Thanks Adder--
He's supposed to be a ghost, but I'm not sure how well that comes through.

I like it! Honest Abe kicking ass is always welcome on a t-shirt.

I think you misinterpreted. One shade of blue, one shade of orange. Maybe take a look at the shirts in the fog.

The line that curves up into the palm makes the hand seem all floppy. The dragon doesn't do that, but it's thumb is facing you so you drew it differently. Other than that small critique it's great!



Thanks, man! Lemme tell you what I was thinking on the tiger's hand: paws are kinda these huge floppy things without much dexterity, so I stayed true to that. Dragons basically have people-hands, so I just my own hand as a reference.


This guy couldn't make much of a fist, but he could probably wear mittens.

I didn't set out to "sell" anyone's trademarks. Of the five or so designs I was inspired to try for this derby - the first tee-shirt designing I have ever attempted - this is the only one that approached anyone else's proprietorial imagery. It's also the only one that even slightly worked... (Way down there in the voting you can spot a second failed sub of mine with purple-and-yellow trains.)

Basically I just thought the police box would look good in blue-and-orange. I certainly haven't continually submitted pop designs (though I did think of one more police box design last night!) nor do I intend to do so again unless there's a really great concept.

I may not even submit another design again - this isn't really my thing - but when I do it won't be about trying to sell someone else's trademarks, or even my own. I don't expect to ever get any money from this gig - I just liked the challenge of trying to put together something to the specifications of this derby.

And it was fun.


Thanks everybody!

This is awesome. I love the style, and the bizzaro concept is really great too. It might be my favorite in the derby.

Right, manikx66 did a good job of using halftone to represent a darker shade of yellow

Re: Worth two...in the savanna?



Welcome to the derby, penichillin!
I wouldn't mind a closer look at the design, maybe zoom in on the art & add a small tee presentation on the side. Good work tho!

For those who might be too young to know, that is Charles Darwin and Abe Lincoln depicted on the t-shirt. Both were born on the say day and same year on February 12th 1809.

Awesome shirt. I voted!

I like the subtle use of orange in this one, so much that it's almost a one-color shirt. Great stuff.

Amazing illustration - I love how you curved the leaf into the wolf's head. The texture is awesome too I don't know if I'd wear it, but you've got my vote anyway for the illustration itself.

Great design, but am I missing the use of complimentary colours? Just asking, I skipped over the rules fairly quickly. Might need some orange...

I like how you matched the shapes of the dragon and the tiger but stayed true to the tiger's anatomy. Really nice shirt.

Re: Dragons Blow



I don't think your mid-century art dragon (I mean duck) got enough votes. Maybe this dragon will get it done. Good luck!
