Drakxxx:Idea and drawing
CrescentDebris:Colors and edits

Last week we gave you some quick designs. This week we give you one all out, balls to the tablet design of meticulous hand drawn and colored detail. Both Drakxxx and I put a ton of time into this one for the Drak/CD fans. I don't plan on being around next weekend so I'll likely not take part in the next derby. Lastly, my completely biased opinion is that we've overdue for a print. Vote hard my friends. Thanks.

Awesome to see what you two produce on a complete re-imaging of this fairy tale. I realise Draxxx is known for his free inking style, but the lack of extraneous lines really brings this piece into focus. Crescent, you have matched this approach with stunning colours that carry into another realm. You have both really put your stamp on this one in a fresh way. +1

I love your guys' stuff and once again this is amazing...I especially love the clockwork dwarves and queens. However, Snow White herself looks funny to me. I can't pinpoint exactly why (possibly her choice of skin color makes her stand out against the muted clockwork) but it makes the design seem slightly off since she's the centerpiece. Still way better than I could ever do.

Was this design influenced by the movie mirrormask by any chance?

It might be because she's not depicted as a waifish, naive, 16 year old fallen princess, but instead as a rubinesque, mature, dominatrix.
Kudos for the design, gents. I will be sad when the proletariat voters overlook this for something....less.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Six. The lines are the shirt showing through.

Drakxxx drew it but I doubt it. I saw the movie once but it never crossed my mind. My influence was actually one of our previous entries "Equinox" in terms of quality and colors.

Thanks. That would be pretty badass.

Yeah, I was pretty bummed that one didn't make it. Maybe somewhere else will like it.

  • 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.
  • It was you who picked the pieces up when I was a broken soul and then glued me back together; returned to me what others stole.
