Re: Underworld Blossom



A reworking of an older design from the spring derby of yore. It is Persephone, goddess of spring, bringing whatever manner of mirth she can to gloom-riddled Hades.

Version 2 is here.

Thanks for the awesome help in the pre-derby thread. J5 suggested switching from creme to light blue, and that ended up looking pretty good, so big thanks there, too!

Hey, look. Medusa! Or maybe Euryale.

Just something I wanted to do. Halfway through I wanted to make it a side print but it wasn't long or graceful enough for that to work, so center it is.

Hopefully the red drippiness is artsy enough that it doesn't look all gross and gory. It's supposed to represent Medusa's beheading, obviously, but I thought the profile with the shoulders/collarbone area flowed better than just being cut off at the neck.

Four colors on navy.

I LOVE the drawing... but, beshouldering is kind of odd... I would adore an alternate version with a Stone Bust... for irony...

People say I'm lazy
dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me

When I tell them that I'm doing fine
watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball

Why light blue?! I thought it was on tan! Still +1.

I like them both- maybe creme a bit more for this design since it ages it a bit more. But for whatever reason it's such an unpopular color to actually wear as a tee, so I'll go with the light blue for this one.

It was a game time decision, so I might put creme in the mix after I look at it with a fresh pair of eyes later...

Thx for the unconditional vote, though.

< Art critic hat>
The blue is harmonious with the scene, and sets the atmosphere as "in the moment"
The creme removes the immediacy and sets the tone as a rendering of an event on a disconnected medium.

As the artist, it's your vision.


p.s. your line work is to die.

I have a very similar concept, but with a different approach.

Very nice!

Re: Pandora's Box

Looks really great on the tee, nice use of light and dark and the shirt space.

Vote!

This is a great concept; I'll buy almost anything with stars or planets, but this is really lovely.

Awesome!! Such a well-done and epic design at first glance and yet such a silly scene upon further examination! Zeus is so powerful with his unlimited lightning bolts and poor triton-less Poseidon has all the fish in the sea...

The connection to Greece is through Greek mythology. The design references Homer's Iliad, in which Polyphemus, one of the Cyclopes, tended a flock of sheep.

Re: Battle of the GODS!



I'm OK with the distance here, looks like you seperated them a little more from your pre-derby close version. I do like them better a little farther apart, but having larger art is a bonus.

I also like it better on blue, makes the shirt color look more part of the design, like it could be the sky/sea behind them.

I was actually advised to submit a version with the original white instead of orange... I will probably do this but it won't be up until tonight.

I know it's a little late but since you're already mentioning a possible resubmission, let me just say that I was expecting her to have a pomegranate in her hand, not a flower since that's what kept her connected to the underworld. Also, I would like it if the dogs looked a little bit more scary, or at least kept the colors of the setting more (blues, grays)... I like the orange though.
