I apologize in advance for making a Nintendo-related shirt, but the idea came to me in part, a friend of mine said something that sparked it further, and I absolutely had to do it. I looked around for similar shirts and am hoping there isn't one in some dark corner of the internet like this because I couldn't find a one.

The Game Boy was brought to North America in '89 (the year I was born), though I didn't get a chance to play with one until about 8 years later. ;D

Obviously, I took some artistic liberties with...er, most everything, actually, but I'm hoping it's all right. If not, I tried!

I love this concept but seeing it look far more like an actual ultrasound would make it a lot more wearable IMO.

In what way? (:

If: Photorealism: That's not really what I can do. ):

If: More scanlines and such: The tiny ones I did already became near invisible when converted to halftones and flattened. ):

If: More black: I didn't want the fact that it was a Gameboy to be unreadable. ):

The suggestion is appreciated, though.

M4:r10 == MArio
73:TR15 == TETRis
1:09:89 == It's a Date. Probably the artists birthday since GameBoy debuted in July.

Naw, it's just 1989 with a zero. I wasn't vain enough to include my birthday.

And yes, yes, I know, THE STOMACH, I'm sorry. It's mostly meant to be like, an ultrasound picture, which appears on a screen far, far away from one's stomach, as opposed to an X-ray shot or similar. =P I hadn't realized this would become such a thing.
