Re: The Fourth Horseman
Love the concept/humor, Ramy.

Death standing on a horse that is laying down. The position and size of Death and the way the horse's legs are make this a bit awkward for me. It's like Death is a low budget circus performer.
The expression on the horse's face is off to me. Maybe it would be better if he had teeth?
I agree that the horse is off, but it's definitely not lying down. Would you like some tacky motion marks or would you then just complain that it's spasming on the floor, legs akimbo? It's a cartoon horse doing a cartoony run. Its expression throws me off--and teeth might be the reason. I kind of get the impression of a cracked out pony that forgot to put in its dentures.
And Death would, at the most, have to be kneeling on the pony--you can see the line of Death's bent knee in his cloak. I guess he could have some non-human physiology under there. If he had goat legs he could be standing on the horse.
In between Death's hand and the penguin, there is something that looks like a loch ness monster with udders.
Are you talking about the pony's tail? -.- I think you're grasping at straws with that criticism.
Did you and Walmazan call each other to decide what to wear to school today?
You know, it's really funny you say that because---

---these types of comments are *not* on Walz's 4th horseman shirt. I can understand disliking a specific person. But borderline hypocrisy is something else entirely.
FWIW, I think it's a stretch for the theme as well. Definitely lots of better subject matter to plunder.

I don't think anyone would make a creme shirt I would buy and then actually wear. Right now I have 2, one from random-shirt roulette and one that I bought before I really though about a creme shirt would look like.
