The brush strokes are SO RICH, but the oval is so simple...

I know white is not a popular shirt color, but I think it would look awesome in a white shirt without the oval ;)

Part of what I love about this design is the background in the oval: is raven silhouetted against the moon? is the oval the view through binoculars? is the light source a city and there's commentary about urbanization, or could it be a spotlight outside a rural home, someone fearing a visit from the raven and standing watch? If the design were on white, the choices about the background would be more difficult, I think (how far to extend it?) and it would leave fewer questions for the viewer, IMHO.

Though I'm usually not a fan of such solidly defined frames for artwork on tees, it works here for me. It makes me think of an old, vintage cameo which fits the mood of this design.

Thank you Omar but I keep as it is because black seems cool choice for a Poe based design but I consider your suggestion for a second version, thank you buddy =D

Totally indeed! Thank you very much.

Re: The Raven


Very beautiful and evocative! I'd like the shirt a little better if the design was a bit smaller, rather than taking up the whole shirt. Really nice work though!

Being a corviphile (not sure if that's a word), love your raven. It has an enchanted feel to it.

I agree 100% maybe a faded gradient... I don't know, if it wasn't because of the oval I'd buy it for sure, I really love the traces!!
