I wouldn't wear it, but I would keep it framed on my wall!

I'm a huge fan of your landscape designs over your character designs. You really have a way of bringing the scenes to life. Amazing piece as usual.

As someone who is not generally a fan, I have to say, I do like this one. It's not cutsey, it's not pandering for votes. It's nice, well thought out, and very pretty. More of this from you, please!

This is a strong effort from you, but personally, the lighter blue highlighting is what kills this one for me. Could just be my eye, but the lines of the anchor and chain look rougher/sketchier than the rest of the piece, making this element just feel a little out-of-place.

I don't think so. I think by not blending everything together he's accentuating the contrast between the two which helps to draw focus to the anchor a little more than have it not stand out, and the anchor chain is great as it shows the movement of an anchor, very fast not floating down leisurely. Really if it was any different I'd be disappointed. This is an amazing shirt and it would be great to wear. Hope it fogs soon!

This is such a beautiful shirt. I love the color scheme.

Re: Forbidden Treasure


This is really pretty, ramy! I love the background and your color use is always great.

I do think the lighting on the anchor looks a tad off, as the object doesnt seem to be planted within the scene. If the lighting is coming from the top and back, I think more of the anchor would be in shadow. Also, the focus on the anchor seems just a touch in your face and takes a bit of the mysterious feeling away from the scene. The dark, sunken background is so nice. Putting the anchor a bit further back into the scene, almost in silhouette, would be nice. The best, most interesting part of the image is the sunken ship and gold treasure, so that would be nice to focus more on.

Re: Forbidden Treasure


I would buy one if it didn't look like my junk was about to be crushed by an anchor. Pretty tho.

Now 100% chock full of little wind-up robots!

Maybe it's just me, but this shirt seems extremely suggestive... Just sayin', but the title doesn't help.

I'll get to it.
