt color (brown and navy come to mind?), but regardless, this is so delightful! There is a whimsical charm to the turtle and clocks - really fantastic work chumpmagic!

I didn't think I'd end up voting on any turtle shirts, but I think this will have to be an exception.

Neat idea and concept!
Reminds me of Master Oogway from Kung Fu Panda. YES.

Re: THE TRUE father TIME


I'm torn.

You see, I'm not a big fan of shirts with turtles, but I love shirts with clocks and beards.

So 2-1 means you get the vote. Congrats!

Re: THE TRUE father TIME


Wow! Thank you all for the wonderful comments and votes... and to think I almost didn't partake this week since I am currently juggling 4 different projects (when it rains, it pours...).

Also, I am not a mind reader, but I assume that the reason a few non-turtle people are voting for this is because I didn't just draw a tortoise for the sake of drawing a tortoise (though it was really fun to draw a tortoise with a beard). The tortoise has a purpose and has meaning and thought behind it; the most simple and obvious reason is that tortoises have one of the longest life spans. These crazy little critters can live well over 200 years.

I really like this, Chump! It is nicely balanced, you did a great job with all of the clock bits on the turtle. Your style is really recognizable and fresh. Great stuff!

Re: THE TRUE father TIME


Thank you, all!

And though I didn't intend for it too look like Master Oogway, this design might have unwittingly adapted features from him. Oogways is one my favorite characters for any 3d animation. I absolutely love that guy. Hopefully they are able to compensate for his awesomeness in the new movie!

I LOVE this. The turtle is soooo cute! And the clocks are awesome. I love your style, too. I kinda wish the thumbnail would show the turtle! But anyway, this is amazing. That's the cutest little turtle grin I've ever seen.

Thanks Midge and Jesse! Glad you two enjoy it

And yeah, I probably should of put more in the thumbnail. I always want to put a limited amount in the thumbnail... enough to get people to click it but still keep a lot hidden so there will be some surprise when they view the bigger image. Probably not the best tactic, but that is how I like it

As soon as I saw the Cuckoo clock in the thumbnail I knew I wanted it. Then I saw the beard and I was sold.

And here I was, saying I absolutely would not buy a turtle shirt!

I love all of the details, the expression & just pretty much everything over all. I would love to own it & probably get one for my sister. Great job!

Just had to add - I just noticed the scythe. I just keep finding more things to love.

Thanks. I am glad to hear that you really like it. I wanted to add the scythe, but I didn't know how at first due to a turtles limbs. I am glad I got it in there without it looking silly, but it is somewhat hidden.

Thanks again!

  • 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 think that I'll save the world as a fun afternoon activity.
