Inspired by one of my favorite arcade games, and that guy who smashes watermelons.

edit: BTW, My first derby was exactly 1 year ago. Happy Wootiversary to me!

Nice update.
Would still like to see some frizzy hair, but...

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

Well, there's only so much frizz one can muster with 64 pixels. Thanks!

GMV, very well done. I loves me a good Gallagher gag.

After that last spate of rejections, I'm surprised you didn't get dinged. Fog privilege?

My favorite so far, here's to hoping it doesn't get rejected!

Also, I think the composition would be more effective and less cluttered if you get rid of that watermelon that's shooting something in the lower left; "Galaga" otherwise is a little lost in the fray. Just my 2c.

Nah, I think it's because the Gallagher reference doesn't require the Galaga sprites to work. The others were game characters doing real-world things, which isn't a reinterpretation of the title.

I'd be sad if there was forced abstraction to the point where we'd just get a weird shirt with Gallagher on it щ(ºДºщ)

The tractor beam is the most distinguishing element of Galaga and is fundamental to the design.

After seeing the thumbnail, I didn't understand why this was in the fog ...until... I clicked and saw the whole design. Brilliant!

I would have preferred it if it had 1UP and HIGH SCORE at the top, but oh well.

GMV (especially since Galaga is my all-time favorite game)

Nothing Gallagher is EVER funny or clever, but this is about as close as it's gotten.
