Re: MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFER STUDENT


Its tough being the new kid. Especially when its in whole different universe and timeline.

This was inspired with the thought "what would be an oddball to a trekkie or sci fi geek?"

So I imagined they probably look down on LARPer's and fantasy nerds. Then I imagined Galdalf being transferred to a new school and runs into the hall monitor in the hall with his fellow trek enthusiasts, who asks him,
"Hey new kid! Do you have your hall pass?"

Fast Forward to adult Gandalf facing a Balrog...
Puts it all into a new context. He was wanting to see the Balrog's hall pass.

5 colors on brown.
I hope you dig it. Let me know in the comments below and open to ctitique as well!
Thanks for the support!

Re: MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFER STUDENT


i am a trek nerd and a fantasy nerd, although i draw the line at actual larping, so im torn on which side i should take. maybe you should do another one and reverse the roles and then i can have both! ^_^

Re: MIDDLE SCHOOL TRANSFER STUDENT


Thanks for the comments guys and gals! I appreciate the support. Here's a couple links:
Here's a 16x20 version on brown as seen above.

Her's a link to alternate on asphalt.

If enough people prefer it on asphalt, I'll sub a v2 on asphalt for votes.

Please if you don't like the design, let me know. I would love any and all feedback.

I want it the way it is. Blue on brown is freaking sick! If it's not selected and you make this after Woot's holding period let me know. Im a definite buy.

Good luck brother,
Stinko-Man

I absolutely love your drawing style. The characters have so much personality, and the color palette is fantastic!

The red shirt looks under threat from toppling books. He'll be gone by the end of the semester for sure. Your drawing style sits really well on this one as does the muted color scheme midgerock.

glad someone mentioned the red shirt. I thought it wasn't obvious enough apart from the fact that the other trekkies are using him to carry all their books. Thanks for the comment and support.

  • 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'm very shallow and empty and I have no ideas and nothing interesting to say.
