This is by far the best four horsemen design by a very large margin.

It also helps that there are actually four horsemen. Love that fire. Nice work.

Alrighty - this is awesome. The idea is just so cool. Too many cute horsemen are galloping around these days (my wife has the my little pony ones) - but there is really a natural question of what these guys (and the rest of the hords of destructive forces) are doing until the seals are broken. And the answer, of course, is roasting marshmallows.

Re: The Wait


P.S. - This is the only one I am voting for so far - all others are just really mundane and some so focussed on the derby topic that they make no sense without the derby description. Sometimes I think you need to print it out and safety-pin it to your shirt, then people will read it, and then look at your shirt, and then laugh.

Thank-you BumperK! I believe they are saving the graham crackers and chocolate for that special last day

Re: The Wait

Yes, definitely best horseman shirt, hands down. Two quick criticisms: it's almost too busy--spacing them out a little more might have made it feel more balanced (to me); the marshmallow is a little too far down the arrow shaft--and you'd probably only shove it onto the barb, it'd never stay put on the shaft after being pushed over the barb (typing that felt unnecessarily dirty).

That said, those are my preference/neuroses coming into play. GMV anyway. I hope this replaces Ramy's or Walz's fogged fourth horseman designs. This fits the theme better and is, in general, a better twist on the (relatively tired) concept (imo.)

I like this a lot...reminds me of the sketches in the old Dungeons & Dragons books I used to flip through when I was a kid.

I seriously thought this was a D&D Gathering which is why I'm voting for it cause it doesn't get any dorkier. "Magic Missle!"

Re: The Wait


This looks good enough to have as an art print, let alone a Tshirt. You're amazingly talented, keep up the great work! +1

  • 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.
  • The sweet sweet songs that cloud your eyes - nostalgia supplies.

Re: The Wait


As the votes are showing, this design is great. The only thing that might have made it better would have been seeing silhouettes of the horses in the shadows/background/smoke. Well-played!
