Thermal currents. The rulers of the air. Inspired by the name of TGentry's shirt.
Glider pilots look to cloud formations as clues to the updrafts generated by the sun's heat on the ground, but birds have an innate sense of how to find and use them to stay airborne. Hawks can soar on hot thermals for hours, exerting almost no energy.
This design visualizes these invisible thermodynamics along with some of their passengers. Sequential geometric patterns represent the intensity of the zones.
Check out all the details in this BIG VERSION. This is five colors on blue.
Thanks for looking, please vote if you like this design! ^__^

Nice, SG. I'm a sucker for geometrical patterns like that.

I was excited to give this concept a try. It turned out quite different to how I planned it yesterday... I should probably stick to my character designs but it's fun to experiment every now and then.

I really love the concept behind this - if it doesn't make it here, you should rework it and try again...

A very effective way to depict the unseen Spiritgreen. The layering of colors and line work sit very well on the shirt too.
