Re: Underworld Blossom


Persephone is the Greek goddess of spring who was captured by Hades and made to become his queen. Here the first light of spring hits her, and even the underworld begins to bloom.

6 colors on black. Design is off center... because it looks way better that way :P

Here are the details a little bigger:

Re: Underworld Blossom


This is one of my absolute top few favorite shirts I've ever ever ever seen! I absolutely LOVE the design!!!! Perfect color shirt to print this on too. My only complaint is that I don't wear pink. Hate the color. My own personal taste but I almost wish you'd submit it in a different color as well just so I can attempt to buy that one instead XD I LOOOOOOOOOVE THIS DESIGN!!!!!!!! IT'S SIMPLY AMAZING!!!!

Glad you like it oodles! If it makes you feel any better it is straight up magenta >.> <.< because that makes a big difference, right? I actually tried all the other colors for the outline, and the green just made the white figures get lost too easily... If enough people poke me for change I'll shuffle some colors around though.

Not that I don't like pink...>,> but I'm leaning more towards a cloudy light purplish color. Ya'know?
You dun have to change it though. >.< It's just a suggestion. Don't listen to me if it's not what you want. .o.

Re: Underworld Blossom


Great design, I really hope this gets printed because I would love to have this as a shirt. The magenta complements the teal lights and skull eyes perfectly and plays well with her character, I think its a good color choice. I'm a dude and I would defiantly wear this. Again great choice for the theme, and the execution is perfect. Hope you get printed, you have my vote.

You should have said "The magenta is nice, but a cloudy light purple would complement the design better." ^-^

I'm not one for pink either, but it works very well at making the girl pop so easily as well as the flower pedals. I would gladly wear this shirt. Besides, the primary color is not pink, not sure what the big deal is of having some elements of a pinkish color in a shirt.
I love the concept a lot and I pray for it to make it. It's so wonderful!!! <3

For the record, I'm not a pink kind of girl. Generally, my choices tend much more toward purple for me.

However, I think you should leave this alone. For two reasons, purple is much coder to the color of Hades and I prefer that you represent Persephone as a unique identity. The pink is reminiscent of cherry blossom trees which drop lots of petals and in places herald the arrival of spring (although cherry blossoms come in several colors, pink is most closely associated with them.

Plus, it's beautiful the way it is!

Re: Underworld Blossom


This is very cool, and i very much envy your technique! The eerie background really pulls the design together. I think an elongated design like this would look great centered if they just let us print designs on the back of t-shirts, and then you would have just some simple element of the design on the front upper-left. Overall, well done!

Re: Underworld Blossom


Thanks for all the comments everyone!

As for the great color debate... I'm going to have to leave it as is now that it is in fog territory. Putting up another version always runs the risk of splitting the votes... I did try out the purple as tangolite suggested, and while I like it as an outline, I also like keeping the petals magenta which messed with my color count. Anyway! If I ever end up coming back to this design I'll toy with the colors.

Yeah, it makes sense to keep it pink. As Bethany said, pink is the most distinct color for cherry blossoms. I hope this design will print! If it doesn't please contact me at maddy7889@gmail.com if you print it elsewhere!

I have no idea why this went here. This is talking about the amazing "spring" shirt with Persephone on it.

Re: Underworld Blossom


This is so beautiful. Really hoping it prints!

I'm also glad that you're sticking with the pink. It brings some warmth to the design that I think would be lost with the purple. Bit late in the game to be bringing that up, but that's my two cents at any rate. Best of luck!!

Re: Underworld Blossom


This is a really cool design. The only thing that is a little off to me is the harshness of the white of the girl. I would have liked maybe light pink or a light blue, but it's a really solid piece and that's just more my preference. Maybe if she was glowing I wouldn't mind the abrupt change from dark to complete white. :3 If I could vote, you would have my vote. ^^

Re: Underworld Blossom

uuhhhh!!! how did i miss this design. and no. do not change the color. pink is not my favorite either, but this picture needs is. it just wouldn't work with another color. i wouldn't buy it in another color cause it would just weaken the whole design.
