Thanks guys! I'm still green at halftones so this design took me about ten hours! O.o

Oh--and Joel, I promise that's just scribbling on that scroll. No text.

Re: Inspired By The Phantom Tollbooth



Dude, Draxxx I hate you because you have the more efficient version of my style. I get sucked into endless nitpickery of minute detail within a design, but you somehow manage to always maitain a broad sense of the design as a whole, while still adding tons of cool detail.

Honestly, I think that I just get too concerned with making things look realistic accurate, and proportionate. I need to just draw!

In any event, this came out good. I would have like to see a little more lighting/shading/rendering variation from you - I know you're capable of it, and maybe using colors that aren't so safe/plain. Overall, though, can't complain too much about the final product. It works well as cohesive design and as a shirt, so good luck with it!

For all the hate I see you take, Tgentry, I just have to say that you create the most consistently WEARABLE designs on this site. There are many amazing artists on this site, but not all of the designs are something I want to wear. This however, I could see myself wearing regularly. Keep it up!

Without gravity we wouldn't have rain, and thus no rainbows, so you see rainbows and gravity are soulmates. They complete each other, he he.

Anyway, once again solid idea with simple clean execution proves to be the most efficient way to get a shirt printed. Well done, I can definitely see this one winning. It's very WOOT.

Terrific character. I agree, the hair strewn all over the place is hilarious.

I love the shading on it, it's just amazing- I am very slightly bothered by the placement on the shirt, but not enough to make me like it any less Great entry

Very Very Well thought out. Took me a 2nd look, but I think it is a great design... Most likely won't win because people don't like to think, so they won't like this one... I'm pulling for yea!

I read it in high school and found it a little dry, but I usually don't appreciate classic literature. The only one I liked of the few that I've read is The Count of Monte Cristo.



HAHAHA, pirates, and flying sharks and cool fire? Who knew classic literature could be so awesome!

I didn't say it was. I said it should be considered an overused subject. As far as I know no one has ever once complained that these are done a lot, even though everyone seems to hate memes with a passion. Trees, birds, koi fish, dragons, pirates, ninjas. All I am saying is women morphing into stuff should probably be grouped in that category.

I think that Melanie Gideon's novel from a few years ago may have been more popular to some had it's title been interpreted more literally...

Wait- does that mean you like my design? BTW, I'm disappointed the halftones look so weird on the design detail, and I was thinking about figuring that out and resubbing. What do you think?

I feel like the halftones are a BIT overkill... could you smooth that out a bit and possibly clean it up? I don't think it needs so much in the way of halftones.

I do like the concept, however. Very well done on that point.

I want to buy this for my son so when he visits his grandmother, whose vision is failing, she will constantly try to "fix" his shirt. Like the egg too...good work TG.
