When you gotta have bento you gotta have bento.
Re: Mister Roboto
Great idea. I wish it were a little less obscure, though.
Re: Japanese Fighting Fish
Kanji verfication: 侍魚
侍魚: No meaning but a logical compound. Plausible.
Kanji verification: 勝利
Re: The Samurai and the Sea Dragon
Kanji verification: 侍海龍
龍: Chinese-type dragon
侍海龍: No meaning. There is no known compound 海龍. Supposing that is ignored, to say "samurai and ocean dragon" it would need to say 侍と海龍.
I'm conflicted on this shirt, it looks amazing and I love the design, but just not digging the kanji. I would wear it if not for the hokey japanese writing, I think the art makes a more powerful statement when it's left to speak for itself.
Big Girl Tokyo rocks! Good luck, I hope it wins!
Re: Plaid Ninja
oh... my eyes! >.<
Re: She Never Sleeps
Kanji verification: 悪魔
Re: Dragon Maiden
I started out just sketching in photoshop earlier in the evening and ended up staying up all night to finish this piece. Hope you like how it turned out (and hopefully it'll still look the same when I wake up)

Re: Things from Japan (final sub)
Kanji verification: 自然界, 食べ物, 人, 動物、日本
動物: Incorrect character (first kanji). The intended character is what I've written here, but in the design it is illegible with a major stroke error. If it were correct it would say animals.
Man I am really not on the ball with this derby- Anyway, this was a sketch that I was working on earlier in the evening and I ended up staying up all night to finish it. I went through a lot of versions of this, so hopefully it'll look the same when I wake up in the morning
databit wrote:Well, Domo Arigato is a very informal statement anyway. I think the formal is Domo Arigato Gu Sai mas (not sure of spelling)
But it also depends on the amount of respect you are paying to the person you are thanking so since this was the lowest respect version of the statement, maybe Mr. Roboto was offended and did not want to say "Your welcome."
I'm pretty sure the levels of politeness are more along the lines of
Arigatou (least polite)
Domo Arigatou (Middle)
Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu (most polite)
You also have to keep in mind the musical aspect of rythm, the extra syllables may have been left out for a reason.
The perspective on the umbrella seems a little odd, but the colors really pop on the shirt! Overall, I like it.
Am I wrong, or is this one hilarious 300 reference?

I forgot to explain, for those who don't know, the Japanese text translates

Re: Prehistoric Japan
nice detail with the bow in the tiger's hair...lol
Re: Kami of the Earth
This is really nice. I would have loved a nice warm brown for the tree. Either way you GMV.
Re: Super Awesome
Looks like a candy bar brand.
this is really, really good.
I'd buy this no question.
consider this.....A VOTE!
I think this is a good effort, Ramy. I appreciate the deviation from your normal style. Just not sure about the teal squiggly/wavey tail - it seems too sketchy and rough to me.
you're really riding the wave of success lately!
Re: Rising Sun Samurai
very light and dreamy. Almost half-tone heaven...
I'm usually your biggest fan... but didn't you submit a dragon shirt that looks JUST LIKE THIS like... a derby or two ago???
Soot Gremlins! Dirty dirtys Soot Gremlins. So how many times do I have to wash this shirt to get it clean?
Oh and I like the typically late soot gremlin!
My favorite shirt in the competition so far - I really do hope it wins. Insta-buy for me! Great work Kdeuce!
I like this, but not against the gray. It just seems a bland backdrop to the bright colors.
Re: Spirit of the Mountain Pass
Kanji verification: 美永遠
永遠: eternity; immortality, although the second character is illegible; the bottom part of the right radical is distorted beyond readability; the only reason I knew what it was supposed to be is because the artist said what it meant.
美永遠: No meaning.
Re: Sakura by the cliff
SO pretty. I can't see this one not fogging. GMV.

I agree! I'm sorry to see this not in the fog. Needs more votes!
This would be perfect to wear for yoga
Any issues with copyright on this? I hope not. I love My Neighbor Totoro and I'd be in for one of these. GMV.
