Problem is, I can't see the appeal of wearing it on a shirt.
I understand that, and here's the thing, I made this just because I felt like drawing it. I've been practicing more on drawing people without any references so I've been drawing things like this anyway. I certainly wasn't motivated by the idea of winning seeing as how my interest and success here has ... been less than optimal. But when I saw the theme and imagined all the off topic designs featuring your favorite characters and games with little or nothing to do with an actual LIFESTYLE, and imaging some comments like "Well, why didn't YOU do something" I thought, why not actually try to show an example of something on theme, whether it's appealing as a shirt or not, and show how miserably it would fail. Problem is, I'm more interested in improving as an artist than catering my designs to what I think people want, which is why I've been M.I.A. lately. So I do appreciate the fact that you like the execution. Thank you.
