Re: MAGIK


I really love this design... I was shocked to see it so bright (and the girl a blond) because of the preview image.

It's awesome regardless... I'm really looking forward to buying it this weekend. (Vote!!!)

I too liked the concept image with the muted, dark color scheme... but the line work and characters are so awesome in this one that I think I was a sucker from the get-go! Pure awesomeness!!!

I like the coloring on this as well. It almost reminds me of a vintage carnival poster.

Thanks! It wasn't easy picking out the colors for this design. I really could have gone in any direction and its only 5 inks. I wanted to try something that would help the design appeal to a broad audience.

Thanks to everybody else so far for votes and comments!!!

Feel free to play with all sorts of color combinations and email them to me so I can set it as my sole wallpaper but on color rotations.

Re: MAGIK

I love the design, but you really should consider a resub with the darker colors of the draft. I think it would get more votes with this crowd.

This is a just a notice that the shirt color you're using doesn't quite match the color from the swatches provided in our templates. It may be just a subtle change, but please check to make sure you have the latest templates and use the colors provided.

Enchanting! I quite like the unexpected color choice. It does help distinguish it from others in the theme, but the line work still has that touch of morbidity. Besides, guys can rock the pink too, with such a nice design.

Amazing characters and colors as always Kasey. My Dragon Tattoo girl shirt is real lonely. Heres hoping we see some magic at the end of this contest, and this wicked illustration ends up on a shirt.

Sexy and stylish and all sorts of super. Not to mention, one of the fog's few saving graces right now.

Re: MAGIK


This is really cool, reminds me of a some pulpy sci-fi and/or fashion illustraions. Got my vote.

I think the girl's face looks a little large, maybe if you shrink her eye and move it closer to the nose, just slightly. Also her back leg looks thicker than the one in the foreground, and it's as long as it too despite the fact that it's receding.

Original and on topic. Kasey is one of the best illustrators on this site and never gets the attention he deserves. Give this guy a print!

I think I have seen this majorette before, the boots are a dead give away. The top hat is cinched FAR too tight and the birds and skull...well... Not original.

There's something off about her right hand, I think the thing underneath is her thumb? The shape is a bit weird. But the movement and pose in this is so dynamic and lovely! Color choice is really interesting too!

I like the styling and coloring and would LOVE this if not for some issues. I don't think the face is too big, but I definitely noticed the back leg right away and just can't figure it out nor really like the design because of it.

I don't get why it's not flesh colored to begin with, but it definitely is thicker than the other leg and the start of the leg. It's just too much for me to overlook. Other than that and what Dooomcat said about her right hand, it's amazing. I just can't get over those two things and don't really see the need for them to be like that.

Not trying to be a sourpuss, just trying to be constructive since everyone else is in love with this and it's so close to being amazing to me.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I usually take suggestions like these and keep them in mind for future reworks outside of comments from those like be10der2me, I find it all very constructive, thanks!

Renegadetim, I wondered about her back leg at first as well, then I assumed she was stepping out of the smoke in a sort of "Ta-dah!" moment, and it made more sense for that leg to be obscured.

Really wish I could see this shirt print.

If it were on a tshirt of another color I would totally vote for and buy this.

This does remind me of Gwen Stefani. (For the record, I picked up Kasey's Devo shirt.)
