ript_hounds-red-ale_1405919704.full

07/21/14 Top Pick; Hound’s Red Ale

“You lived your life for the king. You gonna die for some chickens?”

“Someone is.” What a bad ass quote for a bad ass Hound!

07/21/14 Top Pick; The Incredible Imp

“Perhaps you should speak to me more softly then. Monsters are dangerous and just now kings are dying like flies. “

07/17/2014 Top Pick; Vitruvian Gollum

07/17/2014 Top Pick; War is Coming

“Apes together, strong!”  I LOVED this movie! Totally love Andy Serkis. Gollum and Caesar the Ape!

star Composition – Bold, intense simplified image of this incredible leader. This shirt also glows in the dark!

star Texture – Nice contrast between the well-shaped nooks and crannies of the positive and negative space. This creates a great rough texture. The lighter areas give the face dimension and contrast nicely with the enthralling dark eyes. Caesar looks intense!

teefury_almost-there_1405484150_full

star Composition – Simple yet effective and elegant composition. The beautiful figure is surrounded by a detailed frame.

Hey guys!! Sorry for the long hiatus, but I am back from vacation and ready to share some awesome shirt designs!

7/14/14 Top Pick; Hot Wheels to the Future

“When this baby hits 88mph… you’re gonna see some serious shit.”

star Concept – Wonderful mash-up of the Hot Wheels toy cars with the Delorean from Back to the Future.

star Composition – I really enjoy the combination of the well rendered vehicle with the altered Hot Wheels logo. The motion conveyed by the shape of the banner with flames describes the speed of this infamous time traveling machine.

teebusters_revenge-is-coming_1405336608_full

7/14/14 Top Pick; Revenge is Coming

star Texture – Wonderful hatching used to articulate the wiry wolf fur. The short thin strokes also create nice complexity in the design.

star Color – I really enjoy the contrast and transition of the warm oranges and yellows in the bottom to the cool blues and grays in the top of the design.

star Composition – The design is tilted on its vertical axis creating wonderful dynamic excitement. The swipe like stokes help exaggerate the tilt and create action.

Thank You NinjaInk

07/01/2014 Top Picks – Daily Shirt Designs

Good and evil. Light and dark. Positive and negative. Day and night. Any of these dichotomies could describe the relationship between adoptive brothers Thor and Loki. I present this conflict today in the form of two designs.

ript_loki-tut_1404192085.full

It’s not hard to imagine Loki embracing his power and status among the ancient civilizations is it? With that charm, wit, and cunning one couldn’t help but feel the presence of a god.

07/01/14 Top Pick; Loki-Tut

star Composition –  Bold, well-balanced render of this God of Mischief.

star Texture – I love the repeated horizontal lines in this design creating dynamic patterns. The small intricate lines create a variety of textures throughout the design. I especially enjoy the circular lines in the horns.

Thank You Jimiyo

Buy This Shirt! Loki-Tut

 

shirtpunch_god-of-thunder-retur_1404188185.full

The metaphorical “light in the darkness” comes through here quite literally with the God of Thunder, Thor! While he may not be able to match Loki’s brains, he makes up for it with his formidable brawn. He also has a great butt, just ask Natalie Portman. :P

07/01/14 Top Pick; God of Thunder Returns

star Composition – Beautiful and dynamic angle. The figure is also in a great action pose.

star Color – Wonderful use of positive and negative space. I really enjoy the teal thin outline around the negative space figure. The bright stark thunder bolt creates a wonderful contrast against the dark scene.

Thank You Six Eyed Monster
